RIP is all I can say and probably all I'll be able to say about this tragedy.

But it was not sure how her friend has entered Daul Kim’s locked apartment.

Wasn't it her boyfriend who found her? He probably had a key.
Or he hadn't heard from her and she wasn't answering her door so he broke in.

Yah I thought it was her boyfriend that found her too...

Yep. According to nymag it was her boyfriend.

Either way, :(

oh god you guys. the thought that her parents had to go on a who-knows-how-many hours flight... knowing that their daughter is dead and that's what they'll be coming to just shatters me. D:

burying your own child has got to be the most tragic thing.

plus there are lots of papers and permits you need to get in order to send a corpse from one country to another.

The dad of a friend of one of my sisters died in germany and it took the insurance company, embassy and family and friends like a week to complete the paper work in order to get the body.
dolus_specialis 20th-Nov-2009 11:01 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking the exact same thing :(

My granny has lost two children (in past few years). She said a parent should never have to experience that.
radical_ed57 20th-Nov-2009 10:56 pm (UTC)
It just makes me feel worse that were signs.
radical_ed57 20th-Nov-2009 10:57 pm (UTC)
*there were
xcherryblossomx 20th-Nov-2009 10:57 pm (UTC)

princess_pc 20th-Nov-2009 11:06 pm (UTC)
her bf that refused to be recognized as a bf but a friend.
xcherryblossomx 20th-Nov-2009 11:12 pm (UTC)
oh that french guy she mentioned oncee
princess_pc 20th-Nov-2009 11:36 pm (UTC)
yup. i think that's the one.
falsie 20th-Nov-2009 10:58 pm (UTC)
The signs were there.
I wish someone had noticed earlier.
bellaprincess9 20th-Nov-2009 11:00 pm (UTC)
How is this article different from the one posted earlier?
princess_pc 20th-Nov-2009 11:06 pm (UTC)
the first part ;P
shanny_w 20th-Nov-2009 11:10 pm (UTC)
Mostly that it hasn't been confirmed how she died. Well officially.

It's terrifying how fragile the human mind's positive perception of life is.

Poor girl...I hope she rests in peace.

You couldn't pay me enough to become a star. Perfection is what they seek and when it's not reached something bad happens. It breaks my heart when you hear about stars committing suicide because it's the only way out they can think of.
kurikuribebi 20th-Nov-2009 11:14 pm (UTC)
I'm soo divided on this issue! Part of me believes that when you decide you want to be famous, you also have to prepare to handle the pressure. You should know what's coming at this point in the game. So if you can't handle it, it's your own fault.

But at the same time I'm thinking, where do fans come off being so critical? When are the standards going to change?
dream_a_dreamer 20th-Nov-2009 11:44 pm (UTC)
Most likely the standards won't change. All of us see our favorite stars to be something more than normal even though we won't admit it so to see something less than the perfection might make us so critical of everything they do.

It's true if you can't stand the heat stay out of the game, same with stardom. I just wish that someone saw the signs and got her some help or any star help that needed it. Or just cared enough to give her a hug and say that things will get better.

finalfantasyo13 21st-Nov-2009 12:05 am (UTC)
terrible.....just too soon..
also, i was really thinking about this whole situation yesterday when the news came out, and i actually had the thought that she might of hung herself...:(((
curls975 21st-Nov-2009 12:38 am (UTC)
i need to stop looking at her posts.

it just makes me wanna cry. and i am NOT the crying type.

aibashi 21st-Nov-2009 12:43 am (UTC)
i don't even know what to say, she's going to be really missed, she was such a refreshing model to see around. ♥

suicide sucks

I kind of still don't believe it for some reason. I mean, it hasn't hit me or something. When i first saw the article I was waiting for a blog entry from her or something saying that people are weird to claim that she died..
I guess I'm in shock, I never realized how awesome I thought she was or something..........
superlovelove 21st-Nov-2009 07:28 am (UTC)

i was expecting it to be fake too~ :(
i wasn't intensely into her, but i thought she was insightful and going places - i'd read her blog, but never comment....

i wonder if anything would change if all the people who read her blog actually commented...

(her usual entries have only a few comments) DDD;
invisibelle 21st-Nov-2009 04:33 am (UTC)

I missed this.

okay this explains why i was seeing her on the korean news in the jjimjilbang earlier. but the sound wasn't on so i was like "oh that's that model, she must be getting really popular"


thenylonkid 21st-Nov-2009 04:59 am (UTC)
*hanged....we ain't talking about dicks or pictures here.

So sad! I can't claim to be a fan but I knew of her and thought she was awesome ;_;

Rest in peace...

After seeing the comments on getting help, I'm a little split on this, whether anyone could have spotted signs and helped her avoid this. When you're a child it's different because you live with your parents and they're supposed to see you everyday, but as a working adult in a foreign country, perhaps her friends were also busy and didn't see her often. So she would just be with people in the modelling agency or the stylists and photographers, who see overworked and stressed people everyday, who are perhaps overworked and stressed themselves and they would just ignore the 'signs' because they have work to do.

Sometimes the signs are hard to spot. If she never says anything too extreme. In fact, she didn't seem depressed at all, she was perfectly healthy and her vitality came through in photographs. She was working well, you'd think depressed people can't work.

The thing is, now everyone everywhere is just too busy and nobody talks about this sort of thing. And you can't even say it's Korean society because she's in Paris and socializing with people who do the same sort of thing, and she didn't seem like a conservative person.

It's very sad. I was shocked when I saw the cut on monitor yesterday. And then I went back and looked at all the photoshoots I ignored before and felt weird.

O.O Oh my.
hunt4me 21st-Nov-2009 06:34 am (UTC)
whoaa, I'm like, so behind (by 2 weeks, again)...
and I just remember reading things about how Daul Kim just had a shoot with whomever, blah blah blah. So this really took me by surprise.

She died too soon
