It has belatedly been revealed that actress Lee Yoo Bi sustained an injury while filming for her new drama “The Scholar Who Walks the Night” alongside her co-star Lee Jun Ki, who also suffered a nose fracture.
Lee Yoo Bi is said to have been admitted to a hospital and is currently receiving treatment after injuring her lower back/waist.
On June 11, a representative of the actress’s agency, Sidus HQ, shared, “Lee Yoo Bi was injured yesterday (June 10) during filming after falling with Lee Jun Ki. She is unable to walk right now because her lower waist is hurting, which is why she was admitted to a hospital.”
It is reported that she suffered a herniated lumbar disc and was advised to receive inpatient care by the doctor.
The agency rep further explained, “The hospital has suggested her to stay hospitalized for about 1-2 weeks. However, due to filming schedules, she has decided to focus solely on recovery for 2-3 days with medicine treatment. While she will try to return [to set] as soon as possible, we plan to check on her progress after focusing on treatment.”
A MBC official also released a statement: “The two actors are unable to film due to their injuries. However, this will not cause any problems because there is a lot of footage that has been filmed ahead of time. The first broadcast will air as scheduled.”
Wishing them both a speedy recovery!
