Aren't they being too harsh? Two years, and 18 months. They only abused children, it's not like they used drugs, or were caught gambling.

I thought it was obvious.

Their trauma is going to be forever. Good to know that this guy is not even feeling guilty to begin with since he believes that he needs to appeal.

Men truly exhausts me nowadays. I hope those kids will be loved and protected now >< At least, there's a punishment here even if two years is just ridiculous.

::sigh:: i guess it's something that they got convicted and sentenced to some form of jail, but it's so mild it's basically an insult.

while it's good this guy got convicted there are so many k-pop company CEOs who are abusive that will probably never be taken to trial
