Yesterday, the National Institute of Scientific Investigation claimed that Jang Ja Yeon's letters could have been fabricated. Today, SBS's "8 o'clock News" released an interview with the chief of the International Forensic Science Laboratory, who refuted the reports of fabrication. On March 10th, SBS reported that they had given copies of Jang Ja Yeon's letters to a professional for a second opinion. After thoroughly studying the documents, Lee Hee Il, chief of the IFSL, revealed, "In these letters, the way that certain characters like 'yo' and 'ya' were written coincide directly with the writing habits of the late actress Jang Ja Yeon. The way the consonants and vowels were written are exactly alike, proving that these letters were written by the same person." [caption id="attachment_234700" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="Comparison of the handwriting in the letter on the left, to Jang Ja Yeon's original handwriting on the right"][/caption] SBS further added, "It is virtually impossible for Jun to have perfected the handwriting of Jang Ja Yeon by copying the picture of her suicide note from a newspaper. He could not have written 230 letters in her copied handwriting with such limited information, and it is also unlikely that three years worth of letters were merely the result of a concocted plan." They continued, "The letters also reveal detailed information regarding her agency's advancement plans, as well as information on the figures she 'hosted' that others would not be able to know. If anything, the letters and envelopes show that Jun tried his best to make sure that Jang Ja Yeon's identity was not leaked through the letters."

He demanded, "The police are fooling the public. This is not the first time that investigators and the police pretended to reveal 'information' to the public without any proper evidence or information on even a portion of the case. You must stop this immediately." Netizens also refused to believe the reports by commenting, "Just because the envelopes were damaged does not mean that the details of the letters were fabricated." On March 8th, a women's organization had opened a press conference in front of the Ministry of Gender Equality & Family building and demanded that proper investigations be made. Once the Ministry failed to react or respond, one netizen began a silent one man protest in front of the Ministry of Gender Equality Building for two hours on March 10th. He held a sign that read, "A Ministry of Gender Equality & Family that remains silent in the face of Jang Ja Yeon's controversy has no right to exist in this nation."
