Biography

U;Nee, (Hangul: 유니, born Heo Yoon (허윤, 許允) May 3, 1981 - January 21, 2007) was a K-Pop South Korean female singer and actress. She was also known as Lee Hye-Ryeon (이혜련, 李慧蓮). She committed suicide by hanging herself; she had reportedly been suffering from depression.

Music career
Heo was known for her sexually provocative image throughout her short music career. Early in her music career, she attempted to create a sexier appearance through plastic surgery, in order to appeal to a larger fan base. Although successful in achieving a sexy image, the changes were quite drastic in comparison to her previous appearance, and did not contribute to increased album sales. Instead of being known as a talented singer, she became more famous for her unusually large chest, as a result of breast implants. Due to declining music industry in Korea, her record label decided that album sales alone was not enough to produce profit, and chose to market her as a sexy singer. Fans of her music decreased while fans of her new sexy look increased, who often urged the singer to reveal herself in Korean edition of Playboy as well as other adult entertainment publications. Heo, who was soft-spoken and reserved in real life, found this difficult to bear.

Suicide
U;Nee died at her home in Seo-gu, Incheon, South Korea on January 21, 2007 after hanging herself.
