Three Best Actor Winners Namgoong Min, Lee Jung Jae, and Kim Nam Gil All Get COVID-19 the Same Week Due to Busy Schedules with Awards, Festivals, and Premieres

Also testing positive is Kim Nam Gil upon return to SK from attending the Toronto International Film Festival. And last but not least is Namgoong Min who didn’t go abroad as he’s been filming One Dollar Lawyer but tested positive the day of the drama’s press conference ahead of this weekend’s premiere so the press conference was scrapped.
