Although the location shoot in New Caledonia was difficult, what shocked Lee Min-ho the most during the filming of "Boys Over Flowers" was the car accident.
"I didn't have a driver's license but I had to shoot a driving scene. So I got my license in a rush and drove the car on a provisional license. And the car I was driving in the scene was a Lotus GP3." That is when last January, Lee Min-ho ended up crashing into a guard rail while shooting the driving scene for the show.
During the filming of "Boys Over Flowers", other main actors also often got into car accidents. Kim Hyun-joong, Kim Joon, Kim Bum and Ku Hye-sun were all involved in car accidents and when Ku was hospitalized for four days, the producers delayed airing of the series by a week and showed a special feature episode instead.
"I think all the car accidents happened because everyone was busy and exhausted from the shootings. Seriously, it was hard to get even one hour of sleep so we would be dozing off whenever we got the chance."
