Mino has been hospitalized with a neck injury, but his injury will not affect the group’s upcoming promotions.
YG Entertainment confirmed that Mino had been recently admitted to hospital after complaining of neck pain. After a short stay at the hospital and physical therapy, Mino has been working on the group’s final preparations while wearing a neck cast.
There was initially some worry within YG Entertainment that Mino’s injury would affect the group’s comeback. The label however released a short statement saying the group’s promotions would not be affected:
“Song Mino complained of having neck pain and recently received physical therapy for it. He will wear a neck brace until he fully recovers. Mino’s injury is not very serious so the comeback schedule will not be affected.”
