An explosion at LG Display's OLED TV factory in Paju killed two employees and injured four others (which are currently recovering). The explosion was caused by a Nitrogen gas leak, and LGD does not know the cause of the leak yet.

South Korea's labor ministry has ordered LGD to halt the operation in the production line while the investigation of the cause of the accident continues. LG Display offered an apology to the victims. This a tragic incident and we send our condolences to the families of those employees.

Back in 2012 a large explosion broke out at LG Chem's OLED production factory in Heungdeok District in Cheongju, North Chungcheong, Korea on August 24. One employee was killed and 14 others were injured.
