Singer-Songwriter Maeng Yuna Passes Away
Singer-songwriter Maeng Yuna has passed away.
On January 8, JH Entertainment belatedly reported that singer Maeng Yuna passed away. The agency said, “On December 26, Maeng Yuna was found deceased at her home due to a heart attack.”
They continued, “Because it was the end of the year and everything was hectic, we did not have the time to announce the news. Instead, we held a small funeral for her with her closest friends.”
They also revealed that the singer had been preparing to make a comeback in June. The company said, “She was preparing for her third studio album and was recently invited to give a lecture at a college. She seemed very eager to live. Aside from the stress she received from producing music, she did not have any other particular disease. We cannot believe it.”
Maeng Yuna, born in 1989, made her debut in 2007 when she sang the OST for the drama “Spring Waltz.” Afterwards, she received the nickname of “Suzanne Vega of South Korea” and solidified herself as one of the most prominent indie singer-songwriters.
We send our sincerest condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.
