Former entertainer and artist Jung Joon Young has been fined 1 million KRW ($809.52 USD) for soliciting prostitution.
Netizens are angered by the low fines that both Jung Joon Young and former 'Burning Sun' director Kim received. Kim was fined 2 million KRW ($1619.04 USD).
"Is this how the Nth rooms came to be? Because the punishment is this weak?"
"This is amazing for a developed country..."
"Korea's laws are clearly rotten."
"Can we even call this place a country.
"This is cheaper than a bottle of alcohol they would buy at a club."
Meanwhile, Jung Joon Young has also been sentenced to 6 years in prison in a separate trial in November 2019 for illegal camera recordings and sexual assault.
