X1’s Agency Releases Update On Kim Yo Han’s Injury
Swing Entertainment has shared an official update on Kim Yo Han’s condition.
The X1 member reportedly sprained his ankle during the pre-recording for “M Countdown” on August 29 but returned to finish the recording after receiving emergency treatment.
On August 30, Swing Entertainment released a statement through X1’s fan café. It reads:
Hello, this is Swing Entertainment. The following is information about X1’s Kim Yo Han’s injury.
On August 29, during rehearsals for the pre-recording of “M Countdown,” Kim Yo Han unfortunately suffered an injury to his ankle. Because the injury took place late at night, he was taken to the emergency room for emergency treatment. On Friday, he received a more detailed examination at the hospital. The results of the exam showed that he had ligament damage and that the injured area required rest for six weeks.
Kim Yo Han has expressed a strong desire to perform on stage, but performing as normal would put strain on the injured area. Taking Kim Yo Han’s health and X1’s promotions into consideration, and after discussions with the members, we have decided that all 11 members will take the stage, but Kim Yo Han will perform while sitting in a chair.
We sincerely thank the fans who have expressed their concern about Kim Yo Han’s injury and we will do our best so that Kim Yo Han can focus on his recovery and get well as soon as possible. Please continue to support Kim Yo Han and X1. Thank you.
