An assistant scriptwriter for SBS “Rapid Deployment SOS 24” commited suicide by jumping off the 23rd floor of SBS Broadcasting Center early this morning.
This happened at 2.30am where the scriptwriter who goes by the name of Kim was working overtime with the producer, assistant producer, etc for SBS “Rapid Deployment SOS 24” program. According to one of her colleagues, although he discovered that Kim wasn’t around suddenly, he thought that she had simply gone home. He never thought that Kim would have committed suicide.
According to ambulance workers who was first on the scene, “We got there immediately after receiving a call but she (Kim) was already not breathing and we couldn’t find a pulse. Her pupils were already enlarged.”
Although the cause of Kim’s death is still under investigations, most speculate that she decided to end her life because of heavy stress from work. It’s understood for people like Kim, she only earns a monthly salary of just 500,000 KRW (461 USD) plus there is not even one rest day in a month. The police have concluded that it’s suicide and are now investigating the reason behind it.
Rest in peace.
