Singer-songwriter Maeng Yuna (29) revealed to have passed away

Singer-songwriter Maeng Yuna (29) has passed away. 

On January 8, JH Entertainment announced, "On December 26, Maeng Yuna has passed away at her home from a heart attack," and explained, "We were unable to share the news sooner because it was year-end time and things were overwhelming. A funeral took place with close peers."

The agency added, "She was preparing the 3rd album to be released in June and showed motivation after being invited as the music department professor for a university. Besides from stress from music producing, she did not have any specific illness. It's unbelievable."

Maeng Yuna debuted with "Waltz of Spring" in 2007. Since then, she actively promoted as a singer-songwriter. In April 2018, she released her 2nd album.

Hard work CAN kill, especially if you never give yourself downtime.....

I saw pictures of her from months before her death, and she looked extremely skinny. Sometimes the body cannot deal with the stress some people put them through and give up.... very sad to see someone that young go.

Yeah, she looked really emaciated. She was probably anorexic.

Heart attack at 28 but no condition? That's very unfortunate.

Some people do have a condition but it's not identified until they actually have the heart attack, and then it's often too late. I knew of a guy in his mid-twenties who just keeled over on the street one evening, he was lucky to get treatment quickly. He probably had the condition from birth, but with no family history or other risk factors there was no reason to look for it.

Truly.
For some people, tragically, the first and only sign of heart trouble is them....... dying.

My condolences go to her as well :'(. Only 29 too :'C.

Though, this is beginning to sound sketchy, not in a bad way but, it's just so weird it's like an episode of the Twilight Zone. I hope no more news breaks out :'( It's 2019 it's supposed to be a good year, 8 days in and 2 people were already pronounced dead :'(.

So very sad!! She apparently had a condition that neither she nor anyone else knew about. Sometimes doctors even miss it. Just goes to show that you never know when...

Sergei Grinkov was an Olympic and world champion pairs figure skater with his wife. While practicing one day he collapsed and died of a massive heart attack at age 28. An autopsy revealed coronary arteries that were severely clogged, and they discovered he had a genetic predisposition to this condition. So yes, it’s rare, but it can happen.

when stress and overwork take toll on your physical health, it’s lethal. I remember my friend’s mom who worked double and always tired, just collapsed one day and died on the spot. Sad... R.I.P to her

My condolences to her and her family. I hadn't heard of her before, but thought I could offer my respect by looking up some more information about her.


The article mentioned Spring Waltz which I recognize (part of the Endless Love drama series that includes Autumn In My Heart, Winter Sonata, Summer Scent & lastly Spring Waltz) and it appears that on the OST track list she sang track # 6, Flower - U-NA (유나). Spring Waltz is the only drama in the series I haven't watched so I've never heard the song, but I was able to track down what I believe is the video. The drama came out in 2006, so she was either 16 or 17 when she sang on the OST.



Beautiful Song.


RIP Maeng Yuna

Condolences to her family.


Methamphetamine is on the rise in South Korea. My friends brother passed away last year, they labeled it as heart failure but most people knew the truth. He was a healthy 28 year old.
