Actress Lee Yoo Young recently uploaded a photo of herself with a staff member on her official Instagram account along with the caption, “I want to die. Every day is like hell. I want to be free from it…”
The photo appeared to be a shot of her daily life as an actress, but the caption that accompanied it worried many fans and elicited words of comfort and encouragement.
But shortly afterward, the post was deleted from Instagram followed by a formal explanation from Lee Yoo Young’s agency claiming that it was just a mistake.
Lee Yoo Young’s agency, Ace Factory stated, “We’ve confirmed that Lee Yoo Young uploaded that post by accident. She was also surprised after it was uploaded and deleted it right away. We apologize for any worry this may have caused.”
