Eunjoo Lee was the famous actor in South Korea. She is 25 years old but she died in February 22nd, 2005. She committed suicide without telling anybody. According to the articles, it suddenly happened. Many doctors are saying that probably the reason that she decided to committee suicide was because of her movie.
Here is more story about Eunjoo Lee’s sad story, committing suicide. One article that has an interview with Eunjoo’s brother told us the truth about Eunjoo’s committing suicide. As I summarize his speech, “She went to her cousin’s high school graduation to celebrate in the morning of the day when she committed suicide. Eunjoo and I came back home around noon and Eunjoo had lunch together with me and with our mom. After lunch, at 2’o clock, she quietly went into her room on the second floor and my mom and I had a conversation downstairs. While we were talking, we didn’t know what was happening on the second floor and we kept talking about my cousin's graduation. Finally the conversation ended around 3:30 and Eunjoo didn’t appear for an hour and half so I went upstairs to see what she was doing. I still didn’t know what was going on in her room while I was opening her door. When I opened the door, I was surprised, frightened and didn’t know what to do. I felt that I lost energies to yell. What would you do if your sibling died right in front of you? My sister, Eunjoo was in her closet with the belt around her neck. I knew that she committed suicide.” According to the article, Eunjoo had to earn much more money because her mother had very much debt. So Eunjoo decided to be the main character of one movie that she didn’t even want to be. She had to wear the clothes that she didn’t want to then she felt bad and also alone, so she committed suicide.
One of the movies that Eunjoo Lee was the main character is Taegeuki Hwinallimeo. Eunjoo Lee was a wife of another main character. This movie is about the war that happened a long time ago and made grandparents in Korea sad. It was also very popular so many people feel bad for Eunjoo Lee that she died. The other movie is called ‘The Scarlet Letter’. This is an adult movie but was very popular. This is the movie that Eunjoo Lee took for the money and forced her to committee suicide. The last one is not the movie, but the drama. It’s called ‘Firebird’. Eunjoo Lee became very famous in this drama.
Eunjoo Lee’s best friends, who are also the actor and singer said that they still can’t believe that Eunjoo committed suicide. Even they were the best friends, they said they didn’t know that was going to happen. “Eunjoo always tried to smile and make us smile so that we didn’t know she was sad or she was going to committee suicide. We still can’t believe it.” They said. There’s another man who is a singer and was good friend with Eunjoo. He didn’t sing for a while after Eunjoo committed suicide. One day in October, when he came back to the stage to sing, he announced that he’s going to make a song that’s for Eunjoo. “Even she died, all of us still miss her and I’m going to sing a song for her this December.” He said. We all can know how much people miss her, and we also can know how Eunjoo made people surprised and sad.
