SEOUL, Jan. 7 (Yonhap) — Police said Tuesday they were investigating the deaths of the father and grandparents of Leeteuk, a member of the popular K-pop boy band Super Junior.

Their bodies were discovered in their apartment in Shindaebang-dong, southwestern Seoul, at about 9:20 a.m. Monday by a relative.

The 84-year-old grandfather and 79-year-old grandmother were lying in bed covered with a blanket and the father, aged 57, was found hanging from a wardrobe door in his room, police said. The three are presumed to have died at about 11 p.m. Sunday, police added.

Officers found a suicide note at the site believed to be written by the father surnamed Park.

The exact contents of the note are not known, but sources say it read, “I’ll take my parents with me.”

Park, who formerly was a trader, was suffering from depression, the bereaved family said.

He had cared for his parents, both of whom had been suffering from dementia for years, police said.

Police said they were trying to determine the exact cause of the deaths but believe that Park killed himself after strangling his parents to death.

On Monday night, however, Leeteuk’s management company S.M. Entertainment had announced that the singer’s father and grandparents were killed in a car accident.

Actor Kim Woo bin recently talked about his “The Heirs” co-stars Park Shin Hye andf(x)’s Krystal.

On January 7, Kim Woo Bin made a guest appearance on MBC FM4U’s “Park Kyunglim’s 2PM Date”. He shared, “Out of Park Shin Hye, Krystal and Kim Ji Won, I felt most comfortable with Park Shin Hye. It was comfortable to talk to her because she is like a younger sibling to me. I wouldn’t say that I view her as a man would.”

“Park Shin Hye is someone who works extremely hard and has a positive attitude. She also looks after the staff a lot. Rather than a woman, she seems more like a colleague to me. When the cameras were on, she looked at me as though Eunsang was looking at Young Do. I also looked at her as Young Do,” he said.

“Then which female actress seemed more like a woman to you?” asked radio program host Park Kyunglim.

“At the drama filming set, all of them made the male staff members very happy. I think Krystal, however, was the only one who all of the staff members really liked. Whenever Krystal was filming, there was a lot of people gathered. When it was my turn, everyone took restroom breaks,” he said while laughing.

He continued, “Out of all the f(x) members, I would say that Krystal is closest to my ideal type. It’s because we’re friends. The other members I haven’t really had a chance to personally meet, so I’m not close to them.”

In one of her last Twitter posts, Venezuelan beauty queen Monica Spear wished her fans peace, health and love.

The 29-year-old soap opera star was gunned down by the side of a country road less than a week later.

Armed robbers opened fire after the car Spear and her estranged husband, Thomas Henry Berry, were driving in broke down in Venezuela’s Carabobo state, officials said. Both of them were killed.

Their 5-year-old daughter survived Monday’s shooting, authorities said, but was shot in the leg.

“At the moment the only thing we know is that it is presumed that the motive was robbery,” Venezuelan Justice Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres said. “We are still investigating. There are five people detained who are being interrogated.”

Spear was Miss Venezuela in 2004 and represented her country in the Miss Universe pageant the next year.

Her popularity opened the door to acting roles in soap operas that eventually made her an international star. She worked in Colombia and more recently in the United States, where she made her home in Miami.

She was vacationing in Venezuela with her family when she was killed.

Word of Spear’s slaying spread quickly on social media and drew a massive response from fans in the South American nation and well beyond its borders.

Movie stars, fellow soap opera actors, athletes and government officials expressed sorrow and condemned the attack.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro called the killing a massacre and said more needed to be done to put a stop to violence.

Venezuela is one of the world’s most violent countries, according to a United Nations ranking.

One person is killed roughly every 21 minutes in Venezuela. And there were 24,700 violent deaths last year in the oil-rich country of roughly 30 million people, according to the nonprofit Venezuelan Violence Observatory.

“This happens every day in Venezuela. … If the victim had not been this actress, the person would simply be one more statistic,” said Luis Izquiel, a lawyer and criminologist in Caracas.

Richard Linares, Spear’s Venezuela-based personal trainer, said the slaying shows how little life is valued in his country.

“Life does not matter,” he told CNN en Español on Tuesday. “A life can be traded for some shoes.”

“It devastates me that there is a 5-year-old girl who is asleep, and when she wakes up she will ask how her parents are, and she no longer has any parents,” Linares said.

Venezuelan officials said they’re committed to solving the problem.

“It is painful, not only the death of this beloved Venezuelan actress and the wound her daughter received, but also the death of any Venezuelan who falls in the hands of violence,” Rodriguez said.

Authorities also said they had assigned two prosecutors to investigate Monday’s slayings.

In an interview with The Huffington Post last year, Spear said she left Venezuela because of the country’s security problems.

But Spear was eager to visit her home country over the holidays, close friend and CNN Latino anchor Maria Alejandra Requena said.

“She wanted to spend Christmas and New Year’s in Venezuela,” Requena said, “to travel around Venezuela, to let her little daughter know her country.”
