A group of artists and cultural figures will present a statement titled “Demands of Cultural and Artistic Figures Facing the Passing of the Late Actor Lee Sun Kyun” at the Press Center in Jung-gu, Seoul on January 12th.

Formed around 29 cultural and artistic organizations, the Association of Cultural Artists (literal translation) has emerged to address the untimely death of Lee Sun Kyun in their belief that such a tragedy should never be repeated again in the industry. Their unified efforts include calling for a comprehensive investigation by authorities, requesting the removal of articles that do not align with ethical reporting and calling for the revision of current laws to protect the human rights of cultural and artistic figures.

The statement will be announced by director Bong Joon Ho, singer and songwriter Yoon Jong Shin, director Lee Won Tae, actor Choi Deok Moon, and other relevant organization leaders.

  • This shouldn’t have happened. He was telling the truth. And now a day after the funeral they arrested the girl, plus she was trying to leave the country. And the police closed his case, questioning. Very bad policy. So sad.

  • PARABÉNS…..PORÉM, GOSTEI DA ATITUDE DOS ARTISTAS…NO ENTANTO, ESSA PRECIOSA VIDA QUE SE FOI TEM QUE SER FEITA JUSTIÇA, POIS TEM E TEVE VÁRIOS CULPADOS POR ELA.

  • Media has a huge role and responsibility in society for credibility and integrity while protecting private citizens and the public interest. I hope something like this happens globally.

  • I hope you achieve it and bring protection to all artists and people in this world
    every person must be protected so that such tragedies never happen again due to the pressure of your performance.
    we are all different and so are the families who now have to suffer so much
