The spotlight is futile. Actor Lee Mi-ji ended her life in solidarity on this day 4 years ago.
On November 28th, 2017, late actor Lee Mi-ji was found dead in an officetel in Yeoksam-dong, Seoul, where she lived alone. Her younger brother found her while visiting the deceased’s house. It was reported that at the time of her body’s discovery, two weeks had passed since her death, adding to the shock.
The autopsy findings were a kidney failure shock death. At the time, an official at the Suseo Police Station in Seoul said through OSEN, “There were no charges of murder or crime,” adding, “There was nothing special from the CCTV.” Lee Mi-ji was 58 years old.
The late Lee Mi-ji debuted in 1981 and has had a long list of various acts across screens and home screens. She left behind nearly 40 works, among which the most famous are MBC’s “Moon of Seoul,” “Country Diary,” KBS’ “There is a bluebird,” and “Where does a woman stay?”
In addition, Lee Mi-ji had been active by appearing in “Taejo Wanggeon”, “Six Siblings”, “Man of the sun, Lee Je-ma”, “Golden Apple”, “The Great Merchant”, “It’s Okay Because I Am A Mom”, etc. However, she didn’t have any special activities from 2015 to 2017, so MBN’s drama “It’s Okay Because I Am A Mom”, which was aired in September 2015, became her last work before passing away.
