Police suspect that 'Lotte' vice chairman Lee In Won committed suicide after receiving reports from local residents that a man in his 60s was hanging from a tree. His car was found near the site of the incident, along with a suicide note addressing his family and his company. 


Lee was found to have been under investigation for several allegations, including playing a critical role in 'Lotte' Group's alleged tax evasions, creating slush funds, and other shady deals between the group and affiliates.

    Same. The whole set-up is coming to me. I imagine Seo In GUk being responsible for this elaborate revenge scene.

    He chose to end his life rather than facing the consequences to his actions. For the better or for the worse is up to your own opinion.

    You know you watch too many K-Dramas when your first reaction is to think this suicide is shady and could be a murder.

    From what I've seen in dramas I suppose the police will be able to find out if it was murder or suicide real quick. I mean, if they actually want to, you know. :\
