After Moon Geun-young fractured her nose in filming for Painter of the Wind, drama production slowed to a halt as their star was forced to take some time off and recover. Now production is hoping their star will be ready to get back to work as early as October 17.
On October 15, a rep for Moon Geun-young said, “She will be returning to the set sometime this week. It’ll be difficult for her to return by the 15th as originally estimated, but if things go well we think she’ll be back by Friday.”
Moon is reportedly doing much better following minor surgery, although there’s still a lot of swelling in her face. She is currently resting at home.
Because of the filming delays, this week fans will only be able to see “special” broadcasts (i.e., mostly filler footage and cut scenes cobbled together as a sort of slapdash behind-the-scenes program. However, with only six episodes aired so far, I doubt there’ll be that much worth watching). If things go as planned, episode 7 should air on the 22nd, next Wednesday.
