Korea Exposé Event: “My Life Is Not Your Porn”

Blog

On Aug. 30, Korea Exposé hosted an event on the ongoing spy camera ‘molka’ issue in South Korea.

“My Life Is Not Your Porn,” powered by the Google News Initiative, featured two prominent critics of the spycam industry. 

Seo Seung-hee, left, is the director of Cyber Lion, a non-profit that monitors online sex crimes. Yunkim-jiyoung, right, is a professor at Konkuk University who researches the evolution of Korean feminism. 

We discussed why the current government measures — including widely promoted crackdowns on spy cameras in public areas — are encouraging but insufficient. We shared stories of victims who were mistreated by the police. We analyzed why and how the ‘webhard’ platforms, or P2P file-sharing websites, are turning a blind eye to the proliferation of spycam content. 

A full video of the event will be sent to our Patreon donors, and released to the rest of the public a month later. Go to our Patreon page for more details on the perks, so you can receive the benefits for the next event in September, on the conflict between Korean churches and LGBT rights.  

This event was organized and moderated by Haeryun Kang, managing editor of Korea Exposé, and translated by publisher Se-Woong Koo. Video and photos were taken by Youjin Do. Poster design by Subin Lee.
