Actress Jeong Da-bin Dead in Suspected Suicide

2007/02/10 | 828 views | Permalink | Source

Korean actress Jeong Da-bin was found dead at her boyfriend's home on Saturday, according to police.

Investigators said Jeong, 27, apparently hanged herself at her boyfriend's house in southern Seoul at around 8 a.m.

The boyfriend, who was only identified by his last name Lee, told the police that he discovered the body.

He was quoted as saying that she was found dead with a white towel around her neck.

The police suspect that Jeong committed suicide considering there was no sign that it was a murder. They are trying to determine the exact cause of her death.

Jeong, who also became a Korean pop culture star in Taiwan in 2005, acted in television dramas and movies.

If her death is confirmed to have been a suicide, it would be the latest case of a well-known Korean actress or pop star taking her own life.

On Jan. 21, a female singer Yuni committed suicide, while movie actress Lee Eun-joo killed herself in February 2005, which shocked many Koreans.
