Korean actor as known as cast member of variety show Running Man Lee Kwang Soo injured due to a car accident and now is hospitalised.
According to a statement released by his agency King Kong by Starship, Lee Kwang-soo was in his car when it had “been hit by another vehicle violating traffic signals.”
After a visit to the hospital, he was diagnosed with a fracture in his right ankle. He underwent surgery on Monday, February 18.
The full statement from his agency is as below:
Hello. This is King Kong by Starship.
On the afternoon of February 15 (Saturday), Lee Kwang Soo, who was going somewhere in his car as part of his personal schedule, was hit by a car violating traffic signals.
After receiving a detailed examination at a hospital close by, he was diagnosed with a fracture in his right ankle. Lee Kwang Soo is currently taking steps to be hospitalized and is receiving treatment.
As a result, he will not be able to take part in his scheduled activities, and we ask for your understanding. We will be monitoring his progress, and he will focus on receiving treatment for his recovery.
Given that a fractured ankle typically takes at least six weeks to heal, so because of Lee Kwang Soo accident, we’re guessing we won’t be seeing him on Running Man for at least a month.
Wishing Lee Kwang Soo would get well soon!~
