The actress Woo Seung-yeon was found hanged in her home in Jamsil, Seoul on Monday morning. The 26-year-old actress and model apparently killed herself.
The police on Tuesday said a friend who lived with her found Woo's body. Officers found a five-line note to her family in her diary that reads, "I love my family. I'm sorry I'm leaving before you."
Police said Woo often told friends and her sister how upset she was that she failed a number of auditions for new roles recently. "It seems that a combination of fear of the future and depression about her current situation led to Woo's suicide," police said.
Woo's management agency Oracle Entertainment said it seems Woo had been suffering from depression, but police said there was no need to investigate that aspect since her family did not mention it.
