Eunjin of DIA was taken to the hospital following health difficulties during their comeback showcase, but made a recovery by the next day.
During the showcase, Eunjin was seen having difficulties with the choreography, eventually stopping altogether. In the middle of the showcase, she disappeared off stage. The MCs explained that Eunjin had previously taken medicine on an empty stomach due to her busy schedule and had been taken to the hospital after experiencing difficulties breathing. Member Huihyeon said, “On top of the press conference, I think that the time we’ve put into meeting everyone has taken a toll on our bodies. We will go and see Eunjin at the hospital later.” She added, “It seems wrong to the fans not to tell them what’s going on.” The other DIA members also later apologized for the unexpected incident.
A representative of MBK Entertainment provided an update on Eunjin on April 20 and said, “Eunjin was discharged from the hospital in the early hours of the morning. Thankfully, she has had a fully recovery and will join the other members of DIA on M!Countdown.”
The initial conspiracy was that Eunjin was being used as mediaplay by Kim Kwang Soo and MBK Entertainment, but now there’s netizens saying that Eunjin is basically the second Hwayoung from her T-ara times.
Comments stated, “What’s wrong with her? If you’re sick don’t come out. Does she want to show that she’s pissed or something? She’s so immature”, “It’s either there’s trouble among members or she doesn’t like the new members”, “She was standing still the whole time and not dancing while others were. I think the illness thing is just an excuse and there’s trouble among members.”
Comes complete with gifs!
If you look at the V Live broadcast, she does look miserable the entire time…
…though the easiest explanation for that is people do tend to look miserable when they are feeling miserable. I mean, who knows what was going on, but that seems like the most common sense explanation.
