Get well soon! Actor Lee Seung Gi has been forced to suspend all his work activities following a severe eye injury.
The 27-year-old screen star suffered an injury on Monday, June 9, when a prop sword accidentally hit his eye while filming an action scene for SBS’ You’re All Surrounded.
A rep for Lee says that after immediate diagnosis at a hospital, doctors concluded that Lee had sustained corneal damage and intraocular haemorrhaging. On the firm advice of his medical team, the actor has now suspended all his work activities until his eye recovers and SBS is also pushing back the dates of future episodes to be broadcast.
“It’s really unfortunate that filming had to cease due to the accident,” Lee says in a statement. “I will do my best to get the show back on track. I’d liker to apologize to all the viewers of You’re All Surrounded.”
