Heechul is one of Super Junior‘s most popular members, but he revealed on a Weibo Livestream that he will be sitting out the group’s next comeback due to health issues.
During his livestream, he talked about how he was unable to travel to Macau with the group, where they are expected to film their comeback music video and for Super TV 2.
“I didn’t go to Macau and I don’t think I will participate in the activities for this album. I thought about this a lot, but I didn’t go to Macau because of issues with my leg and my health. And health comes first… Our petals (Heechul’s fanclub name) and ELF’s have to stay healthy too.”
Heechul revealed he doesn’t want to participate in the album if he can’t fully commit himself to it.
“Since I am not fully healthy, if I only film the music video and the jacket but don’t participate in the comeback, it seems tactless and I would feel sorry and bad. I also didn’t participate in the song recording.”
Finally, he mentioned how sorry he felt to Ryeowook for not being able to promote with him, as he was just discharged from the military.
“I’m taking good care of Kyuhyun, since the two of us have bad health. Our Ryeowook-ie was just discharged from the military and I’m sorry to him. I wanted to have activities and promotions with him too.”
