South Korean actress Jeong Da-bin was found dead in her bathroom in Seoul on Saturday morning after an apparent suicide.

Her boyfriend was the first person to find her dead body. The two drank with friends on Friday night and went home in the early morning.

The 26-year-old actress enjoyed certain popularity among Chinese audiences for her movies including "The Guy Was Gorgeous" and the TV drama "My Sister-in-Law is 19."

Jeong Da-bin's agent company held a press conference on Saturday in Seoul. The actress' boss expressed suspicion that the actress committed suicide. He revealed that he had talked to her on the phone about an upcoming TV drama two days ago. He doubts she killed herself or was killed.

However, the police did not find any evidence to prove that she was killed by someone else.

It is speculated the reason for her suicide was that she could not stand the pressure of her declining showbiz career. The actress posted an article titled "The Ending" on her personal website.

Over 500,000 fans have left their messages on her site since her death was announced.

The actress body will be cremated on Monday.
