Gov't to disclose information on fathers who don't pay child support

The government is pushing ahead with a plan to disclose personal information about parents refusing to pay child support, according to the Ministry of Education, Thursday.

During a ministerial-level meeting, Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Yoo Eun-hae announced that her ministry will seek all possible measures to support children and adolescents from single-parent families so that they can receive quality education and care.

"The education ministry plans to disclose the list of those ex-spouses who do not pay child support as it is not simply a financial issue but an important matter that is closely related to children's survival," Yoo said.

There is already a website called Bad Fathers, disclosing the personal information of men and women accused of refusing to pay child support. Their ex-spouses provided identifying information such as name, address, occupation, date of birth and even photos of them to post on the website, which was founded in July 2018.

Goo Hara's ex-boyfriend receives finalised prison sentence from Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of South Korea has made its final decision on Choi Jong Bum’s case involving Goo Hara.

In September 2018, Goo Hara and her ex-boyfriend Choi Jong Bum got into a physical altercation. Choi Jong Bum initially reported to the police that Goo Hara had assaulted him, and Goo Hara countered by reporting that Choi Jong Bum had blackmailed her with a sex tape and threatened to end her career. Both were eventually forwarded to the prosecution on separate charges, but Goo Hara received a suspension of indictment while Choi Jong Bum’s case went to trial.
