Junggigo’s agency confirms that the singer has suffered an ankle injury.
On October 23, Starship X announced, “Junggigo injured his ankle in a soccer competition with his friends. He has received basic treatment from the hospital. After the weekend, he will stop by the hospital once again for more in-depth tests.”
Before receiving treatment, Junggigo shared a screenshot of a conversation with Go Kyung Pyo on his Instagram on October 22. In the caption, he wrote “Just by looking at the photo of my ankle’s swelling, this third-generation health care tycoon identified the dislocation and ligament injury, as well as gave me other diagnoses.”
In the text conversation, he tells the actor, “They’re all closed now. I should get an acupuncture or herbal treatment tomorrow. But I’m applying an ice pack and constantly spraying on it, and it seems better than I thought.”
Go Kyung Pyo thoughtfully tells his friend, “Let the swelling subside and the stretched ligaments slowly recover. You should be more careful with the fracture. You shouldn’t irritate it.”
The singer responds, “You pretty much gave me a diagnosis. Do you accept health insurance?”
Meanwhile, Junggigo is currently active in various music promotions, such as singing for the soundtrack of the KBS2 drama “Sweet Stranger and Me” which premieres on October 24.
