STAYC, a girl group, will not be performing on the Inkigayo stage today (July 31). Isa, one of the members, sustained an ankle injury, which prevented her from performing under these conditions. The remaining five members will continue with their signature event and inclusion for the ISAC (Idol Star Athletics Championships). Isa, a 20-year-old singer known by her real name Lee Chae-young, made her debut with the girl group in 2020. She appreciates being the lead singer of the Stereotype group. SWITH, the group’s fans, were surprised by the news and sympathized with the singer. They expressed their concerns on social media and wished the icon a speedy recovery.
Isa from STAYC will not participate in any future events, according to the agency.
Isa, 20, will be absent from the group’s next promotional events. Think of an Inkigayo performance, an autograph session and ISAC 2022. SWITH’ers who are waiting for complete group performances and activities will have to make do with OT5 programming for the time being. HIGH UP Entertainment warned followers of Isa’s ankle injury on July 31. The 20-year-old was practicing for a performance when she injured her right ankle.
“Hello, this is HIGH-UP Entertainment.” We are writing to inform you about STAYC member Isa’s injuries and to keep you informed of the group’s activities. Isa injured her right ankle today while getting ready for her scheduled activities and is currently undergoing treatment.”
The note also stated that the group will not be present at the SBS Inkigayo performance. Typically, ensembles don’t bring injured members to the stage and instead play without them. However, the agency representing the women’s group decided to cancel the stage performance. Fans can take solace in the fact that the trio will continue with their book signing and ISAC 2022 shooting. However, these events will not relate to Isa.
“With the exception of Isa, all STAYC members are still scheduled to attend today’s autograph session and tomorrow’s scheduled recording for MBC’s ‘Idol Star Athletics Championships’.”
She hurt her ankle so she won’t be at Ingikayo today 🥺 hope she rests and feels better soon!
