Beloved Singaporean actress Alice Ho Soon Kim, known for Mediacorp roles, dies at 72

Veteran Mediacorp actress Alice Ho Soon Kim (何峋瑨), has passed away at the age of 72.

Ho, who appeared in over 50 television series, began her acting career with minor roles in local television shows starting in 1997.

One of her notable on-screen portrayals was the beloved character “Beansprout Auntie” in the 2003 show “Holland V”.

Her most recent television series was “The Sky is Still Blue” earlier this year.

In addition to her work as an actress, Ho was an active practitioner of qigong. In 1987, she co-founded the Qigong Shi Ba Shi Association Singapore to promote the sport locally.

She served as the chairman of the association for 31 years until she stepped down from her position two years ago to become a consultant.

On the association’s Facebook page, she was recognized as the chief trainer and actively participated in various qigong events.

Ho passed away on Sunday (9 Jul) due to a bacterial infection after undergoing uterine surgery, as reported by 8World News.

Shin Min Daily News (Shin Min) reported that  During her funeral on Thursday, over 50 individuals performed a qigong routine to honor her.

Some of Ho’s former students created videos to commemorate her.

Her daughter shared with Shin Min that her mother was a cheerful person who had many friends.

Despite her busy schedule, Ho continued to teach qigong classes online even during the pandemic.

She mentioned that her mother had planned to travel to Japan at the end of July to participate in a qigong competition.

“Even though she had just undergone surgery, she believed she would have fully recovered within three weeks. She had an exceptional strength of will.”
