“Unanswered Questions” Releases Voice Recording Of Jang Ja Yeon Prior To Her Death
“Unanswered Questions” first spoke to one of Jang Ja Yeon’s friends who had known her from long before she first began dreaming of becoming an actress. The friend commented, “Jang Ja Yeon was not a weak person. She was not someone who got pushed around, and she was a good person who was cheerful and witty. She was [originally] someone who fell asleep as soon as her head hit the pillow.”
She continued by stating that her friend’s dark transformation began after entering the entertainment industry. “When she got lost in her thoughts, she would just stare blankly, then say that she wanted to die,” recalled Jang Ja Yeon’s friend. “She began taking sleeping pills and gradually took more and more. Before that, she had no reason to be taking medication. Around the time she began taking sleeping pills, she started to have more secrets. She frequently became flustered and disoriented, and it seemed as if someone had gagged her. It felt to me like she was being pushed around. It seemed as if someone had something on her.”
“Unanswered Questions” used the voice recording of Jang Ja Yeon, which seems to suggest conflict between the actress and her agency, to support her friend’s claims. In the audio file, Jang Ja Yeon is heard speaking to someone who appears who be an employee of her agency, saying, “I did not do anything wrong. I was only doing everything my company was telling me to. I did not make any of my own moves. I don’t have anyone or anything at all right now.”
When the other person responds that he believes she must resolve the situation in some way, Jang Ja Yeon replies, “How can I resolve this? With what strength? I can no longer solve this with strength of mind or medication. If they want to kill me, tell them to. Look at what my CEO has started doing to me. Boss Kim is using extreme words and power to fool around with me.”
The late actress goes on to describe an individual by saying, “He is someone who is very powerful. He joked around that I met up with an old person, saying all kinds of things. They contacted me first, saying they were going to come and kill me.” Jang Ja Yeon also mentions receiving threats that they were not going to leave her alone, saying that she has no power in the situation.
