"We are at the mercy of men," sexual assault and rape in North Korea

CW: sexual assault, rape, harassment
Harrowing accounts of widespread sexual abuse allegedly carried out by North Korean officials against ordinary women have been laid out in a new report, that details evidence of a culture where officials commit acts with near total impunity.

The extensive 98-page report by Human Rights Watch (HRW), which was released Thursday and took more than two years to compile, is based on dozens of interviews with sexual abuse victims who have fled from North Korea. It reveals an oppressive world where officials -- from police officers and prison guards to market supervisors -- faced virtually no consequences for their routine abuse of women.
"Unwanted sexual contact and violence that is so common in North Korea it has come to be accepted as part of ordinary life," the report alleges.
Sexual violence in the country is "an open, unaddressed, and widely tolerated secret," said Kenneth Roth, Human Rights Watch's executive director. "North Korean woman would probably say 'Me Too' if they thought there was any way to obtain justice, but their voices are silenced in Kim Jong Un's dictatorship."

OP note: The entire article goes on to talk about an account from a former police officer, virtually nonexistent conviction rates, and more statistics.
I knew things were bad for women in North Korea, but this was quite eye-opening. The level of corruption is shocking and I feel for all these poor women.

The Return of Superman Ep 247

Sian, Sua & Seola

Collapse )

This was the episode that aired on 2018.10.21. This isn't the whole episode, it's missing about 20 minutes and one family. But the people who upload the KBS YT hate me. Yep, I'm taking it personal. Anywho, in these clips...Donggook tries to teach Sua and Seola a lesson about getting along. Then they go to a car wash and Sian is just so precious. William and Ben get a tasty surprise in the mail. Then they head to a traditional market for a meal. Naeun and her family gets ready in the morning, and we get to see her in her kindergarten class. So cute that her teacher is the only one allowed to do her hair lol.

MNET and JYP Team Up For Internship Survival Show

'Super Intern'

In a teaser released for the show on October 31, Park Jin Young explains the concept of the show. “Is the problem that the youth unemployment rate is over 10 percent? Or is the problem that they think the job application process isn’t fair?”

He continued, “I won’t look at anything. Your academic credentials, your gender, your personal connections – none of it matters. Apply with confidence. What I can promise is a really fair judgment.”

On November 1, Park Jin Young wrote on Instagram, “Talent looks for companies and companies look for talent. I am looking for people to upgrade JYP to another level. I believe that you can only find new methods with new employees and that’s why I agreed to this program. Please apply.”

“Super Intern” will search for new employees to work at JYP Entertainment not based on age, gender, academic ability, or work experience, but instead on their passion to work at JYP and their vision for the company.
