Singer Jang Yun-jeong is reportedly experiencing financial difficulties due to her family's failure to manage her assets.
Further complicating her personal life, her father filed a divorce suit against his wife early this year and a ruling is expected around next week, Jang's management agency said.
Since her debut, Jang has had her mother manage her income. But her mother and brother invested her money in a start-up that ended up losing hundreds of millions of won, the company added. Jang was shocked to discover what had become of her earnings late last year.
One of the most sought-after singers for festivals and events in Korea, Jang is said to now have little left except for a house.
