Actor Lee Ji-Han's agency, 935 Entertainment said today, “Lee Ji-Han, who was more than just an artist to us, has tragically left our side to become a star in the sky. Lee Ji-Han was a warm-hearted friend to everyone with infinite talents. He will truly be missed. Rest In Peace.”

Lee Ji-Han’s morgue is in Myongji Hospital in Gyeonggi-do, and his funeral is to take place on November 1st

Another victim of the Halloween stampede is Kim Yuna, a cheerleader for the professional baseball teams LG Twins and Kia Tigers.
