During the stage performance at the Incheon Sky Festival Kpop Concert, one of the members of MAMAMOO, Wheein, sustained an eye injury. Here is what happened and the update from MAMAMOO Wheein’s agency, THE L1VE.
THE L1VE Updates MAMAMOO Wheein Condition After Eye Injury on Stage at Incheon Sky Festival Kpop Concert
On September 24, MAMAMOO was one of the artists that performed at the Incheon Sky Festival KPOP Concert 2022. The group sang four of their hit songs, “Starry Night,” “Hip,” “Dingga,” and “UOAY.” The first song they performed was “Starry Night,” and it made all the audience, including fans, happy to see their appearance together on stage after some time.
However, when it came to the following song, “Hip,” Wheein occasionally touched her right eye. It looked like there was something had gotten into her eyes. She tried to keep professional by continuing to sing. The rest of the members noticed her condition and looked worried. And since she couldn’t restrain the pain, she left the stage. Due to her eye injury, she got medical treatment while the rest of the members completed the performance that night.
After the second song, Moonbyul explained to the audience that an object from the fireworks got into Wheein’s eyes. And, Hwasa added that Wheein’s eye was not in good condition, so the three of them would continue the rest of the performance and perform without choreography.
