“Boys over Flowers” will end tomorrow but it seems not to be in the case of the late BOF actress Jang Ja-yeon. Up to now, the Korean police are still investigating her suicide note which allegedly detailed the names of those who sexually molested her.

The police are scouring all possible leads into the case including questioning journalists and media executives.

I hope that the police will wrap up their investigation soon to know what’s the REAL reason why Jang Ja-yeon committed suicide.

UPDATE: The Korean police seized details of the account of the head of the actress’ former agency.

Here’s more from Joong Ang Daily:

Police yesterday seized account information of the head of actress Jang Ja-yeon’s former agency as the probe into the events surrounding her suicide deepened.

The Korean government will be able to monitor the activities of its citizens on YouTube as it required the popular video channel to require Koreans to register their real names.

The new rule, which will start on April 1, will require South Korean citizens to register their resident registration numbers on YouTube. With such rule, the Korean government can trace down the identity of a person.

Here’s more from the Korea Times:

South Korea is looking at more ways to impose rules on Internet users and insisted that Google should behave in order to stay here. And after months of hesitation, the search giant now appears ready to bend and bow.

Koreans who watch YouTube will be required to use their real name.

When it comes to the hottest female pop group, most if not all Koreans would either name Wonder Girls or Girl’s Generation (also known as SNSD, an acronym derived from the group’s Korean name).

Both groups created a storm in the Korean music industry when they made their debut in 2007.
