Lee Yoo Young was really shocked upon hearing her boyfriend Kim Joo Hyuk’s passing news.
On October 30, actress Lee Yoo Young was reportedly filming for the new episode of SBS’s variety show Running Man in Busan when she learned of Kim’s sudden unfortunate accident.
According to her agency, the actress was totally shattered and kept checking if it was true that her boyfriend passed away. She then immediately returned to Seoul with the permission of the Running Man staff. Hence, the show’s filming was halted.
