Jang Yoon-jung’s Mother Arrested For Fraud

Jang Yoon-jung’s mother was previously involved in a controversy.

In May, 2013, Jang Yoon-jung’s family drama was aired publicly. It all began when Jang Yoon-jung reported that her mother spent her money, almost $10 million, because of Jang Yoon-jung’s younger brother.

Then, her mother and brother decided to share their side of the story on tvN’s E News. Her brother said, “My current company took a huge hit [from the scandal]. Because of the press coverage, the company became a victim and its credibility was questioned. The honest company needs time to regain its image from the tarnished reputation,” and, “I’ve never caused Jang Yoon Jung any trouble. Her debt is because she didn’t take care of her savings properly. She previously said that she didn’t have any problems managing her funds.

Her brother continued, “I lived quietly because I didn’t want to be a burden to my sister, but it’s ridiculous how she brought us down. The situation became like this and I can’t understand how she can just leave it be. She wasn’t like this. I’m worried that our relationship looks strained. She’s preparing to get married so I want to be careful that I don’t want to rain on her parade. However, I think regaining the company’s reputation is the right thing to do for the sake of my co-workers. I’m not trying to attack.”

Her mother also commented, “My heart hurts. It’s a shame that other people know about our family’s issues and I wonder why she did that. Why did she backstab her mother who took care of her for thirty-three years? I’m fine, but why did she do that to her brother.

Jang Yonn-jung didn’t give any comments regarding her mother and brother’s statements.

Not long after the controversy, Jang Yoon-jung announced her pregnancy with her first child. In response, her mother released a letter to her anti-cafe.

Jang Yoon-jung's mother letter

It’s already been a year, but you haven’t changed at all. You were on a show recently and talked about the soup that you used to eat when you were little. Are you a human? I made you that just a year ago. You used to eat what I cooked for you saying that only I could make something so delicious!

Who cooked it for you when you were little?

And you lied like that, and then hid at your in-laws’ house. Even if you had ten mouths, you shouldn’t act any way you want. You b*tch, I was thankful and happy just because you and your brother grew up so well even though we had nothing. Before I went to the police station as a victim, I went to your house. A young man looked at me and cursed at me. Don’t worry… Ha! I’m so speechless. I’m not going to try to see you any longer, either. Let’s go to the end if you want.

I heard a hospital car was waiting, too? You deserve to die. Just wait, the law is still alive. They say that for a historical celebrity’s marriage, there were only 50 bodyguards. I’m so speechless. Marriage? That’s your sin. But how are you doing lately? There are many people who comfort me and tell me never to forgive my daughter, and those who cry with me. They ask how I raised someone like you.

I’m going to your Bucheon concert. I’m going to see you perform. Try dragging me out. I heard you dragged Noori out at Chungju. How can something like this happen in the world?

I’m going to go to your dinner show. I’m going to go to the 1000 songs you record. I’m not going to rest until the world turns against you. Let’s be together until your evil group kneels in front of me.

If you make me an insane woman and make me go to the hospital, what will you gain from it? You try living with a child. Just give birth to a daughter just like yourself and make sure you hear that you’ll be put in a mental hospital and that there will be a Chinese person to kill you. You’ll then know how I feel.

December 5th, 2013, from Yook Heung-bok who dropped you into the world.”
