Choi Jin-sil's Brother Speaks Out

2009/01/07 | 925 views | Permalink | Source

Actor and singer Choi Jin-young, younger brother of late actress Choi Jin-sil, appeared on the KBS "Park Jung Hoon Show" on Dec. 21, and spoke of his sister. "There were times when I resented her for passing on this huge burden to me", said a tearful Choi.

"I decided to come to the show because I wanted to show my sister in heaven that many people are still remembering her", he added.

Choi said after the divorce his sister suffered from malicious comments posted online -- and once decided to immigrate to the U.S. for the sake of her children. Choi also told how the late actress returned to the spotlight via KBS drama "My Rosy Life" after undergoing personal difficulties.

"I hope she visits my dreams and tell me that she is doing all right", said Choi.

Choi Jin-sil committed suicide last October after suffering from extreme stress over a rumor that she may have lent money to actor Ahn Jae-hwan, who also committed suicide due to business failure and consequent financial difficulties.
