Celebrities pay respects to the late Kim Joo Hyuk

Several Korean celebrities paid respects to the late Kim Joo Hyuk and attended his wake at the Asan Medical Center in Seoul yesterday (Oct 31). It was a very emotional scene which saw many breaking down as they could not hold back their tears.

The late actor’s girlfriend, actress Lee Yoo Young, appeared to still be in shock and disbelief as she was captured walking into the wake with her face lowered and her hands over her mouth. It was said that she was initially in the midst of shooting an episode of the reality show Running Man in Busan but halted the filming and immediately headed to Seoul upon hearing the news of her boyfriend’s passing.

Yoo Young and Joo Hyuk started publicly dating in December of 2016 after meeting on the set of the drama, Yourself and Yours. Just last month, Joo Hyuk had mentioned in an interview that he was thinking about marrying her and them wanting a daughter.

His good friend and co-star of his programme, 2 Days 1 Night, Defconn, could also be seen sobbing heavily even before entering the venue. Fellow cast members such as Kim Jong Min, Cha Tae Hyun and Yoon Shi Yoon also could not contain their tears and were seen crying during the ceremony.

Other celebrities present included Running Man members such as Yoo Jae Suk, Song Ji Hyo, Kim Jong Kook and Lee Kwang Soo. His various good friends in the industry that also attended included Kwon Sang Woo, Choi Min Sik, Jang Keun Suk and Jung Hae In, to list a few.

The 45-year-old actor passed away two days, on Oct 30 after being involved in a car accident. He was previously said to have suffered from a heart attack but recent reports have now clarified that his cause of death was due to fatal head injuries.

Joo Hyuk’s funeral will take place on Thursday, Nov 2 and it has been rumoured that a separate mortuary will be established for fans and the general public to pay their respects.
