An ex-idol trainee 'A' from a famous agency was found involved in an attempted suicide in Busan.
'Dispatch' revealed that on April 6 at 8:27 PM KST, the Busan Police Department received emergency reporting of a person seen "going inside the Gwangalli Beach, with the water up to his/her neck."
Later, it was reported that the person who had attempted suicide was an ex-trainee who had trained at a well-known entertainment agency for three years. However, when 'A's plans of debuting were dismissed, the 25-year-old ex-trainee moved to Busan where they took a part-time job for one year. During that time, a sense of frustration filled 'A', eventually leading them to take extreme measures.
Another piece of information released by the police was that the individual had been especially distressed after hearing the news of the suicide of a famous idol star, a late singer who used to belong to the same company. Reportedly, one member of the police authorities told 'A' not to lose hope in their dream of becoming a singer, and that they would give 'A' contacts to the right institutes for professional counseling.
Upon arrival at the scene, the police were reported to have rescued the individual just in time. The authorities on duty went straight into the waters, fortunately recovering the body without any particular injuries. The rescued individual is safe with their family as of now, reports say.
We hope for his/her quick recovery with full compassion!
