Yoo Ji Tae surprised the show’s staffers and production crew with the coats on December 9 at his own expense. It was reported that the actor decided to give the coats as a way to lift the spirits of the staff, who had been working in sub-zero temperatures (Celsius) for a number of days.
He didn’t just pay for the coats, however. He went so far as to greet each staff member individually, and personally presented each with his/her coat. As the pictures show, they had a hard time hiding their excitement.
According to a source from Yoo Ji Tae’s talent agency, Namoo Actors, “Yoo Ji Tae struggled to find an appropriate gift for the crew, finally settling on the idea of giving them coats. He hopes that they suit the crew well as they continue to work in the cold.”
“Healer” is an action romance drama in which young characters, apathetic to both politics and justice, must face a dark world left behind by their parents’ generation. Yoo Ji Tae plays the part of star reporter Kim Mun Ho in the series. It airs every week on Monday and Tuesday at 10 p.m.
