On Jan. 31, EXO's Lay reportedly hurt himself seriously while in the middle of a filmshoot.

According to Chinese and Korea media outlets, Lay (Zhang Yixing) was injured when a motorcycle fell on the EXO member. He was taken to a hospital, and Lay's representatives have stated he is currently resting.

There was initial concern that the accident aggravated old back injuries, but Lay's Chinese workshop reassured fans that it is not a serious injury to his back, reports SBS PopAsia. 

Lay is taking a hiatus while he recovers. While the EXO member is resting, and the film crew is rearranging matters so that he can rest for the time being.

The accident occurred while Lay was in the middle of shooting the web drama, "Old Nine Gates." He plays the role of Er Yue Hong in the series.

Lay is currently pursuing solo activities in China, as many other EXO members continue to focus on solo activities within South Korea and overseas. The group is heading to North America later this month for several tour stops. It was previously revealed that Lay will not be attending the concert series, regardless of the recent injury.

Lay is playing a tomb raider in "Old Nine Gates."
