Kwon Sang Woo ruptured his Achilles tendon while working out.
The actor’s agency told a media outlet, “Kwon Sang Woo ruptured his Achilles tendon while working out. He already had surgery because when he hurt his ankle bone and ligament, and this same part became a problem again.”
Kwon Sang Woo is scheduled to undergo surgery to reconstruct the ruptured area. His agency added, “As soon as the result for his COVID-19 test comes out, he will undergo surgery. He will most likely undergo operation today.”
Kwon Sang Woo is currently filming for the film The Pirates: Goblin Flag (literal title) and SBS drama Delayed Justice. Most of his scenes in The Pirates: Goblin Flag have already been filmed, but Delayed Justice, which just aired its 4th episode, will have to face some setbacks as the lead actor would have to be absent for some time.
Kwon Sang Woo’s agency added, “We will have to consult with the film and drama teams to coordinate future schedules.”
