“Today [Dec. 9], Johnny, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo were injured when a jungle gym set structure collapsed while filming a commercial,” the agency said.

It added, “Immediately after the injury, they were taken to the hospital for examination and treatment, but a detailed examination is needed. Detailed results will be announced after the thorough examination is over.”

Korean media reported that the NCT 127 members fell from a two-meter jungle gym set in a studio in Namyangju in Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. According to the Namyangju Fire Station, the incident happened at about 5:36 p.m.

Taeil, another member of NCT 127, was also on the same structure. He slipped and fell but only suffered minor injuries.

“Tae-il expressed his intention to take a rest without going to the hospital because he had no discomfort, so he is resting after returning home,” SM Entertainment.

As a result, Jungwoo will not attend the TV music show “Music Core” where he is an emcee on Dec. 10.
