Jang Yoon-jung condemns photo scandal

16 Feb – After an alleged fake nude photo of Jang Yoon-jung went circulating on the web, the trot singer finally decided to report this matter to the police and asked for a cyber investigation.

According to HanCinema website, her agency stated that the photo is a highly-skilled photo-shopped image that took her face and pasted it onto a naked female's body. Sources from the police say, "It is highly possible to rule that it is a fake photo just by looking at it. We need to confirm the charges from the prosecuting side to fully begin our investigation."

Jang Yoon-jung's agency said, "Although we can say that it is fake photo without a doubt, the photo was spread under Jang Yoon-jung's name through various P2P sites and social networking services. Netizens probably had misunderstandings due to this fact."

Meanwhile, Jang used humour to mock the situation via Twitter, posting, "I admit the face is 100 percent mine. But the body! I don't have such a glamorous body. Although I'm laughing at this ridiculous photo, I promise that the person who started all this won't be laughing by the time we get to the bottom of it".

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
