A Seoul Medical Center nurse committed suicide last Saturday at her home after allegedly being bullied at work.

The cause of her death was a drug overdose.

She left a suicide note that read: "Please do not take me to our hospital when you find me, and I do not want my hospital people to offer me condolences."

The bereaved family claimed she had been harassed at work and demanded an investigation.

The nurse once sent a message to her family saying she was not able to have a meal during the day. She also was chided for not making coffee well and scolded because of the noise her slippers made, according to the family.

"The hospital made a call after the cremation, asking why she has been absent from work," her younger brother said. "I was extremely enraged and hung up after telling them she died."
