On October 16, SISTAR made an exclusive fan signing for a footwear brand Skechers at Yeongdeungpo Times Square in Seoul.
However, when the group members posed for the official photo wall prior to the fan signing, Soyou was seen on the sidelines allegedly having a blank expression and was inattentive.
The controversy had led to the previous speculations that the idol member has been continuing her activities despite her back injury which occurred during their performance at the 2015 Hallyu Dream Festival where Soyou was seen slipping for numerous times as well as fellow member Hyorin.
The injury was also noticeable on their “M! Countdown” filming last October 1 for the promotions of her collaboration track with 10cm’s Jung Yeol. At that time, fans have noticed and worried over Soyou’s condition and have called out her management agency for overworking her. Later, Starship Entertainment then assured the fans that they are aware of her back injury and is managing it through pain management and further revealed that there was no changes made on her schedules.
Starship Entertainment then responded to the issue and further explained that Soyou has continued with her schedules despite her poor health and back injury. “Soyou attended the fan signing however, because of her poor condition, she was captured having a blank expression. We plan to minimize her schedule.”
