Red Velvet fans, we’ve got bad news for you.
Members Seulgi and Yeri were involved in a minor car accident yesterday (Monday, 10th October), and SM Entertainment has released a statement informing fans that the duo is currently taking a break from promotions.
The accident happened when the Red Velvet members were heading back to their dorm in a taxi. The taxi driver hit a garbage truck by accident, which caused the 2 of them to suffer bruising and minor injuries.
The full statement reads:
“While Red Velvet’s Seulgi and Yeri were heading back to the dorm in a taxi after their break around 10 pm, they suffered bruising and minor injuries from a car accident in which the taxi driver hit a garbage truck due to carelessness.
They went to a hospital immediately, received treatment, and are now resting at their dorm. They will rest from activities and will focus on recovering at the moment.”
Red Velvet made their comeback with the song “Russian Roulette” and their 3rd mini album of the same name in early September. Since then, they have concluded their group promotions on music shows but are currently planning to focus on individual schedules.
We hope the girls are okay and will be able to get sufficient rest before continuing their schedules!
