Chae Yeon forgives false suicide report


Singer Chae Yeon has decided to be forgiving about a Chinese media report that falsely reported her suicide, her agency said over the weekend.

According to Medialine, Chinese Web site reported through Weibo, a Chinese version of Twitter, that “Chae attempted suicide on April 9 after leaving a message online that she is feeling extreme sorrow.” However, it turned out that the report was false after Chae was seen on April 10 at the airport without any injuries.

“There were rumors that Chae attempted suicide, surprising both her friends and family,” an official from Chae’s agency said. “But since we have a branch in China, we’re not going to take any further legal action against them.”

The agency said that the 34-year-old singer is currently in Beijing to film a television advertisement.

“Since the media has admitted to its false report, we’re trying to move past this quickly,” the agency said. “We thank fans for their continued support, and Chae will try her best for them.”
