PUMA Korea Apologized for Causing NCT 127 Members Johnny, Jaehyun, Jungwoo Injured
SM Entertainment announced yesterday that NCT 127 ‘Triple J’ members Johnny, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo were injured in a fall accident while filming a commercial. Apparently, the commercial that got the three members injured was of PUMA Korea.
Earlier this year, PUMA Korea selected NCT 127 members as their official ambassadors for its Asia-Pacific (APAC) region. Since then, the idols have participated in various advertisements for PUMA Korea’s products, starting from the Slipstream campaign.
It is highly unexpected that a prominent brand like PUMA Korea would make such a mistake, causing three NCT 127 members and its official brand ambassadors to get injured. That is why the company immensely apologized for what happened to the three idols.
On December 10, Korean media reported that PUMA Korea had issued an official apology for causing the accident that injured NCT 127 members Johnny, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo. The prominent brand claimed responsibility and apologized to SM Entertainment and fans. And they would make sure to help NCT 127 members Johnny, Jaehyun, and Jungwoo recover.

Photo of Jungle Gym Set Causing Johnny, Jaehyun, & Jungwoo Injured LEAKED: Too Frail and Flimsy for Adults
Finally, a leaked photo of PUMA Korea commercial filming revealed a set that was too flimsy for 4 adults. The jungle gym set appeared to be made of thin materials and without ground bolting like a regular gym structure, making it too dangerous to stand.
This photo came from a staff onsite and appeared before the accident happened.
