Ok Sori on BBC and sent to jail for 8 monthsPosted: December 18, 2008
Whoa. This has made international news.
Ok Sori will be given a reduced sentence of 8 months for commiting adultery. The actress blames the situatioin to her loveless marriage to husband Park Chul (40). The BBC quotes stats that in terms of adultery, men outnumber women:
nearly 68% of South Korean men and 12% of women confess to having sex outside marriage.
That sounds about right. But then again, a few years ago, one of the prominent English newspapers in Korea reported that 1 out of 3 married women in their 30’s had “boyfriends.” So who knows what is happening in Korea. If were to judge based on the number of room salons, sexy bars and other nighttime establishments, then there is more opportunity for men to bend the laws.
