“#Alone allday”

“I can’t sleep, What can I do?”


Then, a few days before the incident, her account shared a post explaining that she was exhausted from overwork and that no one was listening to her anymore. With the message, she added a photo of herself at the hospital as well as an image of the YG Entertainment logo.

“Again I have to sleep here, because of overwork. I work until I can’t walk. I cannot find a better way to express if it isn’t Instagram now, because after my messages to my work, my colleague, my friend, and more I do not receive any more answer from them. Suddenly my days became over 13 hours, usually now I can sleep just 3 hours until I come back to work. Everybody became distant until I didn’t exist anymore. I cannot even explain well now. I can’t do like this another day.”


This was followed by a final message she shared two days before she supposedly ended her life: “I’m sorry.


Although not for certain, many claim that Jie’s account was a false account that did not belong to an employee under YG Entertainment.
