Cigna said that they will be focusing on providing practical user-centered healthcare services, that will break away from the existing healthcare services that are more centered on marketing and its providers. To do this, Cigna will be introducing the healthcare platform "TUNE H" around October 2021.
"TUNE H" is said to be a "personal wellness coach" service that helps individuals understand their health status and gradually aid them in achieving their health goals. The launch of "TUNE H" is expected to contribute greatly to the building of a more healthy lifestyle for the younger generation who are more familiar with digital gadgets.
In their partnership with SEVENTEEN, "TUNE H" will include content on information regarding nutrition, sleep, mental health, as well as exercises, in the hopes of motivating users and help them achieve their personal goals.
Cho Ji Eun, who oversees Cigna Korea, said, "Healthcare is increasing in importance in all areas of life, and Cigna continues to make changes and investments in Korea's healthcare environment. We will continue to provide healthcare services that break the mold in new forms and in various ways."

SEVENTEEN to Temporarily Promote as 11 Members
Back on September 1, Pledis Entertainment announced that SEVENTEEN will be promoting as 11 members temporarily, as the group's Chinese members, The8 and Jun, will be returning to China to carry out their promotions and activities in their home country.
According to Pledis Entertainment, SEVENTEEN will only be promoting as 11 members from September until December after careful discussion with the company and members. They explained that the decision came from The8 and Jun not having spent time with their family after being forced to stay apart due to the pandemic.
In addition, traveling between regions and countries demand excessive time and effort due to challenges brought by the pandemic - such as testing for COVID-19 and going under self-quarantine. Hence, The8 and Jun will be focusing on their delayed activities in China for the time being.
Meanwhile, SEVENTEEN is preparing for their new album slated to release in October.
