Two Korean Entertainers commited suicide in less than a week

I was shocked in the news again when I came home a few days ago and my hubby told me that the famous MBC sports newscaster Seong Ji Seon commited suicide. She jumped down from her 19th floor apartment building. I think she's very much upset, humiliated and depressed on what had happened. She was rumored to have been involved in a romantic relationship with Doosan Bears pitcher Im Tae-hoon that went sour. When the rumors refused to subside, Im Tae-hoon was demoted to a minor league team, and Song was temporarily suspended from the program. In an interview on Sunday, she admitted she met Im Tae-hoon in 2008 and the two fell in love. But Im Tae-hoon, who returned to the major league on Sunday, continues to deny the relationship.

Again, SG Wannabe's former member Chae Dong-ha was found dead Friday. Eunpyung police said that Chae, 30, committed suicide by hanging himself in his home in Bulkwang-don. "Chae has always suffered from depression", his agency stated. The late singer dropped out of the group SG Wannabe in 2008 and was working as a solo artist.
