After it was confirmed by police officials a few days ago that PD Kim Jo Hak had committed suicide, colleagues, actors and fans have been grieving his unexpected death. It appears that the director was held under the suspicion of fraud, embezzlement and failing to pay the cast members of “Faith.” Close friends like actor Jo In Sung, have especially been impacted by the sudden loss of a dear friend.
On July 27, Jo In sung was interviewed by KBS 2TV‘s “Entertainment Weekly” at PD Kim Jo Hak’s funeral hall about what kind of person Kim Jo Hak was to him.
Jo In Sung replied, “He was like a mountain of support for me. The fact that he suddenly did this out of the blue really shocked me. He was like a father to me. He taught me so much and I was able to learn a lot from him. It really kills me.”
Jo In Sung first worked with PD Kim Jo Hak back in 2002 on drama, “The Great Ambition.”
