On January 29, 2005, NoCut News published the following article:
Warrant for Canadian English instructor who molested hagwon owner

Recently comments by foreign English teachers denigrating Korean women caused much public criticism in society and now a Canadian English instructor has been caught by police for molesting a Korean female instructor.

Seoul Dongdaemun police have requested an arrest warrant for Canadian hagwon instructor Mr. S (32) on charges of molesting his hagwon manager.

Mr. S is accused of molesting his hagwon manager Ms. Kim (31) in a classroom in the hagwon he worked at in Hyehwa-dong yesterday at 1pm.

During the police investigation Mr. S argued that "I didn't molest her and didn't intend to," however the victim Ms. Kim said, "Mr. S usually also had such excessive physical contact with other female instructors, and I contacted the police."
NoCut News apparently thought this story was so important that it published this article a second time a half hour later, the only difference being the title ("Canadian English instructor who molested female instructor 'headed behind bars'"). A Kyunghyang Sinmun article published a few hours later, however, said that prosecutors had rejected the warrant requested by police. Saying that police had applied for an arrest warrant for the Canadian hagwon instructor, the article states: "However, the prosecution said it was difficult to see that the victim was in a condition unable to resist and rejected the requested warrant." I'm not sure if that means he couldn't be detained, or if it means he couldn't be charged at all.

One wonders if this would have even been news a month earlier.
