Actress Kim Sa-rang has been hospitalized after fracturing her leg during a visit to Italy last weekend.
"Kim fell into a hole while browsing in a furniture store in Milan, Italy. There was no sign or warning around the hole. She fell about two meters and fractured her leg and suffered bruising all over her body," Kim's management agency said in a press release on Thursday.
She immediately complained of pain in her right leg after the fall and was taken to a nearby hospital with the help of first-aid workers and police, the agency said.
"It was determined that Kim needed surgery, but she decided to have an operation in Korea, as she had difficulty communicating with local medical staff and no guardian was present to sign a consent form for the surgical procedure to be performed," it added.
Kim quickly returned to Korea last Saturday and had surgery at a hospital in Seoul the following day.
Kim won the Miss Korea pageant in 2000 and later pursued a career as an actress, appearing in multiple TV series since then.
