Coffee Prince Character, Lee Eon, Died at age 27

Post by kathyro on Wed Aug 20, 2008 6:33 pm




ON August 21, 2008
the coffee prince character that like eun hye's younger sister on the show
has died due to a motorcycle accident

Lee Eon has died



[Edit by soyboy - this article is also on the blog]

Up and coming actor Lee Eon passed away in a motorcycle accident early this morning on August 21. He was coming back from a wrap-up party for his recent drama Strongest Chilwoo when he crashed into a guard rail. He was not breathing when the police found him at the scene and was rushed to the hospital. However, the doctors were not able to resuscitate him. According to police reports, the accident occurred when Lee Eon was attempting to change lanes and the road changed from 2 lanes to 1.





Lee Eon debuted as a model in 2006 and also featured in Rain’s “It’s Raining” music video. However, Eon shot to fame in 2007 when he played the macho, idiosycratic, lovable character Min Yub in the MBC drama “Coffee Prince.” He then took a role in the drama “Who Are You?” and had just finished filming “Strongest Chilwoo” two days ago.

Lee Eon had moved from Busan to Seoul to start his modeling career. He lived alone and was not able to see his parents often. He is the only child and the news of his death has caused a great shock to his parents in Busan, who immediately left for Seoul when they heard the news.

When the “Strongest Chilwoo” team, including Goo Hye Sun and Eric, heard of this tragedy, they also rushed to the hospital. Lee Eon had been celebrating the end of the drama with his co-stars just a few hours ago. Coffee Prince co-star Yoon Eun Hye also came to the hospital.



Coffee Prince co-star Kim Jae Wook hides his grief with his long hair. He was the first to arrive at Lee Eon's mortuary



Rest in peace, Lee Eon. May his friends and family be comforted. He was truly one of Korea’s most promising actors. I absolutely loved him in Coffee Prince - he was so adorable! He possessed a unique charm and charisma on screen that I will miss dearly.



2008 has been a hard year with the death of many celebrities, including Monday Kiz’s Kim Min Soo (23) and and Lee Sung Hoon (Turtle Man) from the group Turtle. Kim Min Soo also died in a motorcycle accident. Singer LeeRa, an aspiring young rookie, also died in her sleep and was only 24.



Netizens are in utter shock and disbelief. Some are noting the eerie similarity of Lee Eon’s death to that of Monday Kiz Kim Min Soo. Fans of Lee Eon also pointed out that he left a message on his minihompy on July 15 saying “It’s too early to die.” After reading this coincidental note, many fans left messages on his minihompy saying “The message above is pitiful” “Oh no, I hope he goes to a better place. I can’t believe it.” More that 40,000 fans visited Lee Eon's minihompy to leave their condolences.

I also read the news just now on dramabeans.com
I am dumbfound ....
really
shocked.
I have no idea what to say to this.
his lively, fresh, young image contrasts very powerfully to this devastating news.
It almost doesn't make sense ...
Really... omg ... this is so sad ... I can't even find the words to express the total shock I got
RIP
my thoughts go out to his family, friends and loved ones.

P.S.: only 27... he was so young ......

Here is the full article from www.dramabeans.com
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.

Lee Eon... dead!?

I'm so shocked I cant even imagine no longer living! I'm practically speechless and I feel like crying... even if I have only seen him in two shows, I was looking forward to so much of his work...

I never saw him but looking at his photos now he seemed to be an actor with a big future...unfortunately it didn't turn out that way.

Honestly, it's freaky. There has been so many Korean celebrity deaths since what, march? I don't know!
But how can FOUR deaths in 8 months be normal? And most of them, actually ALL, are below the normal life expectancy. There's that girl, the 24 one, and this Lee Eon and the other two..

Crazy stuff.
