Before there was Lee Young Ae, the top Korean actress who retired at her prime, there was Shim Eun Ha which is a name that no Korean over thirty years old wouldn’t have known. Shim Eun Ha was the top K-actress of the 90’s and starred in the highest rated dramas of that era including The Last Match, M, and Trap of Youth. She also did many hit overs, and over her decade long career she raked in countless drama and movie awards. What makes her legacy even more memorable is her sudden retirement in 2001 and then marrying her husband who is a congressman. Today K-ent was rocked with shocking news that Shim Eun Ha reportedly overdosed on sleeping pills and was rushed to the hospital. The media is postulating this as a suicide attempt but her family is claiming it was just an accident. She is currently in stable condition with no life threatening consequences. My heart goes out to Shim Eun Ha, whether it was intentional or accidental I hope she gets the recovery support she needs.
