20-year-old Korean model Daul Kim was found dead in a Parisian apartment, New York Magazine is reporting.
Kim’s death was confirmed by her agency, Next, who 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.”
Cause of death was not disclosed, but New York Magazine cites a source claiming the death was a suicide. Daul made her modeling debut in the Fall 2007 shows, and she appeared in Zoo, British Vogue and an ad campaign for Topshop. Kim maintained a blog entitled “I Like To Fork Myself,” and added a final post on 11/18, “say hi to forever.”
