..that's so sad.

I wish our corrupted politicians would do the same...but then we would be leaderless.-- (talk) 21:55, 23 May 2009 (UTC)

maybe the person/agency/company who paid him the 6 million dollar bribe had him off'd in fear of the truth coming out?

He was with a bodyguard, wasn't he? I guess he just told the bodyguard, "Hey, thanks for protecting me, Ima go jump now"?
To men go into the mountains. One comes back and says the other killed himself. The other being investigated for--and potentially having to give testimony about--charges of bribery. Of course it was suicide. Nobody would ever bribe a bodyguard.

the bodyguardEdit

the president askedme for a cigarette and when the bodyguard asked him whether he should get it, he said no and then said while glancing down: "Someone's walking down there" and then jumped

really sad day when pm's jump of mountains


According to recent police investigation, he left his home at 5:35 am, while the file on his computer that was known to be his last words was saved at 5:44 am 강경국.

I've heard of many conspiracies about his death, but this one seems to be contradicting too directly. --Memming (talk) 18:15, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

Roh Moo-hyun was killed by Japanese people. not suicide!Edit

Roh Moo Hyun did not commit suicide.

Evidence is that the the death note he "supposedly" posted was 30 minutes after the "supposedly" falling of the cliff... strange...

Roh Moo-hyun had a bad relationship with Japan (which is good), along with Dictator Kim Jung-il. They were politically good friends. He wept when he died.

Anyway, Japan also hated retiree Roh, and probably plotted to kill him. At least, my opinion.

Long live Korea!

PS The current Korean president--I comletely disagree. He is a Japan follower--now he is allowing Japan to have Dok-do island--what a shame! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:14, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

President Roh was not one who would commit suicide!! He was such a wise and considerate president of Korea. He loved his country very much; President Roh was unbelievably patriotic. He DID NOT jump off that cliff with intentions that people think he had.
