Onew from boy band SHINee is recovering after vocal chord surgery last week, IdolWow! can confirm.
A rep at SM Entertainment revealed today: “On June 3, Onew underwent vocal polyp removal and vocal fold reconstruction surgery at a hospital in Seoul.”
The surgery explains why the 24-year-old boy band star was mysteriously absent from SHINee’s recent appearance on KBS2’s Music Bank, which saw boys head to Brazil for a special episode.
His spokesman continues: “While it is not detrimental to everyday life, he will for the meanwhile be resting and receiving outpatient treatment.”
