I watched this earlier and thought it was weird how they said something like he should face the consequences "because he's a celebrity" (oh so regular people don't matter??) and then came the question about sharing "these kind of" videos with friends and so many people nonchalantly admitted their friends or they knew people who did this which is disturbing because to me it sounds like they just see it as a form of porn you can just consume like any other thing, no thought expressed on the lack of consent, probably bc it's "regular people" so it "doesn't matter"?? Jesus. I didn't realize this issue was this bad in SK.

Yeah, spy cams are quite common from my understanding. The attitude towards it really expresses why no one even cared. To me it reads like the outrage is that they may have been the ones creating it but in the same breath these people don't seem concerned about passing it around if it's available

The "because he's a celeb" stuff makes sense when you think about it though. It seems Koreans are the opposite of Americans where they think celebs have an obligation to be good role models for society. That's why their standards are so high and idols get criticized over every stupid little thing--I think they see them as a reflecting on Koreans as a whole? Great recent example is Soyeon having to apologize for using pirated software when almost everyone in Korea has illegally downloaded something at some point. Same with smoking...it can be a scandal for an idol even though iirc most adult Korean men smoke.
