Kang Ki-young and Woo Young will not participate in Bali vacation
“Woo Young-woo” Kang Ki-young will not be on vacation in Bali due to the COVID-19 confirmation, and Kang Tae-oh, Joo Jong-hyuk, and Ha Yoon-kyung, who recently filmed, will leave for Bali due to negative results.
According to OSEN coverage on the morning of the 8th, actor Kang Ki-young was confirmed to have COVID-19 (Coronavirus infection) last weekend, and will not attend the Bali vacation of the “Strange Lawyer Woo Young-woo” team scheduled for this week.
Earlier on the 5th, Kang Tae-oh, Kang Ki-young, Ha Yoon-kyung, and Joo Jong-hyuk, the main characters of the “Woo Young-woo” team, took a Naver Now shot. Since then, Kang Ki-young has been notified of COVID-19, and fellow actors have reportedly quickly conducted tests such as self-kits. As a result, Kang Tae-oh, Joo Jong-hyuk, and Ha Yoon-kyung all voiced, continuing their normal schedules.
In response, Kang Ki-young’s agency Namu Actors said, “Over the weekend, our actor Kang Ki-young tested positive in the self-kit test, which was conducted preemptively due to overlapping movements with the COVID-19 confirmed patient. Currently, Kang Ki-young has no special symptoms and plans to stop all scheduled schedules and focus on treatment.”
He added, “We put the health of all actors and staff first in accordance with the management guidelines of the quarantine authorities, and will do our best to take all measures.”
Kang Ki-young, who was confirmed to be infected with COVID-19, Woo Young-woo’s coach Yoo In-sik, excluding Kang Tae-oh, who is about to join the military, and Park Eun-bin, Joo Jong-hyuk, and Ha Yoon-kyung will leave for Bali, Indonesia, on the late afternoon of the 8th.
Meanwhile, the “Woo Young-woo” team’s trip to Bali is a little different from the nature of a reward vacation where all staff and actors leave, and it is a personal vacation schedule with only some actors who fit the director and schedule. In this regard, “Woo Young-woo” said, “We prepared ‘Golden Whale’ as a reward to writers, directors, and actors in Studio Genie to repay the hard work of the production team and actors,” adding, “In the case of prize vacation, it is unfortunately difficult for all staff to move.”
