Former S. Korean President Commits Suicide

Corruption scandal had tarnished Roh's image as a 'clean' politician

SEOUL, South Korea - Embattled former President Roh Moo-hyun — South Korean President for 2003-2008, a reformist shamed by a corruption scandal that tarnished his image as a "clean" politician — jumped to his death while hiking in the mountains behind his rural home in South Korea, his lawyer said. He was 62.

Roh was hiking in Bongha village when he threw himself off a steep cliff around 6:40 a.m. Saturday, lawyer Moon Jae-in told reporters in the southern city of Busan. He said Roh left a suicide note.

"Too many people are suffering because of me," he wrote, according to South Korean media.

Former South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun had been under investigation in a bribery scandal. The suicide — the first by a South Korean leader — stunned the nation.

"I have no face to show to the people. I am sorry for disappointing you," an emotional Roh said April 30 before speaking to prosecutors.

Sad news. T_T

Now,in my opinion, time is about to tell when Hayden Kho would be too shameful to commit his second suicide attempt after all these scandalous videos going around the net.
