Comedian Suh Se-won, who also heads an entertainment agency, was questioned by police in the suicide of the actress Jang Ja-yeon on Sunday.
Gyeonggi provincial police told reporters they questioned Suh in connection with allegations of sexual abuse left by the actress. Suh allegedly visited Jang's former manager Yoo Jang-ho when he was in hospital after a suicide attempt on Mar. 18 and told him not to go public with the allegations.
Suh allegedly threatened Yoo's career would be over if he spoke to the press. Police said they questioned some 60 people in connection with a list left by Jang that allegedly names prominent figures her management agency forced her to have sex with, and obtained statements from six of the nine people on the list.
The three others have yet to be questioned, they added.
