Following the incident, SM Entertainment released a statement explaining the team's plans. The agency stated that Red Velvet members Yeri, Irene, Kang Seul Gi and Soo Young Park will take part in the upcoming song festival. But they will not perform as a team because Wendy needs time to recover from her injuries.
