Heart attacks claim lives of singers

News broke on Tuesday that singers Maeng Yu-na and Jinhyoung have both died from heart attacks. Maeng passed away in December, while Jinhyoung died on Monday.

Maeng, who went by her stage name Yuna, died Dec. 26 at her residence at the age of 29.

“It was the end of the year and things were so busy, so we had a small funeral with a few of her acquaintances,” said her agency.

“She was invited to lecture at a university, and so she was so energetic,” said her agency. “Apart from the stress she suffered from creating her music, she didn’t have any other diseases, and so it’s hard to believe that she’s gone.”

Singer Jinhyoung died of a sudden heart attack Monday morning at the age of 33. His wife posted the location of his funeral, asking for friends and family to say goodbye.

Jinhyoung made his debut in 2006.
