The management for THE BOYZ has given an update on Sunwoo’s health and his ability to take part in return promotions. On November 24, IST Entertainment stated that Sunwoo had reported discomfort in his neck and shoulders. Initially, the agency had intended to take Sunwoo to the hospital for diagnosis and treatment right away; however, Sunwoo had expressed a strong desire to participate in THE BOYZ’s performance on that day’s episode of “Music Bank,” so they waited until after the pre-recording to take him there.
After Sunwoo went to the hospital, IST Entertainment released a statement that evening saying he had been diagnosed with neuralgia and neuritis in the neck and shoulders.
Here is the statement posted by IST Entertainment:

Doctors have ordered Sunwoo “to minimize excessive movement for the time being,” but he has reportedly shown “strong determination” to participate in THE BOYZ’s return promotions for their new album, which was released this week. Thus, he will carry on “insofar as he can without overexerting himself.”
