South Korea is in shock after actress Choi Jin-Sil was found dead today in her home of an apparent suicide. Shoi Jin-Sil has been involved in some difficult rumors since her 2004 divorce pro baseball player Cho Sung-Min.
Jin-Sil was rumored to have been involved with some shady financial dealings with actor Ahn Jae-Hwan who committed suicide after running up huge amounts of debt from failed businesses. Reports surfaced that Jin-Sil lent Jae-Hwan nearly $2 million dollars during that time. Jin-Sil had taken medication to combat depression after her very public and messy divorce, but found the constant tabloid rumors to be too much. She sent a text to her make-up artists prior to her suicide asking her to take care of her two children. The next morning she was found by her mother with a rubber cord around her neck in the shower. No suicide note was found in the apartment. It is a sad end for the 40 year old icon.
