Despite having a partially destroyed car accident, JKS is still shooting “Love Rain”
English translation: tenshi_akuma
Actor Jang Keun Suk is the victim of a half destroyed car accident, but he was soon back to the set of KBS2 “Love Rain”.
According to his agency, Tree J Company, JKS had a car accident near Yeoju on the way to Seoul after filming “Love Rain” at Mangsang Beach in Kangwon-do. The accident took place at around 5am. The car was partially destroyed hitting a guardrail settled on the road where below is cliffs, but, fortunately, it really was a close call with serious physical injury.
In the half collapsed car, there were four people. JKS was sitting in the front seat. His manager (MJ) drives the car. The executive of Tree-J company and the other manager were in the backseat. JKS tipped his chair back and was sleeping with fastening his seat-belt at that time. JKS didn’t get traumatic injury, but he suffered from pain of a bruise.
The agency stated, ”God helping them! I can’t thank God enough to avert a catastrophic accident. And it was fortunate that the car wasn’t a van. It was JKS’ own car. If it had been a van, it would have fallen down the cliff over the guardrail. ”, sighing with the relief of their return.
Despite such a big accident, he headed for the shooting set of “Love Rain” after a short 2-hour sleeping in Seoul. The agency official said, “He didn’t go to hospital not to cause trouble to the crew. We asked him to go even if he felt he was OK. We know the injury isn’t get not only physically but also mentally. But he chose shooting.”
This accident was expected human disaster. JKS has had murderous schedule nearly for a week. For example, he finishes shooting at 5am and soon starts again at 7am. Even for this two-hour rest, he had to spend this for a beauty salon, so that he didn’t take a real rest at all. Such a tight schedule fatigued his managers, too.
The agency said, “Now he’s on the set. After finishing the shooting, he can go to hospital. But he won’t go during the opening hours.” and sighed sadly.
Another case happened last July was that Yoo Seung Ho who appeared on SBS TV “Warrior Baekdongsu” also had a car accident on the way to shooting. After the accident, he decided to go to the set, but he was sent to an emergency room for treatment by the crew.

Hallyu star Jang Geun Suk has reportedly been involved in a car accident in Gyeonggi-do Yeoju. The accident took place while the actor and his manager were on their way to Seoul after filming ‘Love Rain‘ at Mangsang Beach in Kangwon-do.
The car his manager was driving had hit a guard rail and the cause of the accident is said to have been due to his manager dozing off at the wheel. Fortunately, the actor was not seriously injured but has sustained bruises and is complaining of body aches.
A representative of his agency, Tree J Company, stated, “Jang Geun Suk was transferred to a hospital in Yeoju. However, he did not suffer from any external injuries and because he had another schedule for that morning, Jang Geun Suk has returned to the filming location.”
The actor is planning on receiving a thorough examination after concluding his filming for ‘Love Rain’.

Sorry for posting late. There’re many sources which described the news in a different way. I believe he went to hospital for a first-aid treatment after the accident. But it must be true he didn’t have enough time for check-up at that time… What a pity, Sukkie and other Tree-J staff.
We can blame for Korean style of shooting dramas easily, but it doesn’t bear just complaining of it. We (not only Korean who engage in entertainment industry but also other Korean, of course, their fans) should take the first step for thinking this crucial problems very seriously.
Hiring a regular driver doesn’t solve the problem itself. There are a lot of people who aren’t sincere to their boss. If the driver isn’t sincere enough to Sukkie, there might occur another problem. Sukkie likes driving. He sometimes wants to drive by himself. So not hiring a regular driver might be suitable for his style. I don’t want to make me misunderstood, but it doesn’t mean the tired manager can drive. I just say it includes very complicated and sensitive issues… not only happened our adorable Prince. it will also happen everywhere… 🙁
What I can do now is keep supporting his “Love Rain” more eagerly.
Thank Mighty Lord that Sukkie and his managers are not serious injured.
The words “ what if……cliffs….” chill me through my heart. These words keep playing in mind since sis Sarah stated them in the ECI. JKS’ life is so very important to many people. He is so loved and precious to his parent and EELs. His managers’ lives are equally important to their family. What’s a closed call??
With so many accidents happened already, related to sleep deprivation……I pray Korean Filming industry can produce and complete their dramas before airing so there will be not more pressure for the actors/actresses and the production team too much. The ways that they do filming in Korea are so crazy, predictable waiting for some very bad incidents to happen. The other countries usually finished their dramas first before airing…Why can Korean do the same thing? Aishhh….. Do they have to wait to loose lives first before they change the ways they are doing things? * sighs *
P.S. Sorry sisters for ranting my frustration here.
Kailey, you’re right.
This is a very close shave… JKS is very very lucky that nothing worse happened.
But to continue as per what they have always done (i.e. driving under fatiigue) is plain waiting for disaster to happen.
The way the Korean filming industry works is beyond our control, but I’m sure everyone will agree that Tree-J’s top priority is JKS’ safety in all circumstances. They should seriously consider employing a fresh, careful and alert driver for the duration of the hectic filming, and even two drivers to rotate if that is necessary.
Let’s hope this won’t happen again to Sukkie..I think it’s happened because all of the Tri-J staff got tired and didn’t get enough sleep.. Tenshi Akuma was right, his tight schedule and shooting style is one of causes this accident happened.
we’ll keep supporting you, uri prince..but please don’t get involve with any worrisome tragedy..:(
Let’s shift our depressed feeling to positive one. He was about to get a big damage, but fortunately he could manage to continue shooting. It could have been worse. I know it’s too early to think he’s OK. But today is Monday. Love Rain day! Let’s love Love Rain which Sukkie really tries to act best with all our soul! 🙂
oh my! he was seated the front seat???? :((
stvcri, I’m not sure. I found other news said he was seated the backseat.
Can’t stop thanking God for this. I agree with Tenshi that this happening actually touches and stems from a lot of sensitive issues, but the most important of all is that JKS and the managers are safe.
JKS’ “S” and professional side arise again, but I do hope that he’ll get better (i mean physically and psychologically). I remember he mentioned way back that he also had a near-death experience while heading to a shooting site, but the news yesterday was so real, i know it shook a lot of people..
Thank God, and eels are always praying for your safety…
I feel like crying while I see his face-close pic.. Sukkie should go to check-up throughly in the hospital, He is hard rock… Suk take care ur health.. hope u to recover very fast.. sleep more… eat more… Suk ^^
