Eric Hurt in Gallant Attempt to Save Han Ji-min


K-pop singer-cum-actor Eric and actress Han Ji-min, both starring in "Wolves", were slightly injured when they were hit by a stunt car while shooting the MBC TV drama near Namdaemun in Seoul on Sunday. The two stars were treated at a nearby hospital.

Eric's agency Good Entertainment Group said the driver of the car, which was supposed to run toward Eric and Han Ji-min and stop in front of them, presumably misunderstood the signals and ran at them at a speed of 40 km/h without stopping. Eric performed a gallant fling-yourself-at-the-girl-and-fall-out-of-the-carí»s-way maneuver, according to the agency -- which was indeed what he was supposed to do in the scene. Eric plays Haní»s secretary.

Due to the accident, MBC-TV will break the Monday and Tuesday schedule for the soap. The third episode will be aired on Monday as scheduled but the fourth episode on Tuesday will not. MBC said it will substitute the fourth episode with another show, while the episodes on Jan. 30 and 31 will also be replaced with special programs for Lunar New Year's holidays.
