He injured his waist area and fractured his wrist at a competition while he was a high school student. He also tore ligaments and fractured his right ankle in high school. (weekly.chosun.com, 01 Jan 2018; sports.khan.co.kr, 18 Sep 2016)

Start He took up the sport in his second year of primary school. (weekly.chosun.com, 01 Jan 2018)
Reason His parents wanted him to become a swimmer, but he was unable to pursue the sport after he injured his eardrum while playing with a cotton bud. His house was near an ice rink so he decided to join the skating team at primary school. (weekly.chosun.com, 01 Jan 2018; news.donga.com, 11 Apr 2017)
