On March 17, Ku Hye Sun dedicated a heartfelt post in memory of the late “Boys Over Flowers” actress Jang Ja Yeon who took her own life in 2009 (10 years ago).
The post shows an older poster taken from the drama, behind you can see Jang Ja Yeon who played one of the mean girls in the drama, Sunny in the back.
“The unnie who gave me hot packs for my hands. The unnie I regret not having a single photo with. Rest in peace in heaven. You’re a beautiful soul.”
Jang Ja Yeon suicide case rocked the entertainment industry back in 2009 because of its nature. The actress committed suicide 10 years ago leaving one final letter revealing all the men she was forced to sexually entertain. The names were huge influential figures in the business and entertainment industry.
The police tried to suppress the list but a portion of it made it to the internet. Back then, only two people were indicated in her death, her agency CEO and her manager.
In 2018, people petitioned to reopen the case to investigate in light of a new witness coming forward which turned out to be Jang Ja Yeon’s former colleague Yoon Ji Oh.
The status of limitations is expiring soon and people petitioned to the blue house to keep investigating the case in hope of punishing everyone who had anything to do with her death.
Yoon Ji Oh came forward and revealed her name risking her life to bring justice to the late actress; she has been taking part in witness interviews and doing her best to bring people’s attention to the ongoing investigation.
Netizens were extremely furious that only two people were ever prosecuted for Jang Ja Yeon’s death. The recent developments in the case give hope for justice to prevail.
