Korean Actress Jeong Da-bin (정다빈) Commits Suicide

I was so shocked upon hearing the news that a korean actress commited suicide. I don't really know why she did it but i think that she was just too depressed and couldn't take all the pressure and she also cannot let her feelings out.

It made me realize that when you have problems you should let it out..coz when you don't you might do something that's wrong. You shouldn't keep things all to yourself. Which I often do but i'm trying to overcome my own weakness...
