Running Man cast member Jeon So Min made her fans worried during her recent appearance on the variety show.
Jeon So Min has been busy these days as she works on different projects at the same time. While appearing on Running Man, she is also honing her acting skills on Channel A's drama, Show Window: The Queen's House.
The actress, however, needs to sit out herself from her upcoming schedule due to the recent fracture she sustained.
Jeon So Min Explains to Running Man Members How She Suffered From Injury
Running Man recently dropped its January 23 special episode, Year of the Tiger, Born in 1986. Something was different during the opening segment as Jeon So Min was seen walking with crutches.
While it extremely made Running Man fans worried, the actress explained how she sustained the injury soon after facing the camera. According to her, she repeatedly slipped and fell on her ankles recently that she fractured her foot.
"You know how some women often slip and fall on their ankles when they're going down things like stairs? It happens to me a lot. My foot started swelling up, so I went to get an X-ray, and they said that a bone in my foot had fractured," she said.
Running Man cast member Kim Jong Kook agreed to her statement and said men also suffer from the same injury.
After filming the episode on January 17, Jeon So Min underwent surgery to fix her fractured foot. As she needs more time to recover, she will reportedly miss the January 24 and 25 filming.
Running Man Members Faced COVID-19 Scare
Jeon So Min is not the only Running Man member to face a health scare.
Last week, the entire cast of the variety show underwent mass testing for COVID-19 following super Junior Eunhyuk's positive result. The K-pop idol made an appearance on the show on January 17.
SBS confirmed that all the show's cast members and staff would undergo PCR tests on Friday. Later that day, Yoo Jae Seok's agency, Antenna Music, revealed that the Nation's MC tested negative for the virus.
Ji Suk Jin and HaHa's representatives also shared the same statements. Jeon So Min's King Kong by Starship, Kim Jong Kook's Turbo JK Company, and Yang Se Chan's SM C&C also said that the members tested negative.
However, Creative Group ING said that Song Ji Hyo tested negative but would need to self-quarantine due to her vaccination status. It explained that the actress is currently unvaccinated due to a drug allergy.
"When Song Ji Hyo was a child, she was diagnosed with a drug allergy. In 2011, she received a Ringer's injection to recover her stamina during her busy schedule, but she had a bad reaction in which blotches rose up all over her body and she became short of breath," it went on.
With that said, fans can expect that they won't see two members of the shot in the meantime.
