What is “Hell Joseon?” Why are women in South Korea being secretly filmed in public spaces? What does #MeToo look like outside of the U.S. in one of the most industrialized nations in the world? Why is a KPOP star accused of facilitating sex-work in popular Seoul nightclub? And how does this all connect together? This deep-dive Joan and Matt investigate the recent cases of spy-cam infiltration in multiple South Korean cities, which leads to the discovery of years-long social protest inspired by the #MeToo movement and the boiling effect of “Hell Joseon” among Korean youth. Our story ends with the recent scandal effecting the KPOP community with popular singer Seungri from BIGBANG charged in multiple prostitution cases facilitated in his co-owned nightclub, where leaked text messages showed the singer and other popular artist involved in a secret trade of illicit images and videos, of un-consenting adults having sex in the same nightclub.
