After initially announcing they would be cancelling Red Velvet‘s appearance at the 2019 SBS Gayo Daejeon, SM Entertainment has released a second statement detailing the severity of Wendy‘s injuries.
SM Entertainment revealed Wendy has suffered several serious injuries, and will be completely focused on recovery for the near future.
During the rehearsals for her individual performance on SBS Gayo Daejeon, Wendy fell off the stage. Wendy was immediately transferred to the hospital for a thorough examination and it was revealed she suffered injuries to her face, as well as a breaks in her right pelvis and her right wrist.
Right now, Wendy is waiting for additional examinations after receiving preliminary emergency treatment at the hospital. We plan to focus solely on treatment, as the artist’s health is our top priority. We will let fans know about Red Velvet’s future schedules as soon as we organize them.

Reveluv are currently furious with SBS, both at their lack of apology towards Red Velvet, Wendy, and SM Entertainment and with their unsafe conditions at their year-end festival. They also are furious that SBS is still airing the performances Red Velvet did pre-record prior to her injury, and not respecting SM Entertainment’s opinions. And it’s not just Reveluv who are angry either.
MooMoo’s are unhappy with SBS after MAMAMOO‘s Solar slipped while exiting the red carpet interview.
MAMAMOO’s Solar fell down from the stairs with a loud shout. I hope she’s okay ☺️❤️

And both Chungha and TWICE reportedly did not want to perform on the specific stage due to concerns over the structural integrity of it.
apparently chungha and twice didn’t want to go to that stage bc it was so shaky and you still let the artists go and did nothing about it @SBSGayo now you’re airing rv’s prerecorded stage just because of the rating and money? #SBS_사과해 #가요대전_사과해#ReleaseApologySBSGayo
