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.

I can't believe it. Just a few minutes ago I was watching Coffe Prince online, and thinking how absolutely adorable he is in that show, and how much potential he las. It's hard to accept that he's just .. gone. There will be no more dramas in which we will see him, and Coffee Prince will never be the same after reading this news.
Please R.I.P, Lee Eon will not be forgotten !

you're not the last one in the world to know.. I just found it out today!! T.T

I was rewatching Coffee Prince these past week, coz I only saw it in our local TV dubbed in our language when I was in college. I want to watch it in Korean language. And I was hooked again with this awesome show.. I love the OTP and the princes. Now I'm shocked and quite devastated that the adorable big teddy bear Min Yeob aka Lee Eon is already dead a decade ago.. No wonder, I haven't seen him again in anything after Coffee Prince.. 😭

I just finished Coffee Prince and read about this in a comment. I couldn't really believe it, but google sadly confirmed it for me.
I'm honestly shocked, having just watched several hours of his acting over these past few days.
Such a lovable actor.
Rest in peace

I can't believe it! I just finished watching the drama Coffee Prince and someone commented "R.I.P. Min Yeop, you were a great actor" but I didn't think anything of it because I was so into the last episode and then when I started reading all the comments- I realized!
I couldn't believe it and I still can't. I loved Lee Eons character on Coffee Prince. He just seems so loveable... this is really sad. Recently I'm running into dramas where I hear a character in there passes away. Depressing, really. Gosh....
I guess this makes me realize that one moment you couldn't living your life and the next you could be gone. . .
I hope you're well off Lee Eon. Love && Peace. <3

Lee Eon. I live in the USA and only just learned Korean so I began to watch Korean shows and movies. I am sorry this is so late, but I want you to know that you are not forgotten and all of your fans love and miss you. Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

I now that it's just a technical error and the differing time zones had an effect is this, but when you know that he died August twenty-FIRST 2008, it's weird to see that people were talking about his death a day before it happened. Even though I know there is a logical explanation, it gave me the creeps at first.
