Although minor offenders are not typically exposed in Korea, the severity of his crimes led the police to decide that the public had the right to know his identity.
Kang Hoon was a main accomplice of Cho Joo Bin who actively participated in the production and spread of the sex assault photos and videos.
The underage accomplice went by the name of “Butta” in the Nth Rooms, and he has been revealed to handle the profits obtained in the chatrooms.
As soon as his identity was revealed, online communities discovered photos of the culprit’s face which are subsequently going viral online.
Kang Hoon is expected to be exposed to the media in full on April 17, when he is sent to prosecution at the Jongno Police Station.
