Actress Choi Jin-sil Found Dead at Home

Choi Jin-sil, a famous South Korean actress, was found dead at her home in what appears to be a suicide, Yonhap News reported quoting police sources Thursday.

Choi’s mother found the actress with an elastic band around her neck tied to a shower stall in her home in southern Seoul, officers at the Seocho Police Station said.

“We confirmed her death at 7:38 a.m. after receiving a call that Ms. Choi committed suicide,” a police officer was quoted as saying.

Police have been investigating rumors that linked Choi to the recent suicide of another actor, Ahn Jae-hwan, in early September. Rumors circulated that she had lent a large amount of money to Ahn whose debt was mounting from a failing business.

Choi, 40, had since sought a police probe into the source of the rumors, calling them groundless. Investigators arrested a woman, a securities company employee, this week for spreading the rumors.

Choi, one of South Korea’s top actresses, whose marriage to pro baseball player Cho Sung-min ended in an ugly divorce in 2004, is survived by two children.
