On May 10, JYP Entertainment released a statement about the members’ mental health and the group’s upcoming comeback.
The statement reads:
“Hello, this is JYP Entertainment.
First, we would like to apologize for delivering such unfortunate news on the eve of DAY6’s comeback. Recently, some of the members showed symptoms of psychological anxiety and received a detailed examination. The medical advice was that they needed sufficient rest and stability. After careful discussions between the agency and the members, we resolved to temporarily suspend team promotions, including promotions for this upcoming album, in order to focus on recovering their health.
We ask for your understanding in suddenly suspending promotions before the release of a new album. As an agency, we promise to do our best to put the members’ health first and focus on improving their condition. We will notify you about the details of their return to promotions as the time comes. We ask for your support and love so that DAY6 can stand fully recovered as a team once again.”
DAY6’s new album, “The Book of Us: The Demon,” is scheduled for release on May 11. Although the group will not be promoting the album, the release date remains unchanged.

Wow, this must be a really difficult time for them :( I hope they’re given enough time to rest and know their fans are appreciative of their hard work and are sympathetic to what they’re going through.
