Korea’s Ministry Health and Welfare has told reporters that 15,000 people a year kill themselves South Korea. This means the country has the highest suicide rate any developed nation the world. Another 100,000 people end hospital trying to commit suicide. Every day, 43 Koreans take their own life. The Ministry said that the biggest reason is stress school or work. Other reasons include loneliness, and the sadness when another family member commits suicide. A church official said the high rate is a danger to Korean society because the country’s birth rate is so low. He said: "If the high suicide trend continues, the whole society could find itself the edge a cliff."

This growing problem is made worse because copycat behaviour when a celebrity commits suicide Korea. Research shows that the suicide rates jumps around 30 per cent the two months a celebrity suicide. News reports a star’s suicide can result 600 Koreans ending their own life. Many people say television is to blame because it spends too much time reporting news of suicides and this gives people the idea they too can end their life. The Korea Times newspaper said the government should do more to help people. It said: “To lower the suicide rate, Korea should become a more compassionate and caring society even the expense a slower-growing economy.”
