CINEMA: The 29-year-old Disney star Kim Mi-soo who starred in Snowdrop has passed away suddenly.

In a state­ment released by her agency Land­scape, she said her loved ones were “at the bot­tom of their grief” because of her sud­den dis­ap­pear­ance.
“Kim sud­den­ly left us on Jan­u­ary 5,” read the Wednes­day Jan­u­ary 5 statement.

“The bereaved are gripped by grief in the face of this sud­den sadness.

“Please refrain from report­ing any false rumors or spec­u­la­tions so that the fam­i­ly can mourn in peace.”

The state­ment, obtained by Vari­ety, was trans­lat­ed from Kore­an, with no cause of death given.

In the South Kore­an tele­vi­sion series Snow­drop, Kim played the role of a fourth-year stu­dent and activist named Yeo Jung-min, who shared a dor­mi­to­ry with Eun Young-ro, one of the pro­tag­o­nists played by the singer of K ‑pop Jisoo.

While the series airs on the JTBC net­work in Korea, it is avail­able to watch on Dis­ney Plus as an orig­i­nal pro­gram on the stream­ing platform.

The sto­ry is set in 1987, a few months after the June 1987 democ­ra­cy move­ment in South Korea.

Kim had pre­vi­ous­ly appeared in series such as Hi Bye, Mama !, Into the Ring and The School Nurse Files, as well as in films Lip­stick Rev­o­lu­tion and Kyung­mi’s World.

Pri­or to the actress’ death, sev­en episodes of Snow­drop had aired, with nine more episodes remain­ing in the season.

She had recent­ly start­ed film­ing the Dis­ney Plus dra­ma Kiss Six Sense, with South Kore­an online plat­form Naver report­ing that film­ing had been can­celed fol­low­ing her death.
