Lee Eon dies in accident

Oh, man.

Model-turned-actor Lee Eon (also spelled Lee Un, most famously of Coffee Prince) has died in a motorcycle accident.

The 27-year-old, born Park Sang-min, was on his way home following the wrap party for KBS’s Strongest Chil Woo early on the morning of August 21. He was riding a motorcycle and ran into the guardrail of the overpass, and is said to have died almost immediately.

The news has shocked everyone; online, netizens are abuzz in disbelief. Just the night before, he had been onscreen in Chil Woo‘s finale episode, and the sudden news is, to say the least, startling.

Lee Eon got his start modeling, but shot to mainstream levels of fame when he took on the role of simple-hearted but lovable Min Yub in last year’s Coffee Prince. He followed that with a stint as a cable-TV MC, then returned to dramas with Who Are You? and, most recently, Strongest Chil Woo.

RIP.

OMG. Are you serious?

I mean...he was JUST in Chil Woo....He was just here...and then, gone the next.

What a shocking and tragic way to die. Such a young, talented guy......

May he rest in peace, and, quite frankly, at least he became famous at what he did before he died. Surely that's some condolence. Though now we can never see what else he could've done...

How sad! After watching the finale of Strongest Chil Woo, I was looking forward to seeing his next project.

And, from some interviews that I saw, I will always remember him as being a down-to-earth person and someone that was having a good life.

R.I.P.

I was just SO shocked when I saw this. Even more shocked because I just saw a picture with him, ShinYoung, Jessica, and Tiffany on their latest appearance to SST!

God, he played my absolute dream boy in Coffee Prince and I always remembered him since. I absolutely fell in love with Min Yeop and thought he played his role really well. I enjoyed watching him on Shim Shim Tapa with ShinYoung too :(

Ever since Coffee Prince, his modeling AND acting career had been picking up/doing really well. It's so unfortunate but may he rest in peace <3

i feel sad...RIP to this actor.
i noticed in Korea that their celebrities are attending(every year) either a wedding or a funeral...

i think these actors should hail a cab in order for them to reach their houses safe...
they, being sleep deprived and perhaps intoxicated, are prone to accident.

I'm very sad to hear this. And I am in total disbelief. Because he's an amazing actor. And he was not only young but he was a rising star. Just last week I was watching Coffee Prince and I was laughing when he went to pick up Angel at the park because she finally is willing to date him. And I saw him in Who Are You? and In Strongest Chil Woo. I'm very sad I wont be seeing his smile. We've lost a very good actor and great person today. =*( He surely will be missed. And may he RIP. and my condolences go out to his family and friends.
