Fans may have noticed his absence during the interview and awards acceptance, and SM has revealed that it was due to an ankle injury.
The agency stated on the 23rd, "D.O. injured his right ankle during their performance... He was rushed to the hospital immediately afterwards and received treatment. There were no other injuries sustained according to the results. It is slightly sprained. He only needs to receive some physical therapy once he returns to Korea."
We wish D.O. a safe and speedy recovery, and congrats to the group on winning album of the year!
