Korean professor arrested in USA for abusive sexual contact

August 14th, 2014 . by Errol

Lee Eun-jong, 47, a Handong Global University professor, was arrested for allegedly groping a sleeping woman on an airplane, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Lee was arrested by FBI agents after the plane from Tokyo landed at Newark Liberty International Airport on Sunday night.

During the United Airlines flight, the victim awoke to find Lee’s hand on her shirt, touching her breast through her clothing, the complaint alleges.

Lee then allegedly touched the victim’s neck and attempted to place his hand down her shirt.  When she told him to stop touching her, he quickly left his seat and headed to the bathroom, the complaint alleges.

The woman reported it to flight crew members, who contacted the FBI.

Lee, who was charged with abusive sexual contact, showed up in Newark Federal Court Monday. He did not enter a plea.  If convicted, he faces up to two years in jail and $250,000 in fines.

Korean boss sexually harassing Australasian employees?

August 14th, 2014 . by Errol

Bae Dong-in, a Korean Education Ministry official, has been accused of saying, “Women with large breasts are dumb” in front of Korean Education Center New Zealand  staff, and of frequently using abusive language toward them.

A KECNZ staffer said Bae also “sexually humiliated” female employees with unwanted comments about the efficacy of small red penises or gochu.

In July of last year, the former director of the KECNZ was forced to return to Korea over accusations of misappropriating school funds. Bae replaced him the following month and has sat and stalked around the New Zealand office since then.

Korean old men to be asked not to harass little girls

In the Culture Section of the Joongang Ilbo on 24 June 2014, Sung So-young reports on the culture of older Korean men.

Chief inspector Kim Man-wuk, who works for the special victims unit at the North Chungcheong Provincial Police Agency, often has to take on sexual abuse cases involving vulnerable people such as minors or the mentally disabled.

But he recently got away from his daily routine to do something else: lecture elderly men in their 60s and 70s on what constitutes a sex crime.

Kim gave the talks at 14 different senior community centers within the province between March and May.

“Working for this special victims unit, I’ve realized many old men sexually harass little girls or women with intellectual disabilities in their neighborhoods,” said Kim.

The chief inspector arranged for the lectures to be conducted in plain language in the hopes of “preventing some sexual crimes by older people.”

“I asked them not to touch the breasts or private parts of girls even if they think the girls are cute and pretty,” said Kim.
