Taipei, June 8 (CNA) A funeral ceremony for Taiwanese actor Shone An (安鈞璨), who died June 1 of liver cancer, took place in Tainan Monday.

Relatives and many celebrity friends of An gathered at the Tainan City Mortuary Services Office to pay their last respects.

"He had such a serious illness but never told us," said visibly distressed TV talk show hostess Dee Hsu (徐熙娣), or Xiao S.

TV host Kang Kang (康康) said An's death is a reminder for people to take good care of their health.

"It's a pity to die at such a young age. Living is not only for yourself, but also for people you love and those who love you," he said.

An, whose real name was Huang Yi-cheng (黃益承), died at the age of 31 at his home in Tainan.

An was a member of boy band Comic Boyz, which disbanded in 2005. He also appeared in films and TV dramas such as "Case Sensitive" (敏感事件) and "The Emperor's Harem" (後宮).
