Police informed of death threats to Jiyeon
Partner Park, the agency representing singer and actor Jiyeon, announced Wednesday evening that they requested a police investigation into death threats sent to Jiyeon on social media.
“Jiyeon has been receiving publicly numerous death threats via Twitter and Instagram from an unidentified person,” the agency said in a statement. “We take this case seriously.”
The agency added that it is collecting evidence.
The case has been filed with the Seongdong Police Precinct in eastern Seoul.
Jiyeon, who debuted in 2009 in girl group T-ara, is working as a solo artist after the group disbanded in 2017. She has appeared in several television series including “Lord of Study” (2010), “Dream High 2” (2012) and “I Wanna Hear Your Voice” (2019) on KBS.
Meanwhile, a man who was allegedly trespassing on the property of another T-ara member, Soyeon, was arrested on Feb. 10 and is being investigated by police, local media reported Thursday. Soyeon was reported to have been out when the man was attempting to enter her home.
