Choi Jin Shil Already Comtemplated Suicide In Last Phone Conversation

The contents of the last phone conversation between Choi Jin Shil and a magazine reporter was made known to the public. Choi Jin Shil is believed to have ended her life shortly after ending the phone conversation.

The contents of Choi Jin Shi’s phone conversation with the male reporter was published in the November issue of Queen and released today.

Choi Jin Shil had called him after receiving a call from Baek who had spread the rumors about her being a money lender on the 28th of last month. Choi expressed, “It’s really bone-chilling. I thought I was filming some kind of horror movie. How did she (Baek) find my phone number? Really that woman’s voice was so scary that I didn’t know what to do. That woman must probably have some kind of powerful “back”? Even though she is young, is she a daughter of some powerful family?

Even afterwards, Choi Jin Shil said that Baek had made one-sided phone calls to Choi multiple times during the day, and that every time a call came, she said she felt like she was getting a ‘call from the devil,’ Choi Jin Shil said she felt like she was constantly being mocked/jeered by the young woman.

Reporter Kim revealed, “When Baek’s identity was traced and revealed two days later, Choi Jin Shil called me up again but felt more depressed.”

Choi Jin Shil told me, “Since they have found the person who spread the rumors about the debt, I thought that people would now believe my truth (her innocence). But at the To-ron message board many people chose to believe the rumors rather than the truth. Even now many people still believe that I am the evil/vicious loan-shark who drove Ahn Jae Hwan to his death.”

I am [very] scared (lit. trembling). If it continues to go on like this, I really think that I am going to die”, Choi said over the phone.

Choi Jin Shil then continued, “If I die, then would they believe my truth? Even though my name is ‘Choi Jin Shil (means truth)’ people are calling me ‘Choi Ga Shik (means fake).’ Isn’t this really sad? Although I am sorry to my children, instead of being a mother that is shunned/scorned/pointed the finger/blame by the people of the world, wouldn’t it be better to be a mother whose truth was revealed after dying.” Her intentions being made clear.

Reporter Kim told Choi Jin Shil’s family to keep a close watch of Choi Jin Shil since she (Choi) had told him that she wanted to die, but the day when Choi Jin Shil came home, after speaking with her mom she went to the bathroom and told her mother that she was okay and for her to go to bed.

  1. She seems to have dropped many hints to a lot of people before she finally took her life. There are 3 of them now, incl. this reporter. The first 2 were her manager and her personal assistant/make-up artist (I can’t remember too clearly).

    Aside from the reporter who probably doesn’t really care much about her life, I wonder why didn’t the other 2 people take notice and prevent her from being alone until this rumour dies down? Don’t they care? Am I missing something??

    Thanks coolsmurf for the update… It just saddens me when people die this way…

  2. she just didn’t let her children down she let everyone else down…
    dang man…i can’t help but say it..i hate baek…

  3. She gave away so many hints. But no one cared to notice.
    Korea is just a closed society where no one dares to get help to sort out their life which in turns, the commit suicide.

    I hope her death will be solved. And Baek put behind bar for life, so that her Family can fully start to heal.

  4. Whoever the hell Baek is should go to hell man. After all that suffering and pushing someone to commit suicide like that, it’s ridiculous to have even spread rumors in the first place.

  5. Baek!!! scary girl….

    Hope the police and deal with her swiftly and let this type of people know that you cannot go about just hitting the ENTER key anytime you want and wish.

  6. When someone bring a child into this world, no matter what they have to be strong for their children. And for being innocent after death or whatever it was/is , I can not digest in my system. I like this person as an Actress , I used to like her as a person or as a mother, but Honest to everything I got, I think it’s so lame to just take the short cut and ended her own Life without thinking of how her children will survived in the future without their mom, ( note: not daddy since he gave up the custody to her!!! )
    I’m still upset. no matter what’s the reason parent specially mom who “said” love their kids the most will do such a thing. I ‘m not gonna read anything regarding her death . Done. Rest in peace if she can. and Bless the poor children.

  7. y should die if u know tht u r not d one to b blamed…d child already away from their father..n now, d children wil grow up without their mother.. ~ if she is not decided to commit suicide, d children wil understand d whole thing n always on her side no mater what eventualy… ~ bt it already hapend nwy… ~ RIP~

  8. Why didn’t anyone stop her if there were such blatant signs? Of course, we always say that after the fact, but gosh, that is so sad that she felt her death would prove her innocence. May she rest in peace.

  9. i feel so sad for the kids, but i equally feel sad for her. i can understand how important it was for her to prove her innocence. she must have felt dying was the last resort. how sad. for someone to give up life to stop the malicious gossips, where has the korean society come to!

  10. tht baek reporter wow is a major asshol;e man………tough to live when everyone is passing their judgements on you……really stupid baek ……he/she should be apologising right now….not only did she spread rumor she even harrassed CJS by calling her and stuff…..shouldnt she be jailed for harrasment and threathening

  11. Coolsmurf – Good job on the translations. I also translated the article and posted it on Soompi a few hours ago.

    Here are some minor things that I thought I’d add to what you posted and some minor things to change.

    First, the reporter Kim was a male and not a female. Also, just to make things clear, since some people here seem to think that he was just a regular reporter, he wasn’t. He was a good friend of Choi Jin-sil’s, which explains why she called him, as a friend.

    This was my translation of the article that I tried to do word for word. I added some of your parts that I thought worked better and that I didn’t quite understand.

    Phone conversation with Reporter Kim after having received a call from Baek on the 28th.
    “It’s really bone-chilling. I thought I was filming some kind of horror movie. How did she (Baek) find my phone number? Really that woman’s voice was so scary that I didn’t know what to do. That woman must probably have some kind of powerful “back”? Even though she is young, is she a daughter of some powerful family?” Choi Jin-sil said urgently. Even afterwards, Choi Jin-sil said that BAEK had made one-sided phone calls to Choi multiple times during the day, and that every time a call came, she said she felt like she was getting a ‘call from the devil,’ Choi Jin-sil said she felt like she was constantly being mocked/jeered by the young woman.

    Phone conversation on the 30th of last month, when the person who spread the loan-shark rumor was revealed to the public.
    Choi told Reporter Kim, “Since they have found the person who spread the rumors about the debt, I thought that now people would believe my truth. But at the To-ron message board many people chose to believe the rumors rather than the truth. Even now many people still believe that I am the evil/vicious loan-shark who drove Ahn Jae Hwan to his death.” I am [very] scared (lit. trembling). If it continues to go on like this, I really think that I am going to die” Choi said to Reporter Kim over the phone. Choi Jin-sil then said, “If I die then would they believe my truth? Even though my name is ‘Choi Jin-sil (Jin-sil means truth)’ people are calling me ‘Choi Ga-shik (Ga-shik means fake).’ Isn’t this really sad? Although I am sorry to my children, instead of being a mother that is shunned/scorned/pointed the finger/blame by the people of the world, wouldn’t it be better to be a mother whose truth was revealed after dying” Reporter Kim felt sorry again for these words that suggested her death.

  12. Also, just to add, Reporter Kim told Choi Jin-sil’s family to keep close watch of Choi since Choi told him that she wanted to die, but the day when Choi Jin-sil came home, after speaking with her mom she went to the bathroom and told her mother that she was okay and for her to go to bed.

  13. AWW!!!

    😦

    Choi Jin-sil 😦

    It’s so sad that she had to think that ending her life was the answer… I don’t think it’s right when people continue saying that she’s selfish when she is far from it!

    Thanks for translation, Coolsmurf.

    Rest in peace, Choi Jin-sil.

  14. I don’t wish harm to Baek, but I do believe that the world is fair and everyone eventually gets what coming to them.

    God bless Choi Jin-sil’s family, friends, and family.

  15. Choi Jin-sil was really determine to die. she had already planned her steps. there was no way her mom or anybody could had stopped her. if stopped, i am sure she will try to do it again. her hinting to the others was a cry for help to clear her name but the help just did not arrived timing enough. in fact, i think there are still pple who rather believe in the juiced up rumors than the truth.

  16. I really wish this “Baek-stabber” got arrested and locked up for a really long time. Charge her with 2nd degree murder or something so she could be remain bars for 10 years or more! We really don’t need a “schemer” like that girl! Her parents should have taught their daughter well!

  17. yeah the reporter was her friend.

    this makes Baek seem really evil, basically stalking a person you have already victimized. isn’t harassing a person over the phone a crime? wth, this creepy Baek person (i can’t say lady because she isn’t one) should be apologetic. what i hate the most is this person is able to get away free, after deliberately sabotaging a wonderful innocent talented person CJS, & ruining the lives of her kids & family & friends. this sucks. the justice system doesn’t work at all. this Baek person gets her 15 minutes of fame, but for being a jackass.

  19. It bothers me that such a wonderful person as CJS had to take her own life for such a meagre issue. May her soul Rest in Peace. 😦 However I am much more concerned with her two poor kids. I felt like crying for these two innocent beautiful children who can never have the real mother’s love anymore.

    I can only pray that Choi Jin Shil’s son and daughter grow up to be wonderful persons like their late mother. Amen! 😦

  20. gosh.. that baek should just drop dead.. choi jin shil’s a disciplined actress so, its little wonder that she puts pride in her reputation..

    seriously, it takes years to build a good reputation.. and seconds to tarnish it..

    no matter what kinda rumours there are, netizens should not think that just because they have the rights to say anything, means they should abuse it..

  21. awww.thts so sad. tht Baek woman is a real psychopath, i cant believe she was arrested or something for this. RIP Choi Jin Shil. i hope tht her children r ok or willl be…

  22. Ok some people need to stop saying that with all of those hints they should have been able to stop it. Am sure those she spoke with and gave hints to feel the guilt already so we should not add up to that, besides how can you stop someone who has already made up their mind. I think regardless of what anyone would have said or done she decided to take her life and did. Lets put the blame where it belongs, the evil b i t c h Baek, if karma does exist may she get hers ten fold.

  23. Choi Jin Shil, we will always remember you!
    we believe you, every single word. Karma should hit Baek a hard time, it’s coming alright. I hope Baek regrets what she had done. that Baek is born to be evil, very evil. I still can’t believe what had she done to Choi Jin Shil.
    RIP Choi Jin Shil, we always believe in you ❤

  24. bueno…. me gusto la serioe y me interese por ella.
    espero que algien de corea me escriba… para conocer mas de su cultura … esto es fuerte y triste…
