A 10-year-old girl in South Korea’s Gangwon Province reportedly committed suicide on July 3 and left a note saying life was “too tough” for her, according to the Korea Herald.
Her mother found the girl dead in the garden of the family’s apartment. A teacher had informed her of her daughter’s absence in school earlier that morning.
