It was reported that the two idols GOT7’s Jackson and EXO’s Tao sustained minor ankle injuries while recently filming for MBC’s next ‘Idol Star Athletics Championship’.
The two idols were part of the basketball tournament while filming the ‘2015 Idol Star Athletics Championship’ at Goyang Gymnasium, Gyeonggido on the 2nd. Jackson and Tao are said to have sprint during the game, and caused so much pain in their ankle as a result. They were rushed to an emergency treatment in the hospital to see if there are any further injuries.
Jackson‘s insider told TV Report, “Fans are expressing their worries at Jackson’s ankle injury. [Jackson] received emergency treatment yesterday, and plans to receive in-depth treatment today.
