SS501’s comeback in the Korean music scene is facing a challenge because the group’s leader, Kim Hyun Joong, injured his right leg during the rehearsal for SBS “Inkigayo” last March 23. Although not present during the opening of the show, Kim Hyun Joong still performed “Deja vu” with the rest of the group.
Kim Hyun Joong’s leg did not recover completely and he got a check-up today, March 25. According to results, his leg injury was more serious than they thought but he is currently scheduled for an MRI exam. Based from the available exam results, it is possible that Kim Hyun Joong will have his right leg in a
cast splint. (I read again the article and because of my lack of knowledge on medical terms, I thought “반깁스” means a cast. “깁스” is cast.”)
According to DSP, the group’s label, Kim Hyun Joong still wants to push through with SS501’s schedule despite his leg injury. Also, DSP already foresees that there is going to be a problem with activities now that one of the members is injured.
