According to Chosun Ilbo, In compliance with Joo Eun’s last wishes, the post also shared a posthumous letter from the young actress that contained an apology to her family, as well as an expression of thanks for their love and support.
I’m sorry I left first, especially my mom, dad, grandma, and older brother. My heart screams that I don’t want to live. Life without me may be empty, but please live bravely.
I will watch everything. Do not Cry. They will feel hurt. Right now I’m not sad at all. I feel determined and calm. I think it’s because I’ve thought about this for a long time. I have lived such a happy life that it was more than I deserved. That’s why it’s enough for me. This is enough. So please live without blaming anyone else.
Furthermore, Joo Eun mentioned how her acting career was both a blessing and a curse, but still, it meant the world to her:
I really wanted to act. Maybe it was my everything and it was a part of me. However, living that life was not easy. I don’t want to do anything else. It was so desperate. Having something you want to do is a blessing, but I realized that just wanting to do that is a curse.
