    Actress Kim Mi-sook
    Police have arrested a woman who has been stalking a popular actress for a record 17 years. Paju police in Gyeonggi Province said Wednesday the 39-year-old woman only identified as Kim was arrested on charges of stalking the actress Kim Mi-sook for 17 years and, in the latest instance, trying to blackmail her for W100 million (US$1=W932).

    According to police, the stalker put a note on the actress’ door on Aug. 10 that read, “Don’t call me a stalker. You are asking for trouble by calling me that.” On Aug. 17, Kim delivered a note through a guard to the actress demanding money. Kim was arrested on charges of threatening the actress four times last August after police followed the rather obvious lead of Kim’s telephone and bank account numbers on the threatening note.

    Kim had already served three years in jail for burgling the actress’ office in 2001 and threatening her in 2002. She started stalking the actress again in early August, when she saw a TV program about the actress' move to Paju. Kim Mi-sook reported the threats to police because the stalker had apparently figured out what time the actress' children come home after school. The stalker told police she was unmarried because of an aversion to men and insisted she was innocent and had no intention to threaten the actress.
