Jinwoon of K-pop group 2AM had a car accident last night.
On Sunday night at 11:30 p.m. KST, a vehicle Jinwoon rode in and a 25-ton truck involved in a collision in a tunnel located near the city of Mungyeong, Korea, according to his agency Big Hit Entertainment on Monday.
Jinwoon suffered fracture of his right ankle and a 10cm-long laceration from the accident, set to undergo emergency surgery today at the Samsung medical Center in Seoul, while it is far from certain whether he would fulfill the further activities or not, the agency explained.
The 22-year-old star was on the way home in Seoul after finishing the group’s performance in 2013 Hallyu Dream Concert, a joint K-pop concert held at the Gyeongju Civic Stadium in the city of Gyeongju last night.
He currently receives treatment in the hospital, while one manager and one staff of 2AM who rode together in the car suffered injury and are under the treatment together, according to the agency.
Jinwoon, who recently starred in MBC’s popular variety show “We Got Married,” has been suffering ankle injury since late August and was walking with a slight limp until a recent date.
