Although he wasn’t directly involved in the group promotions, the idol was keeping fans updated through Weverse. In particular, he was sharing information on his injury and also interacting with the members. Member Hoshi even shared a photo of some of the members video-calling the idol while they were in Japan.

On August 24, PLEDIS Entertainment shared an update on S.Coups’ injury. In the post, they revealed that the idol underwent surgery on August 21 and as the surgery was a success, he was discharged on August 24.

This is PLEDIS Entertainment.

We would like to update you on the progression of the medical treatment for SEVENTEEN member S.COUPS.

On August 10, S.COUPS sustained a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the left knee during a content shoot. After receiving necessary pre-surgery medical treatment as recommended by the medical staff, he underwent surgery to restore his ACL and anterolateral ligament on Monday, 21st.

The surgery was a success, and S.COUPS was discharged from the hospital on Thursday morning, the 24th, and has been resting since.


It was then revealed that the SEVENTEEN leader will be focusing on his recovery and will be wearing a leg brace, and using crutches and a wheelchair. Yet, the update had fans excited when it was announced that the idol hoped to heal so he could participate in the group’s schedules later in the year, including the planned comeback.

S.COUPS will be focusing solely on recovery and rehabilitation for the foreseeable future per recommendation from the medical team. To expedite his recovery, S.COUPS will be wearing a leg brace and use crutches and a wheelchair. Once the surgical site is healed, he will undergo physical therapy so that he can return in full health to his fans. Once the medical team confirms the stable recovery of the surgical area, S.COUPS plans to participate in the second-half schedule with flexibility and within reasonable limits. We ask for your kind understanding.


Fans are hoping that S.Coups can take time to heal and while they would love the leader to be present during group schedules, many hope he takes the time to heel.
