I hate to be the bearer of bad news but real life doesn’t always imitate fiction and sometimes even exceeds it in ways impossible to prepare for. 2016 was looking rosy for A-list Korean actress Ha Ji Won, but before she could even take the first steps into the new year with her entertainment career, her real life delivered a shocking and devastating blow when her father unexpectedly passed away. Most stars keep their personal lives completely private but Ha Ji Won and her actor younger brother Jeon Tae Soo are one of those acting sibling duos that gets the public’s interest up so two years ago the entire Jeon family posed for a pictorial in The Celebrity magazine. The pictorial naturally garnered widespread interest and positive feedback for such a beautiful family that exuded warmth and affection, so it’s truly sad moment to have to share the news that the Jeon family patriarch passed away in early January from a sudden heart attack. My condolences to Ha Ji Won and her family and friends during this sad and difficult time.
