Iron gets suspended sentence for assaulting girlfriend

An appeals court upheld rapper Iron’s 2016 sentence of eight months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, after a lower court found him guilty of multiple counts of assault.

The Seoul Central District Court on Thursday found Iron, 26, guilty of assaulting his former girlfriend on several occasions, including an assault during a sexual encounter.

He was also ordered to perform 80 hours of community service.

Iron was booked without detention in September 2016 after punching his girlfriend in the face while they were having sex. The police report said he had done so for “not listening to his requests.”

The following month, when the victim tried to end the relationship, Iron strangled her and hit her in the face multiple times.

The police investigation found that the rapper issued threats to stop the victim from reporting his violence to police, at one point injuring himself with a kitchen knife and saying he would blame it on her.

The court also censured Iron for revealing the victim’s identity in media interviews and publicly calling her a masochist.

“The victim is suffering tremendous psychological pain, on top of the physical ordeal she has undergone,” the court said. “She continues to appeal for severe punishment.”

Iron was convicted in November 2016 and the prosecution appealed the sentence, seeking a year of actual prison time.

“It wouldn’t be strange to hand an actual term to the defendant, and questions remain as to whether he truly repents of his wrongdoing,” the court said, admonishing the rapper to apologize to the victim and make amends for his crime.

Iron was present at the court and acknowledged the court’s reproach.

In November 2016, Iron also received a sentence of eight months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, for marijuana use. He did not appeal the sentence.

80 hours only? wtf? Smoking marijuana is admittedly so much worse than destroying a woman... nice >> #valarmorghulis

Lock this demon up forever or give him the lethal injection. He does not need to be in society or the world tbh.

why won't korea grasp the concept of taking out the trash and having it brought to the dump to rot for eternity?? letting this pos free is littering

He's a legit sociopath and I'm praying to god that when he finally snaps and kills someone it'll be someone out of his little douchebag crew rather than another innocent woman

Wait so what the hell will it take to finally get this human piece of garbage an actual prison sentence (though 8 months as if that's enough) if he can just be convicted of a crime while he's already on probation and still not get jailed? How does that work? Is he seriously getting off easy with community service when this man should not be allowed to show his face in ANY community? He is a total monster and just the sight of him makes my blood boil.

Endless respect to his ex for putting herself through all of this again and again trying to get him to face some consequences. She doesn't deserve this (and he deserves so much worse).

wth! Having a wild pack of hyenas tear him up would be cruel punishment for the hyenas. What a total of the earth.

Wow he needs a way longer sentence to show this kind of behavior is unacceptable to others. And they also need some workshops and classes for young kids in Korea and all over the world about misogyny, consent, etc. you need to start young to make sure kids grow up to know women are human beings too. Preventative measures should be preferred

I thought suspended sentences were things reserved for rich connected politicians, not broke bitch rappers. What a shitstain, both him and Korea’s justice system.

He's horrible and I doubt he'll learn anything from this.

i genuinely wonder what a man can do to actually end up in jail. assault another MAN?
the list of things he did over the years just goes on and on and on (which includes drugs which is supposed to be biggest crime in sk) and he refuses to stop and then his family goes after victim because he is ~poor and his life is hard~. and each time it's still slap on the wrist.

At this point I'm pretty sure this trash is the son of rich parents, otherwise nothing, absolutely NOTHING justifies this weak ass 'punishment'.
