Choreographer Park Jung Min (37) unfortunately ended his life on February 27th.
The former dancer / singer has choreographed for some of Korea’s top stars and was found dead at his girlfriend’s house after he had hung himself. Police concluded the case as a suicide because they found no evidence of foul play and Park Jung Min, in the past, had frequently complained about his dire financial difficulties.
Park Jung Min had debuted in dance group DND in the mid-90s. Afterwards, he became the captain of dance team, Star System, and choreographed for stars including Se7en, Jang Na ra, Kim Jong Kook, Big Bang, Song Baek Kyung, and One Two. Stars such as Se7en, Kim Jong Kook and Song Ho Bum came to pay their respects at the wake in a Seoul hospital.
In addition, stars are expressing their grief on their twitter. Song Baek Kyung tweeted, “I heard the news that Star System’s Jung min unfortunately passed away. I hope that he rests in peace in Heaven.” Se7en also tweeted, “This is a strange night. I can’t sleep easily. I have much thoughts…R.I.P.”
