Yoo Yeon Seok’s Agency Reassures Fans After Film Co-Star Olga Kurylenko Tests Positive For Coronavirus
After French-Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko was revealed to have tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19), Yoo Yeon Seok’s agency gave an update on the status of the Korean-French movie “Matin Calme” (Calm Morning) starring the two actors.
On March 16, King Kong by Starship announced, “After hearing that Olga Kurylenko tested positive for COVID-19, we reached out to the French production company for confirmation, but we weren’t able to get in touch with them. Filming hasn’t started yet, so [Yoo Yeon Seok] hasn’t filmed with her yet. We haven’t heard about the shooting schedule since then.”
Earlier that day, Olga Kurylenko personally revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 via Instagram. She wrote, “Locked up at home after having tested positive for the coronavirus. I’ve actually been ill for almost a week now. Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!”
