Super Junior’s Kyuhyun bravely stepped in harm’s way to protect his fellow cast members during a shocking incident backstage.
In a bizarre turn of events, a woman in her 30s wielding a knife stormed into the dressing room of the musical Ben-Hur in Magok-dong, Gangseo-gu, western Seoul. The incident unfolded around 6 pm on Sunday, leaving Kyuhyun with minor injuries as he heroically intervened to restrain the assailant.
According to reports from Kyuhyun’s agency, Antenna, the courageous singer was not the intended target, but he suffered wounds while attempting to disarm and subdue the intruder. The woman was swiftly apprehended by the police on charges of special intimidation, though investigations reveal that Kyuhyun was not the primary focus of the attack.
This unexpected turn of events transpired after the woman, with no prior connection to the actors, attended the musical and later invaded the dressing room. Kyuhyun, present to greet his fellow cast members, found himself in the midst of a harrowing situation as he intervened to protect his colleagues.
Thankfully, Kyuhyun’s injuries were minor, and no other casualties were reported. The police are delving into the assailant’s psychiatric history and the details of how she acquired the weapon to piece together the motive behind this alarming incident.
