Eugene Drops Project to Care for Sister

Eugene will be pulling out of her upcoming drama, ‘Color of Woman’, to care for her younger sister, who got involved in a serious car accident while in Guam. Her younger sister, Yookyung, is currently in the hospital after getting run over by her parked car when it rolled down the hill. She is suffering from a fractured spine and bruises all over her body.

Hearing of the accident, Eugene made the difficult decision to pull out of her first drama since getting married earlier this year to actor, Ki Tae Young.

Her agency, G.G Entertainment, stated, “Eugene heard of the sudden accident while on her way back from a concept meeting for ‘Color of Woman’. She is currently feeling very uneasy; she is unable to sleep and is in great shock.” They continued, “This was a difficult decision made after negotiations with the production team over this situation. She hopes for understanding and apologizes to all the fans who have anticipated her return.”

The drama production agency stated, “We regret Eugene’s unfortunate leave. We hope for a speedy recovery for her sister. We are currently looking for another actress to take her place. We will choose an actress that will match up to the high expectations of fans.”
