Apink’s Son Naeun has been revealed to have suffered an ankle injury.
On January 24, the Apink staff Twitter account posted an announcement regarding the girl group’s upcoming performance that is scheduled for tomorrow.
They stated, “Apink’s Son Naeun will be participating in tomorrow’s (January 25) ‘2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Inje Torch Relay’ event, but she will remain seated during the event due to health reasons (ankle ligament injury). As the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics are coming up and this is Apink’s first time meeting PANDAs after their concert, we ask for your understanding.”
[#에이핑크 STAFF] 내일 (25일) 진행 될 '2018 평창 동계 올림픽 인제상화봉송' 무대에서는 에이핑크 멤버 나은양의 건강상의 이유(발목 인대 부상)로 인해 앉아서 진행 될 예정입니다. 얼마 안 있을 평창 올림픽과 콘서트 이후 PANDA들과 만나는 자리인 만큼, 많은 팬 여러분들의 양해 부탁드립니다.

It looks like Son Naeun didn’t want to miss the opportunity to greet her fans at the upcoming event, so the compromise was to have her sit during the performance so as to not exacerbate her injury.
We hope that it’s nothing serious and that Son Naeun has a speedy and full recovery!
