It’s been revealed that Block B’s maknae P.O has been hospitalized for shock earlier today. Recently, Block B has been under scrutiny for its controversial interview in Thailand. Even after several apologies and Block B’s leader Zico’s gesture, the criticisms toward the group still show no signs of stopping. According to Brand New Stardom Entertainment, P.O had been in panic mode since last week and went under shock when several netizens began a petition filing for Block B’s suicide.
A representative of Brand New Stardom Entertainment carefully stated, “It’s true that P.O is currently hospitalized. He still a young kid, who just recently graduated from high school. P.O has a very soft heart, so he's been suffering from great distress while reflecting on his mistakes. He went into shock following the ever-growing attacks regarding the issue. However, we're still waiting to hear the exact diagnosis to understand the state of P.O's health.” He added, “They don’t deny their faults and are accepting all the criticisms. They can’t do anything else other than apologize for their wrongdoings. Currently, we’re very concerned about the members’ health and their families’ welfare.”
