On a recent episode of “I Live Alone,” MAMAMOO’s Hwasa reveals how her back injury happened while practicing for her latest comeback, “Maria.”

While practicing the choreography, she felt a sharp pain in her back and suddenly collapsed.

With her comeback happening so soon, she had little time to spare and immediately went to the emergency room.

During an already stressful time, she had to cancel some events such as KCON.

[It happened] a week before the comeback. I was supposed to start going to places that day but I had to cancel everything.

What you may not know is how severe her injury really was at first.

I already got diagnosed with a herniated disk. I couldn’t walk at all on that first day. I couldn’t move my body.

— Hwasa

The following day, she was able to walk a little bit and was only in pain when she coughed…

…or farted.

Leave it to Hwasa to hold nothing back from her fans!
