Lapillus’ Chanty Takes Break From Group Activities Due to Health Reasons

Lapillus member Chanty will take an indefinite hiatus from group activities, the K-pop group’s agency, MLD Entertainment, announced on April 5.

The Filipino-Argentinian artist was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, which prevented her from participating in intense group activities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), chronic fatigue syndrome is a long-term illness that affects multiple body systems. People diagnosed with it experience severe fatigue and sleep problems and won’t be able to do their usual activities.

“Chanty has been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and has seen improvement in her health through continuous treatment and consistent care from her attending doctor,” the statement read.

“However, there is concern that engaging in high-intensity group musical activities may cause the relapse of her symptoms and strain in her health.”

MLD Entertainment clarified that Chanty will remain a member of Lapillus and continue her individual activities.

“We will do our best to support the health and recovery of our artist, so we ask for the utmost understanding of the fans. We humbly ask for warm encouragement and continuous support for the future activities of Lapillus and Chanty,” the agency added.

Chanty was part of Star Magic Batch 2018 and appeared in ABS-CBN’s television series, “Spirits: Reawaken,” “Hiwaga ng Kambat,” and “Starla.” She debuted as a member of Lapillus in June 2022 and signed an exclusive contract with GMA’s Sparkle in November of the same year.
