Death, death each day someone died, each day families and friends lose someone dear to them. Death doesn’t discriminate, it hit every sphere of the population, death doesn’t care about who you are, what you do and it can hit any times.
While we are not seeing the our loving one who left us for an other world, I believe one really died when we stop thinking about them, this is probably why I continue to think about my father every day (even if it hurt me) or about my grandparents. It’s only when I still stop thinking about them, that I will stop remembering moment with them that they will truly be death, as for now the are living in my memories.
Today’s K-Friday, I will make live through video some of the artist from the Korean music industry who left us too early.
Lim YoonTaek was the lead singer of the group Ulala Session, he passed away in February 2013 due to cancer. I watching performance of the group on Immortal Song stage while he was sick ( which cause some ugly people saying that he was faking his cancer). Knowing what I know now, about his health make me admire him more. He didn’t let the cancer stopping him to do what he like, signing and be on stage.
In this video Lim YoonTaek is the one wearing the pink suit.
EunB & Rise from Ladies’ Code
There death was a total shock, I still can’t believe it happen, Ladies’ Code was (still is) a talented group a group I was looking forward to see blooming, but destiny decided that two of the member would not part of that on a tragic rainy night on September 2014. The driver of minivan in which the group were taking place lost control, EunB died on location, while Rise pass away a few days later from her injuries. After the shocking announce, this song topped the chart.
If some of you might have heard about Ulala Session and Ladies’ Code, I doubt you ever hear about Shin HaeChul. The one who was called by his fan “Demon Lord” or “The Devil” due to his charismatic stage presence, was easy recognizable by his tattooed snake on the side of his head. Shin HaeChul death could have been avoided if the surgeon had made his job properly, he is death was the result of a medical malpractice.
As said it Death doesn’t care who you are and surely doesn’t care about how old you are, Seo Minwoo was the leader of the kpop boy group 100%, in died from a heart attack in March 2018. He was back from his military service, young healthy, the group he was leader of, might not have been the most popular but it have a solid fanbase cheering on them. Minwoo just had the time to participate to two mini album between his discharge of the military service and his death, it show how Death can be unfair.
I already made a post when he passed away, and I know a lot of fan still refuse to believe it.
Kim JongHyun was a poet, an artist, someone who wanted to make the other happy, someone who was caring about the well-being of his friend more than his own. He did tried to get help, to talk, however even the doctor he was seeing didn’t provide much help. SHINee released new albums since his death and I’m still waiting to see him appear in the music video.
I know I only share one video for all the other, but I really have to share the one below, the song was written by Kim JongHyun he from it for Lee Hi and she performed as a tribute for him. I feel that after his death people found comfort in this song.
Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used, put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we shared together.
Let my name ever be the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
I would really like to give a proper credit for this, however I found two different source and I’m not sure which one is the right one.
Death took many people away from us and we will forever be grieving their death, but they can still be alive in our memory.
