On 19 October, Source Music revealed that the two members of LE SSERAFIM had been in a car accident earlier that day. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured on board, but Kim Chaewon and Huh Yunjin both suffered "mild muscle pain and bruises," and a doctor advised them to "receive conservative treatment for a while."
As a result, LE SSERAFIM's scheduled appearances on Mnet's M Countdown on 20 October and KBS 2TV's Music Bank on 21 October have been canceled. These would have been their first music show performances. The girl group has also rescheduled their fan signing events for 21 and 22 October.
LE SSERAFIM made their comeback two days ago, on 17 October, with their new mini album ANTIFRAGILE.
