Ahn Hee-jung resigned after his secretary Kim Ji-eun spoke up on nationwide tv
An increasing star in South Korean politics and one-time governmental hopeful has actually resigned after his secretary openly implicated him of consistently raping her.
Ahn Hee-jung’s departure as guv of South Chungcheong province on Tuesday came versus the background of a growing #MeToo motion in the male-dominated nation, where sexual misbehavior is hardly ever gone over.
In an psychological interview on South Korean tv, Kim Ji-eun stated she was raped by Ahn on 4 celebrations beginning in June in 2015, consisting of on organisation journeys to Switzerland and Russia. The most current attack was on 25 February, she stated.
“Recently, Ahn satisfied me late in the evening to discuss the #MeToo motion. He appeared distressed and stated by observing the development of the #MeToo motion, he understood that he had actually harmed me,” Kim stated. “He apologised so I believed it would not occur once again, however he did it once again that night.”
“I believed I might never ever leave from all this.”
