Jung Il Woo has been injured at the set of his upcoming movie “Highway Family” (literal translation).
On November 5, a source from his agency 9ato Entertainment stated that he injured his retina while filming and is currently resting after receiving treatment. He’s currently recovering and will resume filming after his treatment is finished.
“Highway Family” tells the story of the chance meeting between a family who goes camping at highway rest tops and a married couple who helps them out. Ra Mi Ran, Kim Seul GI, and Baek Hyun Jin have also been cast in the movie.
“Highway Family” is directed and written by rookie director Lee Sang Moon, who worked as an assistant director on “Young Adult Matters” and “The Bacchus Lady.”
The movie is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2022.
