Police on Thursday said a document left by Jang Ja-yeon before her suicide lists the names of figures related to sexual coercion the actress appears to have suffered. "Having read part of the document Jang wrote before she died, there were names of some persons who seem to be related to sexual coercion that Jang was put under. There is a possibility that another list exists," a police spokesman said.
Police said they obtained four pages of the document from broadcaster KBS, but Jang's ex-manager Yoo Jang-ho said the document was originally seven pages long. "The names of the related people appear in sentences in the obtained document," police said.
The broadcaster said earlier the document lists the names of senior public figures whom Jang was allegedly forced to entertain by her management agency.
Police suspects a more detailed list is contained in the remaining three pages. The announcement confirms what has been the stuff of rabid rumor on the Internet.
According to police, Jang's elder brother filed suit against three people including Yoo for defaming his late sister on Tuesday, along with four others, including the CEO of Jang's management agency, for sexual coercion.
