U-Nee: Became known to Malaysians when her pictures were mistakenly used for murdered Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu.

PETALING JAYA: South Korean actress and pop singer U-Nee was found hanged in her home last Sunday.

The online version of the South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo reported that the 26-year-old singer’s grandmotherfound her body in her 22nd-floor apartment in Seo-gu, Incheon.

U-Nee is believed to have been suffering from depression.

U-Nee – real name Hur Youn, but who performed under the stage name Lee Hye-ryeon – became known to Malaysians when her pictures were mistakenly used for murdered Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaaribuu.

The pictures were widely circulated via e-mail.

Several newspapers here and in Singapore ran the pictures but Altantuya’s father Shaaribuu Setev, when he was in Kuala Lumpur last year to help in police investigations, clarified that the pictures were not that of his daughter.
