Supermodel Daul Kim was battling depression in the weeks before her death, messages on her blog reveal.
The 20-year-old South Korean was found hanged in her Paris, France apartment on Thursday (19Nov09).
Kim, who modelled for Alexander MCQueen and Chanel, shared her inner thoughts and feelings on a blog called I Like To Fork Myself, and revealed shortly before her suicide that she was "lonely" and "depressed".
Referring to recent time spent in her hometown of Seoul, she wrote, "(the city makes me) mad, depressed and overworked."
In another post, she wrote, "I already accepted that I relate to nothing. The more I gain the more lonely it is... I know I'm like a ghost."
