Park Bo Young is the perfect example of hard work and professionalism.
The actress enjoyed great popularity while filming one of the most popular JTBC dramas of all time “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon”, but behind the scenes the actress has been suffering from a bad ankle injury.
Back in April the actress had injured her ankle but decided to endure the pain while filming for the drama to not hinder or delay it in any way.
Thankfully, the actress went through a surgery two months later once her drama “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” finished shooting. Her agency only gave an update on her ankle surgery two days ago.
The agency stated,
“She has almost fully recovered from the surgery she had, she’ll be able to attend the Seoul Drama Awards tomorrow.
Back when she injured her ankle the doctor advised her to wear a cast but since she was shooting for her drama she decided to use an ankle tape instead and proceed with physical therapy. The ankle surgery she had wasn’t major at all, it only took 20 minutes.”
The actress has attended the award show on September 7 and won Best Actress for Hallyu Drama Award. The actress is also set to start filming her upcoming movie “Your Marriage” this month.
We’re really glad that unnie is doing fine, we were so worried about her.
Congrats on winning big in Seoul Drama Awards unnie!
I don’t know guys… I am torn here, usually I really really don’t like it when actors or actress do that, I mean we love them and don’t mind waiting for them if we have to, hurting themselves on the long run for a drama role isn’t really worth it in my opinion.
But I can’t say I don’t understand her, wearing a cast to the set would have been burdensome to her and to everyone around her, she has to take it off while filming and put it back when they’re done, it just doesn’t make sense. Back then “Strong Woman Do Bong Soon” was a huge hit and fans from all over the world tuned in to each episode every week anticipating the progress.
I guess in her mind she thought it would disappoint fans if she decided to halt everything for the sake of her ankle, so I do understand her decision but I don’t support such harmful decisions.
This isn’t the first Korean actress who was injured and had to endure it while filming on set, but in general Korean actors and actresses try their best to avoid messing with the shooting schedule because in most cases they’re filming while the drama is airing.
This is why I support pre-produced dramas, you get the time you want to perfect the drama, in case anything happens you have a backup and can push back the drama if you have to, you can also work on perfecting the editing once you’re done shooting.
If you film and release the episode simultaneously you can’t take any break and in the case of our unnie you have to endure your injury and wait until the drama is over to do a surgery. I admire her professionalism, she hid it well, I didn’t notice it, she is a pro.
Enough ranting, I am glad she’s fine and congrats on winning the award last night!
