Stray Kids’ Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin are recovering from minor injuries after a car accident on Wednesday.

The boy band’s agency JYP Entertainment said Thursday that the three members will cancel their planned schedules.

“While returning home after schedules on Wednesday, Sept. 20, the car with Stray Kids’ Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin on board was involved in a minor collision,” JYP Entertainment said in a statement Thursday.

“Lee Know, Hyunjin and Seungmin were taken to a hospital promptly and undertook in-depth medical checkups. While the members and the staff on board were not severely injured, light muscle pain and bruises were seen, with conservative therapies recommended by the doctors.”

“We apologize for the sudden announcement […] the agency will prioritize the artist’s health and support the members for a speedy recovery,” it added.

Lee Know and Hyunjin’s planned Milan Fashion Week attendance and Seungmin’s planned birthday livestream on Friday are canceled, with only Bangchan, Changbin and Han attending the Global Citizen Festival in New York on Saturday.

Stray Kids announced earlier this month that the boy band will hold a two-day concert at the Gocheok Sky Dome in October.
