Open World Entertainment CEO sentenced to 6 years in prison


The CEO of Open World Entertainment, who was charged earlier this year for sexually assaulting his female trainees, has been sentenced to six years in prison.

On August 10 KST, Judge Yoo Won Jae of the Seoul Central District Court officially sentenced 51-year-old Mr. Jang to 6 years in jail as well as 40 hours in a sexual assault treatment program. His file will also be available to the public for 5 years.

Prosecutors previously requested a sentence of 9 years on July 29 despite a petition filed by Jang for favorable treatment on July 12 and a written letter of apology he sent in on July 18. He applied for bail, submitting withdrawals from three out of four victims who filed complaints, agreements, and parental consent forms, but it was denied. Mr. Jang also received a court warning for making threatening phone calls to ‘female A’, who agreed to go through with the trial.

Jang was taken under custody this past April for sexually assaulting female trainees in his own agency from November 2010 to March 2012.

Hope he dies, and did they blur his handcuffs? Is that a thing?

So gross he coerced those women to submit all that nasty paperwork. Disgusting.

Does South Korea have laws where sexual assault offenders are not allowed to be near people? and also, ugh.

ONLY 6 YEARS!? He deserved at least 10 tbh.
bluehachimitsu 10th-Aug-2012 11:05 pm (UTC)
6 years doesn't seem much and isn't fair enough for the victims, but i must say that it's a start for this sort of crimes in this industry :/ ... The pig will sure have the time to think about what he did wrong.

Do people in South Korea stay in prison all the years they're sentenced to? Because here they almost always get out sooner, because of "good behaviour" and other stupid issues. Hope this isn't the case for this poor excuse of a human being. Six years is already not enough.

deserves to rot in jail longer, what a disgusting excuse for a human being.
ashiva 10th-Aug-2012 11:11 pm (UTC)
Should have got more jail time, but at least he got more that he would have probably got in my country.

"parental consent forms" ಠ_ಠ
liferule91 11th-Aug-2012 12:09 am (UTC)
he probably paid them off it's really disgusting though
odd_fish_stick 10th-Aug-2012 11:13 pm (UTC)
he should be banned from working with minors and any position that leaves others vulnerable, specially females, forever

Six years is not enough.

Bravo to "female A" for not taking a deal and having the courage to go through with the trial.

lysblack 10th-Aug-2012 11:46 pm (UTC)
ugh he deserved much more than that.
cagallisakura 10th-Aug-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
Only six years, are you fucking kidding me? Korean law really needs to get its shit together. Can he please accidentally fall in a ditch to rot and die?
ideservestars 11th-Aug-2012 12:13 am (UTC)
Seriously only six years? I'm also wondering, did he step down from his position in the company?
jia_zhang 11th-Aug-2012 12:13 am (UTC)
Wow. Six years? Are you fucking kidding me Korea? /disgusted
asnindie 11th-Aug-2012 12:22 am (UTC)
I hope the sentence isn't reduced and he should never be allowed near minors again the disgusting waste of space.
fancifury 11th-Aug-2012 12:30 am (UTC)
I don't blame the other members from backing out, but good on Female A for putting this fuck in prison. Rot.
bear100 11th-Aug-2012 12:58 am (UTC)
bye dirty man
rinn1e 11th-Aug-2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Instead of the handcuff, they should blur out that word 'boss' on his jacket.
katzsong 11th-Aug-2012 01:01 am (UTC)
Well, a part of me is saying that 6 years isn't enough, but another part of me is a bit glad that he got sentenced at all. At least, I hope for a full 6 years, he won't be roaming of the streets and harassing people. and I hope he will never be allowed to be near kids/younger people or something like that.

This was my first thought, I just didn't want to be the one to say it.
eishastan 11th-Aug-2012 01:13 am (UTC)

shineebambi 11th-Aug-2012 01:35 am (UTC)
