Prior to her death, she was suffering from panic disorder and was facing emotional distress. Han Nah's body was found by her mother who was getting worried because she could not get in contact with her daughter.
According to an acquaintance of the artist, Han Nah was an aspiring artist who was passionate about her work. They said, "After her debut and while she was promoting, I knew her to be a very nice and hardworking girl. I just found out recently and I was shocked." The acquaintance added, "She was very honest and worked passionately as a singer. We are not sure if it is true or not, but if it is true, then it is a regrettable news."
On October 1, Sports Kyunghyang quoted a music rep who said, "The talented and bright Han Nah ended her life through suicide. Her close friends and fellow singers do not even know this fact, which is a shame."
Han Nah first got herself known through an appearance in Kang Sung Hoon's MV in 2002 and a featuring in Rain's "I Love You Again" off his second album. Han Nah debuted back in 2004 under JYP Entertainment with debut track, "Bounce," and released 3 more albums in the following years until 2008. She also collaborated with Cool's Yuri in an album released back in 2009. She debuted as an actress in 2011 under the stage name, Han Ji Suh, and appeared in the movie, 'Money Bag,' and in a short film, 'Black Crayon.'
It was explained that her death was reported late because at the time of the incident, she was not active in the industry.
