Actor’s face suffers “severe deformation” after drone crash on a Netflix set

Drone crash on Netflix set causes 'serious disfigurement' on actor's face -  Canada Today

During a recent Netflix filming, a prominent Taiwanese actor suffered serious injuries when a camera drone struck him in the face. According to his management, Kai Ko had “severe disfigurement” and needed up to 30 stitches near his cheekbone as a result of his wounds.

Although the incident took place on December 27, it was only recently publicized. It happened during the production of the Mandarin-language fantasy series Agent from Above, which was created by the mm2 Asia and Good Films Production companies in Singapore and Taiwan.

Ko has not yet returned to the set because he is being given extra time to rest and recover, according to the show’s producers, who told Variety that the crew has resumed work. The producers were quick to emphasize in a statement that the crew was operating the camera-equipped drone in accordance with accepted safety protocols. The propeller blades of the drone were, they said, “shielded by a protective coating and there was no explosion or blades splitting as stated in some sources.”

We profoundly apologize that Kai’s cheeks were hurt in the mishap, the statement continued. Kai received medical care right away, and his talent management team also set up micro-stitching for him. To figure out how a drone shot could go so wrong, the production crew has started a thorough inquiry into the situation.

The usage of drones in TV and film productions for a variety of aerial and low-level views has increased recently thanks to advancements in drone technology. It will be crucial to determine how last month’s tragedy actually occurred because accidents like these are incredibly unusual during manufacturing.

Regarding the drone mishap, Netflix has not yet issued any public statements.

Ko is well-known in Taiwan. He rose to fame in the 2011 Asian blockbuster You Are the Apple of My Eye, a school drama.

  1. Jessica – thanks for your comment.It was actually 74 toursits who were killed; on my very first tour of Egypt in 1998, we were on TV a lot because we were the first sizable group to have visited Egypt following that awful event.There is a wonderful story in my spiritual travel memoir, , about a very brave guard in the Valley of the Kings who protected one of the tourists. But that was 15 years ago, and under a different regime. What I was addressing was the concerns now about traveling to Egypt post-revolution, and the media’s insistence that it is too dangerous for tourists to go, when violent crime against them is indeed almost unheard of today. Thank you again for taking the time to weigh in!Hi, Joshua.You seem to have grasped the principle behind GNH pretty well. But did you feel that the closer we get to development and modern amenities the further we may be pushing ourselves away from this goal? The villager who has no idea of modern comforts is far more happier when he does not know that such modern comforts exist and especially if his neighbour doesn’t have it flaunting it at him everyday…Just a thought and a simple comment. Thanks for the article.Keshav,Bhutan Rebirth Tours and Treks
