Mungau Dain had never considered acting before he starred in the Oscar-nominated film "Tanna." He got the role because his elders decided he was the best-looking guy in their traditional village on the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu. They would later describe him as their answer to Brad Pitt.

Unlike Brad Pitt, Dain died Saturday in the capital Port Vila after contracting a leg infection that wasn't quickly treated. He was 24.

Her wrong birth year is wide  spread  on the internet. It's 1980, not 1983, which makes her 39 years old .

Another South Korean celeb ends it. I wonder if this is some sort of protest at this point to the way the industry treats them.

I think it must just be really hard living closely next to a country that is led by an unstable maniac with access to nuclear weapons, who you never know what he is going to do next.  Thank goodness I live in Canada and don't have that, uh, concern........oh shit.
