Speaking out Against Suicide
Lee Ki-woo was interviewed by Star News to be the next star in the suicide prevention campaign led by major Korean media outlets TV Report and BNT News. The campaign was titled “A Beautiful Korea Living Together”, and it’s purpose is to fill Korean society and the public with hope and love. It also brought a lot of support from various Korean top stars to speak up about the issue in order to bring hope and more attention to the cause. Here is the Q&A of actor Lee Ki-woo and Star News for the interview:
Q:”What do you think about suicide? What do you think leads people to make such extreme decisions?”
Lee Ki-woo: “Everyone suffers from heartache. Unless you’ve gone through exactly what they are suffering from, you’ll never know how much pain they are suffering from. Still, suicide should never be an option. If you flip the world ‘suicide (ja sal)’, it becomes ‘to live (sal ja)’. When you go to the army, there are a lot of suicide prevention posters as well as training and lessons. I think listening to people that need help is one of the biggest ways to help the cause. If someone has at least one other person to hold on to and have their story heard, it could go a long way in preventing that person from thinking of ending their life.”
Q: “Was there ever a moment so difficult that you wanted to end your own life?”
Lee Ki-woo: “Ever since I was little, I saw my family overcome obstacles by coming together and fighting through it as a family. So even if I myself as an individual felt hardship, I never felt that I was alone. I can clearly see how much it would hurt my family if I were to give myself up that way.”
Q: “How do you overcome your obstacles?”
Lee Ki-woo: “I exercise, go out for drinks with my manager or close friends, and talk with my family.”
Q: “Do you know any celebrities on the brink of suicide?”
Lee Ki-woo: “I did see some, as well as some that just couldn’t come out of the ditch they had thrown themselves in. Whenever I see that, I’ll ask if we could go out for a meal and try to get them to think about their life in a different light. The rest is up to them.”
Q: “What will you be pursuing in the future?”
Lee Ki-woo: “I’m planning to take a break over the winter. I began working on a drama immediately after being discharged so I didn’t have a lot of freedom. I hope to go on vacation with some friends and train for my next drama. There are also Japanese promotions lined up starting January so I’ll also be studying up on the language.”
