It has been reported that Daul's boyfriend, who remains anonymous, was the one who reported the incident to the police, since he found her hanged in her apartment in Paris. Results from the investigation suggest that she committed suicide. Daul's mother flew over to Paris after receiving the unfortunate news. Netizens are speculating that this suicide was caused by the pressures of the fashion industry.

Utterly tragic. My thoughts and prayers to everyone involved and the whole world...

Below, not all my words but seen elsewhere and also not directed at this awful tragedy, but please I hope some light somewhere may come on now..

"It is not always those that we think are in trouble, not always the quiet recluse or the loud angry drunk. It is not always the poor or rich, the underachiever of over achiever, the abused or confused. It may be, it may not, but sometimes it can be the successful, so apparently happy, wonderful person right next to you.

Just stop for a moment in your busy lives, your own problems, your own happiness, your own worlds and look around, not far but near. Don't assume, don't poke nor prod, don't discuss with others, just think, just think that what you see in people around you may not be what is. Listen, look with such heightened sensitivity that your senses and emotions are stretched taut. Listen between the lines, between the laughs, between the lies, between the truths. Listen and just be there, be there, be there for that person, quietly, an open ear and heart, unconditionally and spend time with thoughts not of yourself."

look around..

I love Daul's blog.

I'll link it again

http://iliketoforkmyself.blogspot.com/

And now that the noise has subsided a little-

I'm not going to say Daul was a poet or that in her cultural discernment she made a fine editor. Rather I say her blog showed the way in how a model can take back her identity by owning the means of cultural production. Daul's blog shows what a model can be. If s/he wants.

What do I mean? Well consider how, even in editorials, the norms of the old world print title system (and all the structures clustering around it - the agency system etc) render models voiceless. Just empty vessels, doll-like, to be dressed and presented as the all-knowing editors, art directors, stylists and photographers decree. And oftentimes who in fact on a shoot is the person who actually knows best what's cool - yes, the person conferred the least cultural power amongst the team - the model. But the system renders him/her little more than a mere surface. Daul's blog transcended all that.

If Daul is to have a legacy it should be that a model can be so, so, much more than an empty clotheshorse for dollarpoundeuro. The model blog as radical cultural form. The net is all about cutting out legions of pointless middlemen. Pare down for efficiency. The movement of advertising spend from print titles straight to model blogs. Of course it's all about traffic. But if it's 'now' cultural enlightenment you want, a model blog like Daul's will nourish far more than the purchase of a print title. I for one have stopped buying print titles but I haven't stopped viewing model blogs. Especially those as interesting and thought provoking as Daul's. That's where advertisers will find me. You? Forget old world 'status'. It's all about content. And authenticity.

Someone suggested the industry should do something to mark Daul's passing.
I like the fact that over the last couple of days we have congregated at Daul's blog to pay our respects and understand a little better the beautiful mind of one of history's greatest models. That congregating is enough for me.

Although, of course, let the tributes continue. Many with 2 second attention spans will tweet off to the next piece of undifferentiated 'news'. But others will know: Daul is important.

I just hope Daul's death will open the eyes of society.
This is true. There were Korean celebrities who committed suicide before.

Is anyone living in Korea...what has the reaction and coverage been like? I'm guessing she was a big enough star to warrant lots of attention...?
