With the recent rumors circulating around Lovelyz member Seo Jisoo, she was hospitalized and will not be participating in the group’s debut promotional activities for now.
On November 12th, Woollim Entertainement told Newsen, “Seo Jisoo′s mental stage of shock is great. We′ve come to the conclusion that it′s impossible to carry out normal activities and decided she will not be attending the showcase. We decided to hold onto her shaking heart and take care of her body first. We decided that postponing activities for the moment is the right thing.”
The rumors about Jisoo consist of her bullying other girls and taking provocative photos of them without their consent, along with her questionable sexuality.
Because of all of this, Jisoo is suffering both mentally and physically, It is has been said that she cannot eat properly and she hasn’t been able to participate during the group’s practices due to her weakened body.
An affiliate of Woollim told Newsen on the 12th, “Seo Jisoo has received so much shock that she hasn′t even been able to drink water. She struggled through practice on November 11th. In the end, we decided for her to rest. She was in much agony with the public gaze on her. She woke up on November 12th with a pale face. It’s been sad watching her.”
With the recent update of Jisoo being hospitalized now, it shows how serious her physical state has gotten.
Woollim told Newsen on the 12th that, “Seo Jisoo headed to the hospital this morning and was hospitalized after making the decision that it is better to do so. We will be following the doctor’s orders once she receives her diagnosis.”
Woollim is going to take legal actions against the falsified rumors, stated in their official Facebook page post on the 9th.
On November 10th, Jisoo, along with agency representatives, went to the Seoul Mapo Police Station to begin investigations regarding the rumors, with the agency sending additional evidence to the police on the 11th.
With her absence at Lovelyz’s debut showcase at K Art Hall in Olympic Park on the 12th, the other members spoke up about what has been going on.
MC Dingdong said, “Seo Jisoo’s mental state has become serious to the point where she could not carry out daily life activities so the agency announced this morning that she will defer all activities for now. I hope that the police investigation can wrap up quickly so that she can stand on this spot.”
Leader Baby Soul also added, “We came with alert minds. We’re grateful that so many people came to our showcase. We are actually nervous and feel bad that only seven of us are here, since Jisoo couldn’t come, but we will show you entertaining performances that can fill Jisoo’s empty spot.”
