When Jang Ja-yeon killed herself
at her home earlier this month, she not only deprived
South Korea of a wildly
popular soap star. In a damning letter naming the men
responsible for the distress that may have caused her to
take her life aged 26, Jang heaped shame on the
country's entertainment industry with allegations of
sexual abuse and exploitation.
the seven-page letter, written a week before her death,
the star of Boys Over Flowers, South Korea's most avidly
watched soap opera, chronicled the sexual and other
favours she was expected to extend to progress in the
cutthroat "Korean Wave" of TV and film.
After making her debut in a 2006 TV commercial, Jang
cemented her fame as a vindictive schoolgirl in the
soap, and was awaiting the release of her first two
films when she died. Almost one million fans visited her
website in the 48 hours after her death, on 7 March.
Her allegations, leaked to the media, have prompted an
outcry and forced the police to investigate her
several powerful men.
The villain of the piece, according to
South Korean reports, is her agent, Kim Sung-hoon, who
is now in Japan following accusations he molested a male
model. Jang reportedly claimed
regularly beaten her and forced her to have sex with a
string of VIPs, including directors, media executives
and CEOs [the standard
group of people who use these high-class sex-slaves
(they don't have to be fully MK'd programmed slaves as
I've said, this is just one level of MK/slavery in the
entertainment industry) ACROSS THE WORLD, wake up]. She
was also forced to serve and consume drinks and to act
as an escort at golf matches, she wrote.
When police raided Kim's office, they discovered a
shower and bed in a
"secret room" on the third floor.
Kim has proclaimed his innocence, contesting that the
letter was part of an attempt by Jang's former manager,
Yoo Jang-ho, to ruin his business. Jang was reportedly
in Yoo's office when she wrote the note [it's been
confirmed as her hand-writing, obviously her former
manager isn't going to be innocent but
'managers'/celebrity handlers just follow orders; I
don't think it's too out there to think a few of them
might feel guilty about the treatment of them and try to
expose it like Yoo has done here], copies of which he
passed to her family. Yoo is now in hospital recovering
from a suicide attempt. [tried to kill him off?]
While the police investigate, the South Korean media has
finally condemned the industry for the way it treats its
most marketable -
and usually female - talent. [it's the same everywhere]
Film and TV viewers are now wondering how big a part
abuse and the demands of "slave contracts" played in a
spate of celebrity suicides originally put down to the
pressures of fame.
Jang's suicide, initially attributed to lingering
depression over her parents' death in a car crash 10
years ago, is one of several among South Korean
entertainers over the past year.
Three weeks after Jang's death, South Korea's huge
online community is still buzzing. "Popseoul," who runs
a celebrity gossip blog, said the actor's suicide was
part of a "tragic trend".
and abuse is the dirty secret of the entertainment
industry," [globally] she
said, adding that many
top celebrities, as former employees of seedy hostess
clubs, were expected to continue "entertaining"
producers and directors in their new careers
[this couldn't be more true of Hollywood also in
particular (and frankly everywhere else)].
"In many instances, the prospective star will meet the
VIP alone, who hints at casting her, introducing her to
another VIP or sponsoring her lavish lifestyle.
"It's just hushed up. It's part of the process of being
tragic end [I doubt any of these are actually suicides;
or if they were, simple psychological pressure/outright
MK self-destruct programming was employed (added
wiki/story links in for convenience) and is still murder
(police chiefs and the legal establishment have a vested
interested in keeping these kinds of things covered up)]
Jang is one of seven South Korean
celebrities to have killed themselves in the last six
a 36-year-old actor, was
reportedly mired in debt.
(right), 39, was worried she had
pressured Ahn into suicide. Model
23, was harassed on the net after coming out. Singer
30, was also under attack on the net over sexuality.
30, was said to have been depressed.
[sheesh], 26, left a suicide note online.
like an average Hollywood star
on the red carpet no?
so perfect and content how could
they be slaves?! Please check
this example from the Middle
for a slightly similar story
showing how these 'stars' are
used globally (America is just
patently obvious; from Marilyn
Monroe up to today). For more
Korean MK check out the film
"I'm a Cyborg But That's Okay."
I posted on,
and I go into Asia (mainly
Japan) in a Paprika
And just to give you some idea of how these "management
agencies" function (again this is globally organized by
the 'elite' and has always been a part of their culture),
"Bundang police on
Sunday raided the management company of the actress Jang
Ja-yeon, who committed suicide two weeks ago after
alleging the firm pimped her to several influential
figures and threatened violence if she refused to have
sex with them. Police said they raided a building the
company used until December 2008 and confiscated 201
items such as computers and contracts with entertainers.
The fugitive head of the firm, identified as Kim, bought
the building in Samseong-dong, southern Seoul, in August
2005, and used it as his office until October 2008. It
had two stories at the time of purchase, but Kim added a
floor and kitted it out as what looks like a brothel.
The ground floor was used as a wine bar, the middle
floor as office, and the top floor has a bedroom, shower
and karaoke facilities, the police said.
Police suspect it was there that Jang was forced to
serve drinks, act as an escort and have sex with media
executives, CEOs, producers and politicians who would
help boost her career."
red butterfly on
Jang (sort of stylized
Monarch looking [any butterfly is Monarch
symbolic though; I'd rather you not think of 'Project
Monarch' though specifically, it's more about the
psychological metaphor of the butterfly
(transformation/fragility/etc), I described it in that
Paprika post I linked to
before ((and the psychology of the media execs/CEO's who
use these 'butterflies' for their own twisted
pleasure)), which the below very symbolic scene is from
relating to this]) .
Edit: Not strictly related but I
thought this was kind of sad; Britney called her legal
team on January 21st to ask them to remove
her father's conservatorship
(total control over all her affairs),
source. Makes you realize how
helpless she is under corporate slavery (shows how her
kids are used as pawns by her handlers, at the present
time her 'daddy'), please see previous
Britney posts if you haven't.
