K-Beauty YouTuber Dawn Lee Dead After Two-Year-Long Cancer Battle
The content creator was loved for her positive energy and down-to-earth personality.
Also known by the name Saebyeok, Lee was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2019. Instead of taking a break from work, the beauty guru openly shared her cancer and chemotherapy journey with the world to deliver messages of hope for all. The YouTuber, whose story was covered on major platforms like ABC News and BBC, was loved for her uplifting and positive energy, as well as her down-to-earth personality.
“My precious friend and labelmate Dawn (Lee Jung Joo) has passed away this morning. I do not know how I can express my sadness for her passing… Her bright smile and voice will continue to shine,” Kim Eunha, the CEO of Lee’s label Ice Creative, shared in a statement. “I will never forget her courage and mindset for never losing hope despite the long battle.”
Fans of the late content creator have been commemorating her life by commenting messages of love on her final Instagram and YouTube posts. Back in April, Lee updated her followers with a video shot in Busan, where she shares that she is in the process of getting better.
Our deepest condolences are with everyone affected by the death.
