Swine flu strikes Kim Nam-gil

Swine flu strikes the entertainment industry again: this time it’s Kim Nam-gil, aka “Bi-dam” of MBC’s Queen Seon-deok, which can only make the production team of that drama nervous as it heads into its final stretch of episodes (the drama will wrap by year’s end).

Kim’s management company confirmed on November 19 that the actor, who came down with flu-like symptoms two days ago, was confirmed with the H1N1 virus. For the time being he will have to focus on recovering, and the producers of the historical drama are making amendments to the scripts to account for his absence.

Kim Nam-gil said of his situation, “First I had a horse-riding accident, and now with the swine flu I’ve caused another difficulty for the broadcast, for which I feel very regretful. I’ll return to filming as soon as I have made a complete recovery. I’m sure it won’t take longer than this weekend, and afterward I will take more care to keep healthy.”

I'm sure he'll be alright. I had H1N1 as well 2 weeks ago, and it's not that bad... It just has a bad reputation

Hope he gets well soon.

Now about the storyline... It makes NO sense to me the reason why Bidam is going against Deokman now. The reason as we understand it is that Mishil told him before she died to "take all you can from the one you love". Hmmm. Okay, that makes a whole lot of sense. And it makes even more (non)sense that he decided to do just that. What are the writers thinking???!!

I stopped watching QSD a long time ago, but I do know that historical speaking (not that QSD is historically accurate), Bidam lead a rebellion against Queen Seonduk. So I'm guessing the writers needed a reason why he became "bad" and went against her. Though I have no idea what's going on in the series (I personally couldn't take it anymore), but Bidam was my favorite character. It didn't keep me watching the show, but enough that I've been checking out Kim Nam-gil's other works.

When I saw this I screamed...NOOOOOO BIDAMMMM.

Poor cast of QSD, they have a tough schedule and the cold, and the costumes, the craziness of it - I'm sure they're ready for it to just end.

I hope he feels better soon.

I heard rumors they may try to extends QSD again into next year, but I think everybody wants the show to conclude. Ratings have dipped since Mishil's big exit, and I don't really see them coming back.

"It makes NO sense to me the reason why Bidam is going against Deokman now"

Technically he's not. He's against Yushin. You have to interpret what he means by taking everything. Also, you also have to understand why Deokman gave Bidam so much power in the first place. It wasn't because she trusted him, it was because -- finally at the top -- she could trust nobody.

"What are the writers thinking???!!"

I like how the story's turned. Deokman is turning into Mishil in her own way. This is similar to how the writer did Dae Jang Geum. After the principal villain was defeated, they still had to one more story arc. And that story arc, reinforcing the argument that having that total power robs something of your soul, was in some ways the most depressing.

Kim Nam Gil i really like you, after watching QSD, i start dreaming of you... How sad in my part, coz you are the first man who make my heart beat faster and teach my heart how to admire a guy. Also you are the first man who gave me heartache because I know you will never be mine. How I wish I am a korean also, How I wish we are in the same industry, how I wish I'm your ideal girl.. But all that wishes of mine will never be come true.

OW C'MON! Cheer up Nam-Gil! I'm so sure, Yo-Won was worried about you those days. Haha. You seem to have a wonderful time being with your fellow casts in QSD especially Tae-Woong and Hyeon-Jeong. Whoa, abandoning someone is the hardest part in being a person. If they would, how could they?! More power!

@ Rna.
It's not like that the writers are going insane but the point is Bidam loves Deokman and he needs to take the important things away from her which his mom tells him to do. And which his stepdad ordered him. So without a doubt, he started a rebellion towards the queen to whom he very loved before. But the thing is, Kim Yushin was his very target. So that's why he died in the final episode. Hey who killed him? I'm gonna kill that person too! Picking up on a very handsome and talented guy! BIDAM!!!
