Actress Jang Jin-young Dies of Cancer at 35

``Actress Jang Jin-young passed away today at the Seoul St. Mary's Hospital at Catholic University of Korea. Even after she was diagnosed with cancer, she was always positive and tried to pay back the love and support her fans sent her. We will remember her passion toward films and we hope she stays in our hearts forever,'' Jang's agency, Yedang Entertainment, said through a press release.


I can't find any information about her religion. But she was at a Catholic hospital... I hope she received a visit from a chaplain.

May she rest in peace.

I was under the iompression that she was Catholic, but cannot seem to confirm that in searching in Korean or English.

Last night on the news, I saw a crucifix on her altar (maybe it was the one set up at St. Mary's Hospital), but all of the photos on the Internet show the altar at Asan hospital, where her wake wa moved, with no crucifix.
