aespa’s Winter undergoes “preventive” surgery for a collapsed lung

aespa singer Winter recently underwent what is being described as a “preventive” surgery for a collapsed lung.

In a statement today (April 12), the Winter’s label SM Entertainment confirmed reports that the aespa singer recently underwent surgery for a pneumothorax, which is also commonly known as collapsed lung.

Speaking to South Korean news outlet Newsen, the K-pop agency said that because the condition is “prone to recurrence”, the surgery was “carried out as a preventive measure in accordance with her doctor’s opinion, and the decision was made after plenty of discussion”, per Soompi.

SM Entertainment added said that Winter is “currently recovering”, adding that the aespa singer’s recovery is their “top priority moving forward” when touching on how the surgery would affect the group’s scheduled activities.

aespa are expected to drop new music in the second quarter of 2024, according to a preview of upcoming music release SM Entertainment released in February. It is currently unclear how Winter’s surgery will affect these plans.

The K-pop group have also announced their upcoming 2024 ‘SYNK: Parallel Line’ world tour, featuring concerts in Asia, Australia and more. It will kick-off in late-June, and currently features 19 concerts across 13 different cities in Asia and Australia from June to September 2024.

Additionally, aespa will also be bringing their 2023 ‘SYNK: Hyper Line’ world tour to cinemas later this month, as part of their new concert film, aespa: World Tour in Cinemas.
