Police believe Son Ho Young's girlfriend's death was suicide, will perform autopsy to confirm
Even though the police are almost certain that there was no foul play involved in the death of Son Ho Young's girlfriend, they will be performing an autopsy to be 100% sure.
The Gangnam Police Station said, "Currently, there doesn't appear to be any foul play in the death of Son Ho Young's girlfriend. However, since there is a lot of attention focused on this case, we are planning to perform an autopsy. We have convinced the family of the deceased to allow an autopsy to be conducted so we can clear up all doubts."
In the car, the police found a fire pot where she burned 3 coal briquettes, an empty bottle of sleeping pills, and 2 cartons of soju, as well as a notebook that seems to hint at suicide. The police reported, "In cases of murder, bruises usually form when the victim fights back. However, the body was completely clean. In the notebook that was found, it does not specify that it is a will, but it contains words that people who commit suicide usually write. The handwriting also matches the woman's."
The police don't have any plans at this time to summon Son Ho Young for further questioning, and have confirmed that they'll be requesting his presence only if it's deemed necessary.

Actor Ryu Shi Won indicted for GPS tracking and violence against his wife
Actor Ryu Shi Won has been indicted for illegally tracking his wife by means of a GPS tracker, as well as getting violent and assaulting her.
The actor is currently under the suspicion of attaching a GPS tracker to trace his wife Ms. Cho (29)'s whereabouts for 8 months. It is said the tracker was attached when her car was in an auto repair shop back in May 2011.
In August of the same year, Ms. Cho discovered the GPS tracker and when she requested that her husband remove the device, Ryu Shi Won allegedly became angry and reportedly threatened her stating, "Do you find me laughable. You will die by my hands," and slapped his wife's face multiple times. He is also said to have added, "I know a lot of scoundrels. I can get photos taken of you capturing what you are doing and where you're going. I am not a person to mess with." Ryu Shi Won was also found to have secretly installed a tracking application on his wife's cell phone to keep track of her every move.
In response to all this, the actor posted on his Facebook, "I know that there are times when the truth is unfairly buried, but this is just not right... Let's take this until the end. For the truth," revealing his determination to fight this out in the courts.
Ryu Shi Won and Ms. Cho tied the knot in 2010 and filed for divorce in March 2012. Ms. Cho then filed a complaint to the police against her husband for threats and assault against her this past February. The two are in the midst of a lawsuit as they weren't able to work out a divorce settlement.
SECRET removed as guest performer at various university events
Things haven't been so great for SECRET after Hyosung's controversy with her unintentional misuse of the word democratization. Though the idol star has already explained herself and apologized, not everyone is sympathetic.
According to reports, some of the requests SECRET received from various university events were canceled. TS Entertainment revealed on May 21 that Sogang University, Hanyang University, and Sungkyunkwan University had all withdrawn their offers for SECRET to appear as a guest performer at the schools.
A rep from Sogang University commented "After the controversy arose, we discussed with the agency about [SECRET's] appearance... However, with the next day being 5.18 Gwangju Democratization Movement, the agency as well as the students of the university all felt uncomfortable with the group's appearance, and thus arrived at this decision."
However, despite this setback, the agency also added that there are other college events that the girls will still be appearing on.
SECRET's Hyosung tears up while apologizing to the crowd at KAIST University
After her multiple apologizes, Hyosung stepped on stage to apologize yet again.
She stood on stage at KAIST University, one of the universities that hadn't canceled their invitation for SECRET to perform.
Before the girls started their performance, she said, "Before we perform, I want to apologize." The majority of the crowd was supportive of her, shouting, "Don't! You don't have to! It's okay!"
Their support made Hyosung tear up, and she had to swallow back tears before she continued, "I'm really sorry that I worried you because of my rash words recently. As a celebrity, it was a very bad mistake for me to use a word that's been wrongly twisted on the internet. I'm reflecting on my wrongdoing. I'm going to study and work hard to keep getting better. I'm going to work harder today because I'm so sorry, so please support us. Thank you."
Suzy comes to tears when asked about her nickname '10 Billion Won Girl'
Suzy, who normally greets fans with her bright smile as the 'nation's first love', left fans concerned when she suddenly burst into tears during her press conference for 'Book of the House of Gu'.
During the event held at the Ilsan Dream Center on the 20th, when asked about the rumors of earning a whole lot of money from her CFs and being referred to as the '10 billion KRW (~9 million USD) Girl', Suzy cautiously shared, "I am really thankful. As I film more and more advertisements, my level of responsibility increases. I am being careful."
Seeing Suzy having a hard time phrasing her answer, Lee Seung Gi came to the rescue as he remarked, "Many assume that if you have a lot of endorsement deals, you are struck with riches, but that is not the case. My heart goes out to Suzy when I look at her because when she's not filming for the drama, she spends her off days on the set of advertisements. It seems like she doesn't have time to rest. Although people will say 10 billion KRW, as someone who's also heard stories concerning my endorsement deals, I can tell you that the real pay is not up to that amount," defending Suzy against those who negatively refer to her '10 Billion Won Girl'.
Hearing Lee Seung Gi speak, and touched by his concern and understanding of her situation, tears started to fall from Suzy's eyes, and the event came to bit of a halt as the hardworking idol cried.
While Lee Seung Gi and her fellow co-stars consoled her, Suzy apologetically said, "I'm sorry. I don't know why I cried."
