Lee Seung Gi’s future in TV drama You’re Surrounded — at risk due to a severe injury to his eye on set — is to be decided this weekend.
A spokesman for the 27-year-old idol actor says: “Lee Seung Gi’s condition is constantly being monitored and treated. As the hospital medics have advised to assess his progress after three to four days of rest, we will decide if he is fit to resume filming this weekend.”
The screen star suffered an injury on Monday, June 9, when a prop sword accidentally hit his eye during filming of the SBS series. An immediate diagnosis at the hospital concluded that he had sustained corneal damage and intraocular haemorrhaging. His reps have indicated that no surgery is on the books, but that the sensitivity of the eye injury requires firm stability whilst recovering.

Due to the extenuating circumstances network officials postponed the initial air date of the June 11 broadcast of the show, while Lee’s other activities have all been suspended until his eye recovers.
