(Updated) Actress Jang Jin-young has passed away

Filed under: actors/actresses — extrakorea @ 12:25 pm

Commenter Kushibo informed me that the article that I linked to in my previous post was changed. Actress Jang Jin-young has passed away. I enjoyed some of Ms. Jang’s movies and think that she was a good actress. Rest In Peace.


The Korea Times has a more recent article which goes into her career in more depth. By the way, it states that her age was 35, whereas the previous article said that she was 37. Perhaps they’re going by international age and East Asian age, respectively.

  1. I thought that the age discrepancy might be a Korean age calculation thing, but it appears that — at least at the Korean- and English-language Wikipedia articles — there’s a discrepancy about when she was born, 1974 or 1971.
