It’s clear for all to see now: this is the 25th month of 2020, not the first of 2022.
In addition to all the lives it has taken away with COVID-19, the interminable 2020 has also claimed the lives of many beloved celebs.
In the Korean entertainment industry alone, two young actresses have passed away in the past two years; first, it was Oh In-Hye, 36, in Sep 2020, followed by Song Yoo-Jung, who died at the age of just 26 last Jan.
One year has passed, but it seems that nothing has changed.
Rising South Korea Actress Kim Mi-soo Dies at Age 29
South Korean actress Kim Mi-soo died suddenly and unexpectedly yesterday (5 Jan), at the age of 29.
The cause of her death has not been disclosed, and her agency, Landscape Entertainment, has urged the public not to speculate.
The agency confirmed her passing yesterday, saying, “Kim suddenly left us on Jan 5.
“The bereaved are deep in their sorrow at the sudden sadness. Please refrain from reporting false rumours or speculation so that the family can mourn in peace.”
Reports indicate that her funeral will be held at a funeral hall in the Nowon district of Seoul.
Due to the Korean age calculation—which is always one or two years more than one’s international age—the K-drama actress’ age at death has also been reported as 30 and 31.
A Budding Star
Those unacquainted with Kim may have unknowingly seen her in the Netflix series Hellbound, which snatched the number 1 spot on the platform’s most-watched series from Squid Game. Kim played one of the cult’s deacons.
More recently, the 29-year-old played a student activist named Yeo Jeong-min in Snowdrop, a South Korean romance series currently streaming on Disney+. It also stars Blackpink singer Jisoo and actor Jung Hae-in.
Though she was young and had a short career and even short filmography, Kim has left behind an indelible mark with some of her performances, including her roles in Lipstick Revolution and Kyungmi’s World, as well as in the comedy series Hi Bye, Mama!. She had also starred in The School Nurse Files, another Netflix series.
Prior to Mi-Soo’s death, seven out of 16 episodes of Snowdrop had been broadcast. Filming had already concluded since Snowdrop was a pre-produced series.
Unbeknownst to some, Kim had been cast in an undisclosed role in Disney+’s original drama Kiss Six Sense, which had started filming and was set to air in the first half of 2022.
