Park Yong Ha reportedly died from hanging. He was found by his mother in his room at his Nonhyun-dong, Seoul, home with a cell phone cord around his neck at around 5:30 a.m.
Park debuted in Korea showbiz scene fifteen years ago in youth shows like KBS�s 1995 "Love Blossoms in the Classroom" and 1996's "Start". But his claim to fame is the 2002's "Winter Sonata", which made him a household name. He used that fame as a bridge to a successful singing career in Japan, where he enjoyed quite a lot of popularity. He had a successful drama hit in 2008's "One Air", and in 2009's "The Slingshot".
