#MeToo movement in S Korea spreads to academia The #MeToo movement in South Korea has spread from the cultural to academic sector, as students and alumni come forward with stories of sexual assault or harassment under authoritative figures, JTBC reported.

This comes after veteran actors Jo Jae-hyun and Yun Ho-jin, admitted to sexually harassing women during their decades-long careers.

Both actors cancelled their upcoming production plans after the scandal.

On Sunday, 57-year-old actor and professor of theater Han Myung-gu was spotlighted in online communities, as having groped his students during drinking sessions.

Online communities for Seoul-based universities including Seoul Institute of the Arts and Sejong University saw board posts recounting sexual harassment cases.
