Golf course owner’s son’s external hard drive stolen…”Illegal filming and VVIP sex trafficking”

The eldest son of the chairman of a famous golf resort, who is currently in jail for illegal filming, has been handed over to trial on charges including illegal filming.

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office’s Women’s and Children’s Crime Investigation Division 1 (Deputy Chief Prosecutor Kim Eun-mi) announced today (July 7) that it handed over a 40-year-old man, Kwon Mo-soo, to trial on March 31 on charges including violating the Sexual Violence Punishment Act and the Narcotics Control Act.

Kwon, the eldest son of the chairman of a famous golf course resort in South Korea, has already been tried for secretly photographing the bodies of 37 women and was sentenced to one year and 10 months in prison by the Supreme Court in April.

However, prosecutors’ investigations have uncovered additional illegal filming, underage sex trafficking, and drug use by Kwon.

■ Over 100 cases of illegal filming … “like ‘collectibles’ on external hard drives”

In total, police and prosecutors seized 13 of Kwon’s electronic devices during the investigation, including cell phones, hidden cameras, and external hard drives. The data amounted to two terabytes (TB).

When we forensically examined this data, we found that there were more than 70 videos that Kwon had illegally shot and possessed from 2017 to 2021메이저사이트. There were also more than 30 illegal videos from 2013 to 2016 that had passed the statute of limitations and were only brought to trial for possession, not direct shooting.

This means that Mr. Kwon had over 100 illegal videos in his possession from 2013 until now, more than a decade later.

Prosecutors described Kwon as “the eldest son of an entrepreneur who owns a golf course resort and a religious newspaper, posing as an upstanding businessman and family man, but in reality, he had been meeting with women since around 2013 and had a long history of illegal filming, including installing hidden cameras in their residences.”

It was also confirmed that he had stored these illegal videos on an external hard drive, organized by date, as a kind of ‘collection’.

However, it is unclear whether Mr. Kwon distributed the videos.

■ “Sex trafficking of minors to drugging”

In addition to the previously known illegal filming, Mr. Kwon was also charged with prostitution and drug use.

Prosecutors found that Kwon engaged in sex trafficking, including prostitution of minors, on a total of 51 occasions over a period of about two years starting in 2020. In the process, prosecutors also found that Kwon illegally filmed prostitutes on several occasions.

In particular, he is accused of engaging in so-called “VVIP sex trafficking,” in which he received one-on-one introductions to aspiring models and others, starting in 2019. Prosecutors also detained Ms. Jang Mo, the owner of an agency that arranged the VVIP prostitution, on the 30th of last month and handed her over to trial together.

During the course of the investigation, Kwon was also found to have injected ecstasy and ketamine once each in 2021.

“We will continue to crack down on digital sex crimes and prostitution, including illegal filming crimes called ‘murder of a person,’ and do our best to protect victims and recover criminal proceeds,” said the prosecutor.
