On one hand I’m glad there was some justice served but somehow it doesn’t feel enough and others are still getting away with criminal behavior in K-ent. The judge has sentenced singer Jung Joon Young to 6 years, Choi Jong Hoon of FT Island gets 5 years, and Yuri of SNSD‘s older brother Mr. Kwon will get 4 years in prison. They will also have to complete 80 hours of sexual violence treatment program. Apparently the men started crying and tearing up when the sentence was handed down. Oh cry me a river, though it is satisfying to see these predators become powerless finally. The charges were actual rape (when they would have sex with unconscious women who had drank too much or did drugs) as well as the crime of filming the sex and then sharing those videos on group chats. Obviously these guys will be out in a few years but at least their careers are over so they can’t benefit from their position of celebrity to prey on women anymore.
I feel you.
This should be a success for Justice but it’s feels so bitter sweet. It feels like such a pint size success. Seeing how deliberate, intentional, how long they were able to these acts and how extensive the victims were vs their punishment.. *SIGH*
Plus the many other culprits that seems to have gotten away.
I mean Seungri still is out and about with only gambling charges being brought out. And he was one of the major enabler for these sorry excuse of a men.
Meanwhile You Know who still roams free after running an almost organized crime ring that exploited innocent woman and rabid fangirls still defend him despite the obvious. So, victory yeah but a small victory indeed.
5 and 6 years for rape? Aren’t those too short?
Yup,maybe they forget to count the victim!
Why no charges against that BB member? Am I missing something here ?
What about the other 6 on the chat? And that other one who is still walking free and have no charges brought against him except for gaming charges? Why is he not in jail yet? I can’t believe any women die hard fans is still saying that guy who is still free is innocent. I read some comments on other news blogs and these fans are defending him, and I am here thinking…you should be on the side of the victims.
I think the sentencing is too short, since the videos will forever be circulating on the internet and will affect the victims for the rest of their lives.
They are all pretty boys and their cases are rape which are highly hated inside the prison. They will have a hard time inside their prisons. It will be 4 or 5 years of hell for them.
