GOT7's Jackson is officially resuming his activities after sitting on promotions in the past couple of days due to his health condition, JYP Entertainment confirms.

JYP Entertainment also apologized for Jackson's absence and thanked fans for showing their support. The agency also assured fans that they will always put their artist's health before their activities.

He also reportedly collapsed during a fan meeting and vomited on stage before he was taken to the hospital. JYP Entertainment later confirmed that Jackson's health issues had worsened and needed to rest to fully recover.

Recently, members of GOT7 revealed the reason for Jackson's absence, saying that his health issue is caused by stressed and anemia. Koreaboo reported that the members of GOT7 revealed this during a behind-the-scenes segment of the March 24 broadcast of Mnet's "M! Countdown."
