A story of a first-grade student getting sexually harassed by other students in the same class and the school's response is angering netizens in Korea. 


According to a viral online community post, written by the victim's father, the harassment went on for about 7 months, from March until the end of September, in an elementary school in Masan, Korea. 


The victim was forced to take off her clothes and urinate in front of 2 students, who are also in first grade and in the same class. 


The father wrote, "The harassers continued to watch my daughter use the restroom. Right now, my child is suffering from anxiety and has difficulty going to the bathroom." The victim also developed symptoms of PTSD, such as biting her nails and crying in the bathroom. The bullies also forced the victim to eat lunch by herself, calling her smelly and other names.

After finally discovering the child had been sexually harassed and bullied, the father asked the teacher and department of education to take swift action, but the two students got to stay in the same class as the victim. 


The father explained, "All that the school did was make my daughter sit a bit further away from them and asking the two students to use a separate restroom upstairs." 


He also wrote that when he kept his daughter at home, fearing her safety because of the school's lack of action, he received a letter from the school -- a letter that said that his daughter was missing school days without an acceptable reason. 


The Department of Education has responded to the concerns by simply stating, "The [Victim's father's] statement is inaccurate."

    Wow that's crazy!!!! i think the father needs to just enroll to other school!! If that particular school won't do anything to the victim, yeah she should just change the school. I still cant believe those who bullied her, what did their parents do to discipline them? If u are a bully since 1st grader I wonder what would they be when they are grow up?? The law system in S.Korea when it comes to children is pretty MESS UP!!! Tsk

    wow ok.... one of the things i don't understand, and this seems to be a trend among school in countries where bullying is a big issue (such as east Asian countries and the US) is that the focus of measures taken by the school is on "helping" the victim, and not on disciplining the perpetrators. Surely, if nobody is ever taught what they do is wrong, more and more victims need to be "dealt" with right? Why is it always the victims that need to change schools to avoid trouble, and not those who cause the actual trouble?

    you know what the norm for korean school dramas are? bullying. sexual harassment. both of those are taken very lightly and as jokes, as kids will be kids but that happens every single day for many kids. this happens at almost every elementary, middle, and high school in korea and no one does anything about it because the teachers don't care enough, the students are afraid they'll be the next victim, and two people speaking out doesn't change anything. suing the bullies and their parents and the school?? it'll do absolutely nothing. the justice system will be lenient as always. honestly, this stuff tells you a lot about the bullies' parents. how did they raise their kids to be so messed up like this?

    What's worse is knowing that there are probably tons of situations like this but nothing ever gets done about it unless it catches media attention. People shouldn't have to keep getting shut down to fight for changing for the better.
