RIP Model Daul Kim

Daul-KimI’m not too into the fashion model industry, but it still broke my heart over the news last week that South Korean Daul Kim passed away in Paris from an apparent suicide, especially with the knowledge that depression and suicide among Asian women are so often overlooked. Daul has been featured on the site before for her edgy looks and unique personality — I mean, how often can you find a beautiful model with her own blog that wasn’t just about the runway — and it’s an unfortunate end to what was a promising career on the runway. Kim’s blog has since been locked up (which is a blessing, since who knows how many people with a morbid curiosity would want to troll through it) but a quick perusal of her videos from Fashion Week show that we’ve truly lost a unique voice in the Asian community.

For those of you who are fans, OMGKPOP will be sending messages left in the comments to her family, so please leave your condolences there.

About Moye

I am a Japanese-American girl who was born, raised and is most probably stuck in traffic right this second in Los Angeles. I'm currently one of the co-editors of 8Asians and like to distract myself with good food, reading long books, playing video games, catching up on celebrity news, choosing my new new haircut and then writing all about it on Hello Moye and sometimes here on Twitter if I can get it in under 140 words or less. You can reach me at moye[at]
