South Korean police make 'shock therapy' hidden camera porn video

Text size Aa Aa

Police in South Korea have made a fake voyeuristic video in an effort to tackle sex crimes involving hidden cameras.

The video, titled Fitting Room, was uploaded to file-sharing websites and downloaded by 26,000 unsuspecting viewers between October 17 and 31.

Officers described the video, launched under its Stop Downloadkill initiative, as “shock therapy” for users of voyeuristic porn.

The video opens with a camera looking over the top of a fitting room where a woman is getting changed.

But viewers are in for a shock when the camera zooms in on the woman’s ghost-like face as a message appears on the screen reading: “You might be the one pushing her to suicide” and warning that police are monitoring the site.

Creating or distributing hidden camera and up-skirt videos is a serious crime in South Korea, carrying a fine of up to 10 million won (7,700 euros).

But despite this the issue is growing, with 7,730 cases reported in 2015 alone, compared to 517 in 2006, according to official figures.

Police said they had received positive feedback to the fake video campaign.
