Kang Daniel will be taking a break from promotional activities for his new single "TOUCHIN'", his agency Konnect Entertainment confirms.
According to their official statement: "Starting from the first half of the year, Kang Daniel visited the hospital after experiencing poor health due to a weak immune system as well as psychological anxiety. After a detailed examination, he was diagnosed with depression and panic disorder. Following this, he has continued to focus on treatment through psychotherapy and medication."
"Though Kang Daniel did his best to stay grounded and not falter in a constantly changing environment despite his state, he recently expressed more severe symptoms of anxiety. Thus, we reached the conclusion that sufficient rest and stability is of the highest priority for the artist’s health and safety."
Daniel also cancelled his scheduled recording with MBC Show Champion today. "We will take all measures possible for Kang Daniel to recover his health, and we will once again keep in mind the responsibility given to an agency to protect its artist."
"Moreover, we ask you to refrain from making speculations and causing misunderstandings regarding Kang Daniel’s health and future activities. We will prepare a way to keep you informed about the process of his recovery."
Kang Daniel was in the Philippines last October for a solo fan meeting.
