What is going on with all these injuries?
It was reported that Park Jung Min injured his knee during his performance in the Korean's musical version Grease. He further injured his knee during his performance for KBS SS501 Super Special on February 27, 2009. Credit: http://marinastory.wordpress.com.
Recently Kim Hyun Joong was in car accident while heading to a filming site for Boys Over Flower. Days later he reported that he is suffering from lower back pains may be from the accident. This caused DSP to rearrange his schedule so he can have one month rest after the filming of Boys Over Flower. Credit: http://www.boysbeforeflowers.com & http://popseoul.com.
I am wondering if a lot of it is pressure from DSP Entertainment (SS501's management group) to perform or fulfill contract agreements. Or is this just a fluke because Kim Bum was in two car accidents and Koo Hye Sun was in one serious car accident during the filming of Boys Over Flower.

I know in some countries actors and singers are more of a job where the management company is your boss. In the US, a lot of the actors/singers are their own bosses. They pick and choose what they want to do. They hire a management team and not the other way around. Well now that I think about it, I think in any country when you are new to the entertainment industry there is a lot of pressure. There is a lot of work because you need to promote yourself or your image. I guess if you are already famous in the entertainment industry you become your own boss because Korean actors like Jang Dong Gun and Rain seem like their own bosses.
Whatever it is, I hope everyone recovers and that there are no more accidents. Best to everyone's health.
