The "broadcast controversy" stepfather who had inappropriate contact with his 7-year-old stepdaughter is being investigated by police

AKP STAFF

On December 22, the Female Youth Investigation Unit of the Jeonbuk Police Agency revealed that they had started a pre-arrest investigation after receiving reports about the stepfather who appeared in a recent episode of 'Oh Eun Young's Report Season 2: Marriage Hell.'

In the previous episode of 'Marriage Hell' that aired on December 20, a couple appeared on the show due to the growing conflict over raising their 7-year-old daughter. The couple had remarried, and the wife had a 7-year-old daughter from her previous marriage.

While watching this episode, many viewers were shocked as the stepfather was seen in excessive physical contact with his stepdaughter despite the stepdaughter making her intentions clear that she did not want to engage in physical contact.

The problematic scenes show the stepfather playing "doctor" and poking her butt while pretending to give her a shot. Also, he was seen touching her chest area with the excuse of tickling the child and hugging her tightly on the floor.

After the episode aired, many viewers expressed their discomfort, and the scenes were removed from various OTT platforms where viewers could rewatch the show. Nevertheless, the stepfather was reported for molesting his stepdaughter.

According to police, the stepfather testified during the pre-arrest investigation that he is flustered. The family also expressed they are taken aback and said, "We appeared on the broadcast to keep the family together, and we're taken aback that such a controversy was raised." MBC's side also apologized, "We should have focused on the issue between the married couple, and we didn't carefully consider the scenes that the viewers could be concerned about."

The Jeonbuk Police Agency has requested the submission of data related to this family, as they have received previous reports about them in the past. A police official said, "It is difficult to reveal specific details as there is concern about secondary damage to victims of sexual crimes. We will carefully consider as we initiate investigations."

those producers knew some shadiness was going on, and they were correct to show all of the dynamics in the house for the well-being of that child. what’s not shocking about a grown man rubbing all over a 7 y/o who is yelling to both parents for it to stop? this needs to be investigated.

Warning bells went off in my head after seeing the video. It was very uncomfortable to watch. I hope he hasn't done anything more to the little girl beyond what we saw in the video.
