Myoui Mina (名井 南), or better known as Mina (미나) will be taking a hiatus for the time being, and that includes duties as a TWICE (트와이스) member.
JYP Entertainment issued an official statement earlier today. The agency provided fans with an update on the 22-year-old singer health condition.
JYP’s full statement reads:
“Hello, This is JYPE
We would like to announce in regards to Mina’s health condition and status.
Mina is currently struggling with sudden extreme anxiety and insecurity toward performing on stage. No exact diagnosis has been identified yet. We are consulting with several medical professionals to verify the cause in detail.
After extensive discussion with Mina and members of TWICE, we have decided that Mina’s current condition requires additional treatment, professional measures, and sufficient resting. Along with this decision, Mina will not be attending the following schedule:

Health of our artist is our top priority and most important thing. Thus, we will do our everything to provide proper and best medical treatment and sufficient resting for Mina’s recovery.
We sincerely ask for fans’ support so that Mina can get well soon. Thank you.”
IME Productions also confirmed that Mina won’t be joining her fellow girl-group when they return to Malaysia for their “Twicelights” concert on 17th August 2019.
Let’s hope she’ll better soon 😉
