SEVENTEEN’s Jeonghan Recovering from Elbow Injury


SEVENTEEN’s vocalist Jeonghan will be wearing a cast during the “BE THE SUN” world tour. That’s because he’s recovering from an injury and surgery for his right elbow.

PLEDIS Entertainment released a statement on June 17th explaining that Jeonghan had been suffering from lateral epicondylitis. Also called tennis elbow, it’s the swelling of the outer tendon caused by repeated and excessive strain.

Despite receiving treatment, the condition had gotten so bad that Jeonghan needed surgery.

He had the operation on June 15th and was released from hospital the next day. He will participate in the “BE THE SUN” tour while wearing a cast and a brace.
