Son Ho Young attempts suicide following his girlfriend's death

Singer Son Ho Young has been reported to have attempted suicide in his car on the morning of the 24th.

According to the police, at 4:36 AM, Son Ho Young parked his car at a parking lot near Onnuri Church, Seoul and attempted to commit suicide in the same method as his girlfriend by lighting butane gas inside his car. The car caught on fire, and as the singer tried to back away from it, a passerby noticed the fumes coming out of the car and made a call to the police for help. He was then rushed to the hospital and was treated immediately, and is fortunately said to be fine with no damage to his health.

Prior to this incident, the singer attended the funeral for his girlfriend and stayed at the wake for the whole day.

His agency has stated that they're still checking into the matter, and for the sake of Son Ho Young as well as his loved ones, they're not sure if an official statement will be released at all regarding the matter.

We wish Son Ho Young a speedy recovery and hope that he can pull through this heartbreaking occurrence.

[Update - The agency has released a short statement stating, "Son Ho Young will need to be hospitalized for two to four days. Although there is no damage to his health, he is in a very fragile state of mind and needs to find stability."]
