Warning: self-harm, suicide

A South Korean streamer reportedly tried taking her own life during a live stream.

Local outlets, including Koreaboo, reported that BJ Imvely—born Lim Ji Hye—was livestreaming her drinking and karaoke session with fellow streamers last June 11, until they got into an argument and forced her to go home.

Lim in real life, then started another live stream, criticizing her fellow streamers and alleging she wasn't paid for her previous guest appearances on their stream.

The teary-eyed Lim then talked about a letter she had written, according to Allkpop, as she apologized to viewers and asked her ex-husband to take care of their children. Lim then walked away from the camera as the live stream went on.

Emergency responders can then be seen entering her home, Koreaboo reported.

Lim's health status is unknown to date.

She began as a model for Maxim magazine in 2006. She also worked as a ring model for mixed martial arts promotion Road Fighting Championship.
