The evening prior to his death (29th), Park missed a meeting with drama producers for his upcoming project Love Song. His manager couldn’t get in contact with him.Around 12:40 am, he was with his father, massaging his father’s legs. Park told him “I’m sorry” over and over. He then went into his room, where he was found in the morning.In an interview last year while promoting his movieThe Scam, Park said, “I’ve suffered from insomnia for the last ten years. I’m rather sensitive. If something bothers me I can’t sleep until it’s resolved.” He added, “I’m envious of people who can sleep well. I think sleep is needed for good mental health.”
Mr Park had been nursing his 62-year-old father and spent his last moments with him on Tuesday night, local media reported.
"I must be sick instead of you, father. I'm sorry, I'm sorry," a police statement quoted Mr Park as saying before his death.
Mr Park also told acquaintances earlier in the week that his work was "difficult and this kind of life is so hard", the report said.
