Kim Jae Won is Rapidly Recovering
Kim Jae Won is recovering from his shoulder injury quicker than expected.
After dislocating his shoulder, Kim suffered from fractures and ligament damage, and had to drop out of filming MBC’s Me Too, Flower! in early October.
A representative from Kim’s agency said, “Thanks to fans’ concern and affection, Kim’s shoulder has gotten a lot better. At present, he is able to lift his right arm up to the shoulder level. He continued to receive rehabilitation at a famous hospital in Gangseo-gu where figure skater Kim Yuna received treatment. He is likely to get back to normal by early next year.”
The rep said that Kim’s fans have been sending him various medical items from nutritious supplements to medical devices.
“There is a cute neck cast, which Kim Jae Won often wears. There are also all sorts of vitamin supplements from Vitamin A to Z. Kim is moved so much by fans’ affection that he often said he would have fan meetings first after he recovers. He is well-known for caring about fans,” the rep said.
The rep added, “We still feel sorry toward the production crew of Me Too, Flower! for Kim’s withdrawal from the drama due to the accident. We’ll go see them after he gets back his health.”
