From the Chosun Ilbo:
Bianca Mobley, a 19-year-old American panelist for KBS TV talk show “Global Beauties Chat,” has asked police to punish Internet users who have downloaded two pictures from her homepage without permission, uploaded them to other sites with defamatory comments written on them.
In one picture, Mobley is seen hugging a man and in the other she is posing as if she is caressing the breasts of another woman. Some internet users uploaded these pictures on other sites and wrote messages calling her “promiscuous,” said the police.
* Update: More from the Korea Times. People should be punished for hacking into an email, or into a private blog or website. Not really sure what the standard punishment is in those cases. However, in spite of how malicious Korean netizens can be---I doubt they just called her "promiscuous"---I don't think we should get into punishing internet users for leaving mean comments on websites.
And, in line with the comment I left on this post, I think it's a good idea for foreigners here to be careful with what pictures the post of themselves on the internet. In this case Bianca's photos were scandalous because *gasp* she was hugging a man. In another case a teacher put photos of himself getting friendly with Korean girls at a local bar and had his picture passed around the local media. And an ugly episode of xenophobia began a few years ago by racy photos of white men and Korean women at a local club. We already know many Koreans consider foreigners promiscuous to begin with, and that some netizens are gunning for us anyway. It doesn't take much sleuthing for an unhappy student or a disgruntled netizen to dig up a Facebook or Myspace page, or to find a blog entry detailing somebody's Friday night, and it takes little to get the xenophobic crowd wound up. So keep those profiles private, and save the party pics for emails, not for blogs.
