SM Entertainment said Wendy was diagnosed with broken pelvis and right wrist after falling from the stage at Gocheok Sky Dome in Seoul, while preparing for the K-pop show to be hosted and aired by broadcaster SBS later Wednesday.
SM said Wendy, who also suffered a facial injury, received emergency treatment and will undergo further tests at a nearby hospital.
Red Velvet released a 16-track album titled "The ReVe Festival: Finale" on Monday. According to SM, it immediately topped the iTunes album charts in 42 countries.
