NCT‘s Taeil recently reached out to fans for the first time since his accident.
On August 15, it was reported by SM Entertainment that Taeil got into a car accident while riding his motorcycle home after a schedule. The artist was diagnosed with a fracture in his right thigh and was to have surgery.
Hello, we would like to inform you about NCT Taeil’s health and future schedule. On the morning of August 15, Taeil got into a car accident while riding his motorcycle home after his schedule. He was immediately taken to the hospital for a thorough examination and treatment.
As a result of the examination, he was diagnosed with a fracture in his right thigh and received the opinion of the medical staff that he needed surgery. Currently, he is recovering and receiving the necessary treatment ahead of the surgery.
With this, he will suspend all schedules for the time being to concentrate on treatment and recovery. We ask for fans’ understanding that he will not be able to attend the NCT concert, ‘NCT NATION: To The World’, on August 26.
We sincerely apologize for causing concern to fans with the sudden news. We will put the artist’s health first and focus on Taeil’s recovery so that he can meet fans again soon. Thank you.

Due to the vague statement, many fans were unaware of many of the accident details until Chenle clarified them during a live stream. The NCT member expressed his worry, seemingly revealing that Taeil had once lost consciousness.
I said, ‘What?!’ It was my first time. I was so worried, so I asked the manager what was going on immediately. Is it serious? He said Taeil came back to consciousness. He was injured, though.
He also shared that Taeil was not at fault for the accident, fueling more anger at SM Entertainment, who many believed was at fault for the accident.
It’s that someone ran a red light and hit him, I heard. So be sure to obey the traffic rules because if you don’t obey the traffic rules and have an accident, it will harm others or yourself. We should be responsible to ourselves and also to others, so be careful.
