Korean Actor LEE EON dead at age 27

LEE EON (Park Sang-min) 1981 - 2008

27-year-old Korean actor, Lee Eon died in a motorcycle accident on his way home from a wrap-up party that celebrated his upcoming KBS drama, "Choi Kang Chil-woo" ("Mighty Chil-woo").

Reports say the accident occurred around 2 a.m., and that his bike hit a guard-rail on an incline. It is also stated that he died on impact, but that he was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead at around dawn on Thursday morning.

EON will probably always be remembered most for his lovable role as a muscular dork in the wildly popular MBC drama, Coffee Prince.

This was the first and only drama that I ever saw EON in, but he has acted in others, including: Who Are You - Drama (Drama - 2008) - 누구세요?, When Spring Comes - Drama (Drama - 2007) - 꽃피는 봄이 오면, and Like A Virgin (2006) - 천하장사 마돈나.

When I saw him in Coffee Prince, I was taken aback by his innate charm. His eyes and stature were impressive, and whenever I see beauty, I go online to search for and download the images of any & all gorgeous men. EON was gorgeous, and it's too bad that something this awful had to happen.

EON was a beautiful, young man with great promise, and it's always sad when something as unexpected as this occurs. Fellow actor and close friend, Gong Yoo is probably not the only person to grieve so expressly over the loss of a comrade, but as expected, it's the living that must learn how to cope with loss.

God willing, he is in a better place now, and his legacy is immortalized on disc, which is a good thing.
