UPDATE August 20:
Actor Huh Dong Hwan, who is currently working on Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, has been tested positive with COVID-19 after having contact with actor Seo Sung Jong.
The two had contact when they were practicing for the play “Jjamppong.” As soon as Seo Sung Jong was confirmed with the coronavirus, Huh Ding Hwan got tested and went into self-isolation. But today, he was confirmed positive with the virus and has been transferred to an isolation facility.
As a result, the drama is now on the verge of being suspended.
An official from the drama said, “We are checking into the facts. If he was real confirmed positive, all filming would be stopped, and every staff and actors will have to be tested.”
KBS2’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol has also stopped filming after an actor (Seo Sung Jong) from To All The Guys Who Loved Me has been confirmed with COVID-19 and is waiting for the results of some staff’s coronavirus tests.
While KBS2’s Monday-Tuesday drama To All The Guys Who Loved Me, in which Seo Sung Jong appeared, has been on alert, it was officially confirmed that Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol, where some of the same staff members worked, also stopped filming as well.
In response, the production team of Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol made an official position, saying, “Some of the staff were also working on To All The Guys Who Loved Me. There were no direct contacts, but staff have been tested and are waiting for the results.” They also added, “Today’s shooting will be canceled for the safety of the staff and actors. We will keep a close eye on the situation and do our best to ensure safety.”
An official added, “We are set to air next week, but we are not in a situation where we have to worry about whether it will air or not because we have enough footages.” The results for the tests will come out on August 20.
The aftermath seems to be reaching all directions as the actor was confirmed with COVID-19.
