Korean actress Yoo Joo-eun has reportedly died after committing suicide aged 27, as reported on Monday, August 28.

South Korean actress, Yoo Joo-eun, was reportedly found by her brother after she died by committing suicide.

Her brother shared a snippet of the suicide letter Yoo Joo-eun left behind, on his Instagram:

“Sorry for leaving everyone behind. Especially mum, dad, grandma, and sister. The contents of my head screamed that I couldn’t continue living,” wrote Yoo Joo-eun.

“You may feel empty without me, but I hope you stay strong. I will keep watching you all from above. Please don’t cry, it’s not good for your health,” she continued.

Yoo Joo-eun went on to write that she loved acting. However, she had difficulties in pursuing her career as an actress. 

“I always wanted to do acting. Maybe it was everything to me or just a small part of me,” stated Yoo Ju Eun.

“But it turned out that pursuing a career was very difficult. I didn’t want to do anything else and it was excruciating. I realised having a dream is a blessing and a curse at the same time,” she added.

Best-known for her role in 2019’s Joseon Survival Period alongside Kang Ji-hwan, Kyung Soo-jin and Song Won-seok, Joo-eun made her acting debut in the 2018 K-drama Big Forest.

The news was shared on Twitter:

“”Joseon Survival” actor #YooJooEun ended his life by committing suicide at the age of 27.”

“In her last messages she emphasized that she was not sad and had considered this option for a long time and told all those left behind to go on living even without her.”

“RIP yoo jooeun”, read another tweet.

The news of the death of Korean actress Yoo Joo-eun, follows reports that TV star Ashvin Luximon, best known for his role on Eastenders, reportedly died suddenly in July following a brain aneurysm, as reported by his family.
