On October 7, a source from upcoming SBS drama “Penthouse” belatedly revealed that two staff members have been injured on the set.
According to YTN, two staff members were injured during a fire scene as the flames grew unexpectedly bigger. Multiple sources added that the two members of the camera crew were injured during an outdoor fire scene at the SBS Tanhyeon Production Center in the city of Goyang in Ilsan. As a result, the filming scheduled for the day was completely suspended. Fortunately, the injuries weren’t that serious, and the two staff members reportedly returned to the set after two days.
The production crew of “Penthouse” released an official statement that reads as follows:
About three weeks ago, two staff members suffered minor abrasions and burns in an accident that occurred when the flames grew bigger while filming a fire scene.
The production crew stopped filming and provided both materially and psychologically for the injured staff members’ treatment.
We would like to apologize once again to the cast and crew, who must have been shocked about the incident. We will resume filming with the promise to provide a safe filming environment.
Once more, we apologize to the cast, crew, and viewers, and we will do our best to film safely.
“Penthouse” tells the story of a woman who strives to achieve her goal of entering high society by becoming the “queen” in the 100th floor penthouse in Gangnam, which is the pinnacle of success in her eyes. The drama will also touch on women who have no choice but to become villains in order to protect themselves. The main cast includes Lee Ji Ah, Kim So Yeon, Eugene, Uhm Ki Joon, Shin Eun Kyung, Bong Tae Gyu, Yoon Jong Hoon, Park Eun Seok, and Yoon Joo Hee.
The drama will premiere as planned on October 26 following the conclusion of “Do You Like Brahms?” and will be available on Viki.
