UPDATE: It saddens me to post that it appears the news was true. I really don’t know what to say. Shawn was an inspiration to many of us Korea bloggers, and his tragic death comes as a great, great shock. Again, I send my heartfelt condolences to his friends and family. He will be dearly missed, even by those like me who knew him only as an incredibly talented writer and blogger.

ORIGINAL POST: I don’t know whether to believe this or not, but if it’s true, it’s a tragedy and my condolences go out to his friends and family.
