Many celebrities took to social media to mourn the passing of Cha In Ha.

Cha In Ha passed away on December 3, and his exact cause of death has not been revealed. A funeral was held for him in private on December 5.

Oh Yeon Seo appears in the MBC drama “Love with Flaws,” where Cha in Ha portrayed her second older brother. The drama stated that they would be airing Cha In Ha’s scenes as planned to honor his efforts during filming.

With photos of her and her three on-screen brothers, she wrote, “It’s cold, isn’t it? Go carefully. Thank you so much for being my older brother.”


Heo Jung Min is also a cast member on “Love with Flaws.” He shared a photo of the official poster for the drama.

He wrote, “A younger brother I worked with has passed away. My heart hurts even more after going to the funeral today and seeing his family’s tears. I prepared condolence money for the funeral, but his family said they weren’t accepting contributions for funeral expenses. He was someone who asked me to buy him drinks, but I never got to buy any for him. Instead, I ate plenty of hot spicy meat stew, skate, various pancakes, and drinks for free thanks to him. Thanks a lot. I remember him as someone who worked really hard while filming our drama together. You should’ve hung in there for a bit longer… I feel regretful that I couldn’t tell him that it gets better and you feel happier as you live life… Rest in peace. We, the cast of ‘Love with Flaws,’ will forever remember actor Cha In Ha. Please remember that I loved you so much. You were a really great actor.”

Fellow “Love with Flaws” cast member and Cha In Ha’s onscreen brother posted photos of the actors together.

He wrote, “My lovely younger brother, our In Ha, left without saying a word…He was a younger friend I adored because he was always bright and worked hard. My heart breaks that I didn’t notice and didn’t do anything. Please pray so that our In Ha can go to a good place and so that he won’t feel lonely. In Ha, I love you.”

Actor and labelmate Lee Tae Hwan shared a screenshot of Kim Yoon Ah’s song “Going Home” with the lyrics, “I hope you’ll let go of the burden and feel happy now. I sincerely hope for this.”
