ESPECIALLY IN SOUTH KOREA, WHERE MEN’S RIGHTS GROUPS ARE ENRAGED….

[00:00:18.29] You are supporting a misogynistic campaign.

[00:00:20.27] what’s misogynistic ?

Telling people not to hate men is misogynistic?

[00:00:24.04] Where’s the logic?

Where does that logic come from?

CARD12

SOUTH KOREA IS ONE OF THE MOST DEVELOPED NATIONS IN ASIA.

BUT BENEATH THIS FAST-PACED PROGRESSIVE FACADE LIES A FRIGHTENING FACT.

IT HAS ONE OF THE HIGHEST RATES OF FEMALE HOMICIDE IN THE WORLD.

LAST YEAR, ONE BRUTAL MURDER STOOD OUT.

IT WAS A FLASHPOINT THAT PUSHED A DEEP-SEATED ISSUE TO THE SURFACE: KOREA’S GENDER INEQUALITY.

 

 01:42

CARD 12

AA6322, AA6333, AA6338,  AA6340-42

IT HAPPENED NEAR SUBWAY STATION EXIT NUMBER 10 IN SEOUL’S BUSY GANGNAM DISTRICT.

A WOMAN IN HER EARLY TWENTIES WENT TO A PUBLIC TOILET DURING A NIGHT OUT WITH FRIENDS.

CARD 8 RE-ENACTMENT

AA5942-46

AA5936-5941

AA5971-2

BUT A MURDERER WAS WAITING FOR HER.

A STRANGER WHO WANTED TO KILL A WOMAN, ANY WOMAN.

AA5973, AA5976

 

AA5950,51,53,54, 59

AA5961,

AA5965, AA5966

 

WHILE THE MURDERER WAITED SIX MEN VISITED THE UNISEX TOILET … AND LEFT UNSCATHED.

BUT WHEN SHE WALKED IN, HE POUNCED. SHE WAS STABBED MULTIPLE TIMES AND DIED.

HE LATER TOLD POLICE THAT HE KILLED HER BECAUSE WOMEN HAD MISTREATED HIM.

 

 

CARD12

AA6273, AA6286

Ptc: the police didn’t treat the murder as a hate crime which started a huge public debate about what it is that could have led the murderer to target a woman.

WOMEN’S RIGHTS GROUPS BLAMED THE COUNTRY’S ENTRENCHED MISOGYNY.

TENS OF THOUSANDS GATHERED IN SEOUL AND OTHER CITIES AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THEY POSTED NOTES ON THE WALL OF THE GANGNAM STATION

HELD CANDLELIGHT VIGILS

AND ORGANIZED PROTESTS.

THIS SPARKED COUNTER PROTESTS BY MEN’S GROUPS WHO CLAIM MEN ARE BEING UNFAIRLY ATTACKED.

THEY ARGUE THE MURDER HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH MISOGYNY.

ACCORDING TO POLICE, THE KILLER HAD SCHIZOPHRENIA.

GANGNAM STATION BECAME A HOTSPOT FOR GENDER PROTESTS AND SHOUTING MATCHES.

KOREA’S STRICT DEFAMATION LAWS MEANS THAT THE KILLER’S FULL NAME CANNOT BE REPORTED.

BUT THAT DIDN’T STOP HIM FROM TALKING TO THE PRESS.

HE SHOWED LITTLE REMORSE.

[00:00:56.25] Do you regret the crime you committed?
[00:01:01.02] I’m not sure about that question.
[00:01:04.23] So you don't regret it?
[00:01:06.10] I only testified about my opinion of the victim. Other than that, well... 

 

 

 

HE WAS EVENTUALLY SENTENCED TO 30 YEARS IN PRISON.

Sexist pigs! They’ve insulted women over the years, so they deserve to be insulted in return.

Whenever I type ‘All Korean men should die’ I think, “was that too much?” (0:07)  But if I think of the numerous social, cultural, economic, and mental issues women faced under patriarchy, then f**k I’ll say it more. (0:08-0:19)

BANG HYELIN (ORI)

Women’s Rights Activist

5385-5413

 

Do not use 5384 ( the military can sue us for showing the base.)

 

BANG HYELIN, ALSO KNOWN AS ORI IS A CAPTAIN IN THE MARINE CORP.

SHE WAS ONE OF THE FEMINISTS PROTESTING AT GANGNAM STATION.

WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE GANGNAM MURDER CHANGED HER LIFE.

 

06:48

CARD1

00:24:40

ORI:

I saw the post-its and realized I had to take it more seriously. It was an opportunity to change the existing system.

 

06:53

CARD 1

 

5385-5413

 

ORI:

(00:44:21)Women have disadvantages that aren’t obvious. We need to bring these issues to the surface. Tell them it’s not their fault. It’s society’s fault. This is why we need feminism and why the movement needs to become more active. * (00:44:40)

 

07:18

 

 

SHE’S A CONTRIBUTOR TO THE FEMINIST FORUM MEGALIA.

THEIR TAGLINE…..IS DELIBERATELY PROVOCATIVE.

(1:01) She’s in the marines.

 

(0:18) Soldiers aren’t supposed to make political statements

 

(0:57) Wow, Megalia at the centre of the army.

 

(0:04) This calls for disciplinary action.

 

(1:13) I’ll let you guys know when I hear what happens. More people should have reported her.

 

 

8:12

CARD1

00:34:04 -00:34:31 ORI

They wanted to attack me. So they collected all the political comments I made on Facebook and reported me to the Ministry of Defense. They said, “She lacks patriotism, has improper political inclinations, and expresses hatred towards men.”

CARD 16

6621-6624

 

Document Translation:

Rank: Captain     Number: 12-200001   Department: Infantry Army
Name: Bang Hyelin

The salary of person above is reduced for 3 months...

Reasons:

 A.  Violating the duty of submission
 B.  Violating the duty of submission (Etc.)
 C.  Violating the maintenance of elegance

 

AS PUNISHMENT, HER SALARY WAS REDUCED BY A THIRD FOR THREE MONTHS.

 

 

8:37

 

CARD1

00:31:56

I received disciplinary measures. My salary was reduced. 00:32:03:21 The attackers felt a sense of accomplishment and treated it like a trophy. (00:32:03:21-00:32:17:02)

 

8:50

 

FOR ORI, THE REAL LIFE CONSEQUENCES OF HER ONLINE ACTIVITIES WERE HARD TO TAKE.

 

08:56

 

00:27:45

Before Gangnam if someone said they were a feminist, people would consider them a bit quirky.

 

00:28:14 But after Gangnam, it became extreme and there were threats of bullying if you said you were a feminist. There were threats offline. 00:28:25

IN RESPONSE, ORI HAS DECIDED TO QUIT THE MARINE CORP.

THIS IS HER LAST DAY.

FOR NINE YEARS SHE STRIVED TO BE THE BEST.

ONLY ONE OUT OF EVERY 74 MARINES IS FEMALE.

SHE WAS TOP OF HER CLASS IN THE ACADEMY AND WON SEVERAL ACCOLADES.

CARD1

ORI:

00:39:18-00:39:29

The comments didn’t affect me emotionally. I could disregard them.

 

00:39:30-00:39:51

What hurt me was the way the people within my troop reacted. My supervisor no longer trusted me at all. No matter how much I explained they didn’t understand.

    

9:55

Folder of stills in google drive with still of the tweet and screenshot of the porn site-- the porn will obviously have to be blacked out.

 

ORI ISN’T THE ONLY FEMINIST WHO HAS BEEN PUNISHED FOR SPEAKING OUT.

OTHERS HAVE BEEN SACKED.

ONE WOMAN WAS FIRED FROM HER JOB AT A GAMING COMPANY BECAUSE A TWEET SHOWING HER WEARING THIS MEGALIA T-SHIRT TO WORK INFLAMED SOME GAMING FANS.

Did that really happen? That’s very surprising…

 

SOUTH KOREA’S MINISTER FOR GENDER EQUALITY AND FAMILY ADMITS LAWS MAY HAVE BEEN BROKEN IN THAT CASE...

17:07:12-17:07:19

That is something we should reflect upon..

 

THE SOUTH KOREAN GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN TRYING TO IMPROVE THE COUNTRY’S RANKING ON GENDER EQUALITY, CURRENTLY ONE OF THE WORST AMONG DEVELOPED NATIONS.

 

UNTIL 2005, KOREA HAD LEGISLATION THAT FAVOURED MEN.

THESE ‘HOJUJE’ LAWS ENSHRINED MEN AS THE HEAD OF THE FAMILY AND ENFORCED A PATRIARCHAL SYSTEM OF INHERITANCE.

WHEN THEY WERE ABOLISHED, IT WASN’T A POPULAR MOVE.

 17:08:13 there are still preconceived patriarchal perspectives that have not been reformed. The government is trying to control these inappropriate cases. 17:08:38

11:19

 

WHEN FEMINISTS FEEL THE GOVERNMENT ISN’T PROTECTING THEM, MEGALIA STEPS IN.

THEIR CAMPAIGNS HAVE SHUT DOWN A PORN-SHARING WEBSITE WHICH HOSTED SECRETLY FILMED VIDEOS OF WOMEN.

AND HAD THIS MAGAZINE TAKEN OFF THE SHELVES FOR ITS OFFENSIVE COVER.

BUT ORI AND HER FRIENDS SAY THERE IS STILL A LONG WAY TO GO.

CARD 6

 

JEONG MINJOO AND KIM DONGHEE HAVE ALSO BEEN ATTACKED ONLINE.

 

11:51

 

CARD 6

 

Pailin: Have the attacks gotten worse since the Gangnam murder?

 

07:14:47 Ori

It’s gotten much worse. It’s much more extreme now. It used to be that they would call us whores, but it changed to “I’ll find you, rape you and kill you.” 07:15:10

 

 

12:21

 

BETWEEN ORI AND HER FRIENDS, THEY HAVE HAD MORE THAN TEN THOUSAND MISOGYNISTIC COMMENTS DIRECTED AT THEM ONLINE.

THE ATTACKS AREN’T JUST INTIMIDATING.

 

THEY FORCE JEONG TO RELIVE PAINFUL EXPERIENCES.

 

12:38

 

JEONG MINJOO

07:11:38 those comments brought back memories of being sexually abused. I relived those moments thinking, “The person who abused me was thinking these things. These were the things he dreamed of when he touched my body.”07:12:12

 

12:59

 

JEONG (7:11:10) HAS FILED MORE THAN 30 DEFAMATION SUITS AGAINST HER ONLINE ATTACKERS WITHOUT SUCCESS.

FOR KIM THE COMMENTS HAVE BECOME HARD TO IGNORE.

“(they say) You should be stabbed and killed like the girl in Gangnam. Because you’re a gold-digger and you’re a Megalian.”07:04:16

 

07:04:31I was in school at the time, but I couldn’t leave my house for three days. I was too scared. 07:04:41

6346-60

IN RESPONSE, SOME RADICAL FEMINISTS BEGAN TARGETING MEN.

SENDING THE SAME KIND OF ABUSIVE INSULTS AND GRAPHIC IMAGES.

THEY CALL IT MIRRORING.

 

14:06

 

CARD 6

PAILIN: What are you trying to achieve mirroring?

 

07:40:19- ORI

Shock? Shock therapy?07:40:21 

 

07:41:54 ORI

Women’s have always been passive and introverted. This was required of them.

 

07:42:03 - 07:42:28 ORI

And it felt good to do the opposite. Rather than trying to hurt men through mirroring, it was so we could feel liberated.

 

7:32:48

Pailin: Do you think that the attacks for men affect their lives as much as women?

 

07:33:00

Not at all. That’s impossible. 

07:33:04 - 07:33:11

They feel bad for a little while, then it’s over. I don’t think they would feel threatened at all.

Hong:

11:42:51

“I’ll break a lightbulb in your ass and shake it. I’m from Megalia. I’m scary. Be careful when you walk around at night.”

11:43:02

I’ve been threatened this way with extremely insulting language. 11:43:11

 

11:43:33-11:44:00

Since I’ve been insulted a lot, I grew numb to it. But with comments that threaten me with terror, I felt fear. I began to perceive them as people with terrorist tendencies.

 

HE’S FILED DEFAMATION SUITS AGAINST MEGALIA.  BUT THE CHARGES WERE DISMISSED.

-        

17:18

 

11:48:50

Fundamentally Korean society makes men miserable. There’s a lot of societal pressure put on men and sacrifices required of men… like  military service. Men bear more of the workload and work longer hours. The society and the government burdens men. Men’s backbones are not only bending but are about to break.

(please don’t use 6194- shows his exact location, he will get attacked for this.)

(Also might need to zoom in a little to not show the logo of the convenient store in 6196-- again they can sue).

HONG DID NOT WANT TO REVEAL MUCH ABOUT HIS PERSONAL LIFE

 

BUT I LEARN THAT HE LIVES WITH HIS PARENTS AND WORKS NIGHTS AT A CONVENIENCE STORE.

HE DESCRIBES HIMSELF AS PART OF KOREA’S ‘WORKING POOR.’

 

17:59

I don’t think she’s ever had sex. Not just her but many women in positions of authority have probably never dated a man or slept with a man.19:40:47

 

SEVERAL PEOPLE IN THE GROUP DO NOT WANT THEIR IDENTITIES REVEALED.

BUT THEY ARE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE.

 

19:22

 

AMONG THEM ARE TWO UNIVERSITY PROFESSORS, A DOCTOR, SEVERAL YOUNGER MEN AND EVEN A WOMAN WHO CHIMES IN ABOUT WHO IS TO BLAME FOR SEXUAL VIOLENCE.

CARD 14

 

 

19:45:07-19:45:18  woman member

If a guy follows a girl around because he likes her, people call it stalking. Women dress pretty for men to follow them. Where do these ideas that implicate men come from? 19:45:18

CARD 14

AFTER THE MEETING, I ASK WHY THEY’RE HERE.

 

20:01:18-20:01:34

I began participating online and became interested in men’s rights. I wanted to stand up against the illogical aspects of feminism. And I met people who had similar views.

THE GROUP HAS ABOUT 3000 MEMBERS.

BUT IT SEEMS THEIR IDEAS ARE SHARED BY MANY MORE ACROSS KOREA.

ACCORDING TO A GOVERNMENT SURVEY.

MORE THAN HALF OF MEN BELIEVE THAT SEXUAL VIOLENCE HAPPENS BECAUSE WOMEN WEAR REVEALING CLOTHES.

[02:32:30.06] I work and I cook, just like many other Korean women.

[02:32:34.24] And my husband has his own job.

[02:32:37.18] It’s an important job, so he does his best.

[02:32:42.18] He works twice as much as I do.

[02:32:45.09] It may seem like I do more work than he does.

[02:32:48.19] But in reality he does more work.[02:32:51.22]

 

21:05

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I ASK CHOI WHY KOREA NEEDS MEN’S RIGHTS WHEN WOMEN EARN AROUND 30 PERCENT LESS AND ARE THE MAJORITY VICTIMS OF VIOLENT CRIME.

 

[03:42:06.13] Feminists in Korea always mention these statistics.

[03:06:31.02] Women are being seduced by the press to victimize themselves.

 

 

AS FOR ATTACKS AGAINST FEMINISTS?

 

HE SAYS IT IS THE RESULT OF MEN BEING DISEMPOWERED.

 

CARD3- CHOI

 

[02:56:19.09] The rage that men feel boils over from the online world to the offline world.

There may be women who report sexual violence that wasn’t actually sexual violence. But it’s one in ten-thousand cases.

CARD 14

18:58:03

The most common way misogyny is expressed is violence. But in daily life, women are discriminated against during job recruitment. Women are told to be responsible for childbirth while being criticized for pregnancy affecting their work. 18:58:35 It affects all aspects like the recruitment process, promotion, salary, everything. 18:58:45

 

18:51:00-18:51:18

In order to solve violence, we need to educate people on gender equality. Putting focus on how to make our society more equal. Making policies with this in mind.
