TWICE's Mina to Sit Out Upcoming Events Due to Health Concerns

TWICE’s Mina will be absent from an upcoming event that the group is participating in for Pocari Sweat.

On July 5, TWICE’s agency shared the following statement:

Hello. This is JYPE.

This is an announcement that TWICE member Mina will be absent from the event noted below due to health reasons.

– Pocari Challenge Teen Festa (July 7)

Her absence was inevitably decided as the judgment was made that rest and appropriate measures are necessary for the health of the artist. Regarding the sudden news of her absence, we ask for the understanding of fans who have been looking forward to this event.

If there are additional schedule changes, they will be revealed through future announcements.

We will focus our full effort into Mina’s quick recovery.

We once again thank fans for your understanding.

Umm sitting out one event doesn’t seem to be enough if she has health issues...at least give her a couple of days

They're giving her three days. But I;m pretty fucking sure it's not enough since she was sick for a while now, and has a knee problem they are yet to address.

Ohh thanks for the additional info! I thought it was just for that particular event. It’s messed up that they made her fly that day even though fans could tell she wasn’t feeling well at the airport. I hope it’s not a chronic problem or illness. I can’t imagine her handling the idol life with a chronic condition. It seems like you basically have to be an athlete to withstand the idol life but without the proper rest and rejuvenation that athletes get. Im also kinda worried after reading about that DIA member that the knee issue could be due to malnutrition but we’ll see if those days off help her recover.

Malnutrition.. this is something I've not seen a single person in the fandom discuss, they don't even want to think about it and I kinda understand why. Tho not all knee problems are the same, and I'm not about to say this is what Mina has, but tbch Mina has always caught my eye in the worst way possible. Cuz whenever I see the other members enjoying a meal, Mina would almost always be on the side doing something else, or she'd take a bite which she will chew on for hours. I don't know.. I just hope it's my overactive imagination making me see things, or blowing this out of proportion..

Tho you'd think her being a ballerina for 11 years would prepare her for hard work and no eating. But then again maybe she's used to that and it's the constant flying she's not used to.

It could very well be a condition left over from her ballet days but with how female idols are expected to be below 50kg by their companies no matter their height and metabolism i wouldn’t be surprised if it’s led to other issues. I just hope those few days will help her and it’s not a chronic condition

I hope so to.
