On May 10th a report and video originating from a surfing school confirmed that Kim Hee-ae suffered a dangerous accident during an ocean scene in the fourteenth episode of "The World of the Married". In the scene, Kim Hee-ae's character can be seen as perilously close to the ocean, her being in a very poor state of mind. The scene was also confirmed to have been filmed at an aquatic training center on the coast near Gangneung city.
According to the source "The World of the Married" was doing filming for the fourteenth episode of the drama on April 14th in the same area that the surfing school was practicing rescue operations. During the scene, Kim Hee-ae drifted off into the deep ocean to the great panic of the staff. However, the staff had a safety manual on hand to consult in the event of such contingencies, and were able to resolve the situation by following its instructions.
The source praised Lee Moo-saeng's actions in particular as being heroic. In a video accompanying the report, Lee Moo-saeng can be seen staying calm in an unexpected situation as he and Kim Hee-ae await rescue. In the relevant scene Lee Moo-saeng's character saves Kim Hee-ae's character from her own apparently suicidal impulses.
The video appears to have been released with permission from "The World of the Married", as it is only surfacing now so as to avoid spoilers. No one appears to have suffered serious injury from the incident. The news also appears to have confirmed, however inadvertently, that filming for "The World of the Married" is already complete. If the final two episodes were filmed on a similar schedule to the fourteenth one, they were most likely shot around two to three weeks ago.
