An unholy home of incest

There are a lot of abandoned children out there and it is good to see that some of them find good and loving foster homes – but this one wasn’t.  According to the Korea Times (November 7, 2012):

A 16-year-old has been raised at the home of a 60-year-old Hwang since her parents divorced at three. Her mother was friends with Hwang’s wife and fostered her. The girl grew up calling Hwang’s wife “mother.”

Hwang took in an additional five to six children under his care and his home was actually designated as a child care center in 2007. He placed the girl on his official register and received 150,000 won ($130) a month. She called him “father” and his 32-year-old son “brother.”

In 2006, Hwang assaulted the girl, then aged just 10, sexually when his wife was out of the house. This continued through the following years.

Hard to believe but it gets worse:

Then in 2009, the son accused her of watching pornography and assaulted her sexually as well. In 2010 and 2011, the son took advantage of the girl in a truck that he drove on three occasions.

Fortunately the father (who had been charged without detention) and the son (has been arrested and charged for rape) will apparently be punished but what is especially shocking about this case is:

Prosecutors said there was strangely no evidence of pedophilia in the case.

Kind of makes you wonder about this.

    “Prosecutors said there was strangely no evidence of pedophilia in the case.”

    That means that the prosecutors are looking to really nail the (alleged) bastards. Pedophilia is classified as a mental disorder and provides those (alleged) bastards with an out from criminal intent.

    man i hope these fuckers get castrated. what a waste…

    Did the father and son know the other was doing it also? That would be sick and awkward to talk to your father or son after something like this came to light.

    Easy does it Salaryman, Bobcat’s invented a new rule disallowing talk of other regulars to the hole before they show up.

    Per #1, correct – 25 years.

  • Arghaeri

    Elgin, the article says only that he is indicted for trial, are you mixing up the Pyeontaek man just jailed for 25 for raping his niece and impregnating her. A good sign perhaps, although more than murder?

  • red sparrow

    The girl’s biological parents should be strung up in the market square for treating their child like something you throw away in the event of a divorce.

  • R. Elgin

    You are correct “Arghaeri”, however, I would bet that the prosecutors are going to do the same to this sorry excuse for a human too. It is sad that I would get this wrong because there is yet another case in the news.

    Internet porno is not the cause of this either so the KCSC can cease with their lame efforts at censorship, which help no one.

    It doesn’t really if you have a functioning knowledge of vocabulary, and fear based media.
