RIP Lee Eon

My classmates (in our table) and I talked about Lee Yeon’s death that happened at 1:30 AM on August 21st. He was driving a motorcycle when he hit the guardrail of an overpass in Seoul’s Hannam-dong area. He was in Eric Mun’s drama, “Chil-woo”, which ended last Tuesday night. He became well-known for his role as the suitor of Yoon Eun Hye’s sister in the TV drama “1st Shop of Coffee Prince.”

Lee Eon (이언), whose real name is Park Sang Min (박상민), was born on February 5, 1981 and died August 21, 2008. He was 28 years old (Korean age). He was a model, an actor and a DJ. He debuted in the 2006 film “Like a Virgin” (천하장사 마돈나). He was also an achiever in Korean traditional wrestling.

    This is so sad. I saw his interview for his role in the “Coffee Prince,” where the director (or was it the producer?) said that he had won the part less than 5 minutes into the interview. And I find him really funny in that Kdrama. Sigh.

    It’s a shame that such a great Actor life has to end in this way. A close friend of mine also died at a young age (23) by a car accident. This post is a reminder on how hard life can be. R.i.p Park Sang Min.

    Sigh! It’s a shame that unfortunate things like this happen in this world. Lee was one of my favorite actors. A real fun guy and his acting is by far one of the best I’ve seen. Really unfortunate that such a talented and young person has to leave this world on such tragic circumstances. RIP Lee. You will always be with us in our minds.

    This is why I’m scared to ride in cars or motorcycles. What a horrible way to die for a man who has lead a successful and exemplary life. RIP Mr. Eon.
