Actor Park Seo-joon, who injured his neck while shooting TV drama “Hwarang: The Beginning,” will resume filming Wednesday, local news reported Monday.

Last week, Park hurt himself while shooting an action scene for the show. He went to a hospital in Seoul for a further checkup. The injury was not too severe so he didn’t have to stay at a hospital for long. However, the doctors recommended he rest until fully recovering.

Now he is feeling much better and will be able to participate in the production.

Periodic drama “Hwarang,” set in the ancient Silla Kingdom (57 B.C.-935), centers around young elite warriors of the kingdom, known as “hwarang.”

In the TV drama, Park takes on the male lead role of hwarang Sunwoo Rang, while singer and actor Park Hyung-sik of ZE:A plays Sam Maek-jong, who later becomes King Jinheung.

Actress Go A-ra will play lead female character who steals the hearts of both men.

The preproduced series will go on air sometime in the second half of this year.
