City of Paju recently announced that they will be taking legal measures against the CJ ENM Food Bless You producer who was recently confirmed for COVID-19.
According to Paju, the female producer, Ms. A (31) visited Boston in the States from March 6 to 18, but rather than self-isolating at her home in Seoul, she chose to stay at a relative’s building in Paju, only to be diagnosed with COVID-19 on March 28.
It’s been revealed that Ms. A began going to work as a junior producer of Food Bless You the very next day on March 19.
After getting their first new case in almost 20 days, Paju strongly criticized Ms. A and Food Bless You for her careless behavior.
As if traveling abroad during this time wasn’t enough, Ms. A didn’t self-isolate herself upon her return, and rather went to work, and that was irresponsible behavior of both Ms. A and the broadcasting company.
According to the report documenting her whereabouts, Ms. A took various buses and taxis to work and even visited multiple cafes, restaurants, and convenience stores located in Seoul.
As such, Paju expressed their strong disapproval and disappointment in Ms. A and Food Bless You and stressed that they will be taking legal action against the great anxiety they caused among the citizens.
Many citizens are anxious as a result. The city of Paju feels very shocked and disappointed. The fact that Ms. A visited public locations and took public transport after she noticed symptoms was very inappropriate behavior. We will be taking legal measures against them.
Following the diagnosis, the show announced a 2-week hiatus, and while all producers and staff went into self-isolation, and after being tested, cast members Park Na Rae and Jang Do Yeon confirmed that their results came back negative.
