Press Conference on Digital Sexual Crimes


On April 20, 2020, the Korean Institute of Criminology held a press conference with the Korea Times on digital sexual crimes. Nearly 97 people have been arrested in South Korea for their connection to the ‘nth rooms.’ These chatrooms located on the messaging app Telegram have created a cycle of pornography, where individuals shared videos of girls performing depraved sexual acts in return for payments via cryptocurrency. The girls featured included minors as young as 11. Through this press conference, the Korean Institute of Criminology discussed the issues of the ‘Nth rooms case’ and the problem of the ‘Image-based sexual abuse’.
