Kim Ji-hoo suicide shocks Korea

October 8, 2008

Less than a week after Choi Jin-sil took her life another Korean actor has followed suit.  Kim Ji-hoo, a 23 year old model and actor who is gay, committed suicide yesterday due to mounting harassment for being gay.  Kim was part of a tvN program entitled Coming Out and his lifestyle didn’t conform to some social norms in the Korean society.  It is sad to see a young person taking his own life just for being himself.  our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
