On September 21, 2023, JYP Entertainment announced that three members of the K-pop group Stray Kids had been involved in a minor car accident the day before.
Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin were returning to their dorms after a schedule when their vehicle was involved in a collision. All three members were immediately taken to the hospital for examination.
According to JYP Entertainment, none of the members were seriously injured, but they sustained mild muscle pain and bruises. Medical professionals have advised that they receive conservative treatment for the time being.
As a result of the accident, Lee Know and Hyunjin will no longer be attending Milan Fashion Week, as they were scheduled to do. Seungmin has also canceled his birthday YouTube live broadcast.
Additionally, while Stray Kids was originally scheduled to perform as a full group at the 2023 Global Citizen Festival in New York on September 23, only 3RACHA—Bang Chan, Changbin, and Han—will now be performing at the event as a trio, without the other members.
JYP Entertainment has apologized to fans for any inconvenience caused by the cancellations and modifications. The agency has also stated that it is putting the health and safety of its artists first and will continue to monitor the condition of Lee Know, Hyunjin, and Seungmin.
