The actress featured in South Korean television drama Snowdrop, and her death was confirmed by her agency Landscape Entertainment on Wednesday.

“Kim suddenly left us on January 5,” Landscape said in a statement translated by South Korean English newspaper Korea JoongAng Daily.

Kim was born in South Korea on March 16, 1992. Her age has been reported as between 29 and 31 in Korean media, owing to different methods of calculation.
