SOOP Entertainment revealed on June 19 that actress Gong Hyo Jin was involved in a car accident.
A rep told TV Report on June 19, "At 1:10 AM today, Gong Hyo Jin was on her way to Seoul in a car after wrapping up filming for her drama when she was involved in a car accident on the highway and is currently receiving treatment. She is in shock right now."
Before the accident, she had been filming for her new SBS drama 'It's Okay, That's Love' in Yongin, Gyeonggi-do. She was in the van with her manager and stylist when the accident occurred. After her van and a truck had bumped into each other, they stopped on the highway when yet another truck collided into the van.
The rep said, "Gong Hyo Jin sustained slight injuries on her forehead and face, but thankfully, the injuries are minor considering the details of the accident. Currently, she and the staff members are being examined. The exact situation will be known only after the results of the investigation, but she will probably be able to start filming again after resting for a few days. The drama's first episode is planned for the end of July, so this won't affect the broadcasting schedule."
[Update] - Word has come from her reps that after looking into her condition and checking on her at the hospital, it has been found that the actress has suffered a fracture on her left arm. She is still undergoing various tests, and receiving treatment.
We wish Gong Hyo Jin and her staff members a quick recovery!
