Back in January, Jeon So Min suffered a foot fracture, which she personally explained in a previous episode of Running Man. Wearing a foot brace, the actress shared that she somehow hurt her foot going down the stairs. While in the beginning, she assumed it was an ankle sprain, it was after an X-ray was taken that she was diagnosed with a foot fracture.

She returned to the show on February 27 but was in a foot brace and crutches. On January 21, her agency King Kong by Starship announced that she had official undergone foot surgery and was “currently recovering.”
