He also posted a full statement on his Official LINE Blog:
“Thank you for your continued support.
I have a report for you.
I had a discomfort in my throat for a long time, and when I was examined, I was diagnosed with a scarring vocal cord.
Since it is necessary to treat thoroughly once, I have discussed with my doctor and the office to arrange for surgery by June.
I am very sorry that I will take a break from work. When work resumes, of course, I will fully express the character, and I will devote myself to medical treatment for about a month so that I can also sing.
I need to rest after the operation, so I would like to update the blog while consulting with my physical condition.
I will inform you again on my blog and office website when I return.
I am sorry that I had no plans for surgery until just before due to the spread of Corona.
I apologize for reporting at this timing.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our fans and other concerned."
