Lee Bum Soo Continues Filming “Prime Minister and I” Despite Needing Hand Surgery

Actor Lee Bum Soo is said to have fractured a finger while filming the movie “God’s Trick.”

A representative told Star News that, “Lee Bum Soo was diagnosed as needing surgery for his fracture.” According to the representative, Lee Bum Soo is filming for “God’s Trick” alongside KBS 2TV Monday-Tuesday drama “Prime Minister and I,” and because of his hectic schedule, he’s had no choice but to postpone his surgery. “Lee Bum Soo is unable to fix the date of his operation for the time being due to his filming schedule. He removes his cast when filming. It’s a pity watching from the side. Lee Bum Soo’s passion towards acting cannot be stopped.”

Lee Bum Soo fractured the little finger on his left hand while filming an action scene for “God’s Trick” on November 14. He briefly visited the emergency room for treatment, but returned to film for “Prime Minister and I” on the same day.

Chess movie “God’s Trick” also stars actors Jung Woo Sung, Ahn Sung Ki, Kim In Kwon and Choi Jin Hyuk, while “Prime Minister and I” is currently airing every Monday and Tuesdays on KBS 2TV at 10:00 PM (KST).
