The ten-piece K-pop boy group, TREASURE, recently kickstarted their 2024 Reboot Asia Tour, making several stops across the continent. Their most recent halt was in Hong Kong.

During one of the concerts, the stage lift started to come up at an unexpected time. Since the group member, Haruto, was not aware of it, he fell to the other side of the lift. However, the idol soon recovered himself from the fall and continued performing.

This incident naturally left K-pop fans and netizens concerned over the idol's health status. They claimed that the unexpected opening of the lift was the staff members' fault.

To update fans on the idol's health and the incident, YG Entertainment, released a statement which read:

"Based on the artists’ opinions, the performance on that day proceeded smoothly within reasonable limits. Currently, Haruto is receiving treatment for shoulder bruising and resting. Tomorrow after returning home, he will undergo further medical examination at the hospital. YG Entertainment will continue to strive for the safety of our artists." (as translated by Koreaboo)
