K-pop boy band EXO’s Tao and GOT7’s Jackson sustained minor ankle injuries during the filming of the MBC variety show “2015 Idol Star Athletics,” media reported Tuesday.

Tao and Jackson got their ankles injured while playing basketball against each other on Monday at Goyang Indoor Arena, Gyeonggi Province.

After receiving emergency treatment at the site, the two were taken to a nearby hospital for a check-up.

Tao is now resting at his dormitory, an official from his label SM Entertainment said.

The Chinese idol assured fans that he is fine.

“I am gathering up strength and working harder thanks to you (fans.) I am okay, don‘t worry,” he wrote on Instagram.

Jackson plans to receive in-depth treatment later in the day. As the injury is minor, he will go ahead with his schedule as normal, said an official from JYP Entertainment.

Starring a slew of idol groups including GOT7, BEAST and EXO, the entertainment show will begin airing on MBC in time for the Lunar New Year holiday.
