A 54-year-old man who suffers from schizophrenia was sentenced to a prison term for harassing two high school students. 

According to the court document, the man approached two high school students who were eating ddukboki (spicy rice cake dish) inside of a convenience store in Wansan-gu, Jeonju at around 1PM. He harassed the girls by first asking, "Have you ever had sex with a man?" It did not stop there. The man reportedly whispered to the girls, "If you want to have sex, I will pay you. Come follow me outside the store. I will pay you a lot." 

The students, shocked by the sexual harassment, called the cops immediately and the 54-year-old was arrested at the scene.

At the police station, the man denied the allegation, stating, "I was giving them guidance. I never said those [inappropriate statements]. I thought they were prostitutes." However, the convenience store's security camera had captured the entire incident, including the man's gesture that seemed to imitate sexual intercourse. 

The court of law sentenced the man to 8 months in prison and 2 years of probation. He also must complete 40 hours of rehabilitation for sexual deviance. The judge stated, "Considering the defendant had a history of sexual crimes and that the victims could not have their innocence restored [from their shock], it is appropriate to sentence him to serve in prison."

Mental health facility would be more usefull to that guy.

Mental illnesses like that are incurable. People with illnesses like that can be dangerous to be around people and should be sent to a clinic where they can't leave. And by clinic, I mean the ones where it isn't like prison, they can go outside and walk around the premises, play games, socialize, have visitors..etc. Just not be in the outside world where they can harm themselves and innocent people.

This old fella needs help for sure

InvisibleBBC02 Sunday, October 30, 2016

Shouldn't he be sent to a mental institution? Prison ain't gonna help him that much, just saying...

One of the reasons I prefer AllKpop over any other site is the current event articles like this, that help to bring more information than just the music world. But calling the man a "creep" in the title and then stating that he is mentally ill in the article... that is very wrong.Not everyone with a mental illness is like him. A mental illness cannot be used to excuse his behavior. But calling him a creep reinforces the idea that those with mental illnesses are wrong/dangerous. Can the title please be changed to state the truth and not an opinion? He can be proven to be mentally ill, but calling him a creep is the author's own interpretation.

mi_goreng kai99 Saturday, October 29, 2016

but i think that this article doesnt suggest that people with mental illnesses are creeps like him? you cant deny that what he did was really creepy..

kai99 mi_goreng Sunday, October 30, 2016

It was extremely creepy, but a better title would be "mentally-ill man". The structure of using creepy and only explaining that he is mentally ill AFTER making that comment subconsciously makes a connection for most people that mentally ill = creepy.

I understand he needs to be punished for this crime, but shouldn't he also be getting some kind of treatment for his mental illness?

IARMY93 BakaKaori Sunday, October 30, 2016

Thats what i was thinking

Sad, but not surprising, considering there are quite a few high school and college students that work as prostitutes to be able to afford more plastic surgeries or just pay the university fee... Prostitution is supposed to be illegal in Korea, but it is quite obvious that they should start taking it seriously and punish severely the mafias that run these kinds of business and the clients as well.

pink_oracle arasseo Saturday, October 29, 2016

These were high school students hanging out in a store in broad daylight, not fucking prostitutes. They're completely innocent and did nothing to invite this sicko's behavior. Put the blame where it belongs, the man had a history of this sort of shit.

arasseo pink_oracle Sunday, October 30, 2016

If it is hard for you to understand my comment then try to read it slower. What I am saying is that law should be enforced so that clients and mafias would be punished to avoid this kind of situations. This guy thought those poor girls were prostitutes because it is not that unusual for high school students to actually sell sex. If the law was enforced and clients of this kind of services were punished girls would not have to endure this kind of situations, whether they sell sex or not. Or what, would it have been ok for you if he was harassing underage prostitutes? Would it be ok for him to bother underage prostitutes? So tell me, for you there are two kinds of women? I was plainly saying that no underage girl should be bothered by anyone, and that no underage girl should be encouraged by anyone or anything to sell her body (social pressure, urge to need money, whatever reason it might be) and saying that is not putting the blame on anyone, but saying that Korea's government should focus its attentions on this kind of matters. And judging by the tone of your comments it seriously seems that for you it would not have been such a problem if he was harassing underage prostitutes... Wow... your morals. And honestly, I find very offensive that you refer to prostitutes as "fucking", many women in this world that see themselves in that position are victims of human trafficking, so referring to them as "fucking" is absolutely unnecessary and tells me a lot about the kind of person you are.

pink_oracle arasseo Sunday, October 30, 2016

Well clearly you have never come across swearing before. Fucking when not used in a sentence in place of a word meaning to have sex is used to emphasize frustration or anger. Like when I say, of course I fucking don't think prostitution is ok, I don't mean that when I think this thought I am engaged in intercourse. Now let's look at your post again and why no one agree's with it. You imply that a lot of Korean teens are immoral whores who will sell themselves for plastic surgery. This is highly offensive and a lot of people reading here thought you were a douchey shit to say it. So in fact no one really had a chance to take in what you said about punishing those who are involved in prostitution. And I maintain that this man did not think or care that they were prostitutes. He was a schizo prowling for sex who'd done such things before. He accused them of being hookers because he was vile, not because every other teenage Korean girl is a hooker.

arasseo pink_oracle Sunday, October 30, 2016

"Fucking" is a very offensive word referring to those women, so no, it is not justifiable to use it to talk about them, whether you like swearing or not, it is absolutely out of place here. And no, I have NOT implied that those Korean teens are immoral whores, so watch your words and don't put in my mouth things that I haven't said, specially things as offensive as those are. Have you ever been to Korea? Do you understand ANYTHING about Korean society? I'm condemning social pressure, I'm condemning how superficial that society can be sometimes, that makes teens think that they NEED to get plastic surgery to be socially and professionally successful. If you know NOTHING about Korean society, you can either try to live in Seoul for some time so you can actually learn first hand how much pressure people have to undergo to be successful in every single aspect of their lives (and the way they look is one of the important aspects) or you can try and document yourself so you might be able to understand why some girls resort to prostitution to afford certain things (sometimes things as basic as education, because universities are quite expensive in Korea and most are private), so once again: NO, I'M NOT PUTTING THE BLAME ON GIRLS. I hope that now that I wrote it in capital letters you will be able to understand it once and for all. When I stated that it was sad but not surprising is because as much as I find it enraging and unacceptable, adult men don't have any scruples to offer money to young women (underage women) to sleep with them, and many of those women, young and pressured and in need of money in a society where life is getting harder and harder for youngsters, well, some of them might accept selling their bodies for money. And I am not even judging those who turn to that kind of mesures to earn money, because I think Korean society makes it hard for youngsters to survive. So unfortunately quite a few girls have turned to prostitution to make money and being intercepted in a street because they think you are a prostitute is not that uncommon. It happens as well with Russian women in Korea, because some of them go to Korea to work as prostitutes, and I was once asked in one street if I was Russian and how much was it. It happened to one of my friends too. Yes, of course men should be punished, and that is what I am saying, but to me the first step to eradicate this kind of situations is by strengthening the law that regulates prostitution in Korea, to protect both underage girls and victims of human trafficking from abusive situations and to protect as well other people who are not involved in that world but suffer harassment from men seeking prostitutes as well. IS IT SUCH A HARD IDEA TO UNDERSTAND FOR YOU?? And so that we make it clear: the only person that has referred to anybody using insults and offensive words were you, don't express yourself for me, I take responsibility for what I say, not for what you think I say. And for you to think that it is offensive that I think that several underage women are selling their bodies in Korea makes me feel even more disgusted. Closing your eyes to not see the problem won't make it disappear, that problem is real, not only in Korean society, but in so many other countries in this world. So I myself find very offensive that you get offended by my mention of this problem, instead of getting offended by the fact that no one has done anything to protect those girls. And regarding your reference about this guy: he might have mental problems, but he is not the first guy to bother teenagers and he won't be the last one, and the other ones won't have any mental illness that can "explain" or "justify" why they are doing that, they do it because they are disgusting, and therefore the only way to protect those girls is to punish them. And to eradicate underage prostitution as well so no woman has to see herself in such a terrible situation, but I guess that will take longer because it is a very complicate matter and "Hell Joseon" is not making it any easier for Korean younger generations to get through today's pressuring society.

im glad the girls called the police instead of staying quiet

Sophia_Sone4ever Saturday, October 29, 2016

He's mentally ill but he also have history of sexually crime ?

intricate Saturday, October 29, 2016

why not send him to a mental hospital? prison obviously won't teach him a lesson, nor help him cope with his mental condition.
