the reason why you shouldn't be so stress

59% of Korean teens think of suicide


Suicide issues again take headlines in South Korea for the past few days following the death of actor Ahn Jae-Hwan

State-run Korea Youth Counseling Institute released a poll finding on Tuesday (Sept 9) indicating that six in every 10 South Korean teenagers have thought about taking their own lives at least once

According to the survey of 4,700 middle and high school students, 58.8% of the respondents had thought of suicide; and 11.1% of the respondents attempted suicide.

The National Statistical Office (NSO) earlier said that there were 12,174 suicides representing 5% of all deaths in 2007. It’s also said that an annual average 23.6 Koreans committed suicide out of 100,000 people in the last five years, which is one of the highest levels in the world.

I almost didn’t want to believe the news report at the beginning, because the figures are a bit overwhelming for me… that’s like more than 30 Koreans are dying each day from suicide; the Korean government needs to treat this issue with serious urgency.

this was last year's news. there are also the boys over flower actress(cameo) who commit suicide.

P.S : appreciate your life as its the one and the only one. there are much more things to explore and enjoy than commit suicide.

think of the people who are fighting against uncureable disease who want to see more of the world.

release stress by looking at RAIN !! hahaha

a reason for me to put rain's picture !! HAhahaha
