The image of S.Coups (SEVENTEEN) sitting in a wheelchair on the way to Japan is touching for fans.
On the evening of September 5th (KST), the SEVENTEEN fan community was deeply moved by the image of the group’s leader, S.Coups, who was sitting in a wheelchair due to a leg injury but still embarked on a journey to Japan to watch his fellow members perform. Earlier on August 17th, their management company, Pledis Ent., had announced that S.Coups’ schedule would be temporarily halted due to the injury that required surgery. As a result, SEVENTEEN would continue their activities in Japan with a 12-member lineup, and Seungkwan would make his return after a period of rest.
Recently, the immensely popular music group released their Japanese album “Always Your” and were preparing for a tour in the Land of the Rising Sun. On September 6th, SEVENTEEN was scheduled to have a concert at the Tokyo Dome. Despite having undergone surgery not long ago, S.Coups was determined to travel to Japan to accompany his fellow members. The image of the male idol, sitting in a wheelchair but still radiating happiness and smiles, deeply touched the fandom, showcasing the profound affection and support “big brother” S.Coups had for his bandmates. S.Coups wasn’t just the leader but also the emotional anchor of SEVENTEEN.
Before deciding to travel to Japan, S.Coups had updated his status on Weverse, an interactive platform for fans, to inform them about his rest period. He expressed that he “missed SEVENTEEN,” and received words of encouragement from fellow member Hoshi, who said, “Come here.” This detail further touched the hearts of fans.
