After news broke out that Strong Woman Do Bongsoon actor, Kim Won Hae tested positive for the coronavirus, it seems that a string of actors are now in danger due to having come in contact with him. Kim Won Hae is appearing in theatrical piece, Jjamppong, alongside actor Heo Dong Won, who appeared in When The Camellia Blooms. After Kim Won Hae was confirmed for the virus, on the 20th of August, it was confirmed that Heo Dong Won had also been afflicted.
From here on, it is an utter downwards spiral. Hotel Del Luna‘s Magoshin, Seo Yi Sook, who is currently filming for the upcoming drama Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol and had come in contact with confirmed patient, Heo Dong Won. Both Seo Yi Sook and Heo Dong Won were filming together for Dol Dol Sol Sol La La Sol, and today he was confirmed for the coronavirus. Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol stars Go Ah Ra and Lee Jae Wook. It has yet to be announced if the two leads were involved in the day’s filming.
Seo Yi Sook has since been sent out for testing, and is under self-quarantine. However, between the time she was made aware of the news of Heo Dong Won’s contraction of the virus and their filming together, she had visited the filming site for upcoming drama, Start-up, which stars big names including Nam Joo Hyuk and Suzy. It has yet to be announced however, if they had come into contact with Seo Yi Sook.
Due to the nature that the virus spreads through contact quickly, it begs the question, will these two dramas be okay? Start-up is set to air in October while Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol will air on the 26th of August. Filming for both has not yet wrapped up, so if the situation gets out of hand, airing may have to be postponed. Watch this space!
