Read the full statement below:
Hello, this is YG Entertainment.
This announcement is with regards to WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon’s ankle injury.
On July 10, WINNER member Kang Seung Yoon felt discomfort in his ankle during their ‘HOLIDAY IN THE CITY’ guerrilla event performance. As soon as the event ended, he visited a nearby hospital and underwent a detailed examination.
Today (July 11), the test results confirmed an ankle ligament injury. While there will be no difficulties in his daily life, we received the doctor’s diagnosis that he temporarily needs rest.
As a result, WINNER will be taking a break from this week’s music shows, where performance is necessary.
However, due to the artist’s strong will to keep his promise to fans, we’ve decided to continue with certain schedules that require limited movement.
We plan to discuss future music show appearances depending on the artist’s recovery status and would appreciate if you could understand this aspect with an open mind.
We deeply thank fans for the love they’ve sent for WINNER’s fourth mini album ‘HOLIDAY.’ We will prioritize our artists’ health and safety and do our best for Kang Seung Yoon’s quick recovery.
On July 10, WINNER held a guerrilla performance called “HOLIDAY IN THE CITY” to celebrate the release of their latest mini album “HOLIDAY.” During the group’s performance of “EVERYDAY,” Kang Seung Yoon suffered an ankle injury, but still went on to give flawless live performances of their remaining tracks.
Wishing Kang Seung Yoon a speedy recovery!
