Celebrities speak out after Naju rape
The Gwangju District Court yesterday began reviewing whether it would issue an arrest warrant to detain Koh Jong-seok, 25, who is suspected of kidnapping and raping a 7-year-old girl in Naju, South Jeolla.
In a tweet posted on Saturday, actress Soi demanded the rapist be put to death.
“Maybe, I myself get too crooked, but I wonder how God loves such a monster,” she said. “She is 7 years old, 7 .?.?. Why can’t we safeguard those children? I know this will sound scary, but I will say it. Do give him the death penalty.”
Local football star Lee Dong-gook said on Saturday that the anger over the news in the beginning gave way to concerns over the safety of his twin daughters.
“Maybe, I will have to get my children hair cuts short and register them for a Taekwondo club. What a scary world this is,” he said.
