And one short glimpse of the night skyline in ANY city in South Korea will reveal a sea of RED neon crosses. There are more churches per square mile in Korea than anywhere on the planet....."
Actually, you are very wrong. Wikipedia: "As of 2005, approximately 46.5% of the South Korean population express no religious preference.
Of the religious people, 29.3% are Christian (of which 18.3% (on total) profess to be Protestants and 10.9% to be Catholics), 22.8% are Buddhist, and the rest adheres to various new religious movements including Jeungism, Daesunism, Cheondoism and Wonbuddhism."
And yeah, a person can be very happy without Christian beliefs, or any beliefs at all. Reasons for suicides vary... Branding atheism as sole reason, or even a reason sounds very much like normal Christian mentally challenged overconfident thinking.
If there's no heaven for you after you die, so what? There's no hell either. And that can actually make you want to live more passionately.
