Former K-pop girl group T-ara members Park Soyeon, 33, and Park Jiyeon, 27, have been terrorized through stalking and death threats.
Someone posted on Twitter and Instagram threatening to kill Jiyeon.
The person, the “angel of death,” told Jiyeon, “Beware of your surroundings, milady. I am everywhere, watching you. You can’t see me, but I can see you.”
“I hold your life. I will decide when will I touch and end you, Ms. Park,” the person tweeted along with the date and time “06.06.2021, 0:33 PM Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.”
Partners Park, Jiyeon’s agency, said, “Jiyeon has been getting threats on Twitter and Instagram from an unidentified person. We are collecting evidence and have requested police to launch a formal investigation for Jiyeon’s safety,” the Korea Times reported.
On the other hand, the suspected stalker of Soyeon was arrested by the police after breaking into her apartment building.
The suspect, a man in his 30s, went to the building at 10 p.m. last Feb. 10 and pressed the doorbell on each room in the building. Soyeon was not home at the time.
“The stalking started early last year. Soyeon has been having a hard time as (the person) kept coming to her building,” said Think Entertainment, Soyeon’s agency.
It was reported that the police investigated the case recently and Soyeon said she has been harassed by the stalker for years and was threatened with murder.
Jiyeon and Soyeon debuted in T-ara in 2009. Soyeon’s contract with MBK Entertainment expired in May 2017 while Jiyeon, along with other members, left the agency upon the expiration of their contracts in December 2017.
T-ara became popular with their hit songs “Roly-Poly,” “Lovey Dovey” and “Bo Peep Bo Peep.”
