Although the South Korea native has acted in many notable movies, including “The Man With the Golden Gun” and “Missing in Action 2: The Beginning”, his most beloved role is arguably Fa Zhou, Mulan’s father in the Disney animated classic “Mulan”.
“He awakened within me a life-changing cultural and community awareness; and while we continually performed and interacted with Korean American partner organizations over the next five years or so, Mr. Oh constantly coached and mentored me,”wrote Tim Lounibos in a tribute.
Netizens were devastated by the news.
I am saddened by the passing of Soon-Tek Oh, the voice of Fa Zhou. It was a privilege to work with him. “You bring honor to us all”. pic.twitter.com/zCkpylZQx8
