Korean actor Park Yong-ha, famous internationally with popular drama Winter Sonata, was found dead this morning in apparent suicide.
No suicide note was found. His family and acquaintances said Park had been severely distressed by his father’s stomach cancer.
Park rose to global fame in 2002 with Winter Sonata. He launched a successful singing career in Japan and was still an on-demand actor in Korea. His last major success was drama On Air in 2008.
Rest in peace.
