On April 18th Yoon Ji-oh announced on Instagram that she was personally facilitating a candlelight vigil for Jang Ja-yeon in the near future. The announcement clarifies another Instagram post from April 15th, which was unclear about how the candlelight vigil would be funded or organized.
Yoon Ji-oh has stated that due to security concerns she has not been able to find anyone to help her organize the vigil. Consequently, she has decided to do the preparations herself. Yoon Ji-oh emphasized that this is not her personal battle but society's battle and hoped for continued support in that regard.
Later on an SNS live broadcast Yoon Ji-oh stated that funding the candlelight vigil would be difficult. Yoon Ji-oh said she had looked into the costs necessary for preparing materials and wasn't sure how she would be able to put it all together.
