Going off a story regarding an Australian woman who was raped while on holiday in Korea, Steve and Teresa discuss rape and sexual assault in Korea. They go over how Korea defines rape, how it’s sometimes handled by the authorities (hint: not very well!), and what you should do if you find yourself in that situation. In Hallyu Doin’, Teresa discusses the hottest Korean drama right now, Descendants of the Sun. If you’d like the list of agencies and organizations that can help in the event of a rape or sexual assault, you can get it in our show notes.
New music in this show was provided by Seaweed Mustache with their song Reverberation. (The song was wrongly named during the podcast.)
Steve and Teresa sit down and discuss the state of women and gender roles in Korea. We cover how Korea came to be such a strong patriarchal society and also how things are finally changing for the better. Teresa brings us another installment of Hallyu Doin! with some shocking news about the Korean singer IU, and we have awesome new music from Korean band Tanemotion.
