Traffic Accident Claims Like of Beloved Actor
Media reports suggest that the actor may have experienced cardiac arrest while driving down a road in the Gangnam neighborhood. Losing control of his vehicle, KIM swerved into a car in another lane before driving into an apartment complex. His vehicle then overturned as it fell over a staircase. Rescue personnel retrieved KIM from his car just after 5pm and brought him to the Konkuk University Medical Center but were unable to revive him. The actor was pronounced dead at 6:30pm.
Prior to his death, the actor completed filming for the period drama Heungbu and the Korean Drug War remake, both of which will be released next year.
