The Myth

It is said that this picture is haunted by the ghost of a girl and can induce suicide if the viewer stares at it for too long. It has been making rounds on the Internet since at least 2006, possibly longer.

The Creepypasta

Take a look at the picture above, I recently discovered this image and its tale in a korean publicaion.

The story is this, in Japan shortly before a teenage girl comitted suicide, she drew this picture, scanned it and posted it online. In korea this story broke out and it spread like wildfire. There are various posts around in korean forums that say that the viewer gets drawn to the girls blue eyes, they say they can detect a hint of wraith and sadness within the eyes. Maybe the girl had died with so much sadness and anger that her spirit haunts the image, or maybe the image provoke sadness, similar to the song 'Gloomy Sunday'.

The freaky bit is this, they say it is hard for a person to stare into the girls eyes for longer than 5 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 growing taunting smirk appearing on the girls 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, i do feel a presence when I look at the image, whether it is evil or not I can not judge. I would like to know what the global online community feels and maybe even experts in art would be able to resolve why the eyes of this image can draw the viewer in so deeply?


The Sauce

The picture was drawn in Corel by artist Robert Chang, who denies any involvement in the creepypasta.

She is the main character from a sci-fi/fantasy screenplay of mine titled Tellurian Sky. Her name is Ruu, usually called Princess Ruu by those around her. Her unwilling ascension to the throne is the source of her melancholy, as she has no desire to rule a kingdom, but is forced to do so.
