[HanCinema's News] Yoon Ji-oh Clarifies Statement Regarding Jang Ja-yeon and the "Casting Couch"

2019/03/20 | 535 views | Permalink

On March 19th, Yoon Ji-oh appeared on the news program 'Tonight with Kim Je-dong' to discuss the Jang Ja-yeon case. Come March 20th, Yoon Ji-oh posted extended thoughts on the topics discussed during her interview, namely her use of the term 'casting couch'.

Specifically, Yoon Ji-oh talked about how Jang Ja-yeon was forced to the casting couch and how Yoon Ji-oh desired to restore her fallen friend's honor. The ambiguity of the term would appear to imply that Jang Ja-yeon willingly participated in the sleazy practice of letting herself be seduced by unscrupulous men for the sake of career advancement.

Yoon Ji-oh went on to discuss how this implication was used to defame Jang Ja-yeon at the time of her death, as reports would commonly suggest that the infamous Jang Ja-yeon list was actually a will or a neutral document of some sort. Yoon Ji-oh maintains that it was a list of people who needed to be subject to criminal investigation.

Yoon Ji-oh also referenced the apology she received from MBC Newsroom and hoped that further regret may be more forthcoming from a news media that was not so honorable at the time of Jang Ja-yeon's death. She thanked followers for their continued support as well.
