On June 24, police reported that they received an emergency call from actor Kim Sung Min's son, who told police, "My father is beating my mother." 

Once the police arrived on the scene, Kim Sung Min's wife and son told police, "It was a minor argument" and left the home, saying they would spend the night at her parent's place. 

About 10 minutes after, the wife called police again, saying, "My husband often talks about killing himself if he drinks. When we were arguing before, he said we should separate, so I'm worried that he might do something out of hand", and asked them to check the home once more. 

At 1:55 PM KST on June 24, police discovered Kim Sung Min attempting to commit suicide by hanging his neck on a necktie in the bathroom. 

Kim Sung Min was transported to the hospital immediately, but continues to be in a comatose state, with just his pulse beating. 

In both 2011 and 2015, Kim Sung Min was charged with illegal use of philopon (a form of methamphetamine). He served 2 years and 6 months in prison for his first charge, and served 10 months in prison on top of a 4 year of probation sentence for his second charge. The actor had been released from his 10 month sentence back in January of 2016.

    I only saw him on Can We Get Married (2012). I'm surprised that his role there is ALMOST the same in what he's been going through in real life. My prayer goes for his soul and his family.

    Even after being hit by him his wife called and ended up probably saving his life. She is a good wife. I hope he recovers and gets help.

    Not only that, apparently his wife is a dentist. They got married in 2013 after he was discharged from prison for drug reason..

    Well he's dead now, so he will never have the opportunity to make amends.

    This is why people should receive counseling either during prison sentences for drug use or directly after. Addiction is not always just addiction but an attempt to deal with other emotional issues that aren't being treated or dealt with properly.

    I definitely agree. If someone is going to be released from prison, shouldn't you ensure that they're not dangerous (both to themselves and others). Even then, addiction itself is a medical disorder (drug abuse, alcoholism, etc.), so why is it never treated as one? People who require medication in prisons are usually given it but many mental health issues are ignored.
