I've gotten several e-mails from concerned readers wanting more updates on this case. I've seen a few articles about it pop up in the media but apparently they've been routinely deleted from the top rankings every time a new one makes it up there.

  1. This whole situation is horrible. Hopefully our voices will travel far enough. Victims of sexual assault deserve justice. TT

  2. If their passports are confiscated by the dad, why not go to the US embassy since they're are citizens by birth, also Embassies are they're own sovereignty so Korea can stopped them.

    ReplyDelete
  3. They keep getting deleted? Damn powerful bastard.

    ReplyDelete
  4. The kid in the video said he is 13 year old I'm in shock somebady plz help them

    ReplyDelete
  5. It shouldn't be long before someone reaches out to them hopefully. Fingers crossed.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I agree. They should try askin hep to the U.S. Embassy if the sons are U.S. Citizens by birth.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Thank you for brining light to this situation in the first place. What they went through is beyond humane' imagination and those who did wrong deserve severe punishment. I don't wish death on anyone so they need to proper punishments so they can experiment what they put the mom and her sons through. #helpleejunghee

    It makes me sad to see several people dismiss it as a fake story so far. What if it's real? I don't want sit back and not do anything. I rather be called guilliable the rest of my life than a heartless person.

    ReplyDelete
  10. ikr... and scary as fck....

    ReplyDelete
  11. NB also, the link for the youtube vid is a tad bit off, forgot to hyperlink the first ' h ' in the http. But I got to it regardless. So thank you for posting it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm hoping at praying that they get the justice and freedom they deserve. And those assholes get their due for what they did.

    ReplyDelete
  13. how powerful he is that jurk and im shock of her family more especially her sister

    ReplyDelete
  14. That's what people keep saying over and over again, I wish they'd really
    try it. US officials can't do anything if they can't even find them.

    ReplyDelete
  15. her own family is probably dependent on him for $$$. So they're blinded by the money while not giving a shit about their own daughter, furthering her and her sons suffering.

    ReplyDelete
  16. whether it's true or not ,let's help them first.. i'd rather this is not true rather than true but i didn't do anything about it..

    ReplyDelete
  17. Seeing as how he runs a whole prostitution ring and all kinds of people are involved, so those involved people have to help him because if he is revealed then they will be, too. The issue is much bigger than it seems to be with a lot of people's self interests mingled in. But, I hope she doesn't give up! They need to be brought to justice.

    ReplyDelete
  18. In that case this woman and her children need someone just as powerful with a high status to spread the word or take her side. Praying for the best as well, she seems strong to have been fighting this long.

    ReplyDelete
  19. From all the evidence presented, it seems to be real! And the way they keep taking down these articles, it seems her husband is a powerful man with powerful connections. I feel this story is VERY much true!

    ReplyDelete
  20. since she's fighting against powerful people here, i hope she's not in danger. :/

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think her son mentioned that they were in a hiding? and the father is looking for them. So, I hope he doesn't find them. Hopefully, they have a safe place to hide and someone who can look out for them.

    ReplyDelete
  22. http://www.nytimes.com/content/help/site/editorial/op-ed/op-ed.html



    What about submitting an OP-Ed about this topic to the New York Times? I can work on one too. If enough of us write, one is bound to be published!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm not saying it's real or not. I don't know and can't claim it to be. But I imagine people, at least in the kpop area, might be reluctant due to various cases (such as that girl from Lovely's or Clara before everyone's opinion changed).

    While neither of those cases are nearly as extreme as this (and none of them were removed from news sites after being posted) it could still be a reason people are being more cautious in tuly devoting themselves to a side. In those cases, people rallied against the lovely's girl, and rallied for Clara, only to switch sides after new information came out.

    I'm not saying what's right or wrong about it, just giving some input into why people may be wary.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Agreed. If such a thing is happening to someone and you hold citizenship would be the right place to go to.

    ReplyDelete
  25. oh wow i didn't read about that, i'll keep her in my prayers.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I bet high officials are involved and business people. It's why they keep the red district open. Foreign business people go there during their stay. You're definitely right this is why it keeps getting burried. It'd embarrass a lot of people. They need to go to the embassy even if to get safe. They can be protected.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Those people need to spend a long time in prison. They can't possibly be right in the head. But some ppl are natural born wacko nut cases. Find strength y'all.

    ReplyDelete
  28. https://www.facebook.com/americansinkorea This is the US Embassy-Seoul's help page for American citizens in Korea. I'm at work now, but NB/anybody here who's good at explaining stuff, can you guys post about this situation there please? Maybe it will bring more attention hopefully

  30. no word can describe how i feel i how justice take its pace no body deserve to go throw this no body #helpleejunghee

    ReplyDelete
  31. Someone on one of the Reddit posts was downvoting everything because the translation used the word "stimulant" and "stimulants don't make you have sex with your kids", plus her media conference was held in a church "it's just a religious spat" blahblahblah.


    Some people are just like that unfortunately but it makes me furious to think of the apathy displayed if it's true.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The reason why this case hasn't been gaining traction in Korea is because there allegedly are powerful people involved, so media outlets would initially agree to film/write on them but back out suddenly.


    A Korean national writes a bit about it on a blog post here: http://lostintrafficlights.tumblr.com/post/122284379122/basically-that-horrible-case-of-helpleejunghee

    ReplyDelete
  33. Also a good alternate way to get this issue on top of Korean media without having articles about it CONSTANTLY deleted from the top search rankings is to make a social media PAGE about it (such as the one on Facebook now, also make one for Tumblr, Weibo, and ANY other social media sites out there in the world) where people can come together and discuss, support, and share it amongst their families and friends and amongst those friends' friends and so on and so forth as it continues into a snowball effect so large that almost EVERY Korean citizen will know about it REGARDLESS of whether it is on the top search rankings in the Korean media (which I have a feeling is being heavily controlled and monitored regarding this issue indeed).


    Anyways, just an idea.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oh and I'm also looking to get in touch with Amnesty International to see what they can help out with regarding this social justice issue.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If high ranking officials are being protected this just isn't about the mother and her sons. Something is going on. I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was to be investigated we'd see tons of politicians and business people involved. They're trying to save their asses. It's like the red district. Prostitution is supposed to be illegal in korea but it's known that foreign business people go there during their stays. I remember a couple yrs ago some rookie female idols were pretty much being forced to do escort services and the money they made went to their ceos. There's so much dirty stuff with politics, business, and the hallyu world all mixed in. I bet there's some idols involved. It wouldn't surprise me anyway. I hope they get word to go to the embassy. If this is getting around and deleted powerful people know and they're probably wanting to find them. The embassy can protect them since the children are citizens. I hope they're okay and that they get justice.

    ReplyDelete
  36. and don't forget that he is a pastor at church and their grandfather this bastard father is also pastor, the irony.
    praying is good, pray for them, but honestly we need people to take actions, be loud about it on social media, sign petition, increase youtube views, that's the real people lives at steak, that's when whole kpop community can finally unite and really do something meaningful

    ReplyDelete

    Getting the FineBros to do a video about this is an excellent idea. They did "Call Me Baby" within a week or so because of the overwhelming demand for it, so we should definitely try spamming their mentions about this.

    ReplyDelete
  38. He probably has a lot of blackmail material.

    ReplyDelete
  39. It really could be true. My friend's family used to be apart of a religious cult and they let her freely be raped by an older guy.
    This kind of shit happens

    ReplyDelete
  40. Lol not surprised. Perfect cover. How many times do you hear "oh he was a pastor. We never would have thought!" When something bad happens like this lol.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The story seems fake. why the mother refuse to take her kids to a US Embassy!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you everyone who's helped translate this into so many languages. Hopefully by all working together we can help these people.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm really hoping that this is just some messed up joke and they are messing with everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  44. By it getting on the internet she already is.

    ReplyDelete
  45. sadly I don't think saw ..my heart melted when I saw the mother crying ..

    ReplyDelete
  46. At this point I think that would make everybody more angry than relieved. People have already done so much for them.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh yes. Cults are big on that especially the leader of the cult. If you're not brainwashed into it damn you need to get out. Sounds like she wasn't.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I'd be furious that they lied, but I guess I'd also be relieved that they didn't really have to experience the horrors they describe. I'm not sure I believe three people would really make something this terrble up though. Maybe one very sick person, but three who all corroborate the story? Unfortunately it seems much more likely that they're telling the truth, and these terrible things really did happen to them.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Did she give a reason?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would rather believe that it's one big joke, than believe that their is someone on this earth that is as horrible as that man they claim to be their father.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Only thing I can think of is maybe she's not trusting anyone right now. Worried she'd be turned over or something. :/

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well yea i have heard many cases about the so-called religious cult that turned to be fake and they're using the followers for money and using women as sex toys.you won't even believe it that some of those followers actually came from impressive educational background yet they were still tricked by those evil religious cult.the followers will give everything to them,you name it all..even sacrificing their own family members.it's like they're under spell.

    ReplyDelete
  53. All I can think of is all their lives they've been abused and rejected by people who were supposed to help them, it might be frightening or hard to understand that American officials would safely take them in. Even normal people sometimes don't know that they can run to their embassies for help.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm worried about her and her children safety at the moment

    ReplyDelete
  55. I hate to be the one saying this but I really don't think anything can be done for her. She has no evidence besides her own words and her sons words. That will never hold up in court. Not to mention, almost all the articles are being deleted and buried. I feel like people will just eventually forget about this issue. Even if the story is true, people can't help them since they have no evidence.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think this is some kind of social experiment.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I'm on the same page as you on that. I mean, I'd still be relieved that none of that family had to go through any of what they described, but I's probably still be angry that they played with everybody like that if it was really just made up. I'm leaning towards believing it's true though. So many people claim on the internet to have gone through things but not everybody puts his or her self out there like this family has in order to seek protection. They have actively tried to seek help for years.

    ReplyDelete
  58. i'd hope its wrong no one deserve to go throw such thing no one ! i hope its a joke

    ReplyDelete
  59. i hope they go to jail forever if this turns out to be a all lie
    but i don't think there lying

    ReplyDelete
  60. the good thing is, he convinces people more of the story, you won't delete it inmediately if its not true, since there will be no evidence that can be given if its just a scam. The more he try to shut his wife's mouth, the more people's eyes will be open. Good will always win even if it's late, keep on supporting them guys? we're doing good. a lot of other country media are interested in this story already,

    ReplyDelete
  61. The husband have some powerful "friends", it's not surprising the articles are taken down. If he is caught, they will all be.

    ReplyDelete
  62. #HelpLeeJungHee was trending on Twitter (Turkey) yesterday

    ReplyDelete
  63. I actually searched this up a bit and it seems the government can't do much for citizens outside of the country unless they go to the U.S. They can give assistance but from my understanding they can only give assistance to the case but its more of a Korean court thing and also some time has passed so it might be even more difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  64. she refused? eh when? they just didn't go there yet i hope they do.

    ReplyDelete
  65. If it's fake why did the family put up the videos? Why is there actual articles of the family that have been taken down? Every time something about them shows up it gets taken down. "Social experiment" ?? Really???

    ReplyDelete
  66. In the previous article some people said Koreans have found his name et the church, was it false ?
    If the article are taken down we should never give up. Let this poor woman enjoy some free time with her sons away from her so-called husband and family.
    This would be at least one poison in less in this country.

    ReplyDelete
  67. ikr i was not surprised either, pops and pastors often claimed as the biggest perverts and pedophiles. but i was just seeing lots of 'i will be praying for them' kind of posts and tweets, and that's the irony, hope people will be real whistle blowers, i hope korean people too will try to make justice and at least let them leave country safely and hopefully US can take care of their safety.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ok. Think it's fake. That's your right.


    But if this is real, and you did nothing at all while blaming the victim for her inaction in a situation this horrible, then that's on your conscience.


    I'd rather believe this story and do what I can to help and, at worse, look like a fool than ignore a true story that ends up making me look like a heartless piece of trash.

    ReplyDelete
  69. disqus_BNpzkmLh6IJune 23, 2015 at 9:47 PM

    i'm sure there could be some medical checks? or some checks on the residency of the family and they might be able to discover the said drugs?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I know her story is very horrific but why would she be doing all this to get noticed if it wasn't true, not to mention she's getting her own sons into this so I believe it is real even if it is hard to believe for some people due to the atrocities that she wrote about, is something that we need to realize that is posible to happen and that she might not be the only one.

    ReplyDelete
  71. All I can say is if this story is TRUE she could have taken her kids to a US Embassy.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I don't care about articles and rumors. If I was the mother I will make sure that my children are safe.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Maybe she's afraid for her and her son's safety,maybe she's contemplating it, maybe she's considering it. That doesn't mean we can completely disregard her story and pinpoint it as false.

    ReplyDelete
  74. god my heart is breaking watching the videos, and listening to the sons tone of voice, its like a straight heartless tone, it almost like they have no sense of feel anymore, how much trauma they have been going through? god, lets help them guys, dont give everyone!

    ReplyDelete
  75. but you're not in her position and you haven't gone through what she has. You know nothing. That's just your personal opinion on what to do.

    response so far is really underwhelming. this needs to be viral for foreign media to pick this up as a news story. we need some #icebucketchallenge2.0 to spread this

    ReplyDelete
  77. if they have been given regular drugs or wtv their father gives, im sure there will still be trace of it, and the mom and they boys were raped, there will definitely be a mark here and there

    ReplyDelete
  78. they were smart to use youtube! i really hope it keeps spreading!!
    but will mentioning the korean press shutting it down really force international news outlets to pick it up? while i definitely think they SHOULD & we should all challenge governments; i would assume that some places wouldn't want to challenge the government of another country...

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wouldn't it be bad if people found out this man's name? I mean if word got back to him, it would put them in even more danger.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Maybe their father has connections there since he knows they would go there for help

    ReplyDelete
  81. We can't help them find justice but we can help them get out of the situation and stay safe. Unfortunately, as people keep saying, the us embassy won't be able to help much -- the children, yes, but not the mother. She's a Korean citizen.

    ReplyDelete
  82. "She did it, I didn't give it to her" "they're gay, I can't help that" -- unfortunately, as with most rape cases it's he said she said. I wish it was different, but that's the sad reality.

    ReplyDelete
  83. there is malaysian articles that i read about this issue.... i feel so sad reading the comments...it pissed me off because they commenting like 'why did you hashtag if you want to save her' ah this must be a lie... blabla.. and people put some swear words there saying it stupid to to that... i can't even..... i dn't care if this real or not... we are just trying to save/help her and people keep saying ah you kpop kids are stupid believing this kinda stuff.. what if this happen to they own family ... so ignorant... i'm so sad of what of people commenting there... its not about kpop... its about humanity.....

    ReplyDelete
  84. I feel the same way. I don't want to believe stuff like this happens, but it does. I would have more doubts if I didn't know people who have had some bad experiences.

    My husband's coworker's daughter went to teach English in an Asian country and the people who recruited her tried to kidnap her as soon as she left the airport. She escaped, called her family and got on the next plane back home. It turned out that this "company" was looking for American women for human trafficking and sex trade. I still can't believe that really happened to her. This was about twenty five years ago.

    So it happens and it is hard to believe.

    ReplyDelete
  85. The problem is she hasn't shown her face. CNN won't air a story on the internet because if it turns out to be a hoax, they will be a laughing stock.

    ReplyDelete
  86. **NOTICE**


    We will be trending #HelpLeeJunghee on Twitter @ 12:00 AM KST on 6/26.

    ReplyDelete
  87. there needs to be some celebrity or tv personality to just blow this up - i know this may not be the best way to get this known but unfortunately (fortunately?) celebrities have a lot of power in the media esp social media if we can get one of them to speak up about it...

    ReplyDelete
  88. Lets try also to tweet https://wwe.twitter.com/GrigsbyBasset
    He's the U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea.

    ReplyDelete
  89. another quick way to help this woman is contacting the American embassy. Americans here will be more helpful in contacting.

    ReplyDelete
  90. I find it suspicious that the Korean government is keeping them down. Maybe the father has connections to government officials...

    ReplyDelete
  91. You're all gullible retards.

    ReplyDelete
  92. God damn, of course every mother would want to keep her children safe. The fact that she managed to get them out of there is amazing already but the mother can only do so much. Everyone has turned their backs on them - the police, the officials, the media - and that's why she's asking us for help. You don't care about articles and rumors? Those articles and rumors could possibly help save their lives at this moment. They need as much exposure as they can to get word out. This woman has gone through so much trauma and she's doing her best to save whatever that's left of her and her two sons. This just happens to be one of her last resort.

    Have you even watched the video? The three of them have explained that they're in hiding and they're all fucking terrified because one mistake could get them caught. While going to the US Embassy is a good plan, getting there might not be simple for them. They've been forced to have sex with hundreds and thousands of people and I bet most of them are on a watch out for them too because if things get revealed, those same people would be fucked too. They're obviously very powerful people with lots of connections seeing as how they're constantly burying all the articles and news about this. The only thing we can hope for them now is that people will continue sharing their story and that someone powerful can finally reach out to them.

    Also your comment makes you sound so narrow minded...

    ReplyDelete
  93. send it to John Oliver he may help them

    ReplyDelete
  94. In case people weren't aware, Junghee and her son bother posted 2 posts each, and I've gotten them all translated which you can find at myeongiessi.wordpress.com
    If anyone can find anything else related to her and her case, I'll be more than willing to translate it

    ReplyDelete
  95. Unfortunately, I heard another reason why SK media might not press this or is interested in it is because of MERS

    ReplyDelete
  96. I think we all know the real reason things are being deleted. This is totally related to government corruption. They're trying so hard to keep this under wraps.

    ReplyDelete
  97. For those living in Australia here's Foreign Corrrespondents contact page http://www.abc.net.au/foreign/contact.htm They are a current affairs show focusing on international issues & they just recently did a story on South Korea's extreme education & hagwons. Even if you're not in Australia, please try this as another media outlet to get this woman's story out to the international media.

    ReplyDelete
  98. im not the only one pointing this out but if authorities of her own country arent doing a thing about this, she should go to the US embassy since her kids are citizens... its so sad how some people tend to dismiss things like this or even ask victims to reconcile with abusers... these people should be punished and hopefully all these petitions can put pressure on the authorities to do something asap

    ReplyDelete
  99. there is actually not much evidence but the fact that the news articles are being taken down should be very, very, very telling. why would they be deleting it if not because there is truth in it?

    ReplyDelete
  100. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ogq3pjS_aCc&feature=youtu.be



    LETS SHARE IT!!!

    ReplyDelete
  101. Why are they covering their faces? How do you expect us to help you if we don't know who you are. Why don't they mention their dad's name so we know who the bad guy is? Why do they sound like they're reading from a script? Why do they sound so normal if they have been getting pounded in the ass by their dad and 300 other strangers since they were 3 and 7? So many questions. I want to say fake and I hope it is.

    ReplyDelete
  102. As long as it can be trending outside korea i believe theres hope. What kind of crazy woman who write this stuff just for attention if this proves to be fake? And why everytime it becomes first in search rankings, it will be deleted soon?

    ReplyDelete
  103. I don't believe this story I cant believe South Korea this big country are controlled by bunch of people.
    and they don't want this woman for some reason to reveal the truth.
    South Korea is not some third world country you know.
    they actually have a female president and laws .

    she could have chosen easier option which is to call nearest US Embassy and ask for help.

    English is not my first language.

    ReplyDelete
  104. any story that embarrasses or tarnishes the reputation of the korean government as a whole are usually taken down. i dont know if its true but it seems like everytime something bad happens with the government they "cover it up" with an idol "dating" scandal. that is what it seems like. please correct me if i am wrong. but thats what it seems like to me......

  105. amaya aguero monzonJune 23, 2015 at 11:02 PM

    It all seems fake but until I am sure that it is I will try to help by at least spreading the word about it !

    ReplyDelete
  106. thats what ive been thinking, else why havent they gone there yet..i think the only way they can let the story out, is by internet. Im afraid there wont be any justice that can be done, since a lot of powerful people are involve. this is soo frustrating

  107. But still, these type of cases shouldn't be dismissed as fake or not worthy because it sounds like something cults would do.
    Hell, not even cases in which the participants belong to a cult should be dismissed, especially if the ones involved obviously don't want to carry on that kind of life.

  108. its sad that thats exactly what her mother wanted, she keeps saying just save my children, i think she already know that nothing can be done for her, but for her sons, maybe theres hope. God, this bring tears to my eyes.

  109. When I started seeing the kids talk about what they suffer I felt very conflicted because I went through something similar and I remember not wanting anybody to talk or want me to talk about it and going into cutting because of the horrible memory I know that the women is trying to stop this but I am wondering if there is any way to bring awareness to this case without bringing awareness to them. I don't know it's just very conflicting. I wish that she run away with her kids to the united states and lived there but I am sure that it is not right letting others suffer.

  110. Well as someone who firmly believes there are people who are capable of this and much worse, I would hate to hear that this is all a joke, because not only would these people have preyed on the sincerity of others, but they would have made light of the issues that plague other families who have gone through stuff like this and who weren't able to speak out to the public and reach an audience that was willing to hear them. Imagine, that instead of trying to help a family of liars, we could have been helping people who actually needed it. That is what would make me angry, but suppositions aside, I do believe this family is being truthful. I'm choosing to put my faith in the fact that these people are getting the help that they need.

  112. It's fine if you don't believe the story. Whatever. But it's not fair for them to have you claiming your opinions and telling them or at least the mother that she should have done this or that as if you know what it's like to be in her shoes. I don't think she would have gone this far just for it to be a hoax either. There have been pictures that circulated to have shown that the lady did indeed try asking the media and police for help last year. But they're getting deleted.

    And regarding South Korea... I wouldn't trust the government either. There seems to be some shady business going on and seeing as how they've been handling the MERS situation lately just raises my suspicions. I believe Sewol would be another example.

    Also, your english is fine and understandable

  113. 1.) In a lot of countries child sex abuse victims are usually kept anonymous, their faces and identities hidden to give them a better chance to start another life. 2.) The names of the dad and grandpa, the church and the place have been mentioned several times in the other thread here in NB 3.) They talk haltingly like their English is rusty, because hello they're in Korea 4.) EXCUSE YOU, we didn't know that victims of child rape are supposed to sound a certain way. Did you want them to be sobbing pitifully and begging while crying?

    people think it's fake because the situation is too cruel and too imaginative to be the truth. But to be honest, people who think so , usually don't understand how cruel the world can be.

  116. Some higher-ups are clearly fucking with the awareness of this issue. I'm glad it's out in the open, because punishing her husband is going to be the hardest part if he has these kinds of connections. I wish nothing but the best for her and her kids. This world can be horrible.

  120. Here's the thing though: even if it's fake, who do we harm by sharing this and trying our best to help? Prostitution rings aren't myths; even if this turns out to be false, we can help bring awareness to victims who's stories are much similar to Junghee's. And this is IF her story is false.

  125. Idk. He seems to be connected with people who seem to have high status and influence. Those people are most likely officials/businessman/part of the media/ etc. The reason why they're deleting the posts is because if word gets out and they get caught, it would jeopardize and embarrass them.

  126. then more the reason to believe the veracity otherwise why keep deleting them?


    and uhhh different things though? we don't even exactly know who the perpetrator exactly is, or if he is in the government at all, just that he hold a position of power.

    I think that the story is too unbelivable to be true (not saying that it can't be) and in the video they seemed so calm when talking about how they have been raped by 300 people and so on and I read somewhere that they refused to go to the american ambassy (don't know if it's true) but for the most part I think the history disgusted me soo much that I really wish it just ins't true ! and also why doens't she reveal the name of the husband and the people she sued. The only thing right now that is making me belive the story is that the articles keep dissapearing as soon as they are put out !

  143. I think they're telling the truth. I watched their Korean video and the way she says she seems to be in huge guilt for participating in the acts with her kids. She kept saying "It's all my fault. I was one of them (the abusers) so arrest me and save my kids." It broke my heart seeing her crying and asking to be arrested while wanting her kids to be safe.

TV, radio, the police and the church that's involved are all staying quiet. There aren't even articles about this on sites like NAVER. Only NATE has one or two articles which are very few considering how huge this issue became among Korean netizens and internationally.

    If it's a social experiment, then we're doing a terrible job at showing some humanity right now. A lot of people are rather wary of the story and literally do nothing, even though it wouldn't take that much. That's sad.

  175. "Contrary to popular perception and a lot of careless news reporting, embassies are the sovereign territory of the country in which they are located, NOT of the country whose diplomatic mission is housed there. That is why an office building can host an embassy on some floors and, say, a bank on others.

    The reason for the misperception is probably that the Vienna Convention states that the local government foreswears the right to enter an embassy, and diplomatic immunity protects the diplomats working inside. However, this does not mean that that space is somehow transmuted into UK (or other) soil or legal territory for purposes of law enforcement."

    It's shocking and I just found out recently. Embassy =/= foreign soil. It's a grey area.

While their job scope is to fight injustice yet they are sitting on their lazy brown nosing butts and let injustice happen and get all their salary by doing nothing and just supporting corruption. Heroes aren't born, they're made. Everyone who sees this injustice and who has power but ignoring it because of fear needs to step up and be a hero.

  182. one of the problem is that koreans are very religious. According to reports the grandfather is a big pastor in korea. I would not be surprised if some celebrities were involved in this if he is a highly sought out pastor. I was wondering why NO CELEBRITIES have said anything because if they did this news would of caught fire very quickly. It kind of makes sense.
    This isnt confirmed but they said the grandfather and the father church is Sungmin Church in Yangpyeong, Gyeonggi-Do. And there are some celebrities that got married at a church in that area. Not sure if celebrities got married specifically there. But if he is the widely known church the chances are riding high.

    That's why it sounds fishy. It it's not true, they would let articles running around but it seems like someone(s) are paying to take the articles to be taken down. His husband and the organization behind this might be a very powerful people that are maybe a member of Mafia and cult organization. To be honest, I usually read stories like this in Wattpad with a rate of SPG because of it's content of brutality and I always choke when there's an obscene scene/part but what more that this was brought to real life? I just can't imagine how Lee Jung Hee and her 2 sons have gone through for living a life like hell and families & relatives are your No. 1 opponent. I hope justice will really prevail this time.
