Several events and functions in the film industry were cancelled or put on hold to mourn the death of actor Kim Joo-hyuk who passed away due to a car accident. Kim Hye-soo's "Special Lady" cancelled its premiere event as well as the interviews lined up afterwards. Baek Yoon-sik and Sung Dong-il's "The Chase", Choi Min-sik and Park Shin-hye's "Heart Blackened", Hyun Bin and Yoo Ji-tae's "The Swindlers", and Sung Ji-ru and Jeon Mi-sun's "My Last Love" cancelled plans in honor of the late actor.

Go Doo-shim who decided to go on with her interview schedule, talked about Kim Joo-hyuk. She said, "We acted in a drama as mother and son and I knew his father Kim Moo-saeng very well. He was really like a son to me. It hurts to think that he had to go so soon".

The late actor's funeral has been arranged at the Seoul Asan Hospital and besides visitors, media, fans and others are not allowed. Kim Joo-hyuk's girlfriend, Lee Yoo-young, was seen going in with her head down and face covered with her hands. Choi Min-sil, Ryu Jun-yeol, Yu Jun-sang, Son Hyun-joo and Def Con from "1 Night 2 Days" also made their way to the funeral.

Words of condolences continue to come up on SNS. Musical actor Jung Sung-hwa recalled the first time he met Kim Joo-hyuk and said, "I loved how humane you were. I will never forget the value of life you showed me and the generosity you showed me. I miss you already". Director Yoo Ho-jin who was in charge of the show "1 Night 2 Days" that gave Kim Joo-hyuk the nickname "dummy brother", posted a picture of Kim Joo-hyuk smilng with his feet in the sea.

The coffin leaves the funeral on the 2nd and he will rest in a family grave in Seosan.
