    1. After her friend Sulli's suicide in October, siya na naman. Hindi na siguro nakaya ang series of unfortunate events sa life niya.

      She was in the news before because of physical altercation with her then non-showbiz BF. Afterwards, Sulli's suicide then siya na. :(

    2. Sa mga di nakakaalam, she was severely assaulted by her ex-boyfriend more than a year ago. You can google her medical report to know what kind of horrors he inflicted on her. Then he made her kneel down to him and made her beg not to release their sex tape because he threatened to ruin her. She was physically and mentally and emotionally abused. RIP Hara. May justice be served.

    4. long before maglabasan ang mga issues about scandals ng mga kpop and suicides ng mga artist, since matagal n ko nanood ng kdrama at marami ako crush na actors, ive been hearing a lot about koream men as a bf/partners, they are scary daw to be a partner. I actually dont understand in what aspect they scary. So with a lot of issues ive been hearing these days, mukhang nkakatakot nga sila

    2. Nakakalungkot kasi pangkaraniwan na lang sa mga Korean celebrities ang nade-depress at nagsu-sucide. Although depression sometimes is also caused by chemical imbalance, may mga suicide cases na ang dahilan ay hopelessness. Kaya, hanga din ako sa resilience ng mga Pinoy...nabagyo na,at nagutom, nagkasakit, gumuho Ang bahay at minsan namatayan pero tuloy pa rin ang laban.

  5. Sad. Although we all saw it coming. She went through so much this year. Not her first attempt. Then Sulli passed away. We'll miss you Hara.

  6. She attempted already prior to Sulli’s incident but survived. It’s sad it had to come to this in the end. I really wish things like these will stop happening. Not only in the KPop community but around the world as well. I hope we’ll all try to be more connected and kinder to one another. Hugs.

    7. Pinoy ako and yet suicidal kami ng brother ko and pinsan ko. I have scars sa left wrist. I survived because my parents brought me to the pyschologist. Brother ko hindi kaya kaya ang treatment nya sa psychiatrist. My cousin walang support sa fam nya ayun sinusumpong pa din minsan toxic na. My best friend in college nag take ng maraming pain reliever at suicide attempt na nga talaga kaso nagising pa din sya. Marami din dito sa Pilipinas. Hindi lang masyadong tanggap pa or halata.

    2. Knetz and many others are irrationally vicious to anyone, anything, and everything. Most notably, they never learn from what happened to Jonghyun and Sulli (only a few of the many individuals who committed suicide due to bullying online and offline).

    3. Anon 2:29am di kasi sila Christian, Buddhist ata sila o Taoist at madalas naniniwala sila na may "next life" pa sila. Kita mo naman what kind of belief they have sa mga themes ng KDrama nila like yung Goblin tapos yung latest na Hotel del Luna.
      Unlike dito sa atin sa Pinas na maraming Christian kaya bihira may suicidal cases.

    4. Siguro dahil hirap or toxic yung showbiz and music industry dun. Pansin niyo ba na sa si sandara e palaging andito sa pinas para siguro makahinga dahil nakakasakal yung ginagalawan nilang industry dun. Unlike dito na parang si sandara e obvious na mas relax at nakakapag-enjoy talaga. Hindi malayong mangyari na baka bumalik si sandara ang her family permanently dito sa pinas, siguro nag-iipon lang para dito na makapagstay talaga.

      If the religion has nothing to with it?bkit yung iba nagtangka na magpakamatay, or dumaan na sa mental illness, napapanood ko, nagpapa interview sinasabi nila, nakilala nila si lord, kung hndi dahil kay god at thanked god im become a christian, kung purely sakit sa pag iisip lang talaga? Bkit pag may mental illness ka, purely chemical imbalance, pero pag okey na, punta naman sila kay god, ano ba talaga?

    8. Roman Catholic ako. Explained ko sa taas marami kaming suicidal sa paligid ko pinsan ko bestfriend and brother.naalala ko pati client ko nagkwento 2 sa anak nya nagdaan din dun sila mayaman. Pinoy din. Kami hindi mayaman so walang explanation yan. Pero pag nagundergo ng treatment medyo nakakatulong. May sumpong pa din ako pero dahil may support system ako surviving pa din. Buhay pa din. Hirap iexplain. Kaya maraming ayaw magpatreatment sa Pilipinas kasi jinajudge agad.

    9. 10:45, wla yan s religion

    10. Actually, studies show that people who are religious are LESS likely to commit suicide than people who do not practice religion or go to church. I am not saying walang Catholic or Protestant na nagpakamatay...they are just LESS likely to commit suicide because they believe than committing suicide will cause one's soul eternal condemnation. I am not 1045 by the way, but I agree with him/her na Buddhist believe in reincarnation kaya mas madali sa kanila ang nagpakamatay.

    11. Ako si 10:45am, very-well said anon 12:16pm. Kasi andun yung may takot ka sa Diyos at alam mong SIN ang to take your own life like suicide, kaya pansin nyo di man lahat pero karamihan sa may faith kay God ay todo tiis sa mga trials at nakapit lang sa faith kay God and it works naman. Which most Koreans ay di Christian kaya sila ganyan na karamihan ay feeling miserable compare sa mga Pinoy na halos lahat naniniwala sa Diyos kaya LESSER suicidal rate dito.

  11. Di kaya May kinalaman sa frame of mind ng mga ito yung mga enhancements na ginawa sa kanila. It can be that these enhancements make them feel that the people adore you for what you have become physically and not for who or what you really are. Nawawala na yung self worth mo at kung meron it is based on what and how your fans perceive you. I used to work in an organization that had Korean consultants. The men can be so deplorable in how they berate women and employees. I wonder how these KPop talents are treated by their management.

    3. I read something about how Some K pop stars are signed up in a contract, wherein 1) they have to live in a dorm uprooted from family, thus family support is withdrawn, 2) plastic surgery is required for their “job” in show business, 3) exposed to a business with access to drugs, 4) I don’t know whether they have a strong spirituality whatever religion they belong to, 5) “manufactured perfection” in social media is the norm, wherein di Na yung totoong authentic/ tunay Na ikaw ang minamahal mo at ng mundo, Kundi superficiality lang lahat ang mahalaga. 6) Plus, whatever curve ball life decides to give you, such as an illness,social stressors, etc.
      There can be more factors that prevent suicide, but among these, importante ang pamilya, mga kaibigan, communication with trusted people or professionals, spiritual connection, your purpose in life, counting your blessings, etc. RIP

  14. Fame in general can destroy you unless you know how to manage it...look at Disney stars. When the screams fade and the lights turn off it’s just you, and some people can’t handle that. Hara’s depression was accumulated, I’m sure from way way back pa. Na-trigger pa ng husto due to recent events. RIP Hara.

  15. She was emotionally and sexually abused by her ex-boyfriend. Even after she filed a lawsuit and sent him to jail she continued to receive hate from Korean netizens and got called names. Now her ex is out there living freely and ang netizens hugas-kamay. Sobrang unfair lang ng buhay lalo na sa mga babae.

  17. K artists man o ordinary citizen, mataas talaga ang suicide rate sa Korea. Sobra kasi ang pressure sa society nilanto succeed. Maski ang school system nila patayan. Malakas ang economy dahil grabe ang disiplina pero di kakayanin ng simpleng tao which often leads to mental issues.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yes, nagtataka rin ako how their industry work bakit ang daming suicidal? Pero medyo mahirap rin kase parang pag dumating yung time na hindi na sila mabenta, i mean as a group, disbanded na. So dapat as an artist flexible sila pero ayun lang siempre may ibang di kaya yung nawaley ka sa limelight. Parang ayun dapat yung matutunan ng korean artists, otherwise madali talaga sila ma- depressed.

  19. May shelf life kase sa korea mga artists eh..lalo na babae. Bihira lng ung mga sikat pa din uptil now..ung nagtatagal like song hye ko..lalo na sa kpop kse pag nag reach kna ng 28 pataas sa kanila matanda na yun..kumbaga downhill kna. Kaya takot sila tumanda saka mawalan ng fans pag ganun age na..isa pa & feeling ko pinka important part, most of them are not like us sa pinas na catholic o christians na alam natin pag nag suicide eh..impyerno na for sure ang punta. Kumabaga may matindi tayong takot sa diyos..
