Nam Tae Hyun asks netizens to stop hate comment culture & admits he attempted to take own life


Nam Tae Hyun asked netizens to stop hate comment culture in light of Sulli's passing.

On October 17, Nam Tae Hyun revealed his thoughts on malicious comments on Instagram, and he also confessed he once attempted to take his own life because of them. He posted:

"I don't want to lose any more friends or colleagues.
Just like you all, people who work as 'celebrities'
are people too.
I'm one celebrity who receives a lot of malicious comments.
That's why it hit close to home
She. My friend... I wonder how much pain she was in.
I as well... didn't think I could stand much more
and there was a time I tried to take my own life
A lot of celebrities you nonchalantly post comments to
are a lot more hurt and discouraged than you think.
I hear a lot of people say 'then don't look at malicious comments'
but it's difficult when your name rises in search rankings
and you get contacted by people asking what happened.
Please stop.
I don't want to lose any more friends or colleagues." 

In other news, Nam Tae Hyun recently made his first public appearance after his cheating scandal.

If you or someone you know is at risk of self-harm or suicide, seek help as soon as possible by contacting agencies specializing in crisis intervention and suicide prevention in the United States and abroad.

It's important for people to stop and think about the difference between criticism and malicious comments. Saying something like "I'm disappointed in what he did," or "This makes me think of him differently," is understandable. I saw commenters on this scandal in English and Korean call him gross names, tell him to die, etc. It's fine to express frustration with a public figure when they do wrong, but there are better ways to accomplish that than doing violence to someone else.

well he's not wrong. people are often a lot more downtrodden and discouraged than we think (or than they may appear. some people appear very confident and happy when the total opposite is true). thats why when people tell me that i'm giving my idols support or love that they don't "deserve" etc i dont agree. i think they should be told that they are loved, important, and talented as often as possible.
