Taeyong, one of NCT's artists, will not be seen in an upcoming live music event called 'Beyond Live — NCT: Resonance 'Global Wave'', confirmed his agency on Thursday, December 24. The live event is to be streamed on Sunday, December 27 at 3 pm KST and the Vlive site where the tickets are being sold announced, "we notify that TAEYONG will be unavoidably absent from the performance due to the injury. We ask for your understanding and please check the changed multi-cam plans for each artist."

The press statement from the agency also confirmed "Hello. This is SM Entertainment. Due to a relapse in member Taeyong’s herniated disk in his lower back, he will be absent from all the upcoming schedules, including 'Beyond LIVE — NCT: RESONANCE ‘Global Wave’'. We ask for the fans’ understanding and we will prioritize Taeyong’s treatment for recovery. Thank you.”

Since hearing the news, fans of the artiste have taken to social media to address how heartbreaking the news of his injury really is. One fan wrote, "This is so heartbreaking I can't imagine NCT without him. I am upset to think he must be so upset knowing that he can't perform to the most anticipated concert this Sunday. He must be felt so disappointed for himself It's okay bubu. I still watch NCT concert. Rest well please!" Another fan also said the same and wrote, "Very unfortunate that it was right before the much-anticipated stage, but health is and should always be the priority. Get well soon Taeyong. Come back stronger than ever. See you healthy next year."



 



 

Another fan wrote, "I don’t get mad easily, but this genuinely pisses me off. Taeyong has been in constant pain every day since his debut. Wearing neck braces, having horrible waist and back pain at his age shouldn’t be normal. SM hasn’t given him a single break since 2016 and now he’s injured again." Another fan wrote, "Taeyong & tyongfs, take ur time! health comes first. We still here, always with Taeyong. Send hug #GetWellSoonTaeyong #TAEYONG #태용버블 #툥블답장."



 



 

Referring to anyone who was against Taeyong taking a break, one fan wrote, "if I see anyone trying to disrespect him I will fight you! He has been in constant pain and this year alone has been such a busy year for him with NO REST at all! Imagine the pain he had to carry... please rest well now tyong! Don’t be sad we love u still!" Another fan wrote, "This pisses me off because taeyong has been nearing a breaking point for a while now and his packed schedule only pushed him further and i hate that it had to get to this point, he deserves so much better get well soon bubu:(we love you #GetWellSoonTaeyong #LeaderTaeyongWeLoveYou."



 



 

NCT: RESONANCE 'Global Wave' advertised that it will reunite all 23 NCT members for a one-of-a-kind virtual show hosted by Vlive however, Taeyong will not be a part of this. The tickets for this event is sold at $39.68 a pop.
