Korean actor Kim Nam-gil has injured himself while filming his new film.
Kim accidentally fell off a horse and hurt his thigh while filming a horse riding scene in his upcoming film, whose title is translated into “Pirates,” an official with the actor’s agency Star J Entertainment told TenAsia over the phone on Friday.
Since it is an adventure action movie, the actor has suffered from many minor injuries or bruises and this injury is not that severe, the official explained.
The actor is currently resting in his place until his new shooting schedule starts next week, the official added.
Set in in the early Joseon Dynasty, the sea voyage film centers around a female pirate group and a male bandit group on a mission to hunt down a whale that swallowed the king’s stamp.
Co-starring actress Son Ye-jin, actor Yu Hae-jin and idol group f(x) member Sulli, the adventure film is set to premiere in Korean theaters next year.
