On August 25th, Jiyeon pulled her right knee ligament during choreography practice and was advised by her doctor and company to rest. However, Jiyeon insisted on continuing with her schedule.
Jiyeon state, “I wanted to be with the members on stage especially because this week is the last broadcast performance of ‘Roly-Poly’”.
Her company has revealed, “She has a great sense of responsibility, so despite the pain from her injury, she took painkiller and did her absolute best for the last ‘Roly-Poly’ performance on ‘Inkigayo’, Afterwards, she even finished up her other pre-arranged schedules. The situation with her right knee however worsened, so she is currently resting at an emergency room awaiting treatment.”
Core Contents Media also commented on T-ara’s activities in the future, saying, “We will make further decisions after we observe the situation with Jiyeon’s right knee.”
Also, not just that, but Jiyeon also attended the whole recording of MBC’s 3rd Idol Star Athletic Championships held at Jamsil Stadium, although she had to be helped from location to location because of her injury.
