Jung Joon Young’s Chatrooms Revealed To Contain Multiple Videos Of Women Being Raped

Multiple videos of women being raped were shared.

JTBC‘s educational and cultural investigation show Lee Gyu Yeon’s Spotlight took a closer look at the videos that were shared in Jung Joon Young‘s chatrooms, and determined that there could be 10 or more videos that can be classified as rape.

Lawyer Bang Jung Hyun was a guest on the show, and shared his thoughts on the videos in the chatrooms. Bang Jung Hyun is the lawyer who sent the Kakaotalk chatroom chat logs to the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission.

There was still evidence of forced sexual assault left on the cell phone. There is no evidence of it in the revealed chat logs though. However, there are photos and videos of women who are unconscious. There are videos of sexual activity being performed on women who are laying down as if they were sleeping. There were about 10 videos that could be presumed to be forced sexual assault.

He then revealed that he recently was able to contact some of the victims from the videos, who were shocked at what they were told.

Recently we contacted the victims whose videos were on the Golden Phone. The victims were shocked to see the contents of the chatroom. They didn’t remember anything at all. They knew it was them [in the video] but couldn’t remember having sex. Some of the victims even saw pictures of someone taking their clothes off, but couldn’t remember that either.

Bang Jeong Hyun continued, explaining the women had no idea they were even victims of rape.

The special characteristic of this case is that the victims did not even know that they were victims. The didn’t know the fact that they were raped. The suspicions of sexual assault and rape only came up due to the date rape drug. Several of the victims barely drank any alcohol but talked like they had completely lost their minds.

He explained that there was one particularly damning video on the golden phone, showing clear rape.

There were also victims who were very clearly raped. The most serious of all of the videos was discovered on the golden phone. It was like the woman had no reflexes at all.

He revealed that this isn’t just a case of simple rape, but actually aggravated rape. Aggravated rape is different from simple rape as it requires 2 or more people conspiring to the rape, or requires a weapon being used. Special rape carries a more severe punishment than simple rape.

In one of the videos, a member of the chatroom attempted to sexually assault a woman, but failed, so instead he tried again on a woman who was already asleep. It seems like there are 4 total perpetrators, but it could be up to 6, including those who were at the scene of the rape but did not participate. One of them is a celebrity. There are several issues here, but there appears to be the issue of aggravated rape.

Finally, he revealed the chatroom members’ mindset behind their actions towards women.

It’s clear that the chatroom members did not see the women as humans. They saw them as a tool, a tool to satisfy their sexual desires. They had this idea of ‘Well, they aren’t humans anyway, I can just use them to fulfill my desires whenever I need to and then throw them away.’ There was actually the phrase ‘I’m going to throw [her] away’ used.

One person said they would get investigated [regarding this case] and they did. That person is a celebrity.

Bang Jeong Hyun has helped the victims file a complaint with the police against the members of the chatroom that raped them, on charges of special rape.
