Another English teacher suicide in Pusan?

Stories of suicide sadden me and piss me off at the same time. When they come about, I have little desire to write about them, and fortunately I can point to previous posts and have you read those.

In the wake of another apparent suicide by an English teacher in Pusan, I will just point you toward the post I wrote last April when the same type of thing happened, and ask you to read the links within that post.

I'll also direct you toward a post in ROK Drop that highlights efforts by ATEK to get help for people who need it. Ignore comment #2; that guy can be a dipshit sometimes.

Suicide remains a permanent solution to a temporary problem. There are people out there to help you get through whatever is tormenting you.


  1. Sadly, ROKDrop has no shortage of dipshits in the comments section. It mars an otherwise great blog.

    Chickenhead is probably the worst out of all of them.

  2. Strange how an individual suicide is found offensive, but a cultural - or global - suicide is simply ignored. No problem with increasing global pollution, climate change, or our sixth mass extinction event, as humanity rushes to fulfill its private selfish ends at the expense of healthy biodiversity and sanity.
