Being an idol means having extremely busy schedules, and that usually results in few sleeping hours and lack of rest. Here are instances during which idols collapsed on stage due to fatigue and shock.
1. f(x) – Krystal
Who could forget the scary incident in 2010 where Krystal fainted on stage during f(x)’s “Mr. Boogie” performance. Fatigue and sleeping only a couple of hours a day became too much for her to handle.
2. f(x) – Krystal
Krystal also fainted on Kim Yuna’s Kiss & Cry. After her performance, she collapsed to the ice with her head drooping. She struggled to hold herself up but was losing consciousness. The audience and fans were shocked and worried about her health condition.

He was rushed to emergency and regained consciousness later. All schedules were canceled and he was prescribed “absolute rest.”
4. Girl’s Day – Hyeri
In this Girl’s Day performance of “Something”, something didn’t look right with Hyeri.
Hyeri eventually collapsed on stage right after the performance.
When she couldn’t stand up alone, the Girl’s Day manager carried off the stage.
She was immediately rushed to the hospital for treatment and later diagnosed with a cold and fatigue.

In 2009 after SHINee’s performance on KBS’s Music Bank, the group proceeded to leave the stage when suddenly the support structure for the lighting began to collapse. One of the light fixtures smashed to the floor, nearly hitting Onew, and Onew lost consciousness from shock and terror. While Super Junior members rushed to prevent the structure from collapsing on top of Onew, SHINee’s manager rushed to pick Onew up and carry him to safety.
