The Hallyu star went to the hospitals to visit 30 fans who had been hospitalized. They had been injured from a sudden gust of wind while they visited the film set of the animated version of "Winter Sonata" in Jeongdongjin, Gangneung in Gangwondo province on March 12.
A spokesperson from Bae Yong-joon's agency, BOF, said, "Bae Yong-joon visited four hospitals in the Gangneung area, where the wounded fans are hospitalized, and expressed his sincere regret". He added, "Bae Yong-joon met all the injured fans one by one in person and consoled them, wishing their quick recovery while he offered an apology for the accident".
The number of injured fans who were hurt by broken set equipment (caused by the sudden gust of wind at around 3 pm on March 12) is 32, including 28 Japanese tourists. They had come to the filming location to watch the filming of the last episode of the animated version of "Winter Sonata", in which Bae Yong-joon and Choi Ji-woo appear.
BOF described the accident by saying, "Bae Yong-joon was taking a commemorative photograph with fans. In the middle of the photo shoot, there were suddenly strong winds that were powerful enough to make people lose their balance. So they stopped taking pictures and moved to the inside of the resort. At that moment, the rostrum, which was set up to take pictures, and a post set up to guide the filming fell down, and some of the onlookers were injured".
BOF added, "The company will provide its utmost efforts to take care of the fans injured by this accident to aid their recovery".
