Hoshino Gen to go on hiatus again for medical treatment
On June 24th, it was announced that singer/actor Hoshino Gen will be going on hiatus again for treatment.
Hoshino went on hiatus last December after receiving surgery for subarachnoid hemorrhage. He returned to work in late-February and had been working energetically.
According to the announcement, after his periodical medical examination last week, it was found that the area he had surgery "was not in perfect condition". While he is currently carrying out normal daily activities, "follow-up and new measures are required". As such, he will be refraining from his activities for the time being to devote himself to treatment for preventive measure.
Hoshino was scheduled to attend a talk event for his starring movie, 'Hakoiri Musuko no Koi' (currently in theaters) on June 24th, but had to cancel his attendance. According to a person in charge of the film, they "received a message [on that day] that he would be absent due to poor health and will rest for some time."
In addition, Hoshino has canceled his concert on June 29th at Billboard Live TOKYO. He has also postponed his concert on July 19th at Nippon Budokan. More details will be revealed through his official website.
