Bus crash on set of Bridal Mask results in fatality

Holy crap, holy crap. The production of upcoming period drama Bridal Mask has just had a huge accident; a bus crash has killed one actor and seriously injured 30 others.

The accident occurred in the early-morning hours of April 18, at approximately 5:30 am, involving the broadcast station bus that was heading to the filming location in Daebyeong-myeon, Gyeongsamnam-do province, near Hageum village. The bus went over the ridge between rice paddies and overturned. Oh shit. You know how you see those dramas where the picturesque rice paddies are divided by the occasional road, and you wonder what keeps the cars from falling off the road into the ditch on either side? Yeah, apparently it’s nothing.

The bus was carrying extras, one of whom died in the crash. Thirty others suffered serious injuries and were taken to the hospital for treatment. One source with the production said that there may have been a problem with the bus’s brakes, but there’s been no official word yet on the cause. According to the CP, all filming has halted on the show for the next two days.

Bridal Mask is the 1930s period action drama starring Joo-won as a masked freedom fighter during Korea’s movement for independence from Japanese rule. It’s currently planning to follow Equator Man on KBS, but I wonder if that will hold with the accident. Dramas tend to adopt a “show must go on” mentality when accidents occur, but you have to think the story changes somewhat when a fatality is involved. There’s precedent for dramas being cancelled mid-production due to accident (see: Eric and Han Ji-min’s Wolf in 2006 — but in that case the accident involved the star).

Sad, sad story. Condolences for the deceased, and best wishes to those in recovery.

That's so terrible. Thoughts and prayers go out to their families. I was so scared Joo Won was injured or worse when I saw his face and the title and just jumped to conclusions! Glad to know he's okay, but how horrific...

Oh dear god, so sorry for their loss.
How does the cast and crew recover from that?
Usually people get really close on the sets, and they get to know each other from drama to drama, too.

I thought it was going to be someone with a starring role but it makes me even more sad to know that it was an extra. This could have been their first drama and their dream coming true even if just a small part and now it's gone...

I hope for a speedy, safe recovery for the injured and condolences to the families.

Oh god this need to stop! Car accidents always happen, be it when they are going to set or going away from it!

They need to stop using the same driver who ends up sleeping on the wheel and causing it!

RIP to the family and hope the others recover well.

To be fair,

"One source with the production said that there may have been a problem with the bus’s brakes, but there’s been no official word yet on the cause."

We have no details yet, thus can't assume the driver was sleeping on the wheel. For now my thoughts and prayers are with the victims.

Oh dear, this is sad, sad, news. I hope that Bridal Mask takes its time to recover, and I'm so sorry to everyone that was involved, and their families. While I honestly can't wait for this drama, I hope that they will take time off and recover completely. I wish for a speedy recovery for the other thirty extras! :( Best of luck to them.

considering the amount of car related accidents celebrities get involved with in korea I guess it was bucking the odds that one would not end up with sadly a death. Think it was only last week Jang Nara had a car crash heading from filming strong heart to a live mnet music show and there been so many others. Guess all those time the drama hero saves the girl from getting run over by a car, not so far fetched after all..:-(

In Seoul, car accidents are fairly common (and it's not surprising, if you've ever been there, you know how insanely people drive), so that's a bit different than this, which happened outside of Seoul, and in an area with presumably less traffic. But no, those saving-people-from-getting-hit scenes really aren't far-fetched. I can't tell you how many times people yelled at me to move or pulled me out of the way of cars that were not going to stop in Seoul last semester...
