The incident, which came to media attention Tuesday, took place Sunday at a restaurant located in Dogok-dong, Gangnam-gu.
Yang was having dinner with his company officials when an elderly diner at a table next to him began choking. Her son attempted to perform the Heimlich but failed to help her. That was when Yang stepped up and tried what he learned. The choking woman was soon able to breathe again.
“The old woman and her family have been our regulars for more than a decade. It was very touching that Yang stepped forward and skillfully carried out first-aid,” restaurant manager Nam Myung-ja said.
On the issue, Yang declined to make any public statement, his agency Line Entertainment said.
Having debuted in 2003, the comedian currently stars in variety shows including MBC’s “Omniscient Interfering View,” “Save Me! Holmes” and the above-mentioned “Master in the House.”
