K-Pop superstar U Nee committed suicide last week aged 25. Heo Yoon,
aka U Nee, started her career as an actress and teen pop star but
industry bosses persuaded her that she would gain greater fame and
success with a sexier image. Plastic surgery gave her a westernised
appearance - slimmed-down nose and huge silicone breasts - yet album
sales slumped. Instead she was marketed in men's magazines and pushed
towards appearing in Playboy. U Nee was diagnosed with depression and
started taking medication but could not cope with her new career and
the relentless internet attacks from ex-fans who didn't approve of her
transformation. She hung herself in the bedroom of her family home.

RIP Heo Yoon
