By Kim Gyu-bin, Correspondent
Lia, a member of the popular girl group ITZY, will be temporarily suspending her activities, as announced by JYP Entertainment, the agency representing the group.
On the 18th, a statement was posted on ITZY’s official fan page, explaining that Lia has been experiencing extreme tension and anxiety regarding her hectic schedule. To address this, she has sought counseling and medical examination. The medical staff advised that Lia needs stability and treatment to prioritize her health and well-being.
Considering the gravity of the situation and after thoroughly discussing with the other members, it has been decided that Lia will not be participating in any scheduled activities for the time being. Instead, she will be taking a much-needed rest and focusing on her treatment.
In light of this, future group schedules will not involve Lia. Furthermore, the fandom private messaging service known as ‘Bubble’ will be temporarily shut down.
In a heartfelt handwritten letter, Lia expressed her gratitude towards the fandom, known as “MIDZY”. She reflected on the precious six years spent together with the members pursuing their shared dream, emphasizing her appreciation for their support. However, she also acknowledged the toll her relentless schedule was taking on her well-being and recognized the need to prioritize self-love and self-care.
ITZY, the talented girl group, released their 7th mini album ‘KILL MY DOUBT’ in July. Additionally, they are set to release their first Japanese full-length album ‘RINGO’ on the 18th of next month.

Thank you to our members and our members. CENTRAL that we can come this far.” It was such precious time, but I realized that I was losing myself more and more because I was running.
