Actress Kim Young-ae (66) passed away in the morning of the 9th.
Since she debuted in 1971 with the 3rd MBC open recruitment process, Kim Young-ae has been actively acting both in films and dramas.
From her debut in MBC ‘Chief Inspector’ in 1971, Kim acted for more than 60 dramas including MBC ‘Trap of Youth’, KBS2 ‘Soonshimyi’, SBS ‘Sandglass’, ‘Jang Hee-bin’, MBC ‘The Moon Embracing the Sun’, ‘Kill Me Heal Me’, SBS ‘Doctors’, and KBS2 ‘The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop’. In these dramas, Kim Young-ae was sometimes a warm-hearted mother or grandmother, and sometimes a charismatic woman.
Furthermore, since she entered into the film business with film Long Live the Island Frogs, Kim Young-ae acted for films including Aeja, The Attorneys, Cart, and Pandora.
In the recently ended drama KBS2 ‘The Gentlemen of Wolgyesu Tailor Shop’, Kim played Choi Gok-ji and played a married couple with actor Shin Gu. However, during the shooting period, it was known that she was under medical treatment to fight pancreatic cancer, which made many people sympathize with her.
