Quincy Black to face justice

Seoul Central District Court has indicted—and detained—a 29-year-old American on charges of producing a video of him having sex with an underage girl.

And yes, it’s Quincy Black.

He’s accused of taking a teenage girl he met on Korean Cupid back to his room, plying her with booze and filming them having sex with four pre-positioned cameras.

According to BreakNews, Mr. “Black” spent 20 hours a week teaching English to elementary kids and the rest of his time looking for girls. He edited and uploaded on to an overseas porn site the video he took of having sex with some of the girls. The videos then made their way back to Korea, and you know the rest.

I do find it interesting that the media took interest in this case but nobody’s mentioned this case yet.

    Phew. Now there’s one down.

    I wonder if the local constabulary will press on by investigating these guys. I mean it’s about all about protecting the kids, isn’t it?

    Incoming esl defense force for this scumbag in 3..2..1..

  • Dave

    The Choson has his Korean Cupid advert on their page.

    http://news.chosun.com/site/data/html_dir/2014/02/12/2014021201421.html?news_Head3

    Clearly asking for 18-30 year old women.

    Filming someone without their knowledge and distributing it on the internet is despicable behavior.

    What are the actual charges brought against him?

  • http://www.eslwriting.org/ eslwriter

    Look out. Here comes the drunk monkey at the keyboard force prattling on with sentences that randomly make sense or connect with reality.

  • 8675309

    You don’t get it do you? He’s a child molester and purveyor of kiddie
    porn and is being arraigned thusly. And don’t worry about him — he’ll do just fine without your attempts to defend him as he’s more than likely just going to sail through the Korean justice system before eventually getting his own private suite at the Cheonan Hilton for Foreigners.

    The bigger problem for him that perhaps both of you should be worrying about is when he’s eventually remanded or extradited back to U.S. custody at the end of his Korean vacation to face federal charges of child molestation, to include the production, usage and/or possession of child pornography as a U.S. citizen while abroad.

  • Dave

    I don’t equate having sex with someone under age as child molestation. A high school student is certainly not a kiddie.

    Child molestation is what the Korean teachers do, but they are still allowed to teach. Strange that isn’t it. http://koreajoongangdaily.joins.com/news/article/article.aspx?aid=2983826&cloc=joongangdaily

    As for me being worried, what are you talking about? This is only the second post I’ve made here. If you are trying to insinuate that by questioning what the charges brought against him are, and pointing out his Korean Cupid profile states he was looking for women aged 18-39, that I am somehow linked with child porn you are obviously sick and deluded. Maybe you should look in the mirror.

  • bumfromkorea

    Seriously, the apologist rhetoric are eerily reminiscent of the R Kelly defenders.

    Don’t you worry your pretty little head about what the Koreans do or don’t do in their own country — you and Quincy Black are NOT one of them, NOR will either one of you ever be one of them, so STOP comparing yourself to them. That said, if expats want a margin of respect in this country, they’ll need to start policing their own — because if they don’t, the Koreans will gladly and gleefully do it for you as long as you’re here, in their country.

  • DC Musicfreak

    This guy is known for febrile screeds and not discerning reading of others’ posts or precise writing, but I think his correct point might be that the law is the law on the age cutoff for sex with a minor and/or filming the act. And there will be no jury to weigh the extenuating circumstances of his (possibly) being duped by a minor who presented herself as of age. Foreign and black are definitely two additional minor strikes against him, and porn itself is illegal in the ROK. QB is fucked no matter how it’s sliced here.

  • eSavant12

    Really, it’s just about protecting Korean kids and even then they can’t do that job adequately.

  • eSavant12

    Koreans have a THIN margin of respect for each other; NOT much hope for the expat population in that regard.

  • Dave

    I worry about what Koreans do as I have children here, who in the near future will be attending school; perhaps one of the schools where the Korean paedophile teachers are teaching. Don’t be such a condescending ignorant fool.

    As for telling me not to worry about what Koreans do in their own country, I think it is much more important that others worry about what Koreans are doing in their countries.

    http://www.examiner.com/article/koreans-men-are-top-sex-tourists-southeast-asia

    I know Koreans love being number one, but maybe being the number one country for the number of sex tourists in the world isn’t the best thing.

  • Aja Aja

    Folks, making porn and distributing them for the mass viewing is an illegal act in Korea. Authorities crack down hard on pornography, unlike in the west. I hope nobody is trying to defend this guy using a race card.

  • http://atlantarofters.blogspot.com The Sanity Inspector

    Last paragraph needs an edit, Robert.

  • 8675309

    Dave, why in the world would you consider sending your kids to a Korean school? One word of advice: don’t. Even in the reputable ones, teacher-on-student Whack-A-Mole is par for the course, if you didn’t know already. And with your paranoid delusions about molesters running all over the place, it just won’t get any better, for you anyway.

    In all seriousness though, there are plenty of solid International Schools in this country that are foreigner friendly. Sending a foreign kid through the Korean educational system really would be a waste of yours, your children’s and the school’s time — especially if they had to make costly special accommodations for them.

    And about these vague rumors and faux news websites that you’re really getting your panties all in a bunch about, another piece of advice: just fugget about it, concentrate on yourself and your family, and you’ll get on just fine in this country.

  • IAMIN YURI

    Dave, I don’t know the charges. I assume they’ll focus on the distribution of the video without the young woman’s consent. If he’s fortunate to have US $20K on hand he can probably pay it and be done.

  • IAMIN YURI

    an expat police force? how would that work?

    Why? Is it underage porn?

  • redwhitedude

    Depends of what type of porn it is.

  • Aja Aja

    I’m not talking about soft porn.

  • 8675309

    Not a literal police force — I meant it figuratively, as in policing your own vis-a-vis SROs (Self-Regulating Organizations) and professional organizations, like FINRA, SAE, etc.

  • 8675309

    LOL! This isn’t a Baek Ji-Young redux, and he isn’t being indicted on some white-collar rap like embezzlement or wire fraud. This guy is definitely going to jail for being a child molester and a producer and purveyor of child pornography.

    That said, he’s going to get a cush gig making sneakers and toothbrushes for the ROK Army, while enjoying a veritable plethora of state-of-the-art amenities like high-speed Wi-Fi connections (fastest in the world), the best round-the-clock GPS-monitoring accessories tax-payer money can buy, and his own digs at a Ritz Carlton-esque, foreigner friendly Club-Med.

    And with that background in TEFL, he’ll no doubt have no problem cranking out his memoirs in no time…I heard Oprah is in negotiations as we speak to buy the rights to option, and they’re talking to Denzel for the movie….

  • http://f5waeg.blogspot.com/ F5Waeg

    so are you implying that no matter how long I work here or contribute to society and support my family, I’ll never have any right to talk about how things are done in this country? Where do you live again exactly?

    The rest of the world worried its head about Korea in 1950. That worked out for you.

  • Bob Bobbs

    I’ll get right on that: http://www.vancitybuzz.com/2014/02/super-bowl-sex-ring-suspect-arrested-yvr-airport/

    A South Korean woman has been arrested at Vancouver International Airport for allegations that she was involved in a sex ring that sold drugs and prostitutes in the New York City area before the Super Bowl.

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    Sure did. Without the worry of the world this pip squeek country would either be economically on par with today’s Democratic Republic of Congo, or more likely, part of an even worse basketcase called the DPRK.

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    Would you be the leader of this jackbooted gang?

  • 8675309

    You certainly have the right to say whatever you want, whenever and wherever you want. It doesn’t mean, however, that we have to listen. (Most Koreans have figured that part out as early as elementary school, which is why most Koreans go to Noraebangs, Jimjilbangs, PC Bangs, etc., to blow off steam. Anything else is superfluous or in excess of requirements.)

  • Bob Bobbs

    Paranoid? One need not dig long to find documented cases of Korean teachers who molest students. Or of those who punch them in the face:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxejRhS4B4E

    Your posts are such propaganda, they are verging on satire. What a bully. Looks like you learned to be one at school.

  • Bob Bobbs

    Uncalled for.

  • Bob Bobbs

    While that might have sadly been true in the past, I doubt they extradited him for a fine.

  • Bob Bobbs

    Definitely? Prosecutor now, are we?

  • Bob Bobbs

    I don’t equate having sex with someone under age as child molestation. A high school student is certainly not a kiddie.

    -No, it is the same. They are.

  • SalarymaninSeoul

    “We,” so you’re Korean. I would reply that you shouldn’t worry your own pretty little head about expats. The acts of a few don’t tar all expats just as much as Korea’s extremely well developed prostitution industry does not mean your mother is a whore. Necessarily.

  • Bob Bobbs

    Where? What apologist rhetoric?

  • http://f5waeg.blogspot.com/ F5Waeg

    Thanks for clearing that up. . .I had no idea Koreans were capable of making up their own minds! I’ll be sure to let all my Korean friends know this, since really it is news to me!

    Listen son, you should take your own advice about going to noraebangs and the like to blow off steam, since coming here aspiring to be one who can school long term expats about life on the streets is simply making you and by entension Korea look like a bunch of hayseeds hyuking it up at amateur hour.

  • bumfromkorea

    Oh, I’m sorry. You must be the *new* Bob Bobbs who just found this website. This isn’t the first time this blog’s comment section has discussed this issue, you see.

  • Bob Bobbs

    This thread?: http://www.rjkoehler.com/2014/01/23/english-teacher-who-made-porn-video-extradited-to-korea-might-it-be-quincy-black/

    It is one part hang-him-high, one part I-don’t-understand-how-criminal-law-works, and one part Foreigners-are-perverted-scum. It’s not full of apologist rhetoric, and neither is this thread. Are you insinuating that most foreigners in Korea approve of QB’s actions?

  • Bob Bobbs

    This is hilarious.

  • bumfromkorea

    Actually, multiple comments here and there either do “Oh yeah? Well… Koreans are worse! See?!” route or “So what? The age of consent is 13!” As cried out by Tom from The Boondocks in that episode: “But she’s a LITTLE GIRL!”

    It’s not full of apologist rhetoric,

    Never said it was. And here we go again…

    Are you insinuating that most foreigners in Korea approve of QB’s actions?

    Yep, here we go.

  • Bob Bobbs

    Koreans are worse is a predictable response, but not apologizing for him. The age of consent being 13? 16? 18? 20? Korean courts are the cause of this confusion, not expats.

  • bumfromkorea

    Korean courts are certainly the cause of this confusion, but they don’t make those comments appear as first response to cases like this.

    “Koreans are worse”, as an immediate response to cases like this, is a form of tu quoque, a “너나 잘해” mentality. And at best, it’s the commenter using cases like this to have another “These Fucking Koreans” venting, which, given the parties involved in the actual case, makes it morally reprehensible.

    At best.

  • Bob Bobbs

    The incident is disturbing, but so is the mishandling of child abuse in Korean courts. Everything has a context.

  • bumfromkorea

    I’ve mentioned this with comfort women – modern Korean prostitution issue as well before, but the primary motivation here isn’t constructive criticism. It’s not “Cases like these are why Korean judicial system need to change”, it’s the other way around.

    Similar examples can be found on this very comment section with eslwriter and Dave. And considering that Dave is apparently a long-term expat with family in Korea, it’s even more disturbing.

  • Bob Bobbs

    Some people have to be walked through things. Dave’s comment is either disturbing or very naive; I hope it’s the latter.

  • wangkon936

    If you are an expat who can’t speak [a meaningful amount of] Korean, doesn’t have a lot of Korean friends, family or networks to protect you, legally place it safe. Be extra careful.

    That’s not advice, that’s common sense. Korea is not your playground. Korea is not Thailand or Mexico and you are not in the country as a “here today gone tomorrow” tourist.

  • wangkon936

    I tend to look at it psychologically. Many of these expats, because they don’t have language skills, networks, connections or sometimes, social skills, have no recourse. They also have no vested interest in the country either. People who have no recourse and no vested interest don’t offer constructive criticism. They just bitch and moan, often times anonymously, almost always virulently.

    People like this are exceedingly frustrating to expats who have elected to stay in Korea on a more longer term, and/or permanent basis and/or have a greater vested interest in Korea in the form of a wife, child, family, real career, etc.

  • wangkon936

    My dad would totally approve this. If I ever disrespected my teachers he would 110% approve of corporal punishment by the teacher. I’ve got a story related to this.

    Once my Korean American friend, who was a 10 year old elementary student in Glendale, CA at the time, was creating such a ruckus in class that he was called to the principal’s office. He literally gave the principal the bird and cussed at him and didn’t respond to any attempts at American style school discipline.

    So, the principal called his dad. Dad came. Principal explained the situation. Less than a second after the principal finished his story his dad tae kwon do round house kicked the son in the face, he went flying to the other side of the office. The dad went into his son’s face and said never ever create problems in class or disrespect your teachers ever again. The principal was speechless, but he didn’t disapprove and gave a slight smile later on. My friend became a model student after that day.

    Different generation, different time. Now I hear Korea is changing and there is much less corporal punishment in school. I know my father’s generation would totally disapprove.

    Yes, “levity.” Friday morning brain fart.

  • “Furious” George Rockwell

    I doubt it. The man is Black. ESL teachers (mainly white guys) want all of the Korean girls to themselves and don’t want Black guys having any fun. When a foreigner (read White) does something, all foreigners (including Blacks) are bad; when a Black does something, White foreigners say “see, told you niggers were bad”, and the Asians and non-Black foreigners squad up on Blacks. That’s how all of Asia, not just Korea, works.

    no, it’s adult porn
