King & Prince's Iwahashi Genki's Resumption of Activities was Cancelled Due to a Brush-in with the Law at a Harajuku Convenience Store
"A few days ago, we reported that Iwahashi Genki would be resuming some of his entertainment activities, but at this time, he will no longer be able to resume his activities as previously stated. He will continue to concentrate on treatment for his panic disorder."
This is one portion of the statement released by Johnny & Associates on February 28, 2019.
This was a statement regarding Iwahashi Genki (22), a member of the up-and-coming Johnny & Associates group King & Prince, who made their CD debut in May last year. Iwahashi went on hiatus in October last year due to poor health. On February 17 this year, it was announced that he would be resuming activities, however, on February 28, merely eleven days later, his agency reported that his resumption of activities had been cancelled.
