Monsta X Hyungwon to sit out due to health issues
Starship Entertainment and Monsta X released a statement through the groups fan Cafe announcing that Hyungwon will be sitting out for a bit due to health issues and the group will be promoting as 6 members.
Hyungwon is suffering from initial stages of cellulitis. Cellulitis is a common bacterial skin infection that can potentially be quite serious. It usually shows up as a swollen, tender red patch of skin that feels warm to the touch. If left untreated, it can spread throughout the body, but is not a bacteria that can be spread person to person.
According to their statement, he noticed there was a mark on his knee during a Music Bank performance and had it examined. Lower leg infections, including the knee, are actually the most common locations.
According to the report, he will be sitting out the first Hong Kong concert.
Wishing him a speedy recovery and hopefully he gets enough rest!
