Jang Ja Yun commits suicide

Posted in Drama, Hana Yori Dango by Jae on March 15, 2009


A little over a week ago, Jang Ja Yun, a cast members of Boys over Flowers committed suicide. It was speculated that her death  was due severe depression stemming from the deaths of her late parents when she was only 16.

However, it appears as though her manager has come forth with some rather disturbing news. It turns out that Jang Ja Yun had hand-written some documents outlining the reasons for her suicide and sent them to her manager so that he could speak out for her.

The manager has yet to reveal more specifics regarding the documents but he did state the contents to be very shocking and disturbing. He only said so far that there were incidents at room saloons and bars, and being forced to sleep with the production director (PD). Other abuse include being physically beaten with water bottles and receiving threatening text messages. All this abuse took place in the past year and even just a week before she committed suicide, she went to the head of her company to ask for help from the harassment. But she was beaten and told to just endure it.

She confessed in her letters that she was forced to do the dirty deeds, because she had no money and was emotionally weak. Jang Ja Yun’s manager made a public statement that although exposing her truth to the police and media is going against her family’s wishes, he wants to see the person pay / punished for her death.

It is a dirty business. It really makes you question how often this kind of thing occurs behind doors. I’m utterly disgusted by the way her company handled this situation. RIP.

    That is crazy. I am surprised that sort of treatment can go unnoticed for so long. Shouldn’t the manager have been more aware of Jang Ja Yun’s predicament?
