The cast of military musical Shinheung Military Academy was involved in a car accident in Sinsa-dong earlier today (March 26) while they were en route to their performance venue.
According to entertainment officials, the car accident was bad enough that the bus windows were broken, and both the actors in the musical as well as the staff on board the bus were taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries.
Due to the number of staff members and actors in the musical at the hospital being treated for minor injuries such as cuts or bruises, the production team has decided to cancel the performance for today. The actors and staff who were confirmed to have no injuries were moved to the performance hall.
