SBS “Gayo Daejeon” took place on Dec. 25 and despite how it was supposed to be a happy day for many K-Pop idols and fans, it did not really turn out to be one. The reason behind is the fact that there were many K-Pop idols who had or almost had gotten injured due to the stage and slippery floor.
Kpopmap had compiled some of the incidents and you can take a look for yourself below.
#1 Red Velvet ‘s Wendy
You might have already heard the news about Wendy as it was reported that she had fell over a height of 2m during rehearsal for the show. SM Entertainment had released a statement saying that she is suffering from wrist, hip fracture as well as facial injuries.
Later, SBS had released an apology towards Red Velvet’s fans and the viewers that Red Velvet would not be able to perform due to the incident and promised to pay more attention towards safety in the future.
We hope for a speedy recovery for Wendy!
#2 MAMAMOO ‘s Solar
During the red carpet, Solar had allegedly fell due to the stairs which were not properly marked and were hard to identify. Her scream could be clearly heard during the broadcast of the red carpet session.
