Fans were first shocked and worried when it was reported that Golden Child’s Tag had experienced liver failure, was in critical condition and was admitted to a hospital. However, the K-pop idol’s agency, Woollim, immediately assured fans that it wasn’t as serious but he was indeed unwell and had to get checked up. With Golden Child set to go on their first-ever tour in USA, many were worried.

Well, we finally have an update on Tag on May 23. Woollim shared that Golden Child would be promoting with eight members temporarily since Tag would have to go on hiatus to recover. The label shared that Tag was not feeling well on May 18 and had to go to the hospital for a medical checkup. The Golden Child member indeed had a poor liver condition but after testing and ongoing treatment he has remarkably improved with the label asking fans not to be afraid.

Tag to miss Golden Child’s US tour due to liver condition

However, since Tag is still on the road to recovery, Woollim shared that according to expert medical advice Tag would have to prioritize his health and take time off to recover. And so, the K-pop idol will currently not be participating in any of the group activities. This, unfortunately, also includes Golden Child’s first US tour since its debut in 2017. While fans were disheartened, they sent supportive messages to Tag wishing him to rest and get well soon.
