Tribute To Daul Kim

Daul Kim
[ 1989-2009 ]

You will be missed.

20-year-old model Daul Kim was found dead in her Paris apartment the morning of November 20 2009, her agency Next has confirmed. The cause of death remains unknown, but a source told The Cut that she committed suicide.

The agency said in a statement "She was a top model and a great friend to all of us at Next. Please respect her family's privacy at this time of sadness. We will all miss her very much."

The South Korean model kept a blog called I Like To Fork Myself, and yesterday made her last posting under the title "say hi to forever." The post was a song called "I Go Deep" by Jim Rivers, under which she wrote "best track forever."

Kim recorded a video diary for New York magazine during fall Fashion Week in September 2008, in which she revealed that she was reading Tolstoy (which many mistook for "Toy Story") and talked about her qualms with tipping bad waiters.
