Suicide Girl

Take a look at the picture below. I recently discovered this image and its tale in a Korean publication. The story is this:

Shortly before a Japanese teenager committed suicide, she drew this picture, scanned it, and posted it online. In Korea, this story broke out and spread like wildfire. There are various posts around in Korean forums that say the viewer gets drawn to the girl's blue eyes.

They say they can detect a hint of wrath and sadness within the eyes. Maybe the girl died with so much sadness and anger that her spirit haunts the image, or maybe the image provokes sadness in a similar fashion to the song "Gloomy Sunday."

The freaky bit is this: they say it is hard for a person to stare into the girl's eyes for longer than five minutes. There are reports that some people have taken their own lives after doing so. People say the picture changes; as you view it, there is a hint of a taunting smirk appearing on the girl's lips or a dark ring grows around the girl or her eyes.

One thing is for sure. The picture has sparked a curiosity in me that I must find out. id o feel a presence when I look at the image, but I cannot judge whether it is evil or not. I would like to know what the global online community feels. Maybe even experts in art would be able to resolve why the eyes of this image can draw the viewer in so deeply.

  2. It's not an animated picture, I looked at the image info and it didn't say it was an animation with frames.

  3. Is it just me, or are her eyes and eyebrows moving? Also, the picture makes me a little ill when looking at it, and I mean the puke-a-bit kind of ill.

  9. Certain images, if looked at long enough, and with the right amount of influence(story) can look like they move or change.

    The mind plays tricks.

  10. Addendum from previous.

    Still, I'd rather not look at it, as I am sitting to and open space and it is nighttime.

  11. It only "changes" because it is intentionally slightly out of focus. It strains the eyes, making it apper to move,

  15. Oh come on, people. Stop being a bunch of cowards, and talk to it, as well as stare at it. I wasn't afraid, and I did it. Even offered her a challenge tonight. ¬¬

  16. I'm just gonna say that the longer i stared at this picture, the more i felt like i was looking at my own reflection

  17. You can't stare directly into the face and expect changes, you have to stare like, off to the side, or at the end of her nose. She's so pretty though, and might I add, the circles around her eyes did appear to get darker but her mouth never moved for me.

  20. Well one of her eyes IS drawn larger and with different detail, if anything it just seems like an optical illusion.

  22. Holy shit! Her eyes! Something is wrong with them. The black of her eyes get bigger and smaller. It freaked me out.

  24. There's Sadness in here eyes......
    A lot of Sadness,
    Then her Lips, I think its a Fake smile. Like,
    Everything will be alright but deep inside her its not.
    Also her eyes look tired like the girl cried a lot.

  25. If you stare at ANYTHING long enough it distorts, it's your brain refusing to take in the same information over and over. Same sort of thing as ringing in your ears when it's dead silent.

  26. Okay, I stared at it longer as 5 minutes.. I had a strange feelin that she was talking to me.. I wanna help her.. She's beautiful.. So damn beautiful.. And her eyes.. Just WOW.. But the thing I liked the most was the smile.. The first thing I saw.. Her smile.. A smile of sadness, a smile made by sadness.. Beautiful..

  30. When I last read this story, the picture was that of a girl of suicidegirls dot com.

  31. I must say that it makes me a little unconfortable to look at the picture but maybe because I'm really scared of this type of stories so if you tell me something is haunted or anything like that I don't want to look at it nor enter it! but it's a really pretty picture!

  35. Lets see i stared at this gif for a good while and nothing happened i scrolled down to read the comments then i scrolled back up. Her expression seemed to change to sort of a grin not a friendly grin either it was more of a grin with the intent to do harm. She's beautiful on the outside yet ugly on the inside the poor girl must of been through a lot. However I'm officially creeped out.
