In her post, Park highlights that she was rushed to three different foreign hospitals, and spent a week in the ICU where medical professionals performed countless scans and tests. The Joy Ride star said that she hesitated to share about her health scare on social media because she is still recovering from the trauma. Although what Park went through was all scary and confusing for her, she was not alone.
“I love you all. I’m healing and I promise I’m gonna be okay.”
The Beef star expressed gratitude and love for her co-star and friend off-screen, Paul Forman, who plays Nicola de Leon on Emily in Paris. Together the two play boyfriend and girlfriend on the Emmy-nominated comedy series after Benoit breaks up with Mindy because of jealousy of the relationship between her and Nicolas. The chemistry on screen between Forman and Park has sparked dating rumors, as the two held hands at The Hollywood Reporter’s Beauty Dinner in October.
Paul Forman also made a post on his Instagram about being by his on-screen girlfriend’s side.
One thing is for sure we are all relieved that the actor is not only healing and on the road to recovery, but we are very happy to know that “Nacho” never left her side (if you know you know).
“I love you Paul. More than I can ever say.”
