‘Jjak’ shut down after suicide
“We decided to cancel the program ‘Jjak,’ ” the station said in a press release on Friday, apologizing to viewers and vowing to try its best to prevent further similar incidents. The program was launched in March 2011.
The 29-year-old woman, surnamed Jeon, was found by her colleague early Wednesday in a bathroom hung from a shower head by a hair dryer cord with a note by her side saying, “I am sorry, mom and dad. There’s nothing more for me to say. It has been too painful and I don’t want to live anymore.”
