The extent of the sexual harassment allegations against veteran actor Jo Min Ki is starting to come to light and it’s horrific. No wonder the university fired him so quickly, though one wonders how long the university has known but turned the other cheek until more people vocally spoke out in recent days. Currently there are more than five victims who have given police statements about being sexually harassed by Jo Min Ki when they were students in his acting class where he was the professor. Apparently his behavior was so well known the male students had a written protocol on how to protect their female classmates – never let a girl student go see Jo Min Ki alone and don’t drink at events so they could stay sober and protect the girls. UGH!!!!! I hope his ass gets jail time though it feels like too little and too late. The police has stated that once its investigation is complete with victim interviews it will summon Jo Min Ki for questioning.
He is gross and disgusting. Anyway, kudos to those male students who took consideration to protect their female classmates from this predator.
This guy died? Saw some news in BBC 9 Mar 2018.
This kind of article didn’t even attract any reader
But insulting an actress face as paralyzed is such a smart and hilarious way of writing . Kudos!!!!
Lols triggered fan girl.
Lol thanks you noticed me!!!! Love ya ❤️❤️❤️❤️
What does Oh Yeon Seo’s lackluster performance in Hwayugi have got to do with Jo Min Ki article? Didn’t you swear that you would stop visiting Koala’s playground ? Lmfao
you have been outed. Get lost you multi-usernames can’t-stand-up-to-your-own-comment LOSER! Stop infesting this site, you rat!!
Your words showed how much educated you are.
Better than someone who is a turtle!
Don’t know whether to smile that those male students are so nice and supportive to their female classmates, or to be furious at this bastards audacity to be so openly a predator knowing there’s no consequence. Ugh, he should be disgusted at himself. Young men half his age has the heart and the brains to be so level headed in wake of him being a snake.
I hope this means there’s hope for the younger generations, that there are higher chance these issues will be much less repeated in the future.
I think highly of those young men for having the decency to protect their female friends and classmates and go so far as to have protocols in place, but I also feel rage that such a thing was needed in the first place because of that monster and the university that enabled and shielded him and turned a blind eye to their own students’ suffering. End him!
He’s a good actor but it’s time for a housecleaning and trash like him needs to go.
kudos to the male students for protecting their female classmates.
i am speechless by this bastard’s audacity! he should rot in jail. i can’t imagine how many students have been victimized by him and just how long this has been going on.
I can’t believe I had a good impression of him before the allegations came out. Goes to show that no matter how you think you know celebrities, the truth is you know nothing about them or their lives. Here’s hoping that justice is served and this guy will face actual legal consequences for his actions.
Those men who protected their classmates from this predator were well raised and the hope of our future. Those women who came forward with their painful experiences are brave and strong. I hope Jo Min Ki will forever regret this.
Many will sacrafice acting careers which explains the hesitation until now in this very male controlled industry and business in SK.Standards and values are not negotiable for the victims speaking up which is good. Well done and brave.
It’s so impressive but at the same time, very disturbing that those young men had to have a protocol to protect their female peers. I can’t even continue to read the detailed allegations against some of these men, it’s just so disturbing and my heart breaks for his victims. I hope the law doesn’t let them down this time. Other abusers (hopefully in different circles like politics and business) probably have a hard time sleeping at night.
I’m also waiting and desperately hoping for individuals in powerful positions to be exposed, the purge has to occur at the top too and they are always the most protected class of abusers.
I really hope it doesn’t stop or just fizzle out, abusers need to be exposed and action is necessary for it. Firing rapist actors from dramas is just a start but I hope the people behind the scenes (producers, investers) who deal in such behaviour are exposed too.
Yes, a shout out to the young men for their contributions and help in dealing with the situation as best they could. This also shows though that everyone had to know, including other profs and administrators and they did nothing.
This utter trash, I hope he goes to jail and never hurts another woman. I also hope this coming into the public eye can give his victims some peace so they don’t suffer any more. I can’t imagine how wronged and frustrated they must have felt all these years, seeing him going around acting like he was this respectable senior….he’s disgusting.
So the university just fired him but failed to make a report to the police? We all know this type of predatory behaviour is enabled by the bystanders who choose to turn a blind eye when the victims are suffering, and the abusers are very well aware of the fact. Women are afraid to go to the police, because they’re either laughed in the face or seen as “damaged goods” in the eyes of the society. “Oh she must have done it for the money”, “she should have screamed”, “she should have not worn that” et cetera.
There’s also recent news that Oh Dal Soo dropped out My Ahjusshi because of another sexual harassment scandal. Sighs, so many of these cases in the industry makes me depressed.
Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My website is in the very same area of interest as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from some of the information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you. Appreciate it!
I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this specific issue plus it really does present us a lot of fodder for thought. Nevertheless, from what precisely I have observed, I really wish when the comments pile on that men and women stay on issue and in no way get started on a tirade associated with some other news of the day. All the same, thank you for this exceptional piece and though I do not concur with it in totality, I regard the perspective.
