Previously, it was reported that the father of actress Ha Ji Won had suddenly passed away due to a sudden heart attack on January 2. According to an exclusive report by OSEN on January 4, more information was revealed about her father’s death by Ha Ji Won and her agency.
A lot of reps of the entertainment world were reported to have visited the Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital in order to relay their condolences to her and try to console her in her time of grief. On the first day of condolence calls, her former co-stars like Hyun Bin and Lee Seung Gi, Director Yoon Je Kyun, and more acquaintances came to the funeral hall. Just the other day, veteran actor Yoo Dong Geun came with Song Kyung Chul, Ha Jung Woo, Song Yoon Ah, and director Moon Hyun Sung.
Yoo Dong Geun was heard telling her, “Your father has, no doubt, gone to a good place.” According to OSEN, she had responded with, “My father was someone who would have lived even without eating.” She tried to be strong as she grasped her younger sibling Jun Tae Soo‘s hands, but tears fell down her face.
“Ten years ago, my father was told he had a myocardial infarction, so he had consistently taken medicine all that time,” she had stated. “Even just the day before yesterday, he said he felt stuffy inside, so he went to the hospital and he thought it was an acid reflux, but he suddenly collapsed, and within a few hours, he was unable to ever wake up again from a heart attack. I had never known that seeing him that day would have been the last.”

She said that her father was happier than anybody else when she became a class leader in elementary school and first showed her face in a drama after she yearned to become an actress. She is bitter at the world and sad that he is gone. Lastly, he was an affectionate father who watched over his children with laughs, never raising his voice at them.
“He was only 68 now, so I don’t know what the rush was for him to leave his family’s side so quickly,” she said. “I can’t believe this at all and I feel numb as if it’s all a dream.”
Despite her grief, she went around the tables to her friends who visited, thanking them for coming. On January 5, her father’s coffin will be borne out and he will be laid to rest at his hometown.
A rep of hers stated on January 4, “Ha Ji Won is currently a chief mourner, so she is greeting guests on a daily basis.” As for her future activities, the rep stated, “Ha Ji Won was active in the last year of 2015 with no time for rest. Now, because her production has come to an end, Ha Ji Won has no other plans.”
Get plenty of rest and take as much time as you need to mourn your loss, may he rest in peace.
