“Love in the Moonlight” (구르미 그린 달빛) actress Kim Yoo Jung (김유정) has been hospitalised for stress-induced shock.
In a statement, her label, Sidus HQ, said, “Kim Yoo Jung showed signs of stress-induced shock in the evening of 26th December and was immediately rushed to the hospital. She is currently receiving treatment at the hospital, and we will need to make changes to her current schedule of movie promotions and end-of-the-year awards ceremonies.”
Prior to this, the 17-year-old actress visited the emergency room several days ago due to fatigue and a bad cold. While the cause of the stress is unknown, many fans and netizens believed that it has something to do with her recent controversy.
Apparently, Kim has been criticised for her “rude” and “unpleasant” behaviour during the movie screening for “Because I Love You” (사랑하기 때문에), a South Korean rom-com that stars Cha Tae Hyun and Seo Hyun Jin. She was seen standing on one leg on stage while looking uninterested, angering many Korean netizens.
“At first, I thought it was no big deal but if she’s on stage, she has to show perfection because that’s her job”, said one netizen.
Well whatever it is, we wish her a speedy recovery. Get well soon, Yoo Jung!
