Therefore, it will be difficult for him to participate in Golden Child's schedule for a while, and we will inform you of his return to activities in the future.”

On Feb. 13, the agency issued a statement to say that Bomin will resume his activities while he is still undergoing rehabilitation.

“We notify about Golden Child member Choi Bomin's health status and activities. Golden Child member Choi Bomin operated on the opinion of the medical staff due to a facial fracture in September last year, and his health has improved a lot with steady rehabilitation,” Woollim Entertainment said.

It added, “Currently, Choi Bomin is undergoing rehabilitation treatment, but he will participate in the upcoming Golden Child schedule and personal schedule after discussing with the medical staff.”

“We would like to express our sincere gratitude to many fans who have been worried, and we will do our best to support and work hard to focus on rehabilitation and health recovery until Choi Bomin recovers completely,” it said.
