More and more celebs are making their opinion about the so-called “Nth Room” scandal about sex trafficking.
Hwang So Yun, a member of the band SE SO NEON, wrote on her Instagram, “The number of people confirmed with COVID-19 are 210,000 all around the world. The number of men who joined the Nth room are 260,000. The night filled with rage.”
Sojin and Hyeri of K-POP group Girls’ Day, each wrote, “What’s the world coming to?” and “I’m beyond furious – I’m terrified,” demanding strong punishment for those who are affiliated with the scandal.
Also, actor Son Soo Hyun wrote, “We have to catch all of those who have joined the Nth room. Reveal the personal information and set up the photo line,” requesting for a photo line (the place where the suspects stand to have their pictures taken before heading into the station or court) to be set up for “Baksa (Doctor),” the operator of the “Nth room.”
Ha Yeon Soo, who has consistently commented on “Nth Room,” also said, “It’s not something I have personally experienced, but it’s definitely not something that should be overlooked.” In addition, actor Moon Ga Young, singer Baek Ye Rin and LE of EXID also made their voice heard about the matter.
Ravi, a member of K-POP group VIXX, also posted a screenshot of the national petitions, titled “Please reveal the information of the suspect of ‘Telegram Nth Room’ and make him stand in the photo line.” He also added, “I don’t want my loved ones to live in such scary world.” Singer Jo Kwon, rapper pH-1, Kwon Jung Yeol and Yoo Seung Woo also demanded strong punishment of “Nth room” suspects.
This so-called “Telegram Nth Room” is the scandal in which a secret room was created in Telegram to share sexual exploitation and abuse of the women, including illegal filming. Only 74 women have been identified so far, and 16 of them are minors. Police arrested 13 accomplices, including Cho. After holding a “Public Review Committee on Personal Information,” the police will decide whether to release Cho’s personal information.
