    Default South Korea #1 OECD Suicide Leader

    There is definitely something wrong in South Korea. More so than anywhere else on earth except maybe Japan.

    "Suicide is everywhere,” says South Korean author Young-ha Kim, referring to modern Korean society, in his op-ed for the The New York Times. Countless others have documented what some call “the scourge of South Korea” – the fact that people of all classes, ages, and genders are committing suicide at exceptionally high rates.

    The country’s profound economic growth has brought along major social changes. One change has been a sharp increase in the suicide rates among large segments of the population, including adolescents and the elderly. Korea’s suicide rate, attributable to its high-stress society, is among the highest in the world.

    Suicide is the 3rd most common cause of death in South Korea; on average, 44 people commit suicide every day. South Korea has the highest suicide rate among the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) nations, which include countries such as Germany, the U.K., and Japan. It is the only OECD country whose suicide rates have increased since the 1990s. For years, social scientists have puzzled over why this economically successful state has such startlingly high suicide rates.

    SICK, SICK, SICK!!!

    South Korea has the highest suicide rate in the world for children ages 10-19 and extremely high elderly (60+) suicide rates. For children, most suicides are caused by stress relating to education. Korean children have a school year of 11 months and often spend over 16 hours a day at school and at afterschool programs called hagwons. All this studying is done to get into the top three universities in South Korea, all of which are known for their miniscule acceptance rates.

    What a spiritually sick place. Totally devoid of spirituality. Only just obsessive materialism.

    South Korea functions as a SHINING counterexample to the prevailing belief that happiness is related to the economic success of a society. As the economy grew, the stress in South Korean society increased, as did the rates of depression and suicide. The takeaway here is that countries must take an active hand in providing for the health of their citizens – both physical and mental. Countries like South Korea are economically but not socially viable, and a country needs to be both in order to be sustainable. South Korea needs to take decisive action to ensure that its citizens are safe from the biggest threat of all: themselves.

    Says the Frenchman who moved to America. A place where if you add up the opiates, alcohol and guns probably has a far higher suicide rate. The man who drinks himself to death is still killing himself as is the person who becomes obese eating himself to death.

    I guess America has never had a Scott Weiland, Kurt Cobain, Monroe, or even an ahem....Jeffrey Epstein either.

    Apples and oranges. Suicide happens. Dog meat and now suicide? One would think you are developing an interest in one place above others. Every country has its good and bad.

    bottom line is those who obsess about money and their financial futures and obsess over their 401k and retirement plans and try to be frugal for their entire lives meet this fate whereas those who spend abundantly from the abundance that Allah has blessed them with are the true free spirits and the thought of suicide will never cross their minds.

    Excuse my language here Mr Frenchie, but you are talking like an idiot. You started a thread talking about a girl who killed herself and yet listen to yourself above. Hara was in an abusive relationship where her partner recorded her secretly, he attempted to blackmail her, and then found himself criminalized. That puts a lot of stress on a person. It has fuck all to do with pension plans. She made the wrong decision to kill herself IMO, but many people do kill themselves be it the writer who blows his brains out or drinks himself to death. It often has little to do with pension plans, but the life is suffering difficulties that can set upon a person. It happens.

    "Fake on the outside and rotten on the inside" = Mr Frenchie pretending to care about something he does not.

    That sounds like a very sick society to me that her partner would do that to her and that she would react in that manner

    Thank you for confirming how freaky and unnatural that society is, and that's before even mentioning plastic surgery

    don't be so disingenuous. The pension plan comment is about that high pressure South Korean society trying to force all their children to get into the top three universities so they can all be really rich and white-collar executives.

    You seem to ignore the RKelly and Wacko Jacko types of your new found culture and they are just the famous ones.

    And as for competition to achieve, that is the same in any society. What on earth to do you think Ivy League or Cambridge and Oxford are all about?

    This thread is a troll one. Have a good day, Frenchie. Go and eat some horse.

    In 1993 I had the opportunity to visit South Korea for about 3 weeks. Many many parents told me that they would never ever accept that their children become bakers or mechanics or own a car wash things of that nature in the blue-collar category. They all thought their children would be MBA executives okay? that is unsustainable pie-in-the-sky nonsense. Sick people when a baker or a barber is considered embarrassing to be

    You are a compulsive liar. My brother in law is an independent baker running his own operation and does very well. He employs 3 other people and has invested well. Many people encourage their children to go into cuisine and baking and I actually teach a group learning that very trade. I don't think anyone has considered it embarrassing. My sister in law is likewise a hair stylist and once you have your own little set up going on, it pays well too. I am not sure you really saw very much reality in your '3 weeks' as these ideas exist mostly in your head and these trades can pay very well. The jobs people do tend to be the same kind of jobs people do in any developed country and most people are not exactly killing themselves.

    Worry more about your own life rather than some Kpop singer that you didn't even know existed until the last 24 hours.
