It was revealed through an SNS posts that a Korean woman claiming to be an YG employee, who was known as Jie, allegedly took her own life on March 31st, 2018.
Her previous posts expressed that she did not enjoy her work.
“This isn’t fun for me.”
She also shared “dark” posts, often indicating that she could not sleep.
“I can’t sleep, What can I do?”
Then, a few days before the incident, her account shared a post explaining that she was exhausted from overwork and that no one was listening to her anymore. With the message, she added a photo of herself at the hospital as well as an image of the YG Entertainment logo.
“Again I have to sleep here, because of overwork. I work until I can’t walk. I cannot find a better way to express if it isn’t Instagram now, because after my messages to my work, my colleague, my friend, and more I do not receive any more answer from them. Suddenly my days became over 13 hours, usually now I can sleep just 3 hours until I come back to work. Everybody became distant until I didn’t exist anymore. I cannot even explain well now. I can’t do like this another day.”
This was followed by a final message she shared two days before she supposedly ended her life: “I’m sorry.”
Although not for certain, many claim that Jie’s account was a false account that did not belong to an employee under YG Entertainment.
People need to check out facts first before informing something like this. Jiieiij is a troll who pretending to be a YG staff. She stole pics from actual YG staffs (from IG and FB) then upload it on her IG as it her own. https://t.co/vOD8P83229
