Choi Si-won, member of K-pop group Super Junior, will not be participating in the promotional activities for its eighth studio album “Play,” his agency Label SJ announced on Tuesday.
The announcement came as Choi and his family are under fire for a recent fatal accident in which a restaurateur died of sepsis on Oct. 6 after being attacked by Choi‘s family pet dog.

Choi’s agency apologized for disappointing many fans who held high expectations for Super Junior‘s comeback. Choi is said to have participated in the recording of the new album and music video shoot.
Choi has sat out both the two-day fan event in Japan that was held on Oct. 24 and rehearsal for JTBC‘s entertainment program “Knowing Brothers.”
Super Junior’s eighth album “Play” will now only showcase the remaining six members. The group released a teaser music video for ”One More Chance“ ahead of its official comeback on Nov. 6.
