I apologize for making an assumption. However, it is the number one way to commit suicide in Korea because firearms are completely illegal to the public. And the government's stupid way to deter from committing suicide by hanging is to constantly remind the public constantly that it is a "slow and painful death" and who ever considers it deserves to feel the disgrace of such depressed feeling. It has become such a major part of Korean society that it is not uncommon for someone to be told to hang themselves if they are deemed imperfect. It is also in the culture to suck up all your feelings and simply deal with things you have to do for the sake of making a living. We grow up with it, even when moving to other countries, we are still forced to live up to our parent's old traditions and thinking, and perfection is the only acceptable thing. I just hope that Korea fixes this cultural situation, because it is such a tragedy when perfectly beautiful people are forced to commit suicide because of life's stresses, even how trivial some of the reasons are.

And you know what's even more sad? Korean Entertainment are just now talking about her.... They really could care less about her personal story or life. All they cared about was that she was Korean and working overseas. Although, they hated the fact that she didn't make Korea her permanent residence, which they assumed was her way of turning her back on Korea. You'd think someone as successful as her would be talked about in her home country, sadly no because they're fond of the "models" who work strictly in the country.

say hi to korean bullies read this
seriously korean ppl
stop bullying me
because
u know what

i have a life

i dont owe you anything
and you dont own me

i dont mean harm, and im just happy to share
my point of views or what i like, its not to offend or to be punk


i respect korean culture as much as possible
im proud to be korean

sometimes i can be ab noxious i know,

but nudity in fashion can't be considered ab noxious

ok did i ever have a dirty scandal? no
did i ever slut around ? no
is i-D porn? no


do you guys bitch when you see a Caucasian model nude?
a japanese girl nude? a black girl nude?
and when its korean girl nude, you guys get mad angry
and i can be blonde, red, pink haired if i want. im not trying to be anything else
i have every right to do what i want. if a white girl colours her hair black, do u say "oh shes trying to be asian"?

its so silly to restrict korean girl has to be a certain way
this is superiority complex and complex is not .... flattering


its 2009 , it aint the 70's we dont have 11pm curfew and skirt length regulations

Korea is Korea. its not the world...

and before im korean,

IM ME.

dont be sad or mad because i change
people change! and move on! i grew. and i wont ask you to change
but i AM going to ask for your understandings.


im not gonna say sorry for living my life...

Exactly my point sethii. Korean media is worse than the English media. They are downright cruel to celebrities. They are treated as objects and the studios practically own them; controlling every single part of your life, even to the point of controlling your love life and whether or not you can come out as a homosexual in public because female fans are the majority.

OMG, it's such a bad news. I've just guessed what happened.
She has an editorial in latest Vogue Korea and when I was reading comments about her ed every post had this smile - . I didn't know what happened. And now I read and I really feel bed. I didn't know much about her career but she was beautiful girl.

I wish they hadn't closed the Daul Kim thread itself, I'm sure more of her work will come out in months to come, and old work too, and there should be a place to post it and see it, other than a RIP thread.

^ Her thread will be opened at a later date, in the same way we dealt with Ruslana's threads.
