Physicians advised the Seventeen member avoids moving his shoulder for a period of time, which means he won' be able to join Seventeen for promotions for their 8th mini album 'Your Choice'.

This is PLEDIS Entertainment.
We would like to provide information on 8th mini-album activities of SEVENTEEN member S.COUPS.
On Wednesday, June 30 while engaging in a scheduled event S.COUPS suffered a fall and hit his right shoulder on the ground, and received medical treatment. He sustained additional abrasions and cuts on his right forehead, ear and chin, and was treated for those injuries.
After a medical examination, physicians advised that while his daily activities will fortunately be unaffected, he should minimize moving his shoulder for a period of time. S.COUPS is currently resting and recovering to make sure that an inflammation doesn’t develop in the site of his injury.
As a result, S.COUPS will unfortunately be unable to take part in the 8th mini-album activities scheduled for this week, including SEVENTEEN's appearances on Mnet, KBS and SBS music shows as well as the SEVENTEEN 8th Mini Album “Your Choice” fan sign event.
We will closely monitor S.COUPS’s recovery and determine whether he will be able to take part in other activities without putting undue strain on himself.
We would like to apologize to all fans who have eagerly waited for SEVENTEEN and we ask for your generous understanding. We will place our highest priority on treatment and recovery so that S.COUPS can return to you in full health.
