CARATs, we’ve got some bad news for you.
In case if you’ve missed it, Pledis Entertainment announced yesterday (Monday, 18th November) that SEVENTEEN leader S.Coups (에스쿱스) will halt all his scheduled activities with his group to receive treatment for his anxiety.

According to the record label, the decision was made by S.Coups (real name Choi Seung Cheol) as well as the other members of the award-winning boy band. Their official statement reads:
“Hello, this is Pledis Entertainment. We would like to make an official announcement in regards to the health condition of S.Coups.
S.Coups has recently been undergoing a detailed examination and diagnosis of his health, due to symptoms of anxiety. And after thorough discussion, all of the Seventeen members – including S.Coups himself – have decided that it would be best for him to take his time off and temporarily abstain from participating in SEVENTEEN’s activities.
“We sincerely apologise to all fans who have continued showing their love and support for SEVENTEEN. We further express our hopes for your kind understanding, as we have made this decision to prioritise our member’s health and well-being. We will make sure to continue trying our best to protect our artists.
In addition, we sincerely hope that there will be no excessive assumptions or misunderstandings regarding the health of S.Coups. We will make further announcements accordingly in regard to his recovery and future activities. Thank you.”
As a response to the unfortunate news, CARATs have came up with the hashtags #WeLoveYouSCOUPS and #GetWellSoonSCoups on Twitter to show their loves and supports towards the 24-year-old idol. Check out some of their tweets below:
