FAVE Entertainment trainees who are currently competing in “MIXNINE”, were recently involved in a car accident.
After recording for the program on December 31st, their van collided with a car in front. Lee Soo Jin, Kim Bo Won, and Lee Soo Min were in the van with the manager, and they were all wearing seat belts.
Immediately after the accident, they were all transferred to the hospital for treatment. Kim Bo Won and Lee Soo Min were only found to have minor bruises, so they have been resting at home and visiting the hospital for treatment.
However, Lee Soo Jin, received emergency surgery for a stomach injury. She is currently hospitalized and is receiving treatment. Although she is recovering quickly, after discussions with her family, the doctor, and “MIXNINE” staff, it was decided that she will be leaving the program.
Kim Bo Won and Lee Soo Min showed strong desire to continue with the show, and after approval from their families and the doctors, they have decided to continue.
After the accident, FAVE Entertainment stated, “Not only to Lee Soo Jin, Lee Soo Min, and Kim Bo Won, but we are also sincerely apologetic for causing worry to their families and fans who must have been shocked by the sudden news of the accident and to the ‘MIXNINE’ staff and contestants. We will put in our full support for their future treatment and recovery.”
On the most recent episode of “MIXNINE”, the rankings for all the contestants were revealed on January 7th, and Lee Soo Jin ranked 4th.
We hope Lee Soo Jin a speedy recovery!
