“There was no suicide note left at the scene,” a Suseo police representative told ABC News. “We cannot disclose any further details except for the fact that he died.”

The 27-year-old made his debut two years ago as one of four new actors who released a digital mini-album, ‘I DO,’ a project put together by his agency, Fantagio. The album failed to make it onto any music charts.

“We are devastated to deliver this heartbreaking news that actor Cha In-ha passed away on December 3rd,” his agency Fantagio said in a statement.

Cha had recently been starring in the TV series “Love With Flaws,” in a supporting role.
