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.
