“Actor Lee Ji Han, who is part of our family, left us and became a star in the sky. We will remember Lee always smiling and incredibly kind. He was a bright and pure person. We cannot believe that he is no more,” they said at the agency.

Lee Ji Han was among the 154 dead in the horrific stampede in Seoul's central Itaewon district that occurred on the night of October 30.

More than one hundred thousand people had a party at the street celebrating both Halloween and the lifting of coronavirus restrictions.

The tragedy occurred when at some point people crowded in the narrow winding streets and simply could not get out of the crowd.

The authorities are accused of poor control over the mass of people who celebrated Halloween on the streets. The police said they sent 137 officers to the streets, a significant increase from previous years. But eyewitnesses said law enforcement was focused on cracking down on drug use, not crowd control in the small winding streets.

The victims of the stampede were mostly teenagers and young people around the age of 20. Among the 154 dead are 26 foreigners, including citizens of the Russian Federation, Iran, China, Uzbekistan, Norway and Japan.

A week of national mourning has begun in the country. Flags were at half mast and all entertainment events were cancelled.
