The massive flood that has recently brought Seoul to a standstill has also greatly affected the entertainment industry, with shooting for drama serials becoming delayed as sets became flooded and Korean stars found it difficult to get to work, reported Korean media.
The production teams for Korean dramas like “Heartstrings” and period epic “Warrior Baek Dong Soo” were forced to make last-minute scheduling changes to accommodate the problems brought about by the flood.
Still, the flood which was brought about by heavy rains had the happy side-effect of allowing some lucky K-pop fans to share the same subway train with their idols.
Photographs of star sightings on the subway were abundant on various Korean Internet forums over the past few days.
Flood waters, sometimes two stories deep, have made it impossible to travel by car in certain areas of Seoul, so singers like Korean girl group Rainbow’s Jae Kyung and boy band Super Junior’s Cho Kyu Hyun had no choice but to take the subway to get where they needed to go.
“It’s raining a lot. We are adhering to our scheduled appointments by taking the subway!” tweeted Jae Kyung on Wednesday.
“I think I should put in effort to live and work harder after watching people go to work despite the nasty weather! Everyone, let’s not give up and overcome this weather disaster!”
Ugh how dare one take the subway! NYC Mayor does it every day!
