K-drama fans around the world are saddened by South Korean actress Song Yoo-sudden jung’s death. News broke on January 25 that, on January 23, the 26-year-old actress had died. That news was confirmed by her agency, Sublime Artist.
With the 2013 sitcom, Golden Rainbow, Song Yoo-jung made her acting debut. Unlike Kim Yoo-jung and Jung Il-woo, she played one of the teenage leads, delivering some really emotional scenes during the drama. In another series, Make a Wish, she gained audience attention for her performance (2014).
In her short career, with her K-drama roles and music video appearances, Song Yoo-jung managed to gain popularity. Her last TV appearance was in 2017, airing the same year at KBS School. With this instalment starring Kim Se-jeong and Kim Jung-hyun, the drama was part of the well-loved school franchise.
A popular web series in 2019, Dear My Name, featured a song. She was playing with a high school student looking for her soulmate. The drama is based on the assumption that (almost) everyone has on their body a “tattoo” of the name of their soul mate, which sparkles when you meet the person in question.
Most recently, Song appeared in 2020 as the female lead in the music video for Nive’s How Do I. In her career, she appeared in a bunch of commercials as well.
