The cast worn by Song Joong-ki in the drama series “Descendants of the Sun” turned out to be due to the actor’s real-life injury.

Song Joong-ki was injured during while filming for the drama, reports The Korea Herald.

The injury left him with a fracture on his right arm along with a cruciate ligament rupture which needed eight weeks of recovery.

In the 13th episode of the drama aired last Wednesday, Yoo Shi-jin was severely wounded from a gunshot and is hospitalized.

Even after being discharged from the hospital, Yoo continued to wear a cast on his right arm.

The cast may have simply looked like a prop used to make the drama seem more realistic.

However, it was actually a real-life cast of the actor.

Reportedly, Song returned to the filming scene in only two weeks, managing to complete the 15th and 16th episodes of the drama on time.
