NoCut News reports that at 5:20 pm yesterday a 23 year-old female university student hung herself in her home in Gyeyang-gu, Incheon. She left a message on her cell phone saying 'I want to follow Roh Moo-hyun.'

I have a bad feeling there will be more reports like this.

I can say with confidence that no, the South Korean media definitely did not glorify or sugarcoat Roh's suicide in any way, shape or form during the past week.

She wants to be investigated for a bribery scandal?

Sadly, I know of at least one other related event. There was an attempted suicide last weekend late at night at the main shrine by a middle aged man who was taken away by ambulance.
