“Kim suddenly left us on Jan. 5,” her company Landscape mentioned in an announcement on Wednesday. “The bereaved are deep in their sorrow at the sudden sadness. Please refrain from reporting false rumors or speculation so that the family can mourn in peace.” The company assertion was translated by Joongang Daily and gave no reason behind loss of life.

In “Snowdrop,” Kim (additionally written Kim Misu) performs a pupil activist who shares a girls’s dormitory with protagonist Young-ro, portrayed by Jisoo of Ok-pop group Blackpink.
Local media present Kim with credit together with two 2019 films “Memories” and “Kyungmi’s World,” and JTBC’s drama sequence “Human Luwak,” “Hi Bye, Mama!” from tvN and “Into the Ring” (2020) on KBS.
Kim was born on March 16, 1992. But Korean media report her age as 30 and 31 as a result of completely different strategies of calculation.
“Snowdrop” is a romantic melodrama, set towards the backdrop of the 1987 pro-democracy motion. The sequence has sparked fierce controversy over its historic accuracy, selection of songs and depiction of North Koreans. Sponsors had been reported to have pulled their help and a petition to South Korea’s president was launched, reportedly gathering over 300,000 signatures. The flap initially had a unfavourable influence on the shares of J Contentree and Blackpink company YG Entertainment.
