The agency announced:
"Hello. This is KQ Entertainment. This is a notification about the health condition of one of ATEEZ's members, Jongho. Recently, Jongho's knee felt uncomfortable, so he visited the hospital, and he was diagnosed with a minor knee bone injury.
Even if it's just a minor injury, he won't be participating in the intense choreography for the recovery of his left ankle from his previous injury and the comeback of the new album in September.
In order to recover, he will not be dancing with all the choreography for the new album's comeback content, etc., which were released consecutively. Therefore, he will not be dancing in the Japanese online event starting today.
Jongho is recovering well, and this is to ensure his participation on stage and activities for the new album 'ZERO: FEVER Part 3'. We ask for the understanding and we will do our best so he can recover quickly.
ATEEZ itself has been scheduled to make a comeback with 'ZERO: FEVER Part 3' on September 13th, 2021 at 18:00 KST. (www.onkpop.com)
