Last December, the singer was confirmed with depression and anxiety. Which is why he opted to take a break to focus on his mental health. But recently, he revealed “Kang Daniel return” that he will be resuming his activities.
On January 29, Kang Daniel took to his official fan cafe and posted a handwritten letter addressed to his fans that reads as follows:
My dear Danity, hello, it’s me, Kang Daniel.
The magpie’s Lunar New Year, and our Lunar New Year has passed, and we’re already a month into 2020. Have you been doing well during this long winter?
For me, this winter has been especially cold. I needed to hibernate for a little while to overcome the cold. I’m sorry for leaving without a proper goodnight. I should have at least said goodbye to our Danity, and I’m so sorry that instead, I am apologizing to you so late right now.
That frozen winter of mine seems to have an end, and that end must be the start of spring. The warm stories you have sent me have brought spring to me, and I am trying to pick myself back up and greet the coming spring.
Even though I may be late, I wanted to sincerely thank you for warmly embracing me, even though you must have been so surprised by the sudden news. Thank you for sharing your hearts with me on our fan cafe. Thank you so much for listening to my somewhat rough story, supporting me, waiting for me, and being with me. I can never say it [how thankful I am] enough.
I will get back up now. I will give back to you as much as you have give me, even more. Though not every day can be happy, I believe that if I’m with you, there will be many more happy days. I will make sure there are many more days where we smile this year.
Let’s make 2020 a happy year. Thank you, my Danity.
Kang Daniel is among a string of K-pop stars who have gone on temporary leave in recent months due to health concerns.
Last month, Jeonghan from K-pop group Seventeen also announced he was taking a career break after he was advised to “minimize his schedules” following symptoms of dizziness.
Fortunately, we’ve got a good new from Kang Daniel, so let’s see a stronger Kang Daniel return and hope to see other artists in better case also!
