‘Traffic Accident’ Daesung, Nose Fractures, Injuries and Displaced Four Weeks .. Other Passengers Maybe in Critical Condition
Big Bang’s Daesung got into accident and sent to hospital on 11th. According to diagnostic result, Daesung fractured his nose and got small bruises on his face and arms as well. Thus, doctors required him for over 4 weeks of treatments.
YG Entertainment later said, “We first thought it was a car accident, but found out that the car that Daesung was in hit the guard rail itself,” on the same day of an accident to Money Today Star News.
According to YG, the car was driving around Pyung-Taek City, Kyoung-Gi Province, under rainy conditions and hit the guard rail around 4pm after having finished shooting SBS ‘Family Outing.’
Also, according to company, Daesung was sent to the closest emergency room right after accident. After an hour of close examination, he suffered a fractured pleurapophysis and nose. YG said, “Hospital said pleurapophysis will heal naturally if he rests for about four weeks. We are planning to send him to a hospital in Seoul and get treatments.”
Also, manager who drove the car got leg injuries.
YG said that the stylist who was sitting in the back seat got severe injuries and bled a lot, so they are worrying about her health a lot at this moment. The stylist was sent to the nearest hospital, but hospital recommended to send her to a bigger hospital in Seoul, and is currently waiting for surgery.
There’s a big possibility that Daesung will not be attending his new musical ‘Shouting’ press conference on the 12th because of this accident. YG said, “‘Shouting’ press conference will go on as planned, but we don’t think Daesung will be able to attend. We will focus on his rest and put him back on good condition.”
YG also added, “We are sorry to many fans who are worried throughout this incident.”
** NOTE: pleurapophysis is a big word, but you can google it & search more in-depth or take my interpretation of it as a fractured rib.
