His company, Pledis Entertainment has given a detailed statement regarding the incident. According to Pledis, “During a recent practice session, Seungkwan suffered an ankle injury.”. Seungkwan was immediately brought to the hospital and looked into. It seems that he had “…ruptured [his] ligament in the left ankle…”.
Per the medical staff’s request, Seungkwan was to undergo surgery and he had successfully done so last Saturday. For the time being, Seungkwan plans to focus on his health.
