Objectives : Many studies suggest that media reporting of a celebrity suicide increase suicidal rates, but few studies have assessed the impact of specific media report in Korea. We have examined possible influences of media reporting death of famous Korean actress Ms. Choi, whose death resulted in extensive media coverage. Methods : We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of the patients who presented with suicide attempts to the Emergency Department of Severance Hospital during 12 month period. We obtained demographic data, any past history of suicide attempt and psychiatric illness, the methods of suicide attempts, lethality, and follow up after discharge. Results : We finally enrolled 162 patients during the study period. The total number of suicide attempts by hanging was 11, and 9 attempts occurred after death of Ms. Choi. The patients who visited emergency department after death of Ms. Choi tend to use more severe methods than before. Most patients discharged against advice and were not followed up after discharge. Conclusion : From the result of this study, it might be possible that Werther effect could have an effect on suicide attempts. This study also suggests need for intense follow up for survivors after suicide attempt. (J of Kor Soc for Dep and Bip Disorders 2011;9:64-69)
