SEOUL (Philippine Daily Inquirer/Asia News Network): Stray Kids’ Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin “sustained mild muscle pain and bruises” after they got involved in a minor collision, their label JYP Entertainment confirmed.
In a statement on Thursday (Sept 21), JYP announced that a vehicle carrying Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin got into a “minor collision while returning to their dorms.”
Neither the Stray Kids members nor their staff were “seriously injured but they sustained mild muscle pain and bruises” following the accident.
However, they were advised to “receive conservative treatment for the time being.”
The agency then confirmed that Lee Know and Hyunjin will be absent in the upcoming Milan Fashion Week, while Seungmin’s “birthday YouTube live” has been cancelled.
“While Stray Kids was originally scheduled to perform as a full group at the 2023 Global Citizen Festival in New York on Sept 23, only 3RACHA—Bang Chan, Changbin and Han—will now be performing at the event as a trio, without the other members,” JYP added.
The label also apologised to fans for “causing worry” while assuring that Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin’s health will be addressed with the “highest priority.”
Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin debuted as members of Stray Kids in March 2018. The eight-piece group recently dropped their studio album “5-Star” in June.
Earlier this month, Stray Kids bagged the best K-pop award at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
