I take any reports of suicide and/or such attempts very seriously especially in South Korea which has one of the highest suicide rates in the world thanks to a combination of cultural reasons and a high pressure environment to succeed. This week is off to a scary start with a K-ent news report that actor Lee Joon attempted suicide while in the army. The report said that Lee Joon showed his superior injuries where he tried to slash his wrist and was sent to a special division in the army. Lee Joon’s agency quickly responded to deny that report and claimed it was all made up, and that Lee Joon’s family is upset with the false news of a suicide attempt. While I hope to god it is false news, even the possibility that it is true and Lee Joon must be so depressed to attempt suicide is alarming and I hope in any case he’s doing fine.
