Everything was progressing smoothly during the show, that is until Onew suddenly crashed down to the stage floor close to the show's conclusion. Onew couldn't bring himself back up on his own, prompting the members to immediately walk toward him and lend him their help. Even with the other members' assistance, Onew was unable to get up; in the end, Onew had to limp off the stage on one foot. Even without Onew, the show had to go on, so the members continued the show despite the absence of their leader.
Onew hobbled back on stage as SHINee began to perform "Everybody," dancing and singing to the track on his injured leg. After the members finished singing "An Encore," Jonghyun told fans, "Onew slightly twisted his ankle. We couldn't perform our teasing stage because of his injury."

Onew, becoming suddenly emotional, apologized to fans with his eyes closed, saying, "I was too excited. I've made a mistake. I'm so very sorry. I will perform the stage I wasn't able to perform today at a later time after preparing even more things for you all."
The rest of the SHINee members added, "Onew kept repeating how sorry he was on stage. I hope the fans will continue cheering him on as always." Onew has also alleviated fans' worries by uploading an Instagram post of himself smiling brightly with a V sign.
Let's hope that Onew will recover fully soon and that he will take it easy!
