Stars of TV drama 'Wolf' injured in car accident

Moon Jeong-hyeok (Eric Mun) and Han Ji-min, the main actors of a new MBC drama, "Neukdae ("Wolf)"", were injured yesterday in a car accident during the filming of the series.

According to Moon's manager Lee Jong-hyuk, the two were acting in a scene where Bae Dae-chul (Moon) saves Han Ji-su (Han) from a car accident, but the car that was supposed to stop right in front of them failed to stop and hit them.

They were thrown up in the air before hitting the ground. They were immediately carried away to nearby Inje University Seoul Paik Hospital, where they are both being treated.

According to the hospital, Moon, also known as Eric from popular boy band "Shinhwa", doesn't need immediate surgery, but has to rest at least for four weeks as his right ankle and spine are damaged.

Han, a promising young actress, is said to be unable to move her head and it is painful for her to eat or drink. "She doesn't need an operation, but she seems to need a thorough examination as she says that she has double vision", said a hospital official. The injuries caused by the accident are expected to have an effect on the popular drama which airs every Monday and Tuesday night. MBC consequently has decided to have "Best Theater" and other programs fill in "Wolf" for two weeks.
