Chanwoo was injured during the filming of iKON’s music video. He injured his ankle and his tendons got stretched. Chanwoo kept insisting that he could continue filming the music video but he was prevented in doing so as his health is more important. According to doctors, it is not a serious injury so the Yokohama Arena Dome tour that is coming up will not be affected by his injury. As long as he does not do heavy dancing, there is no problem with his health.
