During a government crackdown, the actor was questioned three times by police on suspicion of illegal drug usage, with one session lasting 19 hours over the weekend. According to Yonhap, the actor said he was duped into taking narcotics by a bartender who was blackmailing him.

Authorities discovered Lee during a search prompted by a missing person complaint, a fire official told Reuters on condition of anonymity because the case is sensitive. Yonhap reported earlier, citing police, that Lee was discovered in a vehicle in a Seoul park after his manager notified authorities that the actor had left home, leaving an apparent suicide note. It was previously said that his wife had reported the event.

Violations of South Korea’s harsh drug laws impose a maximum term of 14 years in jail or six months in detention for repeat offenders and dealers.

“Parasite,” a dark-comedy thriller directed by Bong Joon-ho, won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature Film in 2020, after receiving six Oscar nominations. The film was also awarded the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, making it the first South Korean film to do so. Lee and the ensemble of “Parasite” won a Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding ensemble Performance in a Motion Picture.

Lee portrays Mr. Park in the film, whose luxurious house is penetrated by members of a lower-class family acting as highly skilled domestic staff in a complicated conspiracy that ends in a bloodbath.

Lee, who was born in 1975, has been in South Korean films such as the 2012 thriller “Helpless” and the 2014 drama “All About My Wife.” He also starred in Apple TV’s first Korean-language original series, which premiered in 2021.

“Dr. Brain,” a six-episode sci-fi thriller, told the story of a cold-hearted doctor searching for solutions to a strange family disaster through brain studies. Lee is married to award-winning actress Jeon Hye-jin, with whom he has two daughters.
