Lee Dong Gun returns to Korea. He flew from Sydney and arrived at 6PM. He was carrying his brother’s ashes in an urn wrapped in white silk. Witnesses have noted the tears in his eyes. They will bring the ashes directly to Samsung Seoul Hospital Mortuary in Gangnam-gu. The funeral will be held on Monday, the 31st.
I’ve been following this story because I’m a fan.
March 29, 12:37 AM UPDATE: After the taping of Han Ji Hye’s KBS drama, she went to the funeral at 11:30 PM. She wore a black sweater and used the back door, evading the media. She met and condoled Lee Dong Gun.
UPDATE: More videos of the funeral.
UPDATE March 31: News and pictures of the funeral in Korea(n).
Even though it is not unique to Korea, I do not like the publicity his mourning is getting. It was nice of Han Ji Hye to visit him discreetly. That was a really nice gesture.
Yeah i agree with AzureWolf, it was nice to see Han Ji-hye there.
There’s a pic of her at the funeral here: http://k-popped.com/2008/03/han-ji-hye-shows-support-for-lee-dong.html
