Last week, it was reported that SM Entertainment had requested an investigation into the spread of the photoshopped nude pictures of Girls' Generation. The agency had stated at the time that they would be taking legal action against those behind the creation and the distribution of the composite photos. It seems that the police has now caught one of the perpetrators.
The person behind the wide-spread distribution of these photos has been identified as a man in his 50's; he's been booked without detention.
Although the age of the man may be surprising in itself, what's gotten the public's attention is the man's job.
The individual, called 'A' by the Korean media, is reported to be a 53 year old government employee in Yeonsugu, Incheon.
'A' is being charged with uploading the composite photos (made with Girls' Generation dressed in hanbok and pictures of nude females) in December of 2011 during his work hours on an internet cafe site.
'A' admitted that although he had uploaded the photos, he had not created the photos. The police stated, "He stated that the photos were not created by him, and all he did was upload them on the [internet] cafe site."
