Epik High star and hit producer Tablo has fractured his shoulder during a trip to China and now needs emergency treatment.
The 33-year-old “Up” singer had traveled to Kaifeng in the Henan Province to perform on the Yin Ji ‘O’ Show with fellow K-pop idols 2NE1, Brown Eyed Girls and Son Dambi on October 1. After the recording, he took time off — but it didn’t go to plan.
“Last night was awesome, I went to the emergency room in China,” he tweeted today, October 3, with a photo of the interior of a hospital emergency room. He added: “My shoulder fracture hurts. It’s a real hospital. Broke my shoulder, arm, etc,”

After he received a consultation and initial treatment in China, sources confirm that the idol decided to continue with a doctor in his home country.
A rep for Tablo told IdolWow! this morning: “He received emergency treatment for a shoulder fracture in China. It’s not a big injury. It will not be a problem for him to return to Korea. He will do a follow-up in Korea.”
Tablo is now resting at a Seoul hospital.
