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.

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