On the night of February 22, 2005, only a few days after her graduation from Dankook University , Lee committed suicide at her apartment in Bundang , Seongnam . She was 24 years old. 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 inThe 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."

Lee Eun-ju was cremated and enshrined in a crypt at Goyang . Hundreds of her fellow actors and entertainers attended her funeral. Vocalist Bada sang "You Were Born to be Loved" and her friends spoke in her memory.
