Lee Sun-kyun, 48, was discovered dead in what seemed to be a suicide attempt.

Lee Sun-kyun, well known for his part in the Academy Award-winning film Parasite, was discovered dead in an apparent suicide in central Seoul.

On Wednesday, police discovered the actor's death in a car outside a local park.

According to Yonhap news agency, they believe Lee committed suicide.

Police had previously received a complaint that he had fled his home after penning a message.

He had been under investigation since October for potential unlawful drug use.

After authorities discovered Lee's body in Waring Park, his body was sent to Seoul National University Hospital. According to reports, his family has declined an autopsy.

To find out more about his death, including when he arrived at the location where his body was discovered and when he passed away, police have launched an investigation.

In the film Parasite, Lee portrayed the patriarch of the affluent Park family, which is penetrated by members of a low-income family who pose as strangers.
