In a piece relating to the killing of 10-year-old Han Areum in Tongyeong by a convicted sex offender, Ye Olde Chosun—noting that child porn was found in the offender’s home—complains about Korea’s loose handling of child porn.

In theory, the current law calls for five years in prison for anyone who produces or imports/exports porn featuring underage individuals, and three years for those who distribute or display it. If you’re in possession of it, you can be fined up to 20 million won.

Not one person has ever been punished for possession child porn in Korea, where such material is easily obtainable via P2P services or online hard disks. The UK’s Internet Watch Foundation said according to 2009 numbers, Korea had the world’s fifth largest amount of kiddie porn.
