The Return of JMS & The Rise of #MeToo

In February, to mark the release of cult leader and serial rapist Jeong Myeong-seok from jail, I wrote Cult Leader, Convicted Rapist, Free Man: The Story of JMS for Korea Expose. The timing seemed quite ironic as Korea’s #MeToo movement was gaining momentum just as a man I believe to be one of Asia’s most prolific rapists walked free.

On April 4, a Korean article entitled  #MeToo와 JMS: 전자발찌 찬 정명석의 행보 주목 explored the same issue was published. I thought it an appropriate companion piece to my article. A rough English translation is available here.
