What statistics does Korea want to hide the most? Perhaps the suicide rate. Although it is an advanced country with a national income of more than $30,000, the suicide rate is overwhelming, ranking first in the OECD.

It is very “problematic” that the suicide rate is high in the only country in world history that has achieved industrialization and democratization at the same time and in the richest society since Dangun.


Looking behind the uncomfortable but never-seen statistics, the increase in the choice of young people in their teens and 20s, especially women in their 20s, stands out.


The surge in suicide among young people is an intensity of socioeconomic contradictions. In particular, the psychological anxiety or desperation of women in their 20s is misfortune in itself.
