At approximately 5:40 AM on June 30, 2010, famed actor Park Yong-ha was found dead in his home in Nonhyun-dong of Seoul. His mother had found his body after Park had hung himself using a phone charger cord. The ambulance arrived at about 5:47 AM and confirmed that not only was he dead, but had been dead for a good two to three hours. Medical officials described his body has cold and hardened, with purple marks indicating that some time had passed after he died. They continued explaining that these purple markings tend to appear about one to two hours after a person has died.

This tragic and early death for the actor only 32 years of age comes just three months after the suicide of Choi Jin-young, brother of famous actress Choi Jin-shil who also committed suicide. Choi Jin-shil's suicide was hot on the tracks of Ahn Jae-hwan's suicide. This heartbreaking trend is one not exactly new to the entertainment industry.

Park Yong-ha was most noted for his role in "Winter Sonata" and "On Air", and was even recently casted as the male starring role in "Love Song - Drama" with Yoon Eun-hye.

His wake was held at Gangnam Saint Mary's Hospital where many stars showed up including So Ji-sub, Kim Hyung-jun, Kim Ki-bum, Song Seung-heon, Eru, CNBLUE, Ryu Si-won, U-know, Kim Hywon-joo, Kim Min-jung, Park Hyo-shin, PSY, and Eugene.
