TV actor Choi Su-jong suffered mild injuries when his van crashed with a truck on an expressway in central Korea early Wednesday morning, his manager said.
The 50-year-old veteran actor, who is currently starring in the TV drama "The King's Dream," was traveling in his van from Suwon, south of Seoul, to a movie set in Andong, 268 kilometers southeast from the capital, when the crash occurred on a section of the Jungbu Expressway around 4.30 a.m. Wednesday.
Choi was rushed to a hospital after complaining of pain in his neck and back. His manager, who was driving the vehicle, was also lightly injured, according to another manager in Seoul. He added the front of the van was severely damaged.
The actor canceled his shooting after the accident but was quoted as saying he will continue to film the drama as well as undergo medical treatment as he does not want to affect the shooting schedule.
Since his debut in 1987, Choi has become one of the most popular actors in South Korea, appearing in many historical dramas. (Yonhap)
