Lee Seung-gi injured on the set of You’re All Surrounded

GACK. Not the puppy! Don’t hurt the puppy! *whimper* Filming halted on the set of SBS’s current Wednesday-Thursday drama You’re All Surrounded when lead actor Lee Seung-gi sustained a serious injury to his left eye while shooting in the early morning hours on Monday, June 9. The report came on June 10 that he was injured seriously enough to be hospitalized and that the show will have to be preempted. He was hit in the eye with a prop knife during an action sequence, and was rushed to the emergency room where he was treated for a hyphema (bleeding in the eye).

Producers stated that while Seung-gi was eager to return to the set, his pain and injury level were severe enough that the doctors insisted on bed rest. The production pushed for following doctor’s orders (thank goodness), and chose to preempt Wednesday’s broadcast. I know I shouldn’t be aghast that a show doesn’t even have enough footage in the can to air this week’s episodes, but sometimes the live-ness of the live-shoot still surprises me.

They’ll air a You’re All Surrounded special on Wednesday, and then Episode 10 will air on Thursday. Hopefully the doctor-prescribed rest will be enough for a speedy and full recovery, and that it won’t be rushed for the sake of drama shoots. Puppy needs both eyes!

At least this show has a number of ways you could write an injury into the story, given that our hero is a cop. He could even sport a rugged eye patch and score ’round-the-clock nursing from Soo-sun, or be doing offscreen sleuthing while the rest of the team gets special spotlight episodes. Until then, can we maybe look into a bubble, or some sort of protective casing for Seung-gi?

Please recover quickly! I hope he's not too upset about it. :( These type of eye injuries are seriously painful. I'm glad they didn't listen to him and made him rest.

And for the millionth time, live filming really has to stop.

I know he's not a child and can take care of himself, but I seriously considered the protective casing at time like this. Puppy is accident prone. Knocked things, tripping while walking, broken finger, various injuries while filming, and now this.

He can't be too active physically while bleeding in the eye, the pressure on the eye could be dangerous. Hope he get well soon.

as girlfryday said we should
look for a protectibe bubble as a casing around seung gi at all times when he is near dangerous props , running or handling bad guys.

360° bubble wrap all around poor seung gi please, especially during action scenes

and scenes with sharp objects like knives
and forks
and chopsticks

also heavy objects

maybe he should never take off the bubble wrap

getting 2 hours of sleep a night for months on end is enough to make anyone accident prone. as awful as this injury is, i'm glad he has an opportunity to rest.

not my puppy , don't hurt the puppy .* side eyeing the prop knife* i'm going to find and you and get you.

why do they need a prop
knife when they blur it out anyway??

remeber back in the day how he broke his fingure and got swine flue while the whole cast of 1n2d was fine and laughed how the clean and healthfreak got sick?

and bleeding in the eye must have hurt and must be serious for episode to be preempted again this week.

but who cares about the show when the hero is hurt. puppy needs both eyes .

get well soon seunggiyah!!!

hope you wont worry too much about the drama because ppl
love you to death anyway.

No, no, no, no, no.

Don't want him back on set before it's absolutely safe to do so. No drama is worth that, and that sounds like a very scary injury.

Boohoo to the live-shooting system, carelessness and rush that leads to these kind of things happening just way too often.

And all good wishes to lee seung-gi of course, fingers crossed there'll be no lasting damage to his eye.

can't believe he wanted to carry on the filming, he's serious?? I know he's a responsible puppy (and we love love love him for that) and he must be feeling guilty, but hey, eyes injuries if not properly healing'em they may lead him to loosing his sight (like blind dn't know the other word) and I dn't want anything bad to happen to him, he's so good and nice, he deserves good things only.

I know it might sound absurd and out of place (and i admit i'm not exactly following everything that's said in the forum), but WHY is everyone calling Lee Seung Gi a puppy ?

And... an eye-injury sounds very very scary and the fact that the guy has to get up and start filming in a few days makes the dramaland sound scary too!

Drama can wait, what's more important is his condition.. more importantly we really need to see him back with BOTH eyes.

Praying for your full and speed recovery Seunggi yah.

Though I am not watching this drama, from the likes of it, I really do wish Lee Seung Gi recovers quickly since infections can persist in the eye if care is not taken when the wound is in it's healing stages.

Sometimes the live shoot is detrimental to actors that they literally "have to give up an arm and leg".

Best wishes Seung Gi yah for recovery!

Apart from feeling sorry for LSG. I wish him speedy recovery. I sincerely feel the Korean drama industry is almost producing dramas like a fast food joint. Lots of dramas are filmed at the last min, they are okay for first few eps. But towards the end, the production is rushed and it shows by the standard of the current Korea dramas.

The show is great and all but compared to someone's eye the show becomes trivial.

Eyes are irreplaceable.

Puppy needs to get the best care and stay safe.

I, like many others, vote bubble wrap.

"Producers stated that while Seung-gi was eager to return to the set, his pain and injury level were severe enough that the doctors insisted on bed rest. The production pushed for following doctor’s orders (thank goodness), and chose to preempt Wednesday’s broadcast."

I never believe that the producers/production put the welfare of the actors above the production and profits.

If they are insisting he stay in bed is because they know the bad publicity that would come their way if he goes back on set and something goes wrong.

not all producers are evil, and they dont care about bad publicity either. During 3 Days, YooChun also had injury but he insisted on working, and the producer let hin to. Result? knetz praised his work ethics. Here, Puppy also wants to continue working, but the producer follows the doctor's instruction and asks him to rest.

cases were different tho , If seung gi got his muscles injured I am sure producer would have allowed him. but It's freaking eye injury we are talking about , so I think producers are not taking any risk.

I don't think all producers are evil. I don't even know one in life so I can't make a judgement about any individual producer as a person.

I think the culture of k-drama industry [I don't mean Korean culture because I don't know enough about Korean culture to have opinions worth sharing] is problematic. The number of serious accidents that actors, and not just journeymen actors but stars, have on set during filming is just unacceptable. By comparing journeymen actors to stars I don't mean to suggest that stars are more important. I am just suggesting that if there are protections in place, the stars would be better protected, and if stars are being injured then no one is protected except perhaps for child actors. [I have never heard of a child actors being injured--but then I am not in a position to hear everything.

The working conditions seems out-of-scale when you considered they are creating entertainment not saving lives or stopping fires. [Even though I sometimes feel as if I will die if my drama is delayed.]

And while I am not suggesting that the system used in the US is perfect, the existence of Unions and the presence Union representatives on set, protect actors.

Principle actors have different contractual protections, but the general contract are in place to protect less powerful performers from exploitation.
Non principals are paid a 100% for their hourly rate first eight hours of work [for easy math let's say $160/day $20/hr]. Hours 9-12 they are paid 150% of their hourly rate [$30/hr]. Hours 13-16 they are paid 200% of their hourly rate[$40/hr]. If filming goes into a 16th hour of filming without giving actors an 8-hour break then the actors are paid at a golden time rate which is equal to one day wages for every hour they are on set beyond 16 hours [$160/hr].

Those rules force directors and producer to think about how long they have actors on sets to protect themselves financially and as a result protects actors health.

With the live shoot system, it really adds a lot of stress on all involved in a drama production. For a main lead like Seung Gi to be unable to continue filming, it halts the production for everyone and he will feel guilt and great worry. So many people's pay checks on the line! However eyes are so important and I hope he won't force himself to resume filming.

Like what so many have said, I really don't understand the live shoot system. Won't it be better to have drama filming completed prior to broadcast to avoid such tension?

I think all sensible people are willing to wait as long as it takes for him to get better; eyes are anything but trivial.

But since they are only making us lose one episode, it super trivial to the schedule. Last week was only one episode, and it was a really tight story, awesome episode. Here is to believing the production crew.
