Song Il Guk Hospitalized

It was reported that Song Il Gook fell off his horse yesterday morning (6th Jan) at around 10am (Korean time) while filming for drama “The Kingdom of the Winds“. He was unconscious after the fall and only regained conscious after being sent to a nearby hospital.

Through a thorough check-up using MRI, Song Il Gook was found to suffer only external injuries and no broken bones that is common for any injuries sustained after falling from a horse.

A crew member from the production team said: “Song Il Gook will rest for a day in the hospital and return to the team on the 7th. Song Il Gook can be considered the best horse rider among all the Korean actors, we didn’t think that this kind of accident would happen. We will take extra precautionary measures next time to prevent a similar accident from happening.”

Luckily it isn’t serious. Having already filmed countless number of period dramas, I do agree that he may be one of the best horse rider among the Korean actors.
