Actress Kim Ji Young, who many will recognize as the familiar, satoori-speaking grandmotherly face in many, many dramas, has passed away due to lung cancer.

The actress debuted in 1960 with the movie 'Heirs', and she's been active in dramas and movies too numerous to even name. She was well-loved as the actress who was able to do satoori of every region in Korea, as well as the warm grandmother she played in many dramas.

She was 79 at the time of death on the 19th. We hope she rests in peace.
