Why Exactly Did Wonho Collapse?
While the fans described that Wonho seemed to be in pain and holding his chest when he collapsed on stage, the agency’s explanation makes everything makes sense.
Soon after the reports circulated in social media, Wonho HIGHLINE Entertainment agency released an official statement via Daum Café.
According to the statement, the reason why Wonho had collapsed on stage while performing was due to hyperventilation. That is why the singer seemed to be in a lot of pain while holding his chest.
However, once the incident happened, Wonho had been immediately treated by a medical professional. Therefore, his decision to continue his performance was under medical supervision. That is why the company still considers Wonho’s health as number 1 priority.
“Hello, this is HIGHLINE Entertainment and we are giving you updates on Wonho’s condition.
Today, Wonho showed signs of hyperventilation in the middle of the concert. Therefore, we escorted him off stage with the assistance of the security guards. He was then immediately taken to the on-set medical staff.
Upon receiving treatments from the professionals, Wonho became stable enough. He then wished to continue his performance. That is why after a detailed discussion with the medical staff, Wonho returned to the stage and continued performing.
Still, the medical staff remained alert and ready on the set to keep an eye on Wonho’s condition. Then, the concert ended successfully.
We would like to apologize to the startled fans about this incident. Also, we thank you so much for your abundant love and support for Wonho.
HIGHLINE Entertainment will continue monitoring Wonho’s health and condition closely. And at the same time, we promise to do everything in our power to continue providing him with all supports he needs.”HIGHLINE Entertainment.
Wonho Expressed His Thanks to Former SISTAR Soyou for Coming to the Rescue
Finally, Wonho also expressed his huge gratitude to his friend and colleague, former SISTAR Soyou.
Wonho thanked Soyou for coming as a guest star in his concert along with Seungwoo. And, most importantly, for having his back and coming to the rescue during the incident. She came up on stage, sang a few songs, and calm the fans in the middle of their shock and anxiety.

Wonho collapsed on stage but still came back to perform!? Nah the company should have pulled the plug on the concert and sent that man directly to the hospital. The fans would have understood.— Redkicks🤷🏿♀️ (@redkicks) November 14, 2021
