Some of my friends in Korea have kinda confirmed that similar attitudes are prevalent. Like the scandal is big due to police corruption and the drug scandal rather than the date rape issues.
There’s also an element of guessing who the victims are so that some segments of the public can shame them too.

Can your friends say how women in general feel about it? Are most women angry/disgusted with it? Or is it only some women/young women?

Most young women here (20s 30s) have their eyes glued onto this scandal and are disgusted by it and also shocked. A coworker brought it up while looking at her phone and they were commenting on how scared their last girlfriends would be. My other coworker also thinks anyone who’s friends with them who witnessed the videos are also criminals.

I have no idea how men feel about this since after one bad experience I will never let them into my life again. The men in this video did not shock me one bit. So typical and shit men say here every day.

Thank you for the insight. I feel so bad for women there having to fear for their privacy everywhere they go. It's psychological terrorism.

Most of my friends are feminists, so you can guess at their response. I have no idea about the rest.

Wait, what? 'Similar attitudes are prevalent'?
I too was of course disgusted by the smiles while talking about rape in that video, but you're saying that's what generally men are like there??

Just that it's not as big a deal police corruption. Plus there was already a big scandal regarding hidden cams in Korea recently and the only ones seemingly concerned and protesting were feminist groups.
And I don't think anybody should be that surprised by the attitudes of men, after all a lot of people still do believe that R.Kelly, Michael Jackson, Woody Allen, Roman Polanski, Bryan Singer, and Harvey Weinstein deserve a chance (to name a few).
