Jung Il Woo Revealed To Have Been Injured On The Set Of His New Movie
Jung Il Woo sustained an injury while filming his upcoming movie “Highway Family” (literal translation).
On November 5, a source from his agency 9ato Entertainment stated, “Jung Il Woo injured his retina while filming and is currently resting after receiving treatment. Fortunately, his eye injury isn’t serious, so he will resume filming immediately after treatment and rest. He is presently at the recovery stage.”
“Highway Family” is about the chance meeting between a family who goes camping at highway rest stops and a married couple who helps them out. It is about the warm affection, compassion, trust, and hope that exists between people even in troubled times. Besides Jung Il Woo, the movie stars Ra Mi Ran, Kim Seul GI, and Baek Hyun Jin.
Ra Mi Ran will star as the owner of a secondhand furniture shop who is grieving for her son. Baek Hyun Jin will star as her husband, a quiet man who understands his wife’s grief and is her steadfast supporter. Jung Il Woo will star as the breadwinner of his family and the father of two children. Kim Seul Gi will star as his pregnant wife, as he takes her on a trip with no destination along with their two kids.
“Highway Family” is directed and written by rookie director Lee Sang Moon, who worked as assistant director on “Young Adult Matters” and “The Bacchus Lady.” It is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2022.
