On a recent episode of MBC‘s Point of Omniscient Interfere, Goo Hye Sun made her first TV appearance since her divorce controversy, where she revealed a behind-the-scenes story about the time she suffered a concussion on the set of Boys Over Flowers.

On the show, Goo Hye Sun’s current agency CEO mentioned just how fierce the competition was for the casting of the hit drama.

The casting of Boys Over Flowers was crazy. Pretty much all the female actresses tried out for it.

And Goo Hye Sun confessed that all she remembers is the difficult time in response.

It wasn’t fair. Once I went through all the hardship of getting hit by flour and eggs, the guys would appear at the very end looking cool.

But the more shocking revelation was the fact that Goo Hye Sun suffered a concussion during one of the scenes.

We were filming the scene where she falls backwards into the pool, but I fell in head first and suffered a concussion. Since we would’ve had to cancel the episode if we stopped, we kept filming the scene.

On top of that, Goo Hye Sun suffered the aftermath of the injury one week later, as well as another injury.

I fainted in the middle of filming a week later. On top of that, we got into a car accident, and I split my lip.

Goo Hye Sun explained that back then, female actresses had to be brave.

Back then, you had to be that brave to be an actress. You couldn’t just say no because it was scary. It was a repetition of getting hurt and going to the hospital. I was so busy I didn’t even have time to get mad.

Although the result of her struggles was a viral drama that took the world by storm, it’s still unfortunate she had to suffer at all!

Now that’s what you call dedication.
