Leeteuk’s celebrity friends send condolences on passing of his father and grandparents
Super Junior leader Leeteuk’s father (Park Yong In), grandfather (Park Hyun Suk) and grandmother (Chun Kyung Tae) passed away yesterday, reported Korean media.
Leeteuk, who is currently serving his military duties, rushed to Korea University Guro Hospital immediately after he received the devastating news. His sister, singer-actress Park In Young, was rehearsing for her musical when she was informed of the news.
According to initial reports, the three had died in a car crash. However, it was reported this morning that the police had discovered the bodies inside an apartment in Dongjak, Seoul, after receiving a tip-off at around 9am yesterday. A suicide note believed to be written by Leeteuk’s father was also allegedly found at the scene.
Following the news, SM Entertainment has asked for the public to allow the family to grieve in peace. Super Junior members were seen at the wake last night, while many celebrities, including BEAST’s Doojoon, 2AM’s Jokwon and singer Brian Joo, have also expressed their condolences to Leeteuk and his family via social media.
