So I guess this backbone injury is pretty serious. After injuring his spinal cord during the filming of The Duo, Chun Jung Myung was unable to get proper treatment because there was still two weeks of filming left. Now that his drama has wrapped up, he’s finally able to get the much-needed care that he needs.
Physicians have already told him that this injury could potentially be fatal, but he decided to persevere through the pain by taking painkillers during the shoots. He’ll be receiving surgery tomorrow, and will spend time to recover.
Oh PIE, please get better. As much as I love you in dramas, I’m more than happy to hear that you’re no longer filming for Duo, because you can finally rest peacefully.
I’m sending happy thoughts and optimistic prayers that the surgery will be successful and that this backbone injury will not affect him for the rest of his life. I’m sure he’ll have to go through therapy treatments after the surgery to overcome the pain.
