Following Kim Hyun Joong, Kim Joon and Lee Min Ho, now Kim Bum of “Boys Before Flowers” has also met with a car accident last Sunday night (1st Feb). However, his injuries were not serious. This means that the five main cast of “Boys Before Flowers”, F4 and Goo Hye Sun, have met with accidents one way or another while filming for the drama.
At around 9pm of Sunday night (1st Feb), while travelling to the “Boys Before Flowers” filming location at Gyeonggi Do, Kim Bum’s car was crashed onto by a vehicle from behind (supposedly tailgating) while his manager was paying fee at a toll station. Both Kim Bum and his manager suffered injuries with his manager being the more serious, sent to the hospital for checkup later. As for Kim Bum, he has hurt his waist area and is scheduled to undergo a more precise checkup today.
Kim Bum’s management agency revealed: “What happened was that Kim Bum’s manager stuck his/her head out of the window in order to get the receipt but their car was knocked by another vehicle from behind. Despite the accident, the duo continued to the destination, thinking that they did not had any injuries. However later, symptoms developed, the manager’s neck was swollen and therefore he/she proceeded to Seoul Kang Nam Ahn Shi Hospital for a precise checkup yesterday (2nd Feb) after finishing the shoot. The manager is currently hospitalized. Kim Bum rushed to film a CF after that and complained of sharp pains around his waist area. He will be going for a checkup today.
What is the chance of someone getting into a car a accident? And what are the chances of all 5 main leads of a drama getting into accident (All F4 members with car accidents)? Seriously, are they all really that unlucky or is this some kind of publicity stunt? I mean, I really hope they are alright but everything is a little too coincidental. I hope there will not be a next.
