“Kim Mi Soo suddenly passed away on January 5,” Kim’s agency, Landscape Entertainment,  said in a statement translated by Soompi. “The bereaved family is currently very heartbroken by the sudden mournful news.”

“We sincerely ask you to refrain from making up rumors or speculative reports so that the bereaved family, who are in shock and grief-stricken, can reverently commemorate the deceased,” the agency added. “As per her family’s wishes, the funeral will be held quietly in private.
