Kim Joo Hyuk Suffered Fatal Head Trauma in Car Accident and Funeral Scheduled for Nov 2nd

The details are trickling out about actor Kim Joo Hyuk‘s fatal car accident on Monday October 30th, cutting his life short at a much too young age of 45 years old. There were reports that he suffered a heart attack while driving but the hospital performed and autopsy with the results being head trauma as the cause of death. Further toxicology reports will take multiple weeks but the family has prepared his wake for the time being so his friends and family can pay their respects. His funeral is schedule for November 2nd and will surely be a tear filled and hopefully memorial affair of the life of a very talented actor and beloved veteran of the acting industry. SBS conducted the final interview with Kim Joo Hyuk three days prior to his fatal car accident, after the Seoul Awards when he took home Best Supporting Actor for Confidential Assignment. He was so happy, and that’s what I’ll remember him for, his enthusiasm and sincerity.

Kim Joo Hyuk Suffered Fatal Head Trauma in Car Accident and Funeral Scheduled for Nov 2nd — 17 Comments

  1. My heart goes out to his family, friends, and loves one. I legit shed tears in my office as i watch the video of his friends attending his funeral/wake, i do hope jung joon young could make it to his funeral tomorrow.
    Goodbye kim joo hyuk, you’ll truly be missed

    • I hope too that JJY can make it for his funeral tomorrow otherwise he will be devastated.
      Sight of Junho, Jongmin, Donggu with their red noses make me cry and Cha Taehyun with his swollen/puffy eyes…

      • JJY doesn’t know anything, everyone couldn’t reach him. It’s confirm by his agency. He’s schedule to be back to Korea at November 5. Gosh. I can not imagine if the first thing he heard when he landed is that his hyung is die in car accident and he can’t see him anymore.

  2. I still cannot believe this. I can only imagine how devastating is his sudden passing for his loved ones. He is truly a rare character, so humble and loved by everyone. RIP Gutaeng Hyung, remember each member.

    • I was sad but not to the point of crying, but I’m about to cry now after seeing your words…Remember each member…This phrase will always remind me of Kim Joo Hyuk if the 1N2D members say it on the show now. :'(

  3. This is still such shocking news. Am still not getting used to this.

    Cause of death could be head injury because of the vehicle going topsy turvy. That is after the accident.

    Why is not the autopsy revealing the cause of the accident? Why did he suddenly swerve and lose control of the vehicle? That is is reason for his accident that turned fatal. This is not being told by the police or the doctors. Why?

    • Head Injury cited as cause of Death. Ok that’s totally understandable given the devastating end condition of the car

      If anyone has seen those videos – the car was erratic – it just went smashing to the side car, then speeding off to it’s tragic end.

      This still doesn’t explain the puzzling WHY the car was doing what it did.

      RIP. All the events (and the graphic video) is a shocking reality that life can indeed be very transient. And if it is surrealy shocking to us even as bystanders, I can’t even imagine how those folks in the industry must even feel – especially going from a wedding to wake with heavy hearts.

      I first saw Kim Joo-hyuk in a Kmovie with Uhm Jung-hwa: Mr Handy aka Mr Hong … I knew who UJH was, but he was unknown to me back then. But have watched most of his works every since. Solid actor.

  4. Its heart breaking to see his girlfriend, his 1 Night 2 Days colleagues and other actors who are totally devastated as they pay their last respect.

    I am still speechless…R.I.P Kim Joo Hyuk.

  5. A condolence from Actor Oh Dae Hwan on instagram(They filmed a project together at MBC:

    “Joo Hyuk am really sorry.The Sushi you bought for a nothing like me on my birthday, didnt just fill my stomach.I keep thinking about the pork backbone stew restaurant, we went to and the ramen we ate while filming.I remember your encouragement to me, and your consideration for your colleagues.You were that kind of generous, warm friend to me.He also added, You didnt give me a chance to buy you a meal to pay you back and you left after just giving.Joo Hyuk, Im sorry.Think of only your self in heaven and rest in peace.”

  6. I’m speechless. Just want to start watching Argon for PD nim Lee Yoon Jung, and hearing such a sad news like this, I don’t know if i have the heart to watching it imagining he has already pass away

  7. It’s still really hard to take in and I was just a fan of him. Looking at his final moments is even harder now that to know that he could have survived that heart attack.Life is so unpredictable.I feel sorry for the Song-Song couple, but I wasn’t in a mood to celebrate. I will looking at their pics later. It must be so hard to feel all emotions at once. Being there for their friends as a new couple and being there for their lost friend also. How sad and how life-ish.Today -1st of November- is All Saints’ day in my country and the following day is the Day of the Dead.Rest in peace KJH, I liked you since Love me not.

  8. He was a fantastic actor, a beautiful and very attractive person inside and out. He had this kind of magnetic screen presence that made him a scene stealer even in smaller parts.

    I’ve seen lots of his work and always admired him. His 1N2D act was hilarious, loved him and his clumsiness in it so much.

    His accident’s video leaves many questions open (and quite honestly I was shocked to see not one single car stopping and the driver trying to check out his situation to help him).

    My heart goes out to his girlfriend, family, and friends. It must have been a terrible shock but time will heal and we will always be able to remember this member re-watching his legacy.

  9. So very sad…I could only imagine how poor Moon Geun Young must be feeling. Stay strong Moonie its been the most difficult year for you.God bless him and comfort those who love him.
