Lee Eon dies in a motorcycle accident
It’s always sad when a young talent dies, and when they die so suddenly and without warning … well, fans just aren’t prepared.
According to The Korea Times, Lee died on the way home after a wrap up party of his latest show, Mighty Chil-woo, yesterday at dawn: “He was riding his motorcycle when he hit a railing of the elevated roadway in Hannam-dong, Yongsan at around 2 a.m. The 27-year old actor died on the spot and was taken to Soonchunhyang University Hospital in Hannam-dong, Seoul. The police have not yet determined if Lee was drunk when he got into the motorcycle accident.”
I’m just starting to get into Korean dramas, so I don’t really know who Lee Eon is, but I was about to pick up the DVD he starred in: Coffee Prince, which is supposed to be really funny. He was the “dim-witted but loveable Min-yeop”.
