SBS Drama Decides to Be Cautious Due to Numerous Injuries

2019/03/12 Source

The SBS drama department is struggling. Actors and directors are in physical pain.

The director of the Wednesday/Thursday drama "Big Issue", Lee Dong-hun, had to resign due to health matters. He's been suffering from pneumonia, so he hasn't been able to command exercise. For the time being, he'll be doing desk work while focusing on recovering. He'll be coming back once he recovers, but until then director Park Soo-jin-II from the B Team will take his place.

Lee Dong-hun seemed fine in front of cameras at the premiere of "Big Issue" on the 6th of March. However, he wasn't in good health and decided to do his part until the premiere. He then handed over his position to his subordinate.

Go Ara hurt her ankle while running in a scene of "Haechi". She was taken to Seoul right away and had her ankle checked which was diagnosed as a ligament tear. Her leg is in a cast and she is in the hospital. Not many of her scenes have been filmed so the production is on edge. They will decide if she needs more rest or if she'll go back to work on the 14th.

Kim Nam-gil fractured his wrist while filming the Friday / Saturday drama "The Fiery Priest". After treatment, he continued to film the drama, but it turned out he had fractured his ribs, too. He'd been receiving treatment since the beginning of the month and canceled filming for two days. His agency claimed that his high levels of vascular inflammation required a thorough examination.

Because of the examination results, SBS postponed filming so that Kim Nam-gil can recover, but because the actor wants to avoid pre-emption, he returned to work soon. He'll be going back and forth the hospital while working.

A source said, "The three people are hurt for different reasons, but we will take caution".
