Late ‘Boys Over Flowers’ actress Jang Ja-yeon’s sexual abuse case reopened

On June 4, the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office announced, “Yesterday, we have received all records regarding Jang Ja-yeon’s case and the investigation has started.”

In March 2009, the actress known for her role in the hit series Boys Over Flowers took her own life. She was 29. She revealed through her letters that she was coerced into sexual relationships with entertainment heads. A report from SBS stated that the actress “hosted over 31 customers over 100 times,” but only the head of her agency and her manager were charged without detention.

With the statute of limitation approaching this year, the prosecution granted the clamor for a reinvestigation on the case, with many hoping for a fairer decision for the late actress.
