South Korean actress and pop singer U-Nee was found dead from hanging in her home in Seo-gu Incheon, Sunday afternoon. U-Nee’s grandmother found the body of the 26-year-old singer hanging from a door frame after she returned from a church service. Police investigating the death have announced the case was an apparent suicide, though the singer left no note or will. U-Nee’s mother has testified that U-Nee had been suffering from depression. However we hope that the actual cause of death will be found out soon by South Korean Police.
U-Nee’s third album “Honey” is due for release on February 1. People have speculated U-Nee was suffering from the huge pressure associated with the release of the new album and was upset by online criticisms and attacks. This is really very surprising as her star was only beginning to shine. Ironically her pictures were distributed wildly late last year in Malaysia and was dubbed as the pictures of Altantuya Shaariibuu, the dead girlfriend of Abdul Razak Baginda, the Malaysian Political Analyst.
May you rest in Peace, U-Nee.
