  • “If a crime is committed (in Gangseo-gu), the victim may be a resident of Gangseo-gu, so I wrote an article (disclosing the identity) to fulfill a public purpose….”

On February 2, a YouTuber first revealed the face, occupation, and age of the man who committed the crime.

The video garnered over 6.7 million views and over 4,000 comments.

Under current law, the release of identifying information is limited to suspects in the investigation phase or those who have been convicted of a sex offense.

This means that we can’t immediately release the identity of an accused man who has been tried and is a defendant.

As a result, the identity of the perpetrator is being released by private parties outside the system.
