Inspirits, the comeback you’ve all been waiting for will come a ‘lil later.
This is due to Sunggyu’s rib injury, which was sustained while filming for Channel A’s “Singderella”. The singer will be halting all his activities indefinitely until he recovers.
According to soompi, Sunggyu was injured while playing a game on the show, which requires guests to sing and dance in order to win snacks. The extent of his injury is unknown, but his label has described it as “not a minor injury”.
INFINITE was supposed to make their comeback in May, with the music video for the title track scheduled to be filmed tomorrow (30th March). However, the schedule has been changed due to Sunggyu’s injury.
A source explained, “Due to his rib injury, we believe it will be difficult for Sunggyu to carry out the choreography for the MV with the rest of his members on that day. Therefore, we may have to change the shoot schedule in order to accommodate the change in circumstance.”
Woollim Entertainment has also released an official statement on the issue.
“Sunggyu was injured recently on set and sustained a fracture to his ribs. Although it’s not a minor injury, Sunggyu has been resting and has told us that he feels alright. We have halted activities for Sunggyu so that he can get all the rest he needs.
We don’t see (the injury) as a huge obstacle as of yet; however, we realise we will need to be flexible. We are carefully discussing the matter and so the group’s official comeback is pending at this point.”
Another source also explained that the music video content will probably be changed to accommodate the unexpected circumstance. The INFINITE leader will also likely miss out on the group’s Japanese comeback in April.
Get all the rest you need and get well soon, Sunggyu!
