The girlfriend of Son Ho Young was found dead in the G.O.D. singer's car on Tuesday, according to the website Soompi.

"A used briquette, an empty bottle of sleeping pills and a suicide note was discovered in the car," Gangnam police told the publication. "We assume that this is a suicide."

The note reportedly contained the dead girl's concerns over her finances and other negative comments.



According an official statement from Son Ho Young, the woman in the car was his girlfriend. They were in a serious relationship after dating for a year. When he began working on his upcoming album, the two weren't able to hang out as frequently, and the girl cut off contact completely. The singer and the girl's family were both worried about her.


Son Ho Young had reportedly lent his girlfriend his car, a Kia Carnival, several times in the past so she could practice driving.

The couple had been dating for a year, yet had grown apart in recent days, according to a representative for Son Ho Young,

"Due to Son Ho Young's preparations for his upcoming album, he has gotten busier," the rep said. "This caused him to have minor arguments with the deceased but it wasn't to the point where something this big could happen."

The G.O.D. singer, who spent his night at the police station before being released, was reportedly still in shock over his girlfriend's apparent suicide.

"On May 21, Son Ho Young was in the Gangnam Police Station from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. to be investigated," the rep explained. "Before he received a call from the police, he did not know about this at all."

A tow truck driver first discovered the dead body, after he showed up to move the car out of an illegal zone. The driver alerted the Gangnam authorities.

The rep for Son Ho Young announced that all of the singer's current commitments, including a two-week stint hosting the radio show "2 O'Clock Date" and an appearance on the South Korean sitcom "Pure Love" have been cancelled.

The Son Ho Young staffer also called on the press to please show restraint during this difficult period for the singer and his deceased girlfriend's family and friends.

"We apologize for causing worry through this bad news," the rep said. "We sincerely ask that the media won't publish unconfirmed assumptions for the sake of the deceased and her family. Finally, we offer our deepest condolences to the deceased."
