Netizens angered by the low fine amount (800 USD) given to Jung Joon Young for soliciting prostitution

USER CONTENT

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). 


Comments include: 

"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.

There's a difference between sexual assault or rape and having consensual sex with a sex worker. If the 1 million won punishment is for him paying for consensual sex, then I'm fine with that. I think he needs to have harsher penalties for the other crimes he committed: filming people illegally and sexual assault.

Basically yes. There's no deterrent. You say something is a crime but give such a small punishment of course people are going to do it again and escalate.
