Lovelyz's Jisoo Opens Up About Her Depression During Their Concert

unfortunately, i can't find the original tweet, so i hope the translated version is okay, mods. it breaks my heart knowing that she doesn't have anyone to talk to & that she feels extremely low on herself. the hashtag (#서지수사랑해) is trending, so hopefully she sees that she is loved. If you need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to do so. You can contact a direct hotline number (which I will put under a cut because the list is long).

oh my god :( ilhsm and it's so upsetting that she doesn't have family she can rely on. i really hope she can open up more to her members, friends, etc. about her depression (or that they check on her) because she shouldn't sorry for it. she's always seemed like a really giving/outwardly happy person that doesn't want to "burden" others though :///
cosmicdaze 4th-Feb-2018 06:19 am (UTC)
this is such a massive cry for help i'm genuinely worried
angela_derp_otp 4th-Feb-2018 06:30 am (UTC)
I hope she gets help asap.

If her company won't get her help agter this, they are cruel idiots.
pearlychoco 5th-Feb-2018 08:40 am (UTC)
i give woollim credit for helping jisoo out during that rumor that spread like wildfire, but i wouldn't hold my breath regarding this one. this is the same company that led Tablo to fend for himself when the Stanford/Ilbe controversy happened.

Woollim wouldn't even help the members of their cash cow (Infinite) after several members admitted to having depression so don't hold your breath.
vintage_boom 4th-Feb-2018 07:07 am (UTC)
Idk if it sounds OTT but has there been talk in the lovelyz fandom to email their agency about taking this seriously?
neongoldtooth 4th-Feb-2018 07:23 am (UTC)
oh that makes me so sad.
she's the one that had those rumors started about her right?
i think i saw a thing where fans were saying they supported all but one member and she kind of joked about it but like wtf who says that to a member
pearlychoco 5th-Feb-2018 12:48 am (UTC)
she's the one that had those rumors started about her right?

yeah, that was her & why the f*ck would fans tell her (to her face) that they'll support the group except her? even though the rumor was fabricated, there are fans who don't acknowledge her because of it, and that saddens & aggravates me
timetobegin 4th-Feb-2018 07:26 am (UTC)
That she would blurt this out at their concert, apparently without knowledge of her bandmates, speaks volumes. I hope she receives the help she needs. The bit about her being hurt by fans and not knowing how to deal with it is something many idols probably go through and still they have to wear a happy face.... :/
bea_chan22 4th-Feb-2018 08:06 am (UTC)
From this point on, I hope she gets enough help and support.
gathyou 4th-Feb-2018 09:00 am (UTC)
Poor baby :(
I am so worried right now. She's such a sweetheart, and she's been dealing with so much for so long now... I can totally imagine her not wanting to burden the members with it, she already didn't talk much about how the false accusations impacted her since the girls were busy promoting and she wanted to show support instead.
Woollim needs to address it and find a way to get her more help :( (apparently they did during the accusations they can do it again)
I hope it's a bit of a wake up call for fans too, even if things had mellowed out a lot since she could join again, I wouldn't be surprised if some are still iffy about her.
This is so sad :(
kazu_kumaguro 4th-Feb-2018 11:14 am (UTC)
wait, she got no family? or she can't talk about it with her family?
misspoirot 4th-Feb-2018 11:58 am (UTC)
this is my exact question. Is it a mistranslation or she really has no family member?
yoonjeonghan 4th-Feb-2018 12:04 pm (UTC)
idk if there's just some meaning i'm missing but the korean tweet says "가족없어서" (because i have no family/lit. because family doesn't exist) so i guess? unless the twitter user misheard her
pearlychoco 5th-Feb-2018 12:07 am (UTC)
according to this site, she has a younger sister.

i'm guessing how it was translated, it seems like she can't talk about it with her family, which i can sadly relate to,
hillando 5th-Feb-2018 08:20 am (UTC)
could be she's talking about a community in general, in Korean the word for family is sometimes used in that context (ie. a fandom could be 'family', the people at your work could be 'family')
pearlychoco 5th-Feb-2018 08:31 am (UTC)
that could be possible as well
smilla_sini 4th-Feb-2018 01:05 pm (UTC)
She's been visibly down since December (before that she was better at hiding it I guess, even though if you watched their videos and listened to her you could see what's going on), even non-fans who saw their pics noticed it. Plus those idiots on twitter still post from bot accounts every hour or so about her leaving the group and ~revealing the truth~. Frankly, I don't expect much from woollim, they are morons, but if they don't wake up after this, they are seriously the worst.
audiograms 4th-Feb-2018 01:47 pm (UTC)
I love her so much I am scared for so many people (incl myself tbh) because one perons sui can often trigger others to do the same. I hope she is given a support system and that she can see she is loved.

i'm terribly sorry that you're going through a tough time rn. i hope you have a healthy and positive support system, as well as eating and drinking well. i'll be thinking and praying for you ♡

Thank you this is such a lovely message ❤❤❤
pearlychoco 6th-Feb-2018 01:30 am (UTC)
you're welcome ❤

if you need to talk or just someone who's willing to listen to your worries & concerns, i'm here.
maknaeroli 4th-Feb-2018 01:56 pm (UTC)
I hope she can find support somewhere, she’s been through so much with what happened around debut and I’m sure she’s never really had time to allow herself to cope from that just I hope she can talk to someone
sra_interesante 4th-Feb-2018 02:21 pm (UTC)
uuhh she's really brave
i dont know what else this industry needs to change their ways ... what happened to jjong should be a wake up call , those cry for help are never something to take lightly

i really hope she can find all the help she needs, nobody deserves to feel like this for so long
dior_chic 4th-Feb-2018 05:29 pm (UTC)
I hope she is able to get help :((((((( please!
lightframes 4th-Feb-2018 06:01 pm (UTC)
She sounds so devastated. I wish she didn't feel like she had to pretend to be strong. I hope someone is able to get through and talk to her.
revedesnuages 5th-Feb-2018 11:54 pm (UTC)
I know fans have started petitions after Jonghyun's death, but I wonder if there's any tangible way to pressure Korean companies to provide better mental health services to their employees.
