Many dramas and more have had to temporarily suspend filming or other events due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The drama “River Where the Moon Rises” (literal title), which stars Kim So Hyun, Ji Soo, and more, has halted filming since November 19. A source from the drama stated on November 23 that a background actor (also known as an “extra”) who took part in filming for the drama has been tested for COVID-19.

Following the “River Where the Moon Rises” actor being tested for COVID-19, the upcoming OCN drama “The Uncanny Counter” (starring Jo Byeong Gyu, Gugudan’s Kim Sejeong, and more) postponed its online press conference that was scheduled on November 23, as the show films on a neighboring set and an epidemiological survey needed to be carried out.
