Choi Soo-jong fell off a horse while shooting the KBS drama "Dream of the Emperor" on Wednesday afternoon, fracturing his right shoulder and left hand.

He was thrown from his horse as it slipped on a snowy road while shooting a scene on a production set in Mungyeong, North Gyeongsang Province. The actor was immediately taken to a hospital in Seoul to receive treatment.

"We will fix the shooting schedule after we have seen how serious his injury is," said a KBS staffer. "But the show will continue to be broadcast this week as usual."

Choi, who plays a leading role in the drama, fell off another horse and hurt his right shoulder while shooting in October. In late September he injured his neck and back due to a car accident on the way to a production set for the same drama.
