March 29, 2010
SEOUL, South Korea – Reports say the brother of a South Korean movie star who committed suicide two years ago has killed himself in Seoul.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency cited an unnamed police official as saying that 39-year-old Choi Jin-young was found dead Monday morning and that he had apparently hanged himself.

Choi was an actor and singer known but was mostly known as the younger brother of Choi Jin-sil, one of South Korea's most famous actresses. She committed suicide in 2008, also at the age of 39.

South Korea has the highest rate of suicide among nations in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, a consortium of the world's leading industrialized countries.
