It’s only the first month into 2021 and there have been so many deaths in recent days. Sadly, 2 Korean stars – actress Song Yoo Jung (송유정) and also rapper Iron (아이언) – were announced dead today.
According to an exclusive report from Maeil Kyungjae, Yoo Jung had passed away on 23rd January (Saturday). She was only 26 years old.
For those wondering, Yoo Jung made her acting debut with the K-drama “Golden Rainbow” back in 2013. She also acted in the popular TV series “School 2017” and even appeared in iKON’s’ music video for their 2018 hit song “Goodbye Road”.
Following the reports of her sudden passing, fans have since shifted their attention to Yoo Jung’s final Instagram update. She was pictured smiling brightly while looking at the camera. The comments section has been flooded with netizens sharing their prayers and condolences.
Take a look at her post below:
So far, the real cause of Yoo Jung’s untimely death has not been disclosed. Despite that, her funeral had been set up in the Gangnam Seoul Medical Center earlier today (Monday, 25th January).
In another shocking news, it was reported that Iron (real name Jung Hun Cheol) was found dead outside his apartment. According to police reports, the “Show Me The Money” winner was discovered unconscious and bleeding on a flower bed by a security guard at around 10:25am (9:25am Malaysian time). He was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
The 29-year-old hip-hop star made headlines last month after he was charged for physically assaulting a teenager with a baseball bat. Previously, the “Puss” jam-maker was also sentenced to prison for assaulting his ex-girlfriend back in 2017.
This is truly devastating. May the two Hallyu stars rest in peace.
