TWICE member Jeongyeon will be going on another hiatus, indefinitely. Back in October 2020, the K-pop artist took her first break to look after her mental health, which lasted for three months.

This time around, Jeongyeon “is currently experiencing panic and psychological anxiety,” as per JYP Entertainment’s announcement. “Although Jeongyeon was moving forward with her schedule by simultaneously taking action for recovery, we value our artists’ health as the most important issue. Therefore, after deep discussions internally accompanied by professional medical measures, we have decided that it is needed for Jeongyeon to have sufficient time to focus on her recovery and rest,” the company continued.

Jeongyeon is actually not the only TWICE member that has gone on hiatus to put her mental health first. In 2019, Mina did not take part in the group’s TWICELIGHTS world tour because of “sudden extreme anxiety and insecurity toward performing on stage,” JYP stated at the time.

“After discussions with Jeongyeon herself and other TWICE members, we inform you that Jeongyeon will be unable to attend TWICE’s activity for a while in [the] future schedule. As the artist label, we will provide the best procedures for Jeongyeon to recover with a sufficient amount of time. We kindly ask for your love and support for Jeongyeon’s full recovery,” JYP concluded its statement.

After the news broke out, ONCEs have been showing their love and support on Twitter through the hashtag #WeLoveYouJeongyeon.
