Park Yong Ha, Please Rest in Peace

On June 30, we have lost an excellent Korean actor and singer, Park Yong Ha. It was said that he was found dead at home and reports said that it was due to suicide impulses.

Gongjunim was really affected by the shocked news and cannot believe it. Park Yong Ha was an outstanding actor and singer who I look upon to. Always.

And now, the sudden blow of this unfateful news shattered everything. No amount of tears can measure the pain of loss.

May Park Yong Ha rest in peace and be blessed always in the faraway land.

I will miss you and will treasure the album which you once hand autographed for me.

Your smile will always be kept in our hearts.

Goodbye and I salute to you.
