After CARATs – SEVENTEEN's fans – were presented with the good news of Seungkwan's return from his health-related hiatus, it was shortly followed by sad news after Pledis Entertainment announced that SEVENTEEN's leader S.Coups sustained an injury during a content shoot.

According to Pledis Entertainment's Weverse announcement regarding S.Coups' health status and future activities, the 28-year-old K-Pop idol sustained an injury to his left knee when he landed while playing a ball game for a content shoot.

Following the incident, the K-Pop idol was taken to the hospital for a comprehensive medical examination, which later revealed that he had a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in his left knee.

S.Coups' agency noted that the artist is currently receiving the necessary medical treatment and will undergo surgery as soon as possible. Pledis also promised to give CARATs updates on S.Coups' treatments and rehabilitation schedule.

While S.Coups is highly determined to attend all of his group's prearranged schedules, he won't be able to participate in most of SEVENTEEN's official activities because his recovery and rehabilitation will be prioritized.

After Pledis Entertainment's announcement, S.Coups – whose real name is Choi Seung-cheol – took to Weverse to personally talk to his fans and lessen their worries.

"I was a little surprised at first because I was immersed and had fun filming, but I was treated at the hospital right away, so don't worry too much," he said.

"I'm sad that there are many things planned, but I think the first thing [I need to do] is to recover as soon as possible and show a good performance to CARATs, so I'm going to focus on recovery for the time being and consider treatment and rehabilitation as a top priority," he continued.

While he felt sorry for what happened, he assured his members and fans that he would greet them from time to time while recovering.
