  • Native name: 이은주

Lee Eun Ju was a South Korean actress. She committed suicide at the age of 24. After finding work as a model, she began to be offered roles in various TV dramas, including Start and KAIST. Her film debut came in 1999 when she played the younger sister in Park Chong Wan's award-winning feature Rainbow Trout.

Only a few days after her graduation from Dankook University, Lee committed suicide at her apartment. She slit her wrists and hanged herself. The family blamed the suicide on severe bouts of depression and mental illness and said she had been suffering from insomnia due to the nude scenes she had done in The Scarlet Letter. She left a suicide note scrawled in blood, in which she wrote, "Mom, I am sorry, and I love you." A separate note said, "I wanted to do too much. Even though I live, I'm not really alive. I don't want anyone to be disappointed. It's nice having money... I wanted to make money."
