Snapping in the boy's room

Thinking of this post, a reader sent me the photo below and mentioned this quote from the Marmot's Hole:
In the United States, there's a Federal statute against toilet and changing-room cameras, designed to protect people's privacy in circumstances where they would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. 
While not really the same thing, the photo he took in a public bathroom in a park in Seoul is rather interesting:

 It would appear the intended subject is out the window, but he felt it was odd that no one in the bathroom said a word about it.

Either there is a pool through that window.. or.. well that's the only reason I could see someone doing that here...
Unless the bathroom was sitting on the edge of a cliff looking out over somewhere and that was the best place to stand.

He's setting the precedent in S. Korea. Does that guy also film students in school bathrooms?
“Schools caught running CCTV in violation of rules” http://www.koreaherald.com/view.php?ud=20130825000237 “The Gyeonggi ”Provincial Office of Education carried out an investigation into 177 schools from April to June and discovered that 25 schools operated CCTVs in a way that undermines the students’ privacy or basic human rights.“
