[Talk of town]Real life punch-up upstages SBS drama
Yoo was enraged because the scripts were turned in late, which exhausted Jeon. He visited the set and had a bust-up with two of the producers, Kim Yong-woo, who took four weeks to recover, and Lee Chang-woo, whose jaw was hurt.
Yoo went into hiding after the incident. Kim and Lee, supported by the SBS Producers’ Association and Producer Journal demanded that Yoo apologize and admit responsibility.
It took Yoo two weeks to apologize officially. He visited the set and offered a bow to Kim Young-seon, the vice chairman of a joint labor union for Korean stations. “Yoo said that he had been concerned about his wife but that he regrets his actions,” Kim said.
“All matters have been resolved, but the union wants to know the circumstances that led to the assault,” Kim added.
Jeon resumed acting last Friday after a short break following the incident.
