Super Junior’s label, Label SJ, clarified details in regards to the singer’s participation in group comeback activities.
On Oct 17, the singer conveyed his apologetic heart to fellow members and fans on his Instagram. “Some of you may know about this, but I hurt my left leg in a car accident eleven years ago, and have not been able to use it normally ever since. I wanted to continue doing the activities I enjoyed, so I continued on despite the pain. Nowadays, I feel scared. Maybe it’s because I’m getting older. Last time on ‘Life Bar’, I talked about how I am experiencing severe pain in my ankle more frequently,” he said
“Super Junior’s comeback is on Nov 6. All of our members and fans are happy and energetic because it’s our first comeback in a while. I also felt the same way. However, it no longer appears I can resume normal activities for our comeback,” the singer confessed. “If you can all forgive me, I will attend rehabilitation with a more positive mindset and grateful heart.”
Label SJ made an announcement on the following day in regards to the post. “Kim Heechul made that post out of concern over his chronic pain. He will continue to participate in Super Junior’s comeback activities.”
