The late actor Kim Joo Hyuk's agency, Namoo Actors, wants to honor his memory the best way possible.

On December 17, the Lovers in Prague actor's 49th Day Commemorative Mass will be held in Seoul. His agency recently made the announcement about the mass remembering his life and wishing him rest in the afterlife. Fans who wish to be a part of Kim's service must register beforehand, because only the late star's family, colleagues, and registered fans will be allowed in. The media is not allowed to attend the private event, and photography, walls covered in photos and wreaths are prohibited.  

The 49th Day commemorative mass is acknowledged by people of all faiths in South Korea as a way to show you cared for the deceased and send condolences. It originated in the Buddhist faith and represented the day a deceased person leaves the world following weeks of judgement. 

His former colleagues on 2 Days and 1 Night plan to visit his grave in South Chungcheong Province the day of his commemorative mass. Stars Kim Jong MinKim Joon HoDefconnJung Joon Young, and Cha Tae Hyun are supposed to visit the memorial, a source from the show revealed. The source also mentioned that it's not going to be broadcast, either, because it's personal to them.  

Kim Joo Hyuk, who passed away in a fatal auto accident on October 30, is suspected to have died of a head injury and police are still investigating the cause of the accident. Condolences once again to Kim Joo Hyuk's family and friends.
