Lego Lee’s Back Injury Flares Up Requiring Filming Accommodations for His Role for In A Good Way

Oh noes, not another male lead fallen to the dreaded back injury! Last year Jung Kyung Ho injured his back towards the end of filming Cruel City and the poor guy endured through the drama wrapping before getting treatment. The first on set injury this year comes out of Taiwan as Lego Lee‘s old lumbar injury has flared up and he’s been in severe back pain since last week. Lego was at a press event for The Body Shop yesterday and revealed what happened – he’s an athlete so suffering various injuries and ailments is not surprising, two years ago he had to cut short his military service because of a back injury that needed surgery, and it’s that same injury that has returned with a vengeance. Lego revealed that he was training on set when suddenly felt his back spasm and then came the excruciating pain. Because of the injury, his scenes from now until the drama wraps will all be carefully orchestrated to minimize any stress on his lower back. He’ll be using acupuncture and heat packs to treat to temporarily treat the injury until the drama filming is done, hoping that he won’t need another surgery.

The return of Lego’s back pain has put a kibosh on his promise to ride shirtless with Jay Shih when the drama ratings broke 3, which happened with episode 12 though episode 13 ratings dipped back down since the concert episode.ย He apologized to all the fans of In a Good Way and explained that he and Jay were actually way more excited for the ratings to break 3 and they could fulfill the promise.ย The two of then had been planning out how to make it happen but sadly for us it’s now a pipe dream. Though considering the massive amounts of nekkid Lego fanservice in episode 1 alone (don’t lie and say you haven’t been rewatching the heck out of the dorm scenes between Jia En and Liu Chuan) we shouldn’t complain. I really am worried about Lego because a back injury can be debilitating and excruciatingly painful. This also begs the question of how Liu Chuan scenes will be filmed going forward. A lot of sitting down and just staring? Yeah, he’s the master of that. But I love Liu Chuan playing basketball but I don’t think we’ll see much more of that, nor will he be riding his motorcyle as much anymore. I’m soooo glad we got the motorcycle concert scene in episode 3 now. Sniffles, good times, good times.

  1. ๐Ÿ™ Well as much as I’d like to see Lego (and Jay) ride shirtless..and play basketball…and ride his motorcycle I’d rather him be nice and healthy (with maybe a broody jealous shower scene? XD). Hopefully his pain lessens and he doesn’t have to get more surgery. I’m sure the rest of his castmates will support him filming wise and keep him from thinking about the pain by distracting Lego with their antics and jokes.

    • i second that compromise. if theres not going to be backhugging, motorcycle riding then i want another shirtless scene. make it happen writer.

      i also wonder what this means for the movie because i’m sure they’d want him to rest and recover before jumping into another huge time commitment. or worse if he ends up having to get surgery.

  2. I really hope they let him take care of his injury and not push him too hard. I have to say that I have to get my mind away from ideas of restful bed scenes with Lego. (mind. out. of. gutter. please.)

  3. was hoping for a motorcycle scene when JE finally holds on to LC..but Lego’s health is much more important.and plus if it gets worse we my not see LC and thet might have him killed off..no no no..i guess they won’t have to give him too much scenes with extreme physical activities…JE-LC can hug, kiss and cuddle on the bed hahaha ok i need to stop lol

  4. So… I heard hot showers are good for back and muscle ailments.

    Maybe if Lego starts feeling pain while acting, he could just brood on set.

    Two birds, one stone.
