Sooyoung’s mother kept fans updated with Sooyoung’s conditions as she left a message on SNSD’s fancafe HwaSuEunHwa on the morning of August 30th, two days after the accident. The following is the translated message:
All of you worried a lot, didn’t you? hehe.. Yesterday and the day before was hectic.. Sooyoung is doing better than expected~ Of course she is feeling a little pain, but she’s okay because she’s taking painkillers.
Since so many people have been enduring the pain with her and have been so worried for her, I realized just how much love my daughter has been receiving. And so I’m starting my day with a full heart.
Sooyoung is still the one reassuring family, members and friends with a bright face, so you don’t have to worry~ There are many others who are really hurt… She’s sorry about being in her room so she said she’s not in pain and that she’s okay..
Like what Sooyoung said, about always being there no matter what.. I will keep my word ~
So.. Please watch over her with a light heart, as well as the other members.. Please cheer them on ~ They tend to become awkward when one person isn’t there…

Update 4: Soojin speaks on Sooyoung’s accident in an interview
Sooyoung’s older sister Choi Soojin, a musical actress, talked about the serious accident in an interview. She said, “She (Sooyoung) bled a lot and I was so shocked at the incident at that moment, that I thought she could even die.”
She further explained, “There is a crack on her coccyx (tailbone) but we were told that there is no specific treatment or casts needed so she just has to rest. Perhaps she cannot attend some upcoming schedules but because she is willing to attend the activities, I thought perhaps she can attend some that doesn’t require much movements and provided that they are not stages that involve excessive movements.”
