++ Updated with another tweet + pic from Jaewon-nim, message from Sooyoung’s mother & SM’s statement after SNSD members visited SY.
+Update from SM, tweets from family & friends
Sooyoung has been hospitalised after a car accident that occurred Sunday morning as she was on her way to a volunteer service event providing vests for service dogs for the visually impaired in Chun An. Thankfully the Onesure Insurance company will be covering everything.
Reportedly, the accident was caused due to the negligence of a driver in the opposite lane, whose vehicle crossed the centre line and collided with Sooyoung’s, leaving her with injuries to her lower back area.
Sooyoung is suffering from a sacrovertebral fracture from the car accident, but thankfully, the injury is nothing serious
Sooyoung’s doctor added that with treatment and rest, she will be fully recovered in no time but has to suspend all immediate activities to recuperate. She will thus not be able to attend the upcoming ‘SM TOWN – Tokyo’ and SNSD’s concert in Taiwan.
With SNSD’s anticipated Korean comeback round the corner, this may lead to a possible delay in promotions. However, waiting a little longer for SNSD’s comeback is nothing as Sooyoung’s health much more important.
Also, #prayforsooyoung & #GETWELLSOOYOUNG are currently trending on twitter.
SM Entertainment released a new statement:
“She (Sooyoung) will not be attending the 2 concerts scheduled, but SNSD’s Korean comeback will be not affected. Because their comeback date has not been confirmed, we will ensure that the treatment to her injury is fully completed by then”.
Fortunately SNSD’s comeback date was not yet confirmed allowing some flexibility to accomodate Sooyoung’s injuries.
Also, Sooyoung’s elder sister, Soojin updated her twitter with news about her sister.
Thanks to all who were worried for Sooyoung. There is no change in our cheerful princess Sooyoung and she looks fine. Don’t know what is so fun about being in the ambulance and going to the hospital but she keeps on laughing. Please continue to pray for her.
Stella Kim, an ex-SM trainee & a close friend of SNSD, tweeted
Jaewon, SM entertainment choreographer also tweeted about the “still happy princess”.
The charming girls of Soshi , Choi Sooyoung jjang! I was worried about but after knew that she laughed when she had an accident then…
Completely flawless charming lady Choi Sooyoung-nim (If you must find a flaw, maybe the fact that she has no boyfriend..keke) On the way back after paying visit to her! She says that she’s fine with bright mood, I was worried about her, but turned out that I smiled a lot ke Charming lady Choi Sooyoung Jjang~!
Sooyoung’s mother left a message on SNSD’s fan cafe (HwaSuEunHwa) Tuesday morning.
All of you worried a lot, didn’t you? hehe.. Yesterday and the day before was hectic.. Sooyoung is doing better than expected~ Of course she is feeling a little pain, but she’s okay because she’s taking painkillers.
Since so many people have been enduring the pain with her and have been so worried for her, I realized just how much love my daughter has been receiving. And so I’m starting my day with a full heart.
Sooyoung is still the one reassuring family, members and friends with a bright face, so you don’t have to worry~ There are many others who are really hurt… She’s sorry about being in her room so she said she’s not in pain and that she’s okay..
Like what Sooyoung said, about always being there no matter what.. I will keep my word ~
So.. Please watch over her with a light heart, as well as the other members.. Please cheer them on ~ They tend to become awkward when one person isn’t there…
On Tuesday, SM told Star News reporters:
After Sooyoung was placed in a hospital in Seoul, all the members visited in wishing for a quick recovery
Sooyoung gained a lot of strength after the visit of the SNSD members.
Sooyoung fractured her sacrum vertebrae and she will be focusing on receiving treatment in order to recover quickly. Sooyoung will not be attending the schedules that were already fixed.

Sooyoung! My sister and I are praying for your speedy recovery! ❤
omg hu is that anti-fan of snsd.. grrrr.. ppl like that has got no brains. they never think of other’s safety
@jason and SoshiNes
That’s not good SONE attitude. It’s true this person made a mistake but it’s still a mistake and we all make them. I forgive her/him (if I’m even in the place to) as Sooyoung would, but I do hope they will learn from it.
Sooyoung, this is such a serious accident but despite it you’re laughing… what a miracle that you’re in good spirits and saved from a worse state, I hope I could take some of the pain away from you, God bless, I hope you’ll be well soon! Much love ❤
Get well sooyoung and please take all the time you need to recover. Your health comes first. We SONEs love you and will always be there to support you.
GET WELL SOON!!!!
man… i remember when i read the article about someone trying to abduct taeyeon from the stage during a performance. I felt one of the worst feelings i had ever felt before, and hoped that i would never have to feel that again. But as soon as i saw the headline of this article that feeling came rushing back. I am just glad that it is not too serious. And i know that, with the love and support of the millions of sones all around the world, our sooyoung will make a full recovery.
egads ..a bad day indeed..truly god protected her..get well snsd sooyoung…
Get well soon sooyoung! Take care. 🙂

omg…i was totally shock when i say this article…i hope she’ll be totally fine….always going to pray for her..
Interesting update: Sooyoung’s accident was actually reported in the Straits Times, Singapore’s main daily English paper today(31/8/11). This shows that the Hallyu Wave and the love shown by Sones, casual fans and well-wishers for our 9 ladies is well and truly established in Singapore. Amazing, yes, considering our favourite ladies actually got some bad press whilst they were here for the K-Pop Night last year in October ;).
Please get well soon, Sooyoung :).
It was reported in the Lianhe Zaobao too.
Glad to hear she’s fine and smiling. 😀
I wish I could visit her in the hospital, to see her smile even she had an accident just to ease my worries about her.
but still thank God she is fine now. 🙂
we will wait for you SooYoung. 🙂
it’s kinda sad that soshi still hasn’t responded..
sorry dude/lady just caught up in the emotion just mixed emotion
😀 well it’s good to hear sooyoung laughs
