Aspiring actress in her twenties commits suicide after becoming a victim of fraud, her heartbreaking story garners attention

AKP STAFF

It's been belatedly reported that an aspiring actress, 23-year old Jo Ha Na, has committed suicide after becoming a victim of fraud. 

Earlier this week, an acquaintance of Jo Ha Na stated via SNS, "Hana, a kind girl who dreamed of becoming an actress, became a small flower bud and departed for heaven at the age of 23. After becoming a victim of phone fraud and losing a meager amount of 2 million KRW (~ $1,800 USD), she was devastated and chose a life without pain. As always, the devils will walk freely as if they did nothing wrong. Nonetheless, we must keep fighting. That is how we can earn the title of 'human'." 

Previously, the late Jo Ha Na garnered attention after appearing on the KBS Joy program, 'As Us Anything: Fortune Teller'. On this episode, which aired back in May of 2019, Jo Ha Na shocked viewers by revealing that she had lived 19-years of her life without a name, due to the fact that her parents failed to register her birth and divorced immediately after she was born. 

As a result, Jo Ha Na was unable to attend middle school or high school, and had to pass the GED exam to earn her education. After turning 19-years old, Jo Ha Na sought legal help and was finally able to register her name and identity. 

Afterward, Jo Ha Na expressed her wishes to meet her birth father, who left her as a child. However, as of earlier this week, the young, aspiring actress has passed away. 

Numerous netizens reacted with sympathy and anger upon hearing the news.

I can’t imagine how much pain she must have been in to take her life after losing that amount. That amount is no small amount but not normally what pushes people to the edge. She had to have been struggling so hard and this was the last straw. I hope she is happy in heaven, and is no longer suffering. The person who committed fraud towards her I hope they know they killed someone and never live happily.

This really hurts my heart. She probably felt so wrong and wondered why things happened to her and couldn’t take it… duck her scammer and her parents. Should never be allowed to have kids.
