1. [+310, -24] Japan's suicide rate may be going up but our country is still embarrassingly #1

2. [+271, -28] Isn't it pretty bad in the Korean entertainment industry as well?? Sulli, Goo Hara, Jonghyun, etc... and our country especially ranks #1 for suicides worldwide... In regards to suicide, our country doesn't get to have a say in the rates of other countries.

3. [+191, -6] Both Korea and Japan's entertainment industries began by being controlled by gangs and yakuzas. Korea was at least able to sever most of the ties with the war on crime but Japan still has yakuza influence.

4. [+10, -0] Gangs are affiliated with the Korean entertainment industry too ㅎㅎ

5. [+7, -1] Korean politicians will buy celebrities to cover their own political scandals with~~ every time a scandal happens, celebrities suffer more hate comments~~

6. [+6, -0] We don't really get to have a say on this topic. We have countless of celebrity suicides on our end as well. Our country needs to change too.

7. [+6, -0] Honestly, celebrities have been known for a while now in Hong Kong, Japan, and Korea to basically be on the beck and call of politicians and high ranking gangsters. Not only are they called to serve drinks and entertain but are under constant threat to sleep around. That probably attributes to the suicide rates. Korea still suffers this problem.

8. [+4, -1] Japan really needs to revamp their entire industry, though. How can they still be under the control of the yakuza in these times? I feel like I'm watching some 90s flick about some Hong Kong triad, tsk tsk. Takeuchi Ryoko was one of my favorites, too, how unfortunate to have lost her...
