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.

Red Velvet had been scheduled to perform the lead single from the new album, "Psycho," during Wednesday's show and will not now participate in it.

SM said it will have to adjust the schedule for Red Velvet's promotion activities following Wendy's injury.

SBS released a short statement on its website, apologizing to fans and television viewers for Red Velvet's absence and wishing Wendy a speedy recovery. (Yonhap)
