Soprano Jo Sumi was taken to hospital on Tuesday with acute appendicitis and underwent surgery on the same day, her agency said.

The Korean artist arrived in Seoul from Paris late last month to start her tour of major cities in Korea including Gwangju and Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province. The 50-year-old soprano’s last concert of the tour at Sungsan Art Hall in Changwon, South Gyeongsang Province, on Thursday has been cancelled due to her health condition, SMI Entertainment said on Tuesday.

The Changwon concert will now be staged on Nov. 4, it added.
