Is Jongho OK? Ateez maknae gets injured mid-concert, fans say 'please be okay!'
If there is one group from the fourth generation of K-pop that has not taken a well-deserved break, it’s Ateez. The ‘Eight makes one team’ group Ateez started 2021 with the release of their seventh mini-album titled ‘Zero: Fever Part 2’ that was released in March, followed by the release of their third studio album titled ‘Into the A to Z’ in the same month. The boys then gave out splendid performances at the Mnet reality show ‘Kingdom: Legendary War’ in April only to follow it up with their comeback with ‘Zero: Fever Part 3’ in September after which the boys dropped ‘Zero: Fever Epilogue’ in December of 2021, three months since their last.
Since the release of that EP, the boys have been busy touring the world, starting with Seoul and following it with various cities in the US. Now as ‘The Fellowship: Beginning of the End’ comes to an end on January 31, Atiny (Ateez fandom) has received some sad news about Jongho’s health situation. It was reported that the maknae and vocalist of Ateez had a minor accident on the second-last day of the Ateez World Tour in Los Angeles, California.

Is Jongho okay?
The second-last day of the Ateez World Tour already started on a rough note as on the same day, it was reported that members Mingi, Yeosang, and Jongho had to cancel their fansign appearances due to persistent health issues. KQ Entertainment, the label that manages Ateez, reported that Mingi suffered from muscle pain after his concert performances and chose to miss the fansign. While the rapper suffered from muscle pain, Ateez’s visual, Yeosang skipped the fansign as he suffered from dehydration after the concerts. Jongho, the maknae of the group, reported that he was facing stomach issues and had to skip the Ateez fansign.
Fans who were worried sick after the health conditions of three out of eight Ateez members got much worse news in the day to follow as Yunho made an announcement mid-concert informing attendees about a minor accident that happened with Jongho during the concert. Yunho told fans that as they were moving around backstage, Jongho slipped and ended up spraining his ankle in the middle of the concert day. From a viral clip, fans were seen torn as they worried for the maknae of the group.
Yunho comforted fans stating that Jongho was okay and was getting treated for the sprain. This coming after the singer’s already degrading health has raised a lot of concern amongst fans who are worried about the well-being of Ateez members.
‘I hope Jongho doesn’t push himself’
Fans of Ateez have now started to worry about the wellbeing of the members as more and more members of the group report health complications. Fans are wishing Jongho a speed recovery while also hoping that the members get a well-deserved rest after the end of this schedule. One fan said, “I hope the sprain isn't that bad. Get well soon, jongho:((" One more fan said, "Jongho my love :( i hope it's not a bad sprain." Another confused fan asked, "So jongho didnt sprain his ankle the giant tmh mirror rolled over it?"
One fan said, "I really hope jongho doesnt push himself too much for the concert :( a sprain is no joke." One fan pointed, "Yeosang completing 8 makes 1 team with both his feet bc jongho is sick reminds me of how yunho did the same during kd bc mingi was on hiatus... ateez are always 8 makes 1 team :,)" Another fan said, "Ohh no our jungho please be okay."
