After the comeback was announced, Starship Entertainment shared details about Shownu with Monbebe, the band’s fan base. According to the label, Shownu was previously diagnosed with retinal detachment in his left eye, and he underwent surgery in July 2020.

“The surgery was successful and ever since then, Shownu has been getting his eyes checked regularly to prevent recurrence as the medical condition is not easy to cure completely,” Starship Entertainment wrote in a statement.
