[News 23-Aug] Gong Yoo who is currently serving Military Service, sent Eon off in the last journey, carrying his tablet during the funeral.

[Chinese translation by NaaL/yooko@:【gongyoo@PTT】http://blog.sina.com.tw/gongyooptt/]

Eon departed from this world at the young age of 27 years old..... funeral was carried out at dawn, with the company of grieving surviving family members and good friends

The funeral was brought forward to 4am on 23rd. With the company of more than 100 family members and friends, the farewell ceremony was carried out in a quiet and solemn atmosphere.

Out of respect for the wishes from Eon's parents, this ceremony was not open to public. At around 5am, the coffin was moved to the car. Among the team guarding the coffin, Gong Yoo who was carrying the tablet attracted attention.

Gong Yoo arrived quietly about 3 hours (around midnight) before the actual ceremony. He was accompanying Eon so that he won't feel lonely. He still couldn't believe that his good friend who was only 27 years old left the world just like that. Throughout the 4 hours ceremony, Gong Yoo expressed deep sorrow.

Many people attending the wake and mourning for him shows Eon's good personality and popularity among friends.

On this day, other than Gong Yoo, Ju Ji Hoon, etc., many artistes and models attended the wake. Everyone was sobbing when sending Eon off during this last journey. Eon's mom had to be supported by relatives to attend the ceremony. Eon's dad was suppressing his sorrows and staying quietly beside his beloved son.

After the cremation, Eon's remains will be buried in his hometown - Busan.

Gong yoo is such a good man, excusing himself in the service for a while to pay his
last respect for his good friend and fellow actor. This indeed is a sad day for everyone
who loves Eon.

RIP Eon and farewell.

Eon is such a great person. I love him in Coffee Prince. We'll always remember Lee Eon-sshi.

Its weird to be watching Mighty Chilwu weekly and seeing Eon on screen while knowing that he's already dead and buried. He's so young, only 27, I still find it hard to believe that he's dead.
