Song Joong Ki to Concentrate on Recovery Following Injury
Song Joong Ki is working on recovering from injury.
Song Joong Ki was injured while filming KBS 2TV drama Descendants of the Sun on November 23.
A rep from his agency, Blossom Entertainment, stated to Newsen on November 30, "The results of a thorough examination revealed that the degree of his injuries is more serious than originally expected. However, it′s difficult to say that he′ll require eight weeks of treatment as is widely talked about. He appears to have little injuries in several parts of his body. Depending on the individual, recovery could be shorter or longer. For now, he′s trying to concentrate on recovering."
According to a rep from Descendants of the Sun, Song Joong Ki was injured while filming an action scene. He suffered damage to a ligament in his right knee as well as his arm area. Although he wasn′t hospitalized, he is wearing a cast and receiving outpatient treatment.
This has inevitably affected the drama filming schedule. A rep from Song Joong Ki′s side stated, "He′s currently unable to participate in filming. His return to the set will be based on the rate of recovery. He plans to do everything he can to recover."
Meanwhile, Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Gyo are currently filming Descendants of the Sun, which is set to be broadcast in February. They have been filming in Korea and abroad for pre-production. Lee Eung Bok is directing the drama, while Kim Eun Sook will be writing the script. The drama will be aired simultaneously in Korea and China for the first time.
