A heartwarming scene was captured on camera by fans, of Kai looking concerned after finding out about Yeri‘s injury by car accident.
EXO, Red Velvet and other artists attended and performed at the Melon Music Awards 2016, held at Gocheok Sky Dome. Red Velvet appeared without member Yeri when they performed “Russian Roulette” live on stage, and Kai noticed immediately.
As the rest of the members stood up and applauded for their fellow label artist, Kai asked about Yeri’s absence. To this, the leader of the group, Suho, explained that she was unable to attend due to her injury. He also explained she had been involved in a car accident and showed Kai how she’d gotten hurt. Kai was seen looking shocked and concerned as he learned Yeri’s accident.
Red Velvet’s Seulgi and Yeri were involved in a car accident back in October. The two artists were heading back to their dormitories when the taxi hit a garbage truck. Although they have received immediate treatment and rehabilitation, Yeri remained absent from many of Red Velvet’s ongoing activities in late 2016.
