TRI.BE's Jinha to take time off due to health issues
Jinha, a member of girl group TRI.BE will be taking a time off from group activities, the group’s label TR Entertainment announced Tuesday.
“We realized that Jinha has been suffering from health issues while preparing for a new album,” the label said in a statement. “We hoped to see her get better soon so that TRI.BE can release a new album with her, but unfortunately, Jinha will have to take a rest and focus on getting better as her doctor recommended."
The label added that Jinha’s doctor recommended that it’s necessary for her to take time off from the stage.
“We discussed this issue with Jinha and the other members and decided to focus on improving Jinha’s condition. Until Jinha returns to TRI.BE, the girl group will operate as a six-member group.”
The label also added it hopes others will also show their support for Jinha who will be working hard to recover from her condition and asked that people refrain from making any assumptions or rumors about her temporarily leaving the group.
TRI.BE, pronounced try-be, debuted last year with the EP “TRI.BE DA Loca.” The seven members are leader Songsun, Kelly, Jinha, Hyunbin, Jia, Soeun and Mire. It was the first K-pop group to be put together by the world’s biggest music company Universal Music and Korea’s esteemed music producer Sinsadong Tiger.
