Sad news today. I just read that there was a case reported with Covid 19 in the set of Bossam- Stealing Fate.  It says it was an assistant performer, it could mean an assistant to one of the performers or a supporting role performer. Time will tell. Here is the translation of the article.  It comes via Naver and the original is HERE.

At the filming site of the drama “Bossam” starring actor Jung Il-woo, Kwon Yu-ri, a confirmed Corona 19 came out and the filming took an emergency. The main cast and production crew were tested for Corona 19, and some cast members, such as Kwon Yuri, were negative.

According to a broadcaster on the 23rd, a corona 19 confirmed person came out at the filming site of the MBN drama ‘Bossam: Steal Destiny’ starring actor Jung Il-woo and Kwon Yu-ri. This drama has been filmed with the aim of broadcasting in the first half of next year.

A broadcast official said, “One of the drama’s assistant performers was confirmed to be coronavirus, and the filming was temporarily stopped.” Both the production crew and officials who were in close contact with the confirmed person or were in the same place were tested for corona and entered self-isolation.

The actors who appeared on the set also caught an emergency due to the occurrence of a confirmed case on the set. The main cast and production crew have been tested for corona and are waiting for the results. Some cast members, such as Jung Il-woo and Shin Hyun-soo, have undergone a corona test and are in self-quarantine in case of an unforeseen event, although the movement lines with the corona confirmed do not overlap. Jung Il-woo and Kwon Yu-ri received the notification on the same day. (Jung Il woo and Kwon Yu-ri received the notification of having tested negative on the same day)

“Bossam-Steal Destiny” is a romance drama about the love of two men and women. It captures what happens when a livelihood boss is accidentally bossing pottery. Jung Il-woo plays the bottom knuckle, “Bow,” and Kwon Yu-ri plays Ongju Su-kyung, born between Gwanghae-gun and Soui-yoon. Shin Hyun-soo, Shin Dong-mi, Yun Joo-man, and So Hee-jung also work together. PD Kwon Seok-jang, who directed the popular drama “Golden Time,” and writers Ji-soo Kim and Cheol Park, worked together.


I couldn’t sleep more this morning… and of course eventually I found out this news.

6:00am, raining outside…  My intuition says he’s fine, but there are other people involved.  I pray everyone is healthy soon and they can continue filming soon. When you pray picture him and the cast healthy!  Happily filming… we must always pray from a positive space no matter what.

This vaccine can’t come soon enough!

May the angels protect our dear Ilwoo!  May GOD bless him!
