Lee Min Ho, Kim Hee Sun, and Cast of ‘Faith’ Pay Respect to Fallen Producer
With the sudden passing of producer Kim Jong Hak, many stars who worked with the director rushed to pay their respects, including the cast of his last project, SBS’ Faith.
Through a blog post by writer Song Ji Na, who worked on several projects with Kim Jong Hak, it was revealed that both Kim Hee Sun and Lee Min Ho came to visit the director.
“In the midst of talking about old stories with the actors that I worked with a long time ago, my heart especially hurt because of the actors of Faith,” wrote Song Ji Na. “Hee Sun, who came with a pale face after two long recordings, Min Ho, who hurriedly got on a plane and flew overnight, Duk Hwan, who sat under the dark shadows, or Sae Young, who burst in tears – don’t sit in the corner like that.”
Song Ji Na especially mentioned that the cast felt guilty as they believed the producer was pressured after he was charged for breach of duty, embezzlement and fraud when failing to pay the actors of Faith.
Song Ji Na made it clear in her entry that Kim Hee Sun couldn’t stop crying because the actors filed a complaint to the production company and not the director.
Kim Jong Hak was found dead at a gositel on July 23. His death is assumed to be a suicide.
