This site is dedicated to Kim Hoon.
On December 12, Kim Ji Hoon, part of the duo Duke, was found dead in his hotel room.

It was originally reported that Kim Ji Hoon was found unconscious in a hotel room and then transferred to a hospital, but a representative of the police announced that he had died in the hotel and they are still investigating the cause of death. A source reported that there was no significant injury on his body, and that authorities are guessing that it was suicide.

Kim Ji Hoon’s body was discovered around noon on December 12, by a younger acquaintance who had a plans to eat lunch together that day. An acquaintance of Kim Ji Hoon told eNews, “Kim Ji Hoon had been having troubles because of debt.”

Kim Ji Hoon debuted in the group TwoTwo in 1994 and released two albums. In 200o he formed the duo Duke with Kim Suk Min and released hits such as “Party Tonight” and “Starian.” In 2008 Kim Ji Hoon made headlines with his divorce, and then in 2009 was banned from appearing on TV because of drug charges.
Kim Ji Hoon debuted with the group TwoTwo in 1994 with hits such as "1 and 1/2" and "Cheating Girl". In 2000, he formed the male duo Duke with Kim Suk Min and continued to enjoy musical success. However, in 2009, he was charged with illegal possession and usage of illegal drugs and was prosecuted.
Kim Ji Hoon had a child with his ex-wife in 2007 and married her in 2008. They divorced in 2011 citing irreconcilable differences. However, it was later found out that his wife desired to be a Korean Shaman, believing that she was possessed by a ghost.
Kim Ji Hoon's wife tweeted an ominous tweet recently, which many believed to foreshadow a suicide attempt. It read, "Thank you every one... I want to leave now... It was so hard to live here. I guess I was a bad child. I want to see my child but I don't have the strength anymore. Kim Ji Hoon, my child's father, please take care of our kid. Cremate my bones and let me fly free..."
Kim Ji Hoon's corpse is currently staying at a hospital in Gangnam. His family is currently rushing to the hospital. The police said that they will investigate, but all signs point to it being a suicide.
His fans responded to the death with comments such as "Duke Kim Ji Hoon, I hope you find peace in death" and "It's terribly sad to lose another star in this way".
