Actor Lee Ji Han Mother Postes a Heartbreaking Letter on Instagram
No amount of words are sufficient to express the kind of grief a person is going through when they lose their children. Some would even say that parents who lost their children would do anything to take their place and die instead so the children could live.
The death of promising young actor Lee Ji Han as one of the victims of the Itaewon Halloween crowd crush tragedy was one of the most heartbreaking experiences for the whole Korean drama industry. His friends, family, the whole production team, and fans were profoundly mourning his passing because we could not believe how such a promising and kindhearted actor would leave so soon.
And the grief was incredibly massive for the mother of actor Lee Ji Han. Losing her son as one of the victims of the unexpected crowd crush tragedy during Itaewon Halloween was something that would have never crossed her mind.
Expressing Her Grief for Losing Her Son as One of Itaewon Tragedy Victims
On November 12, actor Lee Ji Han mother posted a heartbreaking letter on Instagram. She expressed the enormous grief she was going through and shared some memories of the late actor Lee Ji Han.
English Translation – Part 1
“I am Ji Han’s mother.
I wrote this letter just in case Ji Han could read this from somewhere. With this letter, I wanted to let everyone know so something like this would never have to happen to anyone ever again.
Ji Han, you had always been handsome with your sharp nose since you were born. In my belly, you were so calm that I touched you repeatedly and wondered, ‘Is he okay?’ You were so gentle and kind when I was raising you that I thought I could raise 20 more kids like you.
You have worked hard with a lot of effort before filming ‘Season of Kkok Du’. You didn’t skip even one day of exercise, and it broke my heart to see you monitoring your diet because I used to hear you ask so many times, ‘Mom, can I eat more of this?’.
And yet when it was finally time for your effort to pay off and the show was about to air—what a shocking surprise! I still cannot believe what happened. It was dumbfounding and absurd.
When I put your picture by my bedside, hug your phone, and fall asleep, my heart is pounding because I’m scared of the sun rising. My first treasure, you would always say, ‘Do you know how much I love you, Mom?’ when I came to your room, and you would also hold my hand once in a while.
How can I let you go before me?
English Translation – Part 2
At your funeral, when I saw the numerous and hundreds of friends, brothers, and acquaintances who loved you, the thought that ‘our Ji Han had lived well’ overwhelmed my feelings, and I lost the will to search for the meaning of life.
Will I find a way to die as well?
If I can’t, then I have to put everything together.
I wanted to lock myself up in a place no one knew and stuck myself there without taking a breath.
I’m scared of the rising sun in the morning. And when I felt hungry, I sew my mouth shut at the thought of how could I put food in.
Ji Han, you would always say, ‘I can make money and buy it myself’. You were worried you would become a burden to your mother if you wanted to buy something.
I didn’t know you were doing volunteer work as well. People always say not to let your left hand knows what your right hand is doing. And you did such a wonderful thing!
My angel, Jihan, how do I let you go?
Should I be grateful when the police escorted your coffin-laden limousine? If they had escorted you well like this in the Itaewon alley, they wouldn’t have to do it on your death.
I am so furious, and I feel resentful.
I love you, Son,
I respect you, Son,
And I miss you, Son.
Good job, My Son.
Can’t we see each other again?
God, please return our Ji Han and take me instead, I beg you.
I hope you no longer feel pain and be at peace there, My Son.
Mom will follow you someday.”
First Public Reveal at a South Korea Democratic Party Campaign for Itaewon Halloween Crowd Crush Tragedy
Before appearing on Instagram, actor Lee Ji Han mother shared her letter to the public at a Democratic Party campaign.
This campaign was to collect signatures, demanding parliamentary and independent counsel probes into the Itaewon crowd crush tragedy on Halloween and seek justice for the victims.
And since the late actor Lee Ji Han was one of the fallen victims of the Itaewon Halloween tragedy, his mother participated in the campaign.
Actor Lee Ji Han debuted in the 2018 Produce 101 Season 2. Since then, he built his reputation as a promising young actor and was filming “Season of Kkok Du” before passing. Today, “Squid Game” actor Lee Jung Joon would continue the role in his stead.
