Recently, online media outlets like Star News, BNT News, Hankyung, TV Report, and others decided to collaborate for a suicide prevention campaign called “A Beautiful Korea Living Together”.
The campaign aims to fill the Korean people with love and hope, and has brought together the support of top stars to speak on the issue in hopes of bringing more attention to it. JYJ‘s Jaejoong recently sat down for an interview discussing his thoughts on suicide. Check it out below!
Q. “Did you ever think about suicide?”
Jaejoong: “I felt sad and upset for the people who had to leave this world in such a manner. Suicide is something that hurts so many people, and I think that it just shouldn’t ever happen.”
Q. “You went through a lot of hardships yourself. What was the most painful for you, and how did you overcome it?”
Jaejoong: “Every person feels loneliness and is met with a hardship that’s hard to endure. While living life, there are, of course, burdens that you feel are only weighing down on you. It’s not a matter of how good or bad the environment you’re living in is, but rather a sort of misery that every person experiences while living life. In that regards, I too have experienced much sadness and loneliness, and the way I overcame those feelings was to love the world I’m living in and think preciously of my work, my loving members, and my family. I also earn strength from my fans. I plan on thanking every day I live for in the future as well.”
