Father Kills Suspect in Daughter’s Rape

 

Article from Yonhap News:

Father Kills Suspect in Daughter’s Rape

A man surrendered himself to police after murdering the suspect who allegedly raped his daughter.

The man did not believe in the justice system, and decided to take the law into his own hands.

On March 24 at 10:20 PM, on a street in Miryong-dong, Gunsan-si, Jeollabuk-do,
Mr. Park slashed Mr. Kim, the suspect in his daughter’s rape case.

Mr. Kim was taken to the hospital, but later died.

Two days ago, Mr. Park heard from his daughter that she had been raped by an older man that she knew, and went into a rage.

Mr. Park’s daughter and Mr. Kim were both attending the same school. A few days prior, Mr. Park had discovered strange messages on the social network service (SNS) on his daughter’s cell phone.

The conversations between his daughter and Mr. Kim included sexual content.

When he asked his daughter what her relationship was with Mr. Kim, she told him “Mr. Kim raped me twice.”

Mr. Park was enraged and worried sick, but didn’t even file a report with the police. Instead, he used his daughter’s SNS account to find out where the incident had occurred, and told Mr. Kim to meet him there.

While interrogating Mr. Kim, the two got into an argument, and Mr. Park slashed at Mr. Kim with the knife he had brought.

Mr. Park was flustered and fled the scene, but turned himself in to the police one hour later.

A policeman involved in the case said “We are still confirming that the rape occurred,” and “We plan to look into Mr. Park and his daughter’s SNS.”

On March 25, the Gunsan Police Department arrested Mr. Park on charges of homicide.

Comments from Naver:

kth8****:

I completely understand why he did that.

peac****: [Responding to above]

It looks like this is Jeolla-do’s democratic way. A dead man tells no tales.

sjad****: [Responding to kth8]

If an adult commits a rape, he only gets a few years, but if it’s a high school student, the sentence is of course lighter. The justice system is so lenient that the father took matters into own hands. It’s a pity. We need a tougher law against sexual crimes.

heaj****:

If my daughter was raped, I would have killed the man.

daum****: [Responding to above]

But why didn’t he consider the possibility that his daughter may have had consensual sex, but just lied about it being rape?

godo****:

I can understand why the father did this. This would happen to my daughter over my dead body.

vmfl****:

The law is far, while the fist is near.

yell****:

If it was really rape, good riddance. But if the two had consensual sex, but the girl lied because she was afraid of her father, she will have to pay the price. There needs to be a thorough investigation because kids nowadays are too good at manipulation.

bere****: [Responding to above]

That’s true. I see many people who bash the 19-year-old boy without confirming what really happened to the girl.

jeri****:

I haven’t gotten married yet, but I completely understand his actions. How angry he must have been…

jjh8****:

This is the reality of our laws.

esc1****:

If it was really rape, let’s not bash the father. If I had been in his shoes, I would have killed the boy, too.

rezz****:

I have a daughter. If I was talking with the boy, and his unrepentant attitude made me mad, I would have done the same thing. The father is at fault for not raising his daughter well, but wouldn’t all fathers feel the same way?

ssss****:

I can understand the father if it was rape, but what if it wasn’t rape…

gjh0****:

I understand the father’s actions. Instead of depending on the shitty law, he did well in taking matters into his own hands.

  • Insomnicide

    Sounds like the plot for one of Park Chan Wook’s movies.

  • Thais

    That’s the result of the korean failed justice system towards that kind of crime. How many times have i read about rapists getting light sentences in korea?
    If the people had faith in the system, maybe that father would have reported it to the police before doing something as drastic as killing a man without any proof.

    • Insomnicide

      A combination of misogynist culture and huge obsession with age would have let the rapist off easily. That’s why rapes, especially ones conducted by highschoolers happen so often in Korea.

        ★★That guy was not a raper. The girl and the guy was a couple.
        And they had sex (although they were underage). But her father found about it and she lied that she was raped because she was afraid how her dad would react if she told the truth. There are SNS proofs where the girl and the guy had a friendly conversation even after 2 “raping” acts. What kind of a girl talks friendly to a raper after being raped twice? ★★

        • k.ftw

          that’s why people should never jump to conclusion after getting only one version of the story
          God ..thinking of parents who had to bury their son.

        • Insomnicide

          Although i stand corrected, this guy might not be a rapist. My point still stands, I’ve heard enough horror stories about delinquents in Korea raping their victims.

          • A Pinky Promise

            I don’t agree. Top 10 rape rates countries include: USA. UK, Canada, Germany, Sweden, Belgium. None of these countries are particularly misogynist or have huge obsession with age.

          • Insomnicide

            It’s not about rape rates, it’s about punishment.

            Minors under rape charge in any of those countries still serve heavy sentences, but minors in Korea are treated differently, even in the case of rape.

          • Anonymous_Joe

            Rape rates in those countries are determined by police arrest rates or criminal convictions. In Korea where the police don’t make arrests, courts don’t prosecute or convict, and if they do there’s blood money, the rape rates are artificially low.

          • wic0000

            No.

            According to DOJ and FBI estimates, only 3 in 100 rapists in the US was prosecuted.
            (https://www.rainn.org/get-information/statistics/reporting-rates).

            Rape rates are “artificially low” in every single country around the world by your standard. Your claims of relatively low rate of rape in South Korea compared countries with higher rape statistics (USA for example) is mere conjecture. You just have the illusion of more successful prosecution in the US b/c you’re most likely living in one of handful of middle class areas in the US where law enforcement actually work b/c the county’s rich enough to hire and fund many cops and prosecutors. In South Korea the resources for law enforcement are spread across the aisle, giving it an appearance of lower quality in general.

            And your so-called “bloody money” is compensation given to victims when the victims don’t want go through months of trial and rounds of traumatic cross examination. Victim can choose which ever course they want to take in his/her case. It’s meant to empower the victim. You don’t have that option in the US if you’re a victim of rape.

          • sonotso

            Countries where it is reported you mean.

            Those are most likely to be countries where the victim will not be blamed and will not bring ‘dishonour’ to herself and her family

          • Paulistano

            Don’t be a intolerant nacionalist. You can heard enough horror stories about delinquents raping their victims in every country in the world. Check world criminal rate index on any search engine and look for yourself.

          • Insomnicide

            Again, it’s not about rape rates. It’s about the type of rape.

          • Paulistano

            Last time I checked, Rape is rape.

          • David

            But if you only look at official rape statistics it would appear there are almost no rapes in countries that stigmatize the victim of rape (like Muslim countries that claim there are no homosexuals living there lol). The U.S. Department of Justice does keep statistics compiled in a different (and closer to the truth) manner. Korea is ranked 4th in number of rapes per 100,000 after Lesotho, Trinidad and Tobago and Sweden.
            http://www.statisticbrain.com/rape-statistics/

          • James Morrison

            If a country has a high rate of rape, it’s b/c the culture there is misogynistic and justice system corrupt and allows rapes to happen.

            If a country has low rate of rape, it’s b/c the culture there is misogynistic and justice system corrupt and fails to account for rapes.

            It’s convenient.
            Either way no reliable cross-national crime statistics exist in the world.

          • David

            Well, other than just you saying it could you provide a little proof? Otherwise I don’t see any credibility in your statement. I think I just showed you reliable statistics talking about rape in other countries.

        • chucky3176

          Heads up, check you URL.

          • A Pinky Promise

            Thanks is it working now?

        • Miniluv101

          But doesn’t that make Thais point even more relevant? If people had faith that cases like these would be handled correctly they wouldn’t just take matters into their own hands.

          Should also mention I don’t read Korean, so I have no idea what it says on the site.

      • chucky3176

        And it could also go the other way. Rampant feminism immediately made an innocent man (without any proof other then the accusation) guilty of rape, which cost him his life. Not all women are innocent. Many do lie about being raped, as in this case. But as soon as there is accusation of rape by women, the men are always immediately thought to be guilty in public’s mind. I’m not a supporter of Korean justice system, but the father should have made sure that it was really rape before he went postal. I would have supported him if it was really rape. But he was wrong, now he should pay for that with about 2 years in prison for manslaughter (if he doesn’t get probation instead to reduce his sentence even further). The girl also should pay, but I doubt she’ll get much punishment other than a slap on the wrist.

        Now tell me how horribly that would feel for the dead man’s family.

        • Miniluv101

          “Rampant feminism”

          I don’t think you have any idea what feminism means.

          • chucky3176

            And you don’t think it’s rampant feminism to cheer on the killing, while a guy gets murdered over an accusation of rape in which he didn’t even have a chance to defend against? Where’s the outrage in this? Think what’s going to happen when the Kaokaotalk chat reveals the girl was selling sex online? Probably the story will get buried because the murder victim is not a female.

          • Miniluv101

            None on this site, among the comments or anywhere in the story “cheer on the killing”, quite the opposite in fact. On the other hand you seem quite quick accuse the girl of prostitution (which would mean that the man was buying sex, great defence there) and then shift the blame to women in general.

            Feminism is the belief that people should be treated as equals no matter their sex, it’s not related in any way to a father murdering a boy accused or raping his daughter (I’m pretty sure you can find evidence of that happening in the bronze age).

            Your very argument is the best example that this so called “rampant feminism” is bullshit, and that women are still not given the same respect as men. In a country which has such a trivializing view of rape that a man chooses to take the law into his hands rather than to trust the justice system, you shift the blame to women!? You’re looking at an oasis and then exclaim that the desert is getting flooded, your claims have absolutely zero basis in reality and I refer to you to the citation below.

            “To argue with a man who has renounced the use and
            authority of reason, and whose philosophy consists in holding humanity
            in contempt, is like administering medicine to the dead” – Thomas Paine

            Thus, this argument is over.

          • Maloke

            Oh my god, Miniluv101, I’m so happy about your replies, it’s rare to see someone answering brillantly when it comes to comment about “rampant feminism” :)

          • Anonymous_Joe

            Miniluv101: “In a country which has such a trivializing view of rape that a man chooses to take the law into his hands rather than to trust the justice system, you shift the blame to women!?”

            There lies the problem. Eventually, the truth will come out, and regardless of whether the two had a consensual relationship or he raped her, Korea (its legal system and culture) has such an environment that aggrieved seek vigilante justice for some semblance of justice.

          • bigmamat

            No, it’s not feminism it’s actually more like machismo. A man defending his daughter by using deadly force. It’s vigilantism. This has nothing to do with the justice of feminism.

      • Paulistano

        I can copy excatly what you said with same words and replace the word ”Korea” with China, Japan, Thailand and Vietnam too. Avoid generalization of any country at all cost, Insomnicide.

        • Insomnicide

          Although it is true that Koreans have a weird fascination with age. For example, even if someone is only a year older than you. They’re ‘right’ in everything, no matter what.

          • Paulistano

            I think you are serious exaggerating. I’m sayinh this based on 2 months that I was there some years ago. Age in all east Asia have an important role in social matters due to confuccian roots, but clearly you are inventing things.

            ”They’re ‘right’ in everything, no matter what.” Please, Insomnicide, less, less, I know you can have a good arguments, but not this.

      • dk2020

        where you from dipshit? rape happens everywhere and isn’t just particularly bad in south korea asshole.. condescending idiots these days..

    • jinku

      I applaud the father if in fact the perp was guilty.However its going to be difficult now since he is deceased.

      there is nothing worse than a rapist and pedo.

      • Thor

        There IS worse : the violent father if the dead boy wasn’t a rapist nor a pedo. And even if he was, he should at least be confronted to his own act by an appointed third party, i.e. a judge.

      • Ladan Mohamed

        People react differently after a rape. There is no ‘right’ way to react to a rape and it is really ignorant to dismiss a rape victim just because the way they act after the fact doesn’t fit in to your narrative of how a rape victim should react.

        • A Pinky Promise

          Not sure if you’re trolling but his and her classmates confirmed they were dating so…

            friendly to a raper after being raped twice? ★★

            Also most rapes happen amongst people who know each other, dating doesn’t constitute consent. I didn’t even read the article you put I just disagree with your conclusion and your general way of thinking about rape. The idea that rape victims have to react certain way after rape and now your argument that seems to say that people can’t be raped by their partners. I’m not specifically commenting on this case because unless you have a link where the girl confesses to lying we will never know the truth. I don’t think we should ever jump to conclusions about rape cases, you have to remember that not people are different and they react differently to the same circumstances.

          • A Pinky Promise

            If I’m a girl and my bf fucks me without my consent, I wouldn’t wake up the next day and have a lovely chit chat with him. That’s how normal people would react.

          • [email protected]

            Does the fact that they were dating mean that one can’t rape the other?

            Does martial rape not exist to you then?

          • Yaminah Jamison

            is It’s not really trying to troll but jusy pointing out everyone acts differently towards a rape. Just a statement in general I believe the person is saying because if someone doesn’t act a certain way after they’ve been raped, does it mean it wasn’t “really” a rape?

            There was already a situation on here about someone’s rape experience being fake because they didn’t have some stereotypical aftermath of it all. Just a weak way to discredit someone is all.

      • Thais

        Yes, i am brazilian
        So what you’re saying is that we can’t criticize a country because there’s others out there that have it worst? In this case, ours.

        • Paulistano

          I didn’t said you can’t criticize, I said that it’s a funny fact that a brazilian (not european, north american or even japanese) criticize other countries injustice, since brazilian justice is a totally failed system.

          You wrote ”How many times have I read about rapists getting light sentences in korea?” Actually, a VERY few compared to brazilian justice. And that’s the funny fact: Rapist in brazilian don’t get canned at all, if he get canned it taked years, even decades if the rapist have some money to pay a lawyer. Open a mass media like UOL, Terra, Folha, G1 and see that every fucking day a person is murdered and majority of brazillians give a shit about the victim if you read the comments.

          • mei mei

            well … BURN

          • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

            It would be a burn if he didn’t get on his high horse.

            She said “So what you’re saying is that we can’t criticize a country because there’s others out there that have it WORST? In this case, OURS.”

            And he responds with “I didn’t said you can’t criticize, I said that it’s a funny fact that a brazilian (not european, north american or even japanese) criticize other countries injustice, since brazilian justice is a totally failed system.”

            Basically, he proved her point.

          • mei mei

            but she act like her country is so much better than korea ironic

          • Except…she didn’t.

          • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

            As Matt has said, she didn’t.

            Her first post on this thread started:

            “That’s the result of the korean failed justice system towards that kind of crime.” – She specifically mentioned this crime.”

            Nowhere in her post does she mention or insinuate that Brazil is better than Korea.

            In fact, it was Paulistano who brings in Brazil and said he finds it funny that someone from Brazil, who have it worse, is criticizing something in another country.

            If we follow that logic, then I guess Koreans can never criticize America or Americans, Canada or Canadians, Western Europe and their citizens, etc.

Can you give up now? we ALL know you are not cinese you are not a girl. Fauna (the owner of chinasmack) wrote your IP is not from china, apparently she and mr.weiner saw trought your account because they confirmed you are a male (the bald and fat is something i added by myself, because it fit to the kind of men that disguise themselves as girls on the web), i do remember you never replyed to anyone who wrote in chinese, and even other have more sospect that you are not chinese at all, on the other side your english level is not so high as the one of an ABC.

    • Raymond Ngu

      And as a result of the failed justice system, he’ll probably walk in 3 years for committing MURDER. It is also much more likely that they had consensual sex and she lied to her father.

      • David

        Why is it more likely she lied? Based on what?

    • Dave Park

      I agree with you but on this specific article, I question. Was the guy actually a rapist?

      Maybe it’s because there’s not too many details written on the article but from what I’m gathering. The girl was “raped” twice by this guy who she later ended up sexting. Could it be that the girl merely just lied to her father?

      Regardless, one should never take justice in his/her own hands especially without knowing the full truth. This is not Taken, this is reality.

  • Zappa Frank

    sincerely.. she said he raped her twice.. seems like the joke “I’ve been raped in the park by two blonde girls twice this week and a third time tomorrow..”.. Can it be that was not a rape?

  • FYIADragoon

    First off, why the hell was she having any sort of sexual conversation with someone she didn’t want to have sex with. Unless I’ve misread things, that was stupid on her part. There’s no reason to invite that sort of attention.

    Second, the raped twice thing is kind of confusing, though my first thought is that maybe he forced her into a hotel room at night or something and did it once in the evening, once in the morning. Explanation would be nice, otherwise it causes one to question whether it was rape….

    Either way though, the Korean justice system is shit when it comes to sexual crimes. If it was actual rape, I understand the father’s reasoning, because a slap on the hand is bullshit for someone completely violating your daughter in one of the worst ways possible.

      Conversation doesn’t mean consent. It is NEVER the victim’s fault. The way you think is part of the problem.

        And they had sex (although they were underage). But her father found about it and she lied that she was raped because she was afraid how her dad would react if she told the truth. There are SNS proofs where the girl and the guy had a friendly conversation even after 2 “raping” acts. What kind of a girl talks friendly to a raper after being raped twice?? ★★

      • FYIADragoon

        Nowhere in my comment did I specify that it meant consent. I’d say people like you misrepresenting statements on both sides of the aisle is a bigger part of the problem.

        • Ladan Mohamed

          You don’t ‘invite’ rape. It is a heinous act that is committed with no regards to the victims wants or wishes. Your whole statement represents the rape culture that is so prevalent in society today.

          • The truth is, we DON’T really know whether or not it was rape, and the content of their cell phone conversations might indicate the true nature of their relationship. Spare us the self-righteousness; no one here is defending rape.

          • bigmamat

            When you’re a teenager and your dad is the kind of creep that would actually have the balls to kill someone…you just might lie to him about anything….rape isn’t good but it’s also no excuse for murder…She’s still alive and an 18 year old boy is dead without a trial or even an official investigation…the man belongs in jail, he’s dangerous.

          • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

            The father’s emotional state must have been really off. I think I can understand why he did it. But that doesn’t condone what he has done.

          • bigmamat

            Well he belongs in jail. I’d expect to land in jail after stabbing and killing someone, regardless of the motivation. It’s just one of those things you decide at the time you’re willing to pay the price.

          • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

            Yes. That is the case.

            We can argue whatever the problem with the justice system and what not, but someone lost their life who may well be innocent and had no just to prove it.

          • FYIADragoon

            If you even bothered reading my post while you were assembling your soapbox, you would realize that I don’t condone rape at all. What is in question here is the fact that she might have just called it rape after the fact due to the two things I highlighted earlier. Try to calm down for a second.

  • Raped twice rofl

  • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

    The story sounds odd and we may not have the full picture here.

    If the guy did indeed rape the man’s daughter, I can understand what happened.

    The story sounds sketchy as apparently the daughter and the suspected rapist conversation had ‘sexual content’ – but it doesn’t say what it is. The daughter could have lied to save face or was indeed attacked and raped twice (first could have been an initial attack and second could have been through blackmail or any other ways you can think of).

    Anyway, I do feel for the father in this case (and if the daughter was indeed raped her too).

  • Mighty曹

    Even if those conversations took place BEFORE the ‘two rapes’ would any victim save them AFTER?? It wasn’t as though she was saving them as ‘evidence’ for the police.

    • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

      I don’t know. People are said to act in different ways after being raped. There have been cases were a person raped carried on with thier life as if nothing happened. People deal with shit in different ways.

      • Mighty曹

        I’m sure there are victims who were so traumatized by the ordeal that they start to act a little abnormal and they are also those who just want to forget and carry on. I’m sure the stronger ones manage to at least delete such text messages.

  • commander

    Although further investigation is needed, the puzzle for me is that even if she is raped, how could she continue to keep contact with her raper, and why the father can’t feel weird when he found message exchanges on her mobile phone with her raper.

    With more reflection, he might have thought the sexual relationship was consensual.

    • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

      The story is lacking something. Let the police do their jobs. Hopefully they will get to the bottom of it all.

  • commander

    If a police investigation find the alleged raping to be sexual relationship by mutual consent between the two teens, the daughter may resemble her father in acting impetuously.

    If the sexual relations is consensual, she should have told her father saying that he is my boyfriend.

    Possibly, she may be fearful of how angry her father would be if under-age sexual relationship is discovered.

    But if the alleged raper is found to be her boyfriend and have sex with him, she is to blame in part for the death of the guy and the murder conviction of her father.

  • chucky3176

    This doesn’t look good for the killer dad and the girl. The girl was a runaway teen, went awol for two days, as it was confirmed in this news report.

    http://news.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2014/03/25/2014032503611.html

    The dead 18 year old boy’s older sister vehemently denies rape. She says the girl and the boy were in a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship for two weeks. They had consensual sex, after she suggested sex through chats with the boy. After they had sex, the girl demanded money from the boy. When he refused, she went back home to her daddy and told him she was raped.

    http://www.segye.com/content/html/2014/03/26/20140326001570.html

    Perhaps there was a misunderstanding. The girl could have chatting him up with sexual talk as she was prostituting herself (she was a runaway and needed money badly). Maybe the boy didn’t understand that and thought he was gonna get a treat. The signals got mixed up, and when the girl asks him to pay, he says WTF? The girl gets mad, hops back home to her dad who is now really angry, and tells him she was raped – twice – to extricate herself out of this mess and to revenge against the boy. Maybe in her mind, she really believed she was raped since she had sex as service, but the customer didn’t pay, so in essence she had unconsenting sex.

    • chucky3176

      Few interesting further information. The alleged raped girl is only 14 years old (15 Korean age). The man was drunk before he went over to the place, with his wife, where the boy worked as a delivery boy at a fried chicken place. He took a knife with him which suggests intent to harm, rather than manslaughter. It was the wife who confronted the 18 year old first, by slapping him in the face. The man who was looking at this from his car, got out, approached the boy, and stabbed him in the back. The wounded boy retreated to a room where he was found bleeding 30 minutes later. He was taken to hospital but was pronounced dead. The killer dad fled the scene, but turned himself to police after an hour, not realizing that the boy had died already.

      The “older sister” of the victim, which I mentioned above, isn’t really the blood sister of the boy. She knew the victim as a friend, and she says she saw the mobile chat (Kakaotalk) showing it was the girl who approached the dead boy first for sex, and that she demanded money after they had sex. She says that the Kakaotalk will confirm all this.

        wow, this is fucked up. i feel bad for everyone involved in this shit.

      • Boris_Da_Bengal_Tiger

        So, all we really have is hearsay and the only solid facts is that a girl claimed she was raped twice and her dad killed the accused.

  • RedLaurel

    rezz****:
    “… The father is at fault for not raising his daughter well, but wouldn’t all fathers feel the same way?”

    ——————————————–
    …THE FATHER is at fault for not RAISING his daughter WELL?

    So it’s the father’s fault for not raising his daughter in a way so that she wouldn’t have gotten raped twice.

    Oh, ok. Yeah.

    No. That’s not right at all. More like it’s the RAPIST’S fault for raping that girl, since he CHOSE to target and assault someone in the first place.

    What kind of world do we live in where women have to be TAUGHT to fight off potential rapists? Apparently, girls need to learn how to stay away from or stop a sexual assault, because that kind of thing is HER responsibility.
    Does that sound right?

    That makes as much sense as it being a boy’s fault his mother didn’t raise him the right way if he got raped by teacher. Too bad, his parents didn’t teach him how not to be targeted by a sexual predator.

    Oh, if only he had known the ~way~

    If only he hadn’t dressed like ~that~
    If only he wasn’t so ~handsome~

    If only he wasn’t ~asking for it~

    I am disgusted to find out that we are still victim-blaming in 2014.
    Do people lack the ability to put themselves in the victim’s shoes before they mouth off on rape?
    If it was YOU, would you say it was YOUR fault?

    If it was you, it WASN’T your fault.
    It’s NEVER your fault you got raped.

    • chucky3176

      Read and know the whole story on this before you go off on and on self righteously. Basically that man killed someone who has a high possibility he was totally innocent. He backstabbed him several times without even giving him a chance to defend himself. When you kill someone for raping your daughter, you better damn well make sure that’s what happened.

      • RedLaurel

        Maybe you should’ve read my comment more carefully before mouthing off on it.

        Nowhere in my post did I condone the act of the father.

        I was criticizing one of the Jorean commentators instead. It disturbed me thst people still blame rape victims in today’s society.

        I deliberately called the rapist “rapist” instead of saying it was that teenage boy.
        (Hell, maybe the girl didn’t even get raped in the first place. I wouldn’t know.)

        • Nopes

          Only in rape cases is the accused guilty until proven innocent… That’s not how the justice system works, friend.

          You calling him a rapist is wrongheaded to begin with. He’s an accused rapist – nothing has been proven.
          Is rape bad? Yes. Is Korea too light on punishing convicted rapists? Yes. Does this mean that every person ACCUSED of rape is actually a rapist? No.

          It’s not victim blaming if you just want to have evidence before convicting a person of rape…

  • wnsk

    “The father is at fault for not raising his daughter well, but wouldn’t all fathers feel the same way?”

    Well-raised daughters won’t get raped? What kind of bullshit logic is this?

    • chucky3176

      I think the logic here is the background story which most people here are not getting because they can’t read Korean. The daughter is a delinquint who keeps running away from home for days. She could well be physically abused by her dad. That’s also a possibility as well.

      • wnsk

        Ah, I see. Lost in translation huh? Thanks for clearing that bit up.

  • mei mei

    so the guy mr Kim was underage as well?. maybe they’re dating and the girl lied to her father

  • Smith_90125

    That “father” is as bad as the alleged rapist. Whether Kim was guilty of rape or not, Park should be locked up for life.

  • goldengluvsk2

    wait a second… if he checked their chats and they had sexual content from both sides even after the rape, how cant he thought about the possibility of them being in a relationship or that she lied to save face? I mean, rape can happen in a relationship but its rather fishy she continued talking to him after he raped her. Theres info missing here -or maybe its lost in translation?- and It was a rash decision from his part without a doubt but reading week after week about the laughable sentences rapists/molesters receive could have influenced inhis decision…

  • every time I hear GANGNAM STYLE..I have to relive my terrible experience of getting raped when I was in Korea…rape is wrong…so is GANGNAM STYLE

  • woonawoona

    Rape is wrong. Murder is wrong. The father should be punished for killing someone and if his daughter was raped, then that should be taken into consideration during sentencing.
