There’s good news to report on Moon Geun Young‘s recent medical scare, with a frightening worst case scenario element to it. Moon Geun Young has undergone her third surgery on her arm for compartment syndrome, with the remaining performances for the stage production of Romeo and Juliet now fully cancelled. Her agency confirms that she is in recovery but the situation was so severe that her inured arm could have been amputated had she not gotten surgery just in time. Compartment Syndrome is when there is severe internal bleeding and swelling to the tissues after a sudden injury, and if not treated swiftly could cause permanent tissue and nerve damage. I’m so relieved Moon Geun Young is in recovery and praying there are no lasting repercussions.
Other than the Romeo and Juliet performances, Moon Geun Young did not have anything else on her upcoming schedule whether drama or movie. This medical recovery will likely mean we won’t see her anytime soon in a new project but that’s fine, health is always the highest priority.
