M.Street loses its lead singer to suicide
On December 1, the body of singer Lee Seo-hyun, lead singer of vocal pop group M.Street, was found in a recording studio. The death has been ruled as a suicide by hanging.
The primary cause was deemed to be failed stock investments. One source explained that he had invested large amounts of money from friends and sunbaes in stocks, but lost it in the recent stock market crash(es). While there are likely other factors related to his suicide, this is being considered the primary one. Apparently he had been overwhelmed with the stress, although he been attempting to find ways to rectify the matter as recently as the day before his suicide.
Lee Seo-hyun (born Lee Jong-hyun) was 30 years old. M.Street was a five-member vocal group that debuted in 2004 and put out singles “Noel’s Gift,” “Start,” and “Tension.” Its members had been in recent preparations to release a new album, and Lee was said to feel the brunt of the stress of their comeback as the group’s leader.
A letter was found with Lee, expressing that he was sorry to his parents, siblings, and loved ones. His body has been transferred to a hospital in Seoul, and the memorial visits will take place in Lee’s hometown of Suwon.
Before I leave you to your comments, let me say that I don’t usually delete or moderate my comments much, but if you’re going to bust out with “Suicide is selfish” comments, I WILL lay down the smack. Obviously if one is in enough pain to contemplate suicide, one is NOT capable of the logical thought processes that might prevent such acts. There’s no use in being angry at the suicide victim when he’s the greatest victim in all this. Just sayin’.
