The production crew of SBS’s current affairs culture program ‘Unanswered Questions’, which has brought social repercussions with the report of ‘Jung-in’, asked to keep an eye on the tragic case.
In the case, the late Jung-in, adopted by her adoptive parents at the age of 7 months, died 271 days after adoption. On the 2nd broadcast of ‘Unanswered Questions’, the incident was intensively reported.
The adoptive parents claimed that Jung In-yang’s death was “played with the first on the sofa and the second fell, an accident.” However, an emergency medicine expert who was in charge of Jung In-yang in the emergency room at the time was believed to have resulted from the abuse of Jung-in’s body. The show shocked the public by revealing evidence of violence against Jung-in.
In this regard, the production crew of ‘Unanswered Questions’ through a written interview with Maeil Economic Daily’s Star Today, “I cried a lot while covering the ‘Jung-in’s case’. Not only the production crew, but also many experts who worked with this case shed a lot of tears during the interview. It was an incident that was shocking and unfortunate for many people.”
After the broadcast of ‘Unanswered Questions’, Jung-in’s tragic death caused a social repercussion. Not only was the voice calling for strict punishment for adoptive parents raised, but also the ‘Unanswered Questions’ production team and the ‘I’m sorry Jung-in’ memorial challenge proposed by the Korea Child Abuse Prevention Association also contributed to the challenge.
This commemoration was conducted by writing the phrase that he wants to write along with the phrase ‘I’m sorry Jung-in’, and taking a photo for authentication. Lee Yun-ji, Jang Seong-gyu, actor Han Hye-jin, broadcaster Park Seu-lgi, actor Seo Hyo-rim, and many other stars were with them. Actor Lee Young-ae made a donation of 100 million won to Asan Hospital in Seoul, asking her family to visit Jeong-in Yangpyeong’s cemetery in person to remember and prevent another Jung-in from being created.
The production crew of ‘Unanswered Questions’ said, “I am really grateful that so many people will be interested in participating, so I am very grateful,” and “I ask you to pay attention to the end so that this case can be completed well in the future.”
“There will still be children who have been abused everywhere in our society. Therefore, it is our goal to fully reveal this case to remember Jung In-i’s sad death, and to prevent such a child from appearing again.”
While requests for the sequel to the ‘Jung-in’s Case’ are being continued on the ‘Unanswered Questions’ side, the production crew said, “After the broadcast, many people are watching with sympathy and interest, and I know that other media also report a lot about this. have. In the future, ‘Unanswered Questions’ must be done, and if there is a role that is necessary, of course, we will follow-up reporting, and we plan to watch the trial process in the future.”
Meanwhile, on December 9, last year, the Seoul Southern District Prosecutor’s Office arrested Jung-in’s mother Jang for child abuse and lethality under the Special Act on the Punishment of Child Abuse Crimes. Mr. Ahn, Jung-in’s adoptive father, was indicted without custody for neglecting abuse. The trial will be held on the 13th.
