Jang Ja Yeon's Case Gets Reopened

Jang Ja Yeon, well known for her role in Boys Over Flowers, has had her case reopened after a petition was passed to have it reopened for investigation.
Jang Ja Yeon died in 2009 from suicide. She left a suicide note that exploited 31 names of people that have sexually assaulted her, which most people believed led up to her death.
Unfortunately, the case was closed with the main reason of her death being her depression. Only 2 of the 31 names were convicted and even then got minimal penalties for their actions.
Now, with the #MeToo movement gaining attention in Korea. Fans have demanded the case be reopened.

Authorities have decided to reopened the case, but there isn't long before the deadline of the case causes it to close

Still, it is a very big step for the #MeToo movement and hopefully a bigger step to get justice for Jang Ja Yeon and her family.

Hopefully Jang Ja Yeon will finally get justice for all the pain that she had to endure

(I mean so far, there's only 4 episodes out so far...XD) Synopsis: What would you do if you found out that you were, in fact, a character in a comic? And an extra character on top of that? Change the course of the story, obviously! Eun Dan Oh is a 17-year-old high-school student from a wealthy family who suffers from a lifelong heart condition that inevitably means she will not live past her teenage years. However, when Dan Oh realizes she is experiencing longgaps in her memory as well, she comes into the unhappy inheritance of another fact in her life: she is a character in a Korean webtoon and all of her actions are predetermined by the artist who draws her. To make matters worse, she discovers she is only a supporting character in the cast. With her newfound understanding of the world she inhabits, she is determined to find true love in her own plot-line and circumvent the author’s plans for her character by utilizing the flashes of storyboard she alone is able to see.

Except W had a serial killer in it...this one does not, or at least if it does it hasn't yet.
