Bae Yong Joon, an actor, paid all of the medical expenses for the fans who got injured due to the unexpected accident.
On the 12th, about 30 Japanese tourists who got injured while they visited the animation WS filming site at the resort in Jeongdongjin, Gangwondo, received treatment at the nearby hospital. An officer of Keyeast, which is the BYJ’s management company, said, “The management company will take care of all the medical expenses related to the treatment. Bae Yong Joon visited all of the injured fans who visited Korea to see him, and apologized to them.”
As of the 14th of March, in the afternoon, all but one tourist returned to Japan after they received treatment. BYJ’s management company checked all of the flight schedules of the tourists who couln’t keep up with their schedules. The same officer from Keyeast added, “Only one female tourist is hospitalized now. We recommended her to receive more treatment until she recovers completely because the hospital advised her to do so. All the other injured fans got on the plain without any problems after they were discharged from the hospital.
Bae Yong Joon is in position to take full responsibilities of the future problems which might take place. Someone related to him said, “Even though they returned to Japan, we’ll keep watching them until they recover fully. We will disclose future procedures related to the compensation if there are any and prepare for the suitable remedies.”
On that day, the accident occurred due to the sudden weather change. About 30 tourists who stayed in the filming site were injured because the facilities fell down by a strong wind after two cast members left.
