Korean footballer Hwang sex scandal: leakage of private videos and accusations
“On June 25th 2023, a social media post containing false rumors was uploaded by a person who claims to have been my girlfriend. In terms of my private life, I have never engaged in any illegal acts.” Hwang, South Korean professional footballer, said in a handwritten note.
On the 25th, the woman in question had created a social media post containing explicit pictures and videos featuring Hwang and other women. The woman accused Hwang of psychological abuses and claimed that Hwang had slept with several women, only to dump them later.
In response, Hwang denied all alleged illegal acts and abuses claimed by the woman. In addition, Hwang, along with officials from South Korean national football team, pledged full cooperation with legal authorities in order to seek legal punishments towards the individuals involved in this scandal.
In the meantime, there have been rising concerns of secondary victimization of Hwang through the circulation of his private videos on various social media such as Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
