Reflect the society[change | change source]

In 2005, the “Gwangju Inhwa School affair” became known to the general public for the first time, but there was no obvious punishment. However, as the movie The Crucible was a box office hit, many people took an interest in this affair and it brought forth much change to society. Woo-seok corporate body, one of the social welfare foundations, which operated Inhwa School received a cancellation notice from the government. Also, the man who was concerned with this affair suffered a punishment. He denied all charges pressed against him. However, a lie detector gave the lie to his speech. Moreover, the National Assembly prepared a revision about punishment of sexual violence crime. Therefore, in the case of sexual violence against children under thirteen or disabled women, the statute of limitations was abolished.
