Friends and family of actor Lee Ji Han (24), who passed away during the Itaewon tragedy, announced that he was buried on November 1. Actress Im Soo Hyang, who worked with Lee, posted a message online, grieving the loss of a friend and colleague.


Ji Han, I hope you will be happy as you have gone to a good place. Yesterday, we were supposed to be filming together all day, but after hearing the news, all of us gathered at your mortuary and didn’t say anything for a while and just sat in despair. I know very well just how hard you worked and how much you wanted to do well, and I’m just so frustrated and sad that they took you so quickly.

I cried for a long time at the regret of not saying something more, a word of support, and for not taking care of you after hearing that you would go home and tell your parents that you received a compliment from me. The whole team thinks of you and will work even harder for you. I hope you are at peace now.

To all the people who became stars through this tragedy, may you all rest in peace.

— Im Soo Hyang
