Actress beloved for her girlish smile, Kim Ja-ok, after rising to stardom in the 1970s, has died of complications from lung cancer on Sunday. She was 63 years old. Petite with a fragile look, she once held all the romantic roles, dubbed “Queen of Tears.” She enjoyed her renaissance in the 1990s as she acted "silly old princess" in a sitcom. The deceased, who was loved by both the elderly and young people, will be remembered as an “eternal princess.”
