    oh I never really got to know this girl, but it haunts me to see now that she basically had the same mentality as me.

    Im not sure if this has been posed but it was a comment on a posting a while back:

    "I lived in South Korea for four years and recently returned. I was in Korea during the suicide of three famous actresses, one famous actor, the ex-president and numerous other lesser known people such as students with poor exam results and even a woman on my boyfriend's apartment complex who jumped from her window as we slept due to stress. I can honestly say that suicide there is a HUGE problem. Even in 2009, it is still deemed by most Koreans as the respectful way to die and carries some honour with it strangely enough. As this happened in overseas in Paris to a more internationally known Korean maybe the government there will do a little more to try to curb this sad trend."

    the link was: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1229497/Topshop-model-Daul-Kim-dead-apparent-suicide-Paris-apartment.html

    The main part that caught my eye was "Even in 2009, it is still deemed by most Koreans as the respectful way to die and carries some honour with it strangely enough".

    Awe, poor soul! I wish she could have sought help if her death turns out to be suicide.

    I feel like Daul has grown up her whole life knowing she was different than most. Though when I say different my own perception is positive but to much of society different is foreign and threatening. Becuase of this I feel like Daul was too much of her own person to ever give that up, too much of an individual, and too close and introspective to her true self to ever let herself conform to the desires of society. It's too easy to do that. It's harder to be on your own and honest with yourself. Daul never belonged anywhere concrete. She lived in a constant limbo between the reality she knew and the reality that everybody else seemed to believe. My interpretation of her at least. But what do I know? I didn't know her. I can only make my own assumptions from what I've perceived. Regardless, she was special.

    i feel terrible about the whole thing, with my other favourite model Ruslana Korshunova passed way for like a year or so, this news does arrive my doorstep in a really bitter way.

    R.I.P Daul, we will always miss you, life would be better for you now and you will never be alone.

    :(
    I'm still pretty shocked :cry:
    It just goes to show .. no matter what type of body you have or what life you lead , how many friends you have.. you arent guarenteed happiness. :cry:
    I often here a lot of my peers say , "I'd be so much happier if I had a models body .. longer legs , clearer skin etc" .. obviouslly it doesnt guarantee hapiness.. it all goes back to the saying "we always want what we don't have"

    Daul.. :cry:

    Paying my respects in the only way I can:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I did these two sketches last night based on her recent editorials. Mixed media with pencils, cartoon markers and oil pastels.

    She left behind a legacy of beautiful pictures so we can remember her the way she was.

    While I was browsing through pictures I'd draw, I noticed how sharp eyes she had. As someone mentioned earlier, those who are sensitive are hurt by the world most.

    I still can't believe she's gone.
    She will definitely be remembered not only as a model, but a very intelligent individual.
    May you find your happiness, Daul.
