Lee Ae-jung died at the age of 20 due to a tumor disease that she suffered from. Lee Ae-jung was diagnosed of a brain tumor in July 2006, while she was in her first semester at Hanyang University. She had visited the clinic for a headache only to find out that she in actuality had a tumor in her brain. Afterward, she underwent surgery twice at Seoul National University Hospital.

It was later reported that Lee Ae-jung wanted to write positive messages to her fans because she did not want others to worry about her. She also uploaded only cheerful pictures on her cyworld in an effort to prevent others from finding out about her condition. There’s no doubt in my mind that she was a sweet, thoughtful and considerate actress.
