Jang Jin Young

Jang Jin Young was a South Korean actress. Jang began her career as a model, and participated in the 1993 Miss Korea beauty contest, before making the switch into acting. After making her film debut in 1998, Jang received critical praise and won a number of awards for her work. She became only the second winner of two Blue Dragon Film Awards for Best Actress, having won in 2001 for Sorum, and again in 2003 for Singles. As of 2008, Jang was one of the highest-paid stars in the Korean film industry, earning in the region of ₩400 million per film.
During a regular health check on September 22, 2008, Jang was diagnosed with stomach cancer. This was considered a strange and tragic coincidence as she was well known for her role in Scent of Love as a woman dying of stomach cancer. She had been suffering from pain while eating but had believed the cause to be a stomach ulcer. In a telephone interview aired on MBC’s After News program on November 29, 2008, Jang told the public that she had been undergoing Western medical treatments coupled with traditional herbal remedies and that her health was improving. Eventually, her condition continued to deteriorate and Jang was hospitalized in Seoul, where she died at approximately 4:04 p.m. on September 1, 2009
After Jang’s death, it was belatedly revealed that she had been secretly married. She had wed her husband, Kim Young Kyun, while in the U.S. for cancer treatment, and registered the marriage to make it official in Korea just days before her death. Kim later published a book commemorating the 608 days of their relationship, called My Last Gift To Her. The book features previously unreleased photos (including that of their Las Vegas wedding), as well as some of the letters and text messages they’d exchanged.
