Nearly Injures Himself: SEVENTEEN’s The8 Narrowly Avoids Serious Harm in Stage Mishap


Netizens express concern following an incident with SEVENTEEN’s The8 and stage effects during the group’s recent performance.


During March 30th and 31st, SEVENTEEN held performances in Incheon as part of their Follow Again tour. True to form, every member captivated the stage, with The8 particularly standing out as fans enthusiastically shared videos of his performances from both shows.

However, during the performance team’s rendition of the “Highlight” stage, observant netizens became concerned when they noticed a particular moment where the subunit members gathered at the center of the stage.

During one of The8’s jumps in “Highlight,” the pyrotechnics were activated. After the flames subsided, observers noticed The8 wiping his eye, suggesting he may have been grazed by a spark or debris from the stage.

The fans who posted the video were surprised by what they had seen.

At that moment, my heart was racing… While they were dancing near the fireworks, they suddenly exploded. I believe some of it splashed near his eyes. I was incredibly startled.

After clips and photos were shared, netizens voiced their worries, urging Pledis Entertainment to prioritize the safety of their artists during performances. Considering the rehearsals, many questioned how the company was unaware that The8 would be in close proximity to intense pyrotechnics.

Although pyrotechnics and stage effects can enhance visual appeal, they also pose significant risks. While The8 appeared to escape serious injury, the situation could have been far more dire.
