Juice=Juice member Karin Miyamoto will be resuming her activities on August 31 following a month-long hiatus.
On July 25, Miyamoto revealed that she had been diagnosed with functional dysphonia, a disorder characterized by the loss of one's voice without any clear physical cause. She has refrained from all activities that would require her to use her voice in any capacity.
On August 28, an announcement was made on Juice=Juice's website revealing that Miyamoto will be resuming her activities.
"With my current state of recovery, and after consulting with my doctors and parents, I've decided to appear and perform at Yokohama Bay Hall on August 31 as part of the "Juice=Juice Live Around 2017 ~Seven Horizon~" tour," Miyamoto said.
Netizens expressed relief after hearing that Miyamoto had recovered. Many believed she would make a recovery, but had no idea how long the recovery process would be.
