Four university students sexually assault drunken English hagwon native speaking teacherThe "get her drunk and sexually assault her as a group" M.O. is not uncommon, as this 2007 article pointed out:
On the 19th Manan(gu) Police in Anyang, Gyeonggi-do arrested three university students, including 18 year-old A, and booked without detention 18 year-old B for the group sexual assault of a foreign woman.
According to police, at 12:05am on the 12th, after drinking together at a bar in Anyang-1-dong in Manan-gu, the students took drunken 24 year-old American C, an English hagwon native speaking teacher, to a motel where they repeatedly sexually assaulted her and stole money and valuables such as her phone worth 800,000 won.
They approached C and drank with her after the group she was drinking with left her alone. When C became so drunk she couldn't keep her balance, they took her to a nearby motel. It's become known that after they arrived at the motel, they decided what order they would go in and sexually assaulted her.
During the the police investigation they confessed that, "At first we just wanted to sit and drink together, but when C became really drunk the idea of sexually assaulting her came to us." Police revealed, "None of the four have records of committing sex crimes."
When C discovered what had happened the next day, she told someone working at her hagwon the story and they contacted the police together. C is working as an English instructor at a hagwon in the Pyeongchon area of Anyang and has been in Korea for 6 months.
Another aspect of teenage sex crimes in Korea is that they frequently happen in groups. Some 50 percent of teenage rape cases occurred in groups, compared to 30 percent for adults. Experts say that this tendency is higher in Korea than in other countries.I wouldn't be surprised if it's university students who help make the adult rate so high.
