Joo-won injured while filming 1N2D
javabeans: Uh-oh, bad news for Joo-won, who just suffered an injury to the nose while filming an upcoming episode of 1 Night 2 Days. Apparently he was knocked unconscious mid-shoot, then taken to the emergency room while filming stopped.
girlfriday: Eeeeeep. I know we always joke about wanting the games on 1N2D to be violent, but not this kind of violent.
javabeans: Yes, like forehead-flicking and shin-kicking. Not face-disfiguring. He was reportedly playing the “king” role in a “game of pride” involving football when he hit his nose on someone else’s head and was unable to get up. He reportedly also hurt his nose while filming Level 7 Civil Servant, but I don’t think that was a big injury. Still, not the face!
girlfriday: It’s like Rule No. 1. Don’t mess with The Pretty. They violated Rule No. 1.
javabeans: I can’t believe that he was knocked out cold, had to go to the hospital, and the articles all laud his “professionalism” in returning to shoots right away. There’s a reason all those actors can’t drop dramas when they’re hurt! Like they’re going to be That Guy when the whole of the industry is making you the hero for playing injured.
girlfriday: It’s a terrible cycle with no winners. Except for horses. They seem to always come out on top. Like if your actors are literally phoning it in from a hospital bed, there’s something wrong here, don’tcha think?
javabeans: For now I’m just glad this wasn’t a bigger accident than it could have been—and from watching this show, we know how crazy those games can get. And Joo-won does tend to get competitive about everything, especially when losing means he has to miss out on dinner and watch his hyungs eat.
girlfriday: I’ll laugh (in hindsight, once I know he’s okay) if it was over something really small like cookies or one bite of something.
javabeans: I do wonder how it’ll play out on air, though. (The episode airs on the 19th.) This new editor/PD seems to do exactly the opposite of what I want, showing too much of some things and nothing at all of others.
girlfriday: It would be ridiculous to cut around it and pretend it didn’t happen, but this PD makes some weird choices. I guess we’ll see. For now maybe Joo-won should lay off the competitive games, or just learn to embrace losing.
javabeans: Even if it means starving more? I’m not sure he can take that gracefully, or you know, at all. Then again, Grumpy Joo-won can be a new thing.
girlfriday: There might be tears, but you don’t see his hyungs Tae-hyun or Tae-woong with busted noses now, do you?
javabeans: This can be his time to hone his begging skills, which Tae-hyun has perfected to an art form. He’s already got the aegyo pout and voice down.
girlfriday: Less violence, more dancing. I can live with that.
