ENHYPEN’s Sunghoon has undergone surgery for rhinitis after experiencing discomfort and has gone on hiatus to recover. The news came via BELIFT LAB on February 2nd, just days after BTS Jimin’s urgent operation for acute appendicitis and COVID-19 infection was announced.
The representative agency of ENHYPEN explained that the surgical intervention was carried out on January 29th so that he can be treated during the South Korean holidays for the Lunar New Year 2022 and that the idol is currently doing well.
As for his schedule, the famous 19-year-old Korean will be taking a break on medical advice. For this reason, he will not be making the role of MC on Music Bank with IVE’s Wonyoung, and will instead be taking over from fellow ENHYPEN member Jungwon.

“Hello, this is BELIFT LAB.
We would like to inform fans that ENHYPEN member Sunghoon will not be able to MC this week’s Music Bank broadcast.
Sunghoon has been experiencing discomfort singing and carrying out his daily life due to years of rhinitis symptoms, and on January 29th, he underwent surgery to treat it during the Lunar New Year holidays. According to medical experts, Sunghoon needs time to rest and recover, so he is currently taking a break.
Currently, Sunghoon is recovering well, but he will not be appearing as Music Bank’s MC to get enough rest. ENHYPEN member Jungwon will be participating as a special MC on his behalf.
We will put the health and safety of our artists first, and do our best to help Sunghoon be with fans in a healthy condition. Thanks“.
