On March 20, Moon Ga Young posted a screenshot of the online petition to reveal the identity of the nth room users on her Instastory. Baek Ye Rin followed and also posted the screenshot on her Instastory on March 21, urging netizens to sign the petition.
'Nth room' is a series of Telegram chat rooms that share illegal porn and violent videos exploiting women in exchange for money. The criminals created chat rooms, each holding hostage of the victims' personal information to make victims do whatever they or the users wanted. Users have to pay in order to access the chat room. Most orders were gruesomely sexual and violent, such as putting a pair of scissors in the vagina. Out of 74 victims, 16 were underage.
The creator of the original 'Nth room' is unknown and still at large, however, one of the main criminals under the username “Baksa”, a Korean man in his twenties, was captured by the police on March 19. Many are demanding the police to reveal his face and punish him harshly, and petitioning to reveal the identity of the users as well.
