Singer Heo Young-saeng [B2M Entertainment]
SS501 Heo Young-saeng has suffered an injury to his right hand, pushing back the starting date to his solo activities.
According to his agency B2M Entertainment on Thursday, Heo pulled the ligaments on his right hand while practicing the dance moves to his title track from his upcoming solo album earlier this week.
"Heo will be wearing a cast for the next two weeks so we have come to the decision to push back the date of his first solo performance," an official from B2M told 10Asia over the phone.
The idol singer was set to kick off his official solo career on April 28 with the release of his mini-album and performance on cable music channel Mnet's weekly music program "M! CountDown."
The official went onto explain that they have yet to re-schedule Heo's first appearance but said the agency "is aiming for sometime before the end of May."
In June 2009 however, the members of SS501 went separate ways after their contract with DSP Media expired -- Kim Hyun-joong signed with KEYEAST, Park Jung-min with CNR Media and Kim Hyung-joon with S-Plus Entertainment, while Kim Kyu-jong and Heo signed with Lee Hyori's agency B2M Entertainment.
The latter two held their official fan meeting late last year and continued their meet-and-greet into several other countries in Asia including Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore and Japan.
