Apparently, the ex Wanna One member was rushed to the hospital due to high fever and body aches. Reports indicated that the singer's health began to worsen after his fans signing event, titled "MIN:D" on Sunday.
Just last week, his agency Swing Entertainment revealed that Jaehwan has been receiving IV treatment because of high fever. However, the singer still decided to complete his recording with SBS MTV program, The Show. After his recording, he went back to the hospital and continue with his medication.

"He went to the hospital as his high fever and body ache symptoms did not improve. He will focus on treatment and rest for the time being," Swing Entertainment was quoted as saying.
Meanwhile, Jaehwan's fans have expressed concern about the singer's health. Many shared their thoughts on social media and asked the singer to make his health a priority.
"Jaehwan oppa, get some rest first. Don't mind us, take care of yourself first," one fan wrote.
Jaehwan is among the 11 members of former K-pop group Wanna One. He is the main vocalist of the group. The group disbanded in December 2018 after Swing Entertainment did not renew the contract of the members.
