Fashion guru Woo Jong-wan was found dead at his home on Saturday afternoon. The 46-year-old TV personality was discovered hanging by his dressing gown belt in the living room by his sister.
She told police her brother had been under serious stress due to financial difficulties. Police believe it was suicide but are investigating further. No suicide note was found.
Woo canceled all TV appearances after he was given a two-year suspended sentence in March for crashing his Audi into a taxi and fleeing the scene last December.
