K-pop star Kyuhyun has been injured while attempting to restrain an “intruder” carrying a knife inside a theatre, his record label has said.
The musical actor and member of boy band Super Junior was at the LG Arts Center in Seoul when the incident happened on Sunday.
The 35-year-old’s record label said he sustained a “minor abrasion on his finger” and was “fully capable of continuing” his normal activities.
The South Korean performer was backstage with other actors in the Ben-Hur musical when the incident is said to have happened.
Local media reports said a woman, who was not known to any of the actors, had been arrested.
In a statement on X, formerly known as Twitter, Antenna Music said the altercation took place during Kyuhyun’s visit to “celebrate the final performance of the musical”.
“While he was in the dressing room, Kyuhyun encountered an outsider who caused distress to other actors,” the label added.
“In the course of restraining the intruder, he had a minor abrasion on his finger.
“He was immediately treated on the spot and is currently in good health, fully capable of continuing his regular activities.
“We express our gratitude to all the devoted fans for their genuine concern.
“Rest assured, we remain committed to supporting the artist.”
