The death is the latest of a string of young South Korean celebrities who have passed away in recent months, shocking fans.

Back in December of 2019, fans mourned the death of 27-year-old South Korean actor Cha In-ha, who was found dead at his home. He was reported to have been discovered by his manager who contacted the police.

The actor's last message on Instagram was posted around 20 hours before the news of his death broke, where he shared a picture of himself with a seemingly innocent message that said: "Everyone, be careful so you don't catch a cold."

The news came less than two weeks after the death of K-pop star Goo Hara, who was also found dead at the age of 28. The former member of K-pop girl group Kara was found dead in her home in the Cheongdam neighborhood of Seoul. Police confirmed "there are no suspicions of crime."

Back in October 2019, Sulli, a former member of the K-pop girl band f(x), was found dead at the age of 25 in the city of Seongnam of the Gyeonggi province of South Korea.
