The shocking death of a woman who fell from the 23rd floor of a Sydney apartment has rattled those closest to her, with one friend regretting they hadn’t ‘looked after’ her enough.

The heart-breaking note of regret was left with bunches of flowers and other letters at a makeshift memorial for Hee Kyung Choi, known as HK or Emily to friends, on Wednesday.

Ms Choi, 34, was found laying a pool of blood in a laneway near her Chatswood apartment after falling from the building about 6.30am on Monday.  

‘Sincerely hope you can rest in a good place. I don’t think I looked after you as much as I could have … sorry for that,’ one card read in Korean. 

‘Sorry I couldn’t give you more interest or looked after you more. Rest in peace.’

Friends have described the woman as a successful career person and hardworking woman. She had passion for sports and was very outgoing. 

Shocked friends told Daily Mail Australia this week the former bank manager was intending to to Asia with boyfriend June Oh Seo, 37. 

Seo, 37, has been charged with assault after an alleged incident at 4.30am on Monday.

Seo sparked a 12-hour police seige at the apartment complex after police arrived to investigate reports of the woman’s body in the alleyway.

He appeared agitated and sat with his head in his hands before asking police for a cigarette and some water – using a translator to help him communicate his needs.

A witness who saw the woman’ body in the alleyway and called police told Daily Mail Australia there was blood all around her body and nearby walls.

‘We saw blood on the wall and assumed she’d been … clambering for life,’ a witness told Daily Mail Australia.

Police are still not sure how Ms Choi fell from the building.

Police were only able to begin their investigation on the woman’s body once her partner had gone inside – as his spot on the roof made the job too dangerous for police.

Superintendent Philip Flogel said the pair had been in a relationship for at least a couple of weeks.
