Meanwhile, younger celebrities are using their online homepages as venues to pay tribute to the former president. Actor Lee Joon-gi wrote words of condolences on his mini homepage and comedian Kim Je-dong wrote that he admired the late president and wanted to drive a tractor with him. Popera singer Im Hyung-joo mourned Roh's death by saying that he still remembers how the president held his hands and smiled at him after he sang the Korean national anthem at Roh's inauguration ceremony.
