In addition, online memorials continued, with colleagues from the entertainment industry posting photos and tributes on their accounts.
Singer BoA posted a photo of herself with Lee Sun-Kyun and expressed her condolences, saying, "Our captain, who was the most generous supporter and atmosphere maker... I miss you... 'See you soon' was always my daily routine, but now I'll come to you." She continued, "He struggled immeasurably alone... I hope he's comfortable and happy."
She added, "He must have struggled immeasurably alone... but I hope he is now relaxed and full of happy things. Eternal captain, my uncle, I love you, rest in peace..."
"I can't believe it, I don't want to believe it, but only after I received the obituary... For me, he was Dong-hoon rather than Sun-gyun, my brother," said actor Park Ho-San, who worked with Lee in the drama 'My Uncle'. Park Dong-Hoon is the name of Lee Seon-Kyun's role in "My Uncle. Park Ho-San played Lee's older brother, Park Sang-hoon, in the drama.
Park Ho-San said, "No matter what you did, I really believe in you, how hard it must have been for you... I have to go to the wedding, but I'm a little scared... I'll go today anyway. Even if I can't talk to you later, take these words with you. I, all of us who know you, really, really believe in you," he said.
He also left an affectionate greeting, saying, "Now that you're lying down, stretch out your legs, erase all your heartache, and sleep comfortably, rest comfortably, my warm little brother."
Actress Lee Sang-Ah reflected on their relationship, saying, "It hurts when I hear about celebrity deaths... We almost worked together... I'm sorry for your loss." Actor Ha Do-Kwon also expressed his sadness, saying, "He told me to be strong... and to have a good year-end... but what is this? How hard it must have been, but I can't let you go."
In addition, group Super-Junior and actor Choi Si-Won posted a poster of "My Uncle" and wrote, "I am heartbroken. My deepest sympathies go out to the family." Han Sun-Hwa, an actress from the group Secret, shared a photo of a white chrysanthemum on a black background. Former group Afterschool member Ga-Hee also mourned the loss, writing, "I'm so sorry for your loss... My heart... breaks."
Meanwhile, Lee has been under police investigation since October for allegedly possessing hemp and crystal meth under the Narcotic Substances Control Act, but he has consistently denied the charges in the past three investigations.
Lee's stance was that he knew the drugs handed to him by the head of the high-end bar, A (29), were sleeping pills and that he had no intention of doing drugs. On the day before his death, he submitted an opinion letter to the Incheon National Police Agency's Drug Crime Investigation Division through his defense lawyer stating that he would request a polygraph examination.
Following the deceased's death, the case against him for allegedly taking drugs is expected to be finalized as 'no prosecution'.
