South Korean Actor Kim Joo-hyuk Dies in Car Crash

South Korean actor Kim Joo-hyuk, a veteran performer who starred in Hong Sang-soo’s “Yourself and Yours” and “The Truth Beneath” (pictured), was killed in a car accident Monday. He was 45.

Local TV broadcaster JTBC reported that Kim’s car crashed into a wall and flipped over, colliding with another car. When firefighters pulled the actor out of the wreck, he was not breathing.

Two films in which Kim starred have yet to be released. Directed by Cho Geun-hyun, “Heung-bu” is a period drama based on a Korean folktale about two brothers. The film is currently in post-production. Lee Hae-young’s crime action drama “Dok-jeon” is still in production, but Kim is reported to have finished shooting his part of the film. Both films are set for 2018 releases.

Kim was also set to make a cameo appearance in Kim Sung-hun’s “Chang-gweol,” but he had not yet started shooting his part.
