It was reported that comedian Ham Hyo Joo passed away early this morning.
She was returning home from an outing with her colleagues early in the morning when she was hit by a car while crossing a street to grab a taxi. She was rushed to the hospital and received surgery, but she was not able to make it through.
A representative shared, “Fellow comedians are on their way to the hospital. Because her death was caused by a car accident, there is still further investigation to carry out by the police, so her wake has not yet been set up. Once it has been carried through, her wake will be set up at the Seoul St. Mary’s Hospital.“
The 29-year-old comedian was famous for bringing the laughter in many variety programs, including “If You Laugh,” “Blessings Will Come Your Way,” “Gag,” “Laugh and Laugh, “and “Fall Into Comedy.”
May she rest in peace.
