Actor Kim Seok-kyun commits suicide
Yikes. And I was hoping we’d left those tragedies behind last year… (I debated whether to post this, as Kim Seok-kyun is not known and has a very sparse resumé — an internet search reveals almost nothing about his work. His death, sadly, is making news not so much because he is famous — he isn’t — but because it continues the chain of celebrity suicides we saw start late last year.)
Kim Seok-kyun was found dead in his home on January 17, having committed suicide through hanging. He left behind a note saying, “I’m sorry to my family. Please forgive me.” Ironically, the message on his mini-homepage reads: “Suffering makes me stronger…”
At 30 years old, Kim got a late start on his acting career with a short film when he was 26, which he followed with several more shorts, but has remained largely unknown. It’s speculated that his suicide came as a result of depression over his stagnant career and a series of failed film and musical auditions.
