On September 21, JYP Entertainment officially announced that a vehicle carrying the three Stray Kids members home had been involved in a minor collision the day before.
According to the agency, none of the members or staff in the vehicle were “seriously injured,” but they “sustained mild muscle pain and bruises,” and “medical professionals have advised that they receive conservative treatment for the time being.”
As a result, Lee Know and Hyunjin will no longer be attending Milan Fashion Week, as they were scheduled to do, and Seungmin has cancelled his birthday YouTube live broadcast.
Additionally, while Stray Kids was originally scheduled to perform as a full group at the 2023 Global Citizen Festival in New York on September 23, only 3RACHA—Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han—will now be performing at the event as a trio, without the other members.
The agency’s full English statement is as follows:
Hello, this is JYPE.
While returning to their dorms after a schedule on September 20th (Wednesday), the vehicle carrying Stray Kids members Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin was involved in a minor collision.
After the minor collision, Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin immediately visited a hospital and received thorough medical examination. None of the members and accompanying staff in the vehicle were seriously injured, but as they have sustained mild muscle pain and bruises, medical professionals have advised that they receive conservative treatment for the time being.
Therefore, we inform you that the schedules below have been cancelled or modified.
Milan Fashion Week (Lee Know, Hyunjin)
Seungmin’s Birthday YouTube Live (Seungmin)
3RACHA of Stray Kids (Bang Chan, Changbin, Han) will perform at the Global Citizen Festival.
We apologize for causing fans to worry with such sudden news.
JYPE will place the artists’ health as the highest priority and will provide everything we can to support their recovery.
Wishing Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin the speediest of recoveries!
