Welcome to another edition of SB Week in Review. Here’s all the news you might have missed this week:
- Han Seo-hee‘s stance on feminism took a radical turn as she associated herself with WOMAD, a Korean radical feminist group that supports misandry. WOMAD was derived from Megalia, and thus Han’s decision to support WOMAD doesn’t come as surprising, since she learnt about Feminism from Megalia. After WOMAD came under fire for posting indecent photos of men online, and the police issued an arrest warrant for one of the administrators of the site, Han Seo-hee posted on her personal Instagram: “I am WOMAD. If you’re going to come for WOMAD, take me instead. For WOMAD, I’ll honourably go to jail one more time.”
- The Korea Broadcasting Actors Union (KBAU) has joined the boycott against Fantagio Entertainment following the Korea Entertainment Management Association (KEMA).
