TV Actress Jang Commits Suicide

TV actress Jang Ja-yon committed suicide at her home in Bundang, southern outskirts of Seoul, Saturday, police said. She is 27.

She has been acting in a popular Monday and Tuesday drama series of "Man Rather Than Flower" on KBS TV 2.

Police said that Jang was found to have hanged herself to death on the in-house stairs to the second floor of her home at 7:42 p.m.

The police quoted her sister as saying, "She has suffered from depression, frequently staying at home alone recently."

Jang has lived with her elder sister, since her parents were killed in a traffic accident 10 years ago, police said.
