Okay, KBS f*#ked up so badly here I hope the television authorities throw the book at them. This past weekend’s new episode of weekend sageuk Taejong Lee Bang Won (King of Tears: Lee Bang Won) had a scene with Lee Seung Gye riding a horse and the horse throwing him. Viewers expressed grave discomfort and concern over the welfare of the horse after watching the scene as it did not appear to be a CGI horse and the way the horse hit the down was straight forward with its heard and shoulders striking the ground. That would be a catastrophic injury for a horse, similar to the way racing horses have to be put down after falling during a run. KBS was silent for three full days to these concerns and today admitted that the horse died a week after filming. It claimed all precautions were taken and the horse seemed fine after filming the scene and got up on its own. This is so so awful, as an animal lover the careless and callousness of the production team in ensuring it could safely film this scene with a real horse and then going “eh, it was an accident we did our best to be safe” afterwards has me fuming.
