Apink’s Namjoo Sustains Ankle Injury During Concert Rehearsal
Apink’s Namjoo will be trying to keep off her feet for a little while due to an injury.
Namjoo recently sustained a minor injury to her right ankle while rehearsing for Apink’s concert. Despite her injury, she performed as normal at the group’s concerts in Korea on December 17 and 18.
On December 21, Apink’s agency Plan A Entertainment told news outlet Ilgan Sports, “In order to take care of the artist, we plan for Namjoo to perform while seated during upcoming Japanese promotions.”
“In order to speed up her recovery we planned to decrease the group’s activities in Japan, but Namjoo was adamant that they keep their promise to fans,” the agency added. “It’s been decided that she will wear an ankle guard on her right ankle and do all her promotions sitting down.”
Fans at Gimpo Airport were surprised and concerned on December 21 when they saw Namjoo being pushed in a wheelchair as the group headed to Japan to promote their new Japanese album “Pink Doll.”
Get well soon, Namjoo!
