Amy (35) has attempted suicide. 


On June 20, it's reported that Amy is currently hospitalized after attempting suicide at her home in Los Angeles. The reason behind her suicide attempt is revealed to be Channel A talk show 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine'. 


'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' covered a story about Amy on the June 19th episode. The reporters on the show claimed that Amy asked the reporters for 200,000 KRW (~ 175 USD) as she desperately needed money for treatment. It was also claimed that Amy asked the reporters to photoshop her photos before sharing them to the public in midst of her deportation controversy

Following the show, Amy expressed frustration via Instagram and hinted at her suicide. 

She wrote, 


"I'm so sick of it now. I have nowhere to go. I don't have anywhere to break down. I want to go where there's no sadness. Then it'll be revealed. I forgot how to smile. My tears have also dried up. It's hard to pretend like I'm strong. I have given up everything. The truth tends to come out once a person dies. I'm sorry to my family. I'm grateful to the people who trusted me. I hope everyone is happy."


In response to Amy's suicide attempt, the producers of 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' officially apologized, stating, "Producers of 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' find this very unfortunate and we deliver sincere apologies to Amy. We wish Amy a fast recovery."

Shows that words can hurt a person to an extreme degree. People, reporters and shows need to know when they should stop and not cross the line. Amy is not even in the limelight, why bring up someones past like that anyway? ugh

Knetz can get sued for malicious comments but this programme is allowed to BITCH, GOSSIP and SLANDER on national TV, Wow. Help me to make sense of it all

kgm23 vaxanne Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I'm not sure but in some countries if it's true it's not slanderous... Not saying what they did is OK, especially if they knew she was vulnerable

kgm23 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Morally wrong but maybe not legally, I'm not sure

ourcheers2u Tuesday, June 20, 2017

I hope she's okay, but in all seriousness I thought it was BOM...

lechuga ourcheers2u Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Dude me too. Well when i looked at the picture...

Fatimaaxo Tuesday, June 20, 2017

that looked like BOM

Jamless3978 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

i wonder why that kind of program exist.. its like people talking behind our back and then broadcast it .. lol

Fariiaa Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Why does she looks like Bom?

NORM Tuesday, June 20, 2017

i kinda dont like most news articles i see abt this show, cos it sounds like it brings attention to any rumor, regardless if true or not :/

robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Why can't Koreans be stronger people? Why is the only way to deal with challenges is suicide?? I seriously don't understand it. And they place such a bad stigma on mental healthcare over there.  So someone like her or TOP or any of the other idols or even just regular people with some mental health issues, can't freely seek the help they need or want because of the negative stigma of receiving mental health and also the general lack of resources (watch some freak is going to hop on this comment and say NOT ALL KOREANS! or start talking about the imperfections of *insert country here* because they are offended).

JeAnYoung robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

That's why recently there are more and more people in the entertainment field that are admitting to their mental struggles. Kim Gura and Lee Kyung Kyu actually makes jokes every week about their mental issues and brings to light that it is something that anyone can struggle from and should just be taken with a light heart.

jinssam robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Well obviously someone is going to hop on this comment and say it's not all Koreans. You can't generalize an entire nationality of people based on what you read on a k-pop site really. Obviously SK does have an issue with suicide. But you also have to know that it's not rooted from the fact that they're weak. It's because the societal pressures there are extreme to a cue in every aspect of life. And if you're different you're criticized and pushed to the edge. I mean, the girl literally is never allowed back into her country because she used drugs. If that's not an example of how extreme social criticism can be, then I don't know what is. Also, you answered your own question. The reason why so many people resort to suicide is exactly because they place such a bad stigma on mental healthcare.

robin1 jinssam Tuesday, June 20, 2017

AND OBVIOUSLY I shouldn't have to put the word "SOME" in order for you to know the gotdamn obvious. It's understood that I don't know every Korean but I have to put "some" or "not all" for you to know that. THAT should be obvious. Also, I don't give a fuck about you being offended or not liking my comment. As far as me answering my own question, my question was rhetorical. You wanted a comment back so here ya go. Bitch.

crowboy robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

I think you answered your own question. One of the reasons suicide is so common is likely because there is a stigma against mental illness, so many people do not seek treatment.

bangeryun94 robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Koreans don't have a fear of hell. That's why it's easy to end it. A hope for a better next life.

jinssam robin1 Tuesday, June 20, 2017

There's no need to curse to make a point really. I'm just pointing out the fact that you blanket-coated stereotypes and then asked a questions that you answered yourself. No, it's not automatically assumed that you understand that not every Korean resorts to suicide, considering you just said "Koreans" without any conditional adjective in front. I'm not offended (an assumption you made on your own), nor did I ever say in my reply that I "wanted a comment back". Reading is cool!

Briellejea robin1 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Why are you so aggressive? You're talking about a country with a high suicide rate, answering your own question, yet you call them weak. How about showing some sympathy for a women who's in such a state she'd attempt to end her life?

kgm23 bangeryun94 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Do some koreans believe in reincarnation?

robin1 Briellejea Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Yawn. No one was talking to you.

robin1 jinssam Wednesday, June 21, 2017

My question was rhetorical. Knowing the obvious is cool. Thumbs up for you bro.

Briellejea robin1 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Yawn? What are you 12?

jinssam Briellejea Wednesday, June 21, 2017

I think 12 is giving him/her too much credit lol

robin1 Briellejea Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Yeah I'm 12. Anymore questions?

robin1 bangeryun94 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

One of the few times I agree with you....lol

bangeryun94 kgm23 Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Yes.

bangeryun94 Briellejea Wednesday, June 21, 2017

We have a high suicide rate because of our elderly. They commit more suicides than any other age group. There are very few programs to assist with care for older people who are sick, so they commit suicide to not burden their families financially.

Briellejea bangeryun94 Thursday, June 22, 2017

Wow thats really unfortunate. Hopefully things change.

_Jarhon Tuesday, June 20, 2017

We fuckers are the ones reading trashy sites, following gossips, feeding hate and discrimination daily. Don't act all holier-than-thou when someone kills herself because of it. If you're oh so civilized then unsub every outlet that has ever discussed anything related to private life of others and only get your news from entertainment section of well respected newspapers.

ashablue _Jarhon Wednesday, June 21, 2017

this show is specifically all about gossips. thats literally in the title. And obviously, we as consumers should not feed into that. The n0.1 reason i dont read the sulli articles on akp

_Jarhon ashablue Wednesday, June 21, 2017

You wont believe how often this show has been linked to me by crazy ass fans as definitive journalistic proof. F.ex. delusional Kim Hyun Joong fans trying to prove "oppa didn't mean it"
