Talent Head Arrested Over Suicide
Kim, 40, was hiding in Japan since December until the Japanese police captured and repatriated him to Korea lastweek of 7/6-10 week. The police concluded that Kim is responsible for forcing Jang into entertaining and drinking with reporters and executives of financial firms. The agency chief was charged with sending threatening text messages and hitting Jang with a plastic bottle. The police, however, were not able to establish that Jang was forced into providing sexual favors for any of them.
Aside from Kim, the police also requested an arrest warrant and indicted without detention six other people relating to the Jang scandal.
The news of Jang's suicide, a starlet from the hit TV drama "Boys Over Flower," became a huge scandal in the local entertainment industry after Jang's suicide letter implied that she had provided sexual favors for members of the Korean media at her agent's urging.
