    Counter cyberbullying with Sunfull By Rachel Lee In October 2008, a merciless tide of public opinion was a major reason that drove movie star Choi Jin-sil to take her own life. The most well-known victim of cyberbullying in Korea was also a mother of two. Her suicide is not an isolated incident. It is part of the country's growing problem with insidious chat room activity. In May 2010, a group of Internet users attacked rapper Tablo, whose Korean name is Lee Seon-woong. The members accused the 32-year-old of forging his Stanford degrees and argued that he did not graduate from the prestigious university. He presented his credentials, yet the group continued to attack the artist. As one of the most wired nations, almost every household in Korea is equipped with broadband Internet. But this freedom in exchange of information and opinion has made celebrities as well as ordinary people vulnerable to relentless online attacks known here as "akpeul", or vicious online replies. Min Byoung-chul, a renowned English educator and a professor of International Studies at Konkuk University, has been trying to combat it. In 2007, he started Sunfull, a non-profit organization formed to fight bullying and hateful comments posted on the Internet,...More

    Top 10 News of 2009 Two former presidents and a king passed away. One wrong remark during an entertainment show took the entire country by storm. Such unbelievably enormous incidents were played out in unbelievable directions during 2009. Thus, the top ten news of 2009 selected by <10 Asia> may seem like the ten most incredulous news of the year. But one could say that what these ten news stories have in common is that they carry the flow of Korea's pop culture. Can you really believe that all these things happened within a span of one year? News 1. Actress Jang Ja-yeon commits suicide Actress Jang Ja-yeon [KBS] On March 7, one little known actress wrote in her suicide note, "I am a weak, powerless actress. I want to be free from this pain" and killed herself. It was actress Jang Ja-yeon, who was appearing in KBS TV series "Boys over Flowers" at the time. The suicide note, which was 12 pages long on A4-sized paper, explained that she had been physically abused by her agency, forced to drink and provide sexual services. It also listed names of high-ranking executives in the industry, including a head of media company, television drama director and owners of business companies. People started calling the note "The Jang Ja-yeon List". The incident brought to surface how badly aspiring actresses and female celebrities in general have been violated and the ugly power of the media. But due to slow, passive investigation by the Korean authorities, the truth never came to light.
