MBC Announcer Song Ji-seon jumped to her death Monday, causing a major stir in the baseball world. She was 30.
Song, 30, was the host of a baseball show on MBC Sports Plus, and recently had caused a stir with a Twitter message two weeks ago which she was contemplating suicide. The sports channel promptly suspended her when a relationship with Doosan Bears pitcher Lim Tae-hon was brought to light, though he denies any involvement with the reporter.
The two had allegedly been dating for a year and a half, though he was also demoted to the minor leagues when the scandal surfaced.
Song had stated that the sexual messages left on her message board had been placed by a hacker, though many netizens refused to believe the rumor.
Song was set to receive disciplanary actions from the company when she plunged to her untimely death.
