Another Korean entertainment figure commits suicide

Kim Jong-hak, a director behind some very popular South Korean television series in the 1990s and beyond, including Sandglass and Full House, has committed suicide.

This is always a tragedy, but even more so in a place like Korea where suicide rates are high and it is not always un-stigmatized, but even seen as a positive things. You can read more of my views on that by Googling suicide+kushibo+normative (when I have more time, I'll provide links).

Requiescat in pace, Mr Kim. It's too bad whatever tormented you won out in the end.

UPDATE:
Here are some Monster Island links on suicide:
