Jeongyeon of South Korean girl group TWICE will be taking another break from activities due to health reasons.

In a statement on Wednesday, the group's agency, JYP Entertainment announced that due to symptoms of panic and psychological anxiety, the 24-year-old singer will not be participating in TWICE’s scheduled activities for the time being in order to focus on her recovery.

"Jeongyeon is currently experiencing panic and psychological anxiety," the statement read.

"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," it added.


In October last year, Jeongyeon took temporary hiatus due to psychological anxiety. She then resumed activities for the group's latest album "Taste of Love" earlier this year.

"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 future schedule," the agency stated.

Shortly after the announcement, ONCEs all over the world trended the hashtag #WeLoveYouJeongyeon, leaving messages of hope and encouragement to the Kpop idol.

Debuted in 2015, TWICE is a nine-member girl group composed of Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung, and Tzuyu.


The group is widely known for their hits “I Can’t Stop Me,” “TT” and “Feel Special.”
