Actor Park Min Woo‘s father made an appearance on a Christian based broadcast, A Very Special Praise back in May of this year to talk about the actor’s motorcycle accident that happened 3 years ago.
Back in March of 2018, Park Min Woo suffered serious injuries while he was riding his motorcycle near the Dongho Bridge in Seoul. It was reported by SPOTV News that the accident happened while the actor was on leave from his military service, where he was serving as an active social service worker.
At the time of the accident, Park Min Woo suffered a serious head injury, for which he underwent immediate surgery. And while his condition has improved since, the actor’s father spoke on Park Min Woo’s behalf during his time on CTS‘s A Very Special Praise, stating that he is receiving “home care due to his body’s physical ailments.”
It was following the actor’s father’s comment that a photo of Park Min Woo was revealed to the public. In the picture, the actor can be seen sitting in a motorized wheelchair, which he relies on to move around. It was further reported that while he is able to stand up with the help of others, Park Min Woo is currently unable to walk.
Park Min Woo’s motorcycle accident initially made some headlines at the time of its occurrence, but it did not gain the attention of major broadcast stations. With the current updates about the actor and his father’s appearance on A Very Special Praise, many netizens began to pour out their heartbreak about the situation. Hundreds of netizens have shared their support for the actor, providing Park Min Woo with encouraging words during his ongoing rehabilitation process.
