JYP Reveals GOT7’s Jackson Needs Cast for One Week for Ankle Injury
JYP Entertainment shared the current state of Jackson’s injury from Idol Star Athletics Championships.
JYP Entertainment revealed on February 4, “Jackson injured his ankle while participating in a game on MBC’s Idol Star Athletics Championships 2015 on February 2.”
The agency rep stated, “Jackson needs to wear a cast for a week in order to cure his ankle injury and we will make the announcement later if he needs to change his schedules because of this. We’re sorry for making an announcement on sad news. We will do our best for Jackson’s recovery.”
Meanwhile, Idol Star Athletics Championships, which began during Chuseok in 2010, features idols competing against one another in various games of sports, such as track and field, archery, futsal, curling and more, becoming a representative holiday program that can be enjoyed by the whole family. However, due to the idols’ frequent injuries, unilateral schedule announcement and long hours of filming that goes over 20 hours, it has been creating a lot of issues every year.
