Korean actor Cha In-ha was found dead in his apartment on Tuesday. This is the third death reported of a Korean celebrity in a matter of couple months sparking rumours of a negative environment that the entertainment industry is functioning in. 

Merely 27 years old, Cha In-ha was best known for his roles in Korean dramas ‘The Banker’ and ‘Love with Flaws’. 

Confirming Cha In-ha’s death, Korean entertainment website Soompi reported that the actor’s agency Fantagio issued a statement, "We feel devastated to deliver such heartbreaking and unfortunate news. On December 3, actor Cha In Ha left our sides. We are truly heartbroken to deliver sad news to everyone who has sent lots of love and support to Cha In Ha until now. We are filled with grief at this news that is still hard to believe.”

The agency has also requested fans to avoid rumours and "speculative reports to not be released in order for his family, who is experiencing greater sadness more than anyone due to the sudden sad news, to send him away peacefully. As wished by his family, the funeral will be held privately."

The news of his death comes right after K-pop singer Goo Hara was found dead at the age of 28. Before her, K-pop star Sulli had also committed suicide in October at the age of 25.
