From Debut to International Acclaim

"In a shocking turn of events, Lee Sun-Kyun, acclaimed for his role in 'Parasite,' was found dead in an apparent suicide, leaving fans in disbelief."

A graduate of South Korea’s prestigious Korea National University of Arts, Lee made his acting debut in 2001 in a television sitcom titled “Lovers.” Over the years, he gained acclaim for versatile roles, including a charismatic chef and a diligent architectural engineer betrayed by his spouse.

Globally recognized for his portrayal of the wealthy and shallow patriarch in the 2019 Oscar-winning film “Parasite,” Lee’s last film, “Sleep,” released this year, received critical acclaim and was featured in the Critics’ Week section at the Cannes festival.

The actor is survived by his wife, actress Jeon Hye-jin, and two sons.
