Fasion designer Andre Kim passed away at the age of 75, netizens: “Another star has left us”

World known fashion designer Andre Kim (Kim BongNam) passed away on 12th August at the age of 75.

He was admitted to the hospital for pneumonia after being down with flu and on 12th August at 7.25pm he was announced dead. Even though there were reports recently about his health recovering for the better, his health was known to be deteriorating and he had to rely on a respirator. There were also speculations that the main cause of his health deterioration is colorectal cancer.

With news of his passing on, many netizens commented, “He had made many big achievement in the fashion arena. He will not be forgotten”, “I was worried about him since we did not get to see him recently, and knowing that he has passed away is just sad”, “Another star has left us” etc.

News of Andre Kim’s health deteriorating surfaced a month back in June. An official said back then, “Teacher has been hospitalised because of health issues”.

His wake will be held at Seoul University Hospital.
