The report added that In Hye was immediately brought to the emergency room of a nearby hospital and regained her breathing for a while, but was later diagnosed with cardiac arrest and never regained consciousness.
Earlier reports said that the actress had attempted to take her own life.
Allkpop quoted the police as saying: “Oh In Hye’s friend found her and reported it, but we do not know why the friend was there. We currently believe that she (attempted suicide).”
