According to a Korean website, Chae Dong Ha (photo) was found dead at his home this morning and he was believed to have committed suicide.

The report also stated that Chae Dong Ha (채동하) has been suffering depression which possibly led to his suicide.

Chae Dong Ha is only 29 years old and is turning 30 in less than a month from now (June 23).

He was a member of a K-pop group called "SG Wannabe" from 2004 to 2008 and since then, he was proving his worth as a solo artist until his untimely death.

Chae Dong Ha's suicide comes as a big shock as it happened only 3 days after the suicide of Song Ji-seon, a sports announcer on South Korean channel MBC.

According to a Washington Post report last year, South Korea has the highest suicide rate in the world.

In 2009 and 2010, Mykiru Isyusero was able to blog about the suicides of two celebrities from South Korea: "Boys Over Flowers" actress Jang Ja-Yeon and "Winter Sonata" actor Park Yong Ha.

And when talking about South Korean celebs who committed suicide, the list is becoming endless.
