Ladygate: Pregnant ‘Adultery Girl’ Disgusts Netizens

In what has now become a nearly weekly ritual, another ‘-녀’ (‘-nyoh’, or ‘girl’) has surfaced on Korean cyberspace. While some may wonder why this latest addition to our series deserves the ‘Ladygate’ award, one need not look far to find she was one of the most talked about topics in town on web portal site Nate over the weekend.

Many see this new witch-hunt trend of singling out a ‘nyoh’ and trying to expose their identity online down to the rise of gender inequality and woman empowerment in Korean society, that women can be just as outspoken or outrageous in actions as their male-counterparts. In the latest incident, ‘Brainless Adultery Girl’ is busted online (the following site demonstrates how meticulous these hunts get into naming and shaming the so-called ‘villain’ at hand) for cheating on her former boyfriend and marrying an older man that impregnated her. Furious netizens condemned our protagonist and touched upon unspoken issues such as (the illegal practice of) abortion in Korea and hymen reconstruction surgery.

From Nate:

‘Shock’ as Pregnant ‘Brainless Adultery Girl’ Goes See Ex-boyfriend

Married and pregnant ‘Brainless Adultery Girl’ who went to find her past lover in a rented room has enraged netizens.

Her former boyfriend took screenshots of a KakaoTalk conversation available on an online community of the incident that happened last January. [screenshots available here]

The man said that “I was dating my office-worker girlfriend for 4 years since the age of 20. While I enlisted in the army, my then girlfriend had an affair with a guy in his 30’s and married him”. He added that “I roughly heard about the story (from her), being that the guy who would become her husband had not once had a girlfriend in his 30 years and that even though he was good-natured character, he spent a few hundred thousand won on her.”

The man also confessed that “though my ex-girlfriend was [now] married and pregnant, she still came over to my house for Chuseok [Korean thanksgiving] and we had sex together.” He said that “though her belly was protruding, she still planned on seeing me the following week in a rented room” while boldly stating that “it’s pretty amazing to have sex with a pregnant woman.” One netizen sharply criticized his actions on the relevant online forum by saying that “I too am a man, but this is just not good.”

After a period of stagnation, on the 11th of this month the man once again uploaded the 30 KakaoTalk screen captures of his conversation with ‘Adultery Girl’. The KakaoTalk conversation between the girl and ex-boyfriend included “it’s difficult forgetting the memories of us together”, “were I not pregnant, things would be better between the two of us”, not making it obvious that she was a married woman.

KakaoTalk message from 'Adultery Girl'

Screenshot reads: Girlfriend ‘Had I not become preggers, things between the two of us would have been better.’ Boyfriend ‘I don’t wanna let you go.’ Gf ‘had we met on a day like today, what would we have done?’ Bf ‘Kiss.’ Gf ‘Snuggle in my bosom, kiss, and chat while holding hands.’

Netizens were gobsmacked at this bizarre incident. They wrote comments such as “I feel sorry for those two, I mean 4 souls”, “I feel sorry for the husband”, and “I am fearful of marriage.”

Meanwhile, netizens found the personal mini-homepage of ‘Adultery Girl’, confirming she is a housewife born in 1986, and published accusation comments in her ‘guestbook’. The netizen witch-hunt continued, obviously resulting in ‘Adultery Girl’ first deleting all her posts, and then shutting down her mini homepage altogether.

Comments from Nate:

김명환:

Let me guess what Nate (netizen) girls will write: ‘Yes a wife having an affair is not good, but it shows that the husband who neglected his wife is also at fault’

문동호:

I only feel sorry for the husband. He had not once been in love, and he met that scumbag girl and married her.. he should quickly divorce

김정원:

I’m a woman, but this is just really filthy………….

권유:

She did not marry the man because she loves him in the first place. She kept her fuckbuddy as an insurance, and she married a man who can spend several hundred thousand won when they go on a date. It’s like the woman did not change her mind because her husband did something wrong, but she did not end the relationship with her ex in the first place and got married to the rich man just because of his money, not because she loved her. That’s why she kept both relationships. It seems impossible to consider extenuating circumstances for the man and the woman who cheated. First of all, the man and the woman in question should provide large amount of compensation and child rearing expenses for 20 years. The husband should never forgive them nor settle [were there a case] I think it is enough if you lived your life as a fool for 30 years. Now please enjoy your life doing whatever you want to do.

양진우:

These kimchi girls are the best at hiding their past. Kimchi girls who went to America will come back here soon.

박순근:

# The danger of Korean Girls#
1. World number 1 for abortions
2. Among OECD countries, the only one where girls go abroad to prostitute
3. The only country in the world where you can have hymen reconstruction surgery
4. They never split the bill when they have money to buy a 5000 won coffee for themselves.
5. World number 1 for plastic surgery, number 1 for consumption of cosmetics

김진철:

Hoel… until now I thought ‘Love and War‘ [drama name] was all fiction.

한승만:

President Kim Dae-jung: This girl does not have the capability to conduct adultery. If she does, I will assume full responsibility. [Alluding to Kim Dae-jung’s words that ‘North Korea does not have the capability to produce nuclear weapons. If they do, I accept full responsibility’]

박민준:

There are really many bitches in Korea who get married and then have a child from another guy. If you marry a Korean girl, it’s a necessity to [do and] check the paternity test

이윤준:

Adultery is illegal but it’s impossible to check..ffs

양아름:

I’m also a woman, but regardless of whether one is pretty or not, women who hide their pasts are scary. Although I know some of them…..

고일권:

I feel sorry for the husband.

박순근:

My dad works on the first floor of a pharmacy in a gynecology clinic. I sometimes go to help him, and girls who on the outside look completely innocent and clean come in to collect abortion prescription medicine. Among them, over 80% of them are university students in their early twenties……. Seriously Korea is the number one country in the world where girls pop their cherry and have the most disorderly sex life. I hope that when Korean men get married, they marry someone after doing a medical examination on whether or not they are still virgin.

박정우:

Hey X Mi-x born in 1986, are you looking? Please know that you are embarrassing ke ke ke

김용현:

Her name is Oh Mi-sin, born in 1986

강현석:

If you look at the other screenshots, the ex-boyfriend guesses she is pregnant ke ke ke ke ke really what a disgrace ke ke I feel sorry for the married man. He almost raised someone else’s child keke

박순근:

Go to Gangnam Station [affluent part of Seoul] or Apgujeong [plastic surgery central]. You see all the female college students and female workers in their early twenties, carrying luxury handbags looking like celebrities. Where do you think they got all the money to afford those things? You can barely see pretty girls who are working for convenient stores or restaurants. Most of those pretty girls are prostitutes. Therefore!!! You Korean men…Be careful when you marry!

정란이:

I’m also a woman but there are really so many crazy bitches..

한승만:

When men get married and have a baby, they should really have a paternity test~

박범운:

This is literally a pregnancy attack [play on words with personal attack/humiliation]

    Funny how so many of the korean comments put down korean women……I use to think only American men put down their own women and religated, especially asian women, to some kind of superior status on every level but when you read what korean men say about their own women and I lve even talked to some while I was in korea they will quickly tell u everything bad about korean women and how foreign women are better. I even had many tell me they wanted a westener white girlfriend…….boys are always thinking the grass is greener on the other side but really grass is grass is grass anywhere.

    • A.

      My thoughts exactly. I’m black, and the Af. American community always seems to be taking shots at each other across the gender binary. I used to think it was just us! I think that’s why reading this, as awful as it is, makes me feel somewhat more humbled in the fact that intercultural stereotypes and generalizations are pretty widespread.

      • Steven Wilson

        Lol, I’v talk to Brits and Turks and both of them tell me how horrible their women are and how foreign women are just so much nicer.

        Maybe men just need to date foreign (or different race) girls no matter where they are from.

        • Brett Sanbon

          The grass is always saner… I mean greener

    • Stories of butts

      Plot twist:
      Every society puts down their own women.

      Is that a roar of gasp I hear across the stadium?

  • lonetrey

    -_________- Another ladygate… But I think this one is just another case of someone’s personal lapse in judgment. As long as she takes good care of the child, i’m not sure I care about the adults. Adults will be adults and inevitably make mistakes.

    Now, I’m not defending her, but I feel like this story invokes a single thought from me. “And not a single fuck was given.”

    • Paul M

      Agreed. I really couldn’t care less about what those people got up to in private. I guess there is just something sordid about the human mind that causes us to revel in other people’s relationshp disasters.

  • Jang

    Let’s be sure to sick the Witchhunters after the next male and call it “Gentlemangate.”

  • Steven Wilson

    Raphael,

    “President Kim Dae-jung: This girl does not have the capability to conduct adultery. If she does, I will assume full responsibility. [Alluding to Kim Dae-jung’s words that ‘North Korea does not have the capability to produce nuclear weapons. If they do, I accept full responsibility’]”

    How the hell do you pick up on stuff like that?

  • bultak

    sorry but even monkeys don’t do this!

    Ill be waiting for this to be in some Kdrama soon…

    Just imagine if men were the ones able to get pregnant, or if people could tell whether or not we are virgins. We men love to place blame in ways that its impossible to come back at us.

    • Stories of butts

      Who knew hymen reconstruction and abortion made Korean gals so DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGEROUS

    • Paul M

      Well the best comeback to that would be to say that high abortion rates and hymen reconstruction surgery says more about the men in that society than it does the women.

  • Ami

    If you want to have sex thats fine, you can sleep around as much as you want but cheating while in a committed relationship is repulsive and shows a lot about someones character.* I hope she atleast used protection.

    *For both parties in cheating (in less one was clueless)

  • Hawkeye

    I only feel sorry for the husband. There is never any excuse to cheat. If you cheat, you are scum. The young woman and her former boyfriend are both wrong. It takes two to tango. If you mess with someone in a relationship, you are scum. If you get with someone for money, you are a whore and better change. If you get an std for sleeping around, you deserved it. Widespread sexual immorality is one of the nails in the coffin of a civilization.

  • Regina.

    The boyfriend is an idiot. His slut ass girlfriend cheats on him, get married and is now pregnant, but he still sleeps with her and doesn’t want to let her go? This is just…too bizarre. Any man in his right mind would want nothing more to do with her.

    The only victim here is the husband.

    • Harriet28

      The ONLY victim? What about the unborn child? How disgusting!!!
