Ok So-ri convicted of adultery, escapes prison sentence

The judge in the Ok So-ri vs. Park Chul adultery case handed the actress a guilty verdict for “committing adultery with an aquaintance of her spouse” on Dec 17.

Tired: 'Please, leave me alone now.'

Ok So-ri, who admitted to a hot and heavy affair with a 38-year-old singer, was slapped with an 8-month suspended jail term. What does that mean? It means Ok So-ri may be convicted, but she ain't doing time behind bars.

This particular prison sentence for adulterers is fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on the way you see things) suspended for two years.

The man whom Ok had an affair with was also slapped with an 8-month suspended prison sentence and two years probation.

Trooper: Ok So-ri braves the press after a tough battle in court

During the ruling, presiding judge Cho Min-seok of Uijeongbu District Court added that the collapse of the union is also partly Park Chul's fault. He said: “ The accuser (Park) also deserves some of the blame for neglecting his family life, coming home late almost every day and spending much of his earnings on drinking and other entertainment. It should also be taken into account that the accused, a celebrity whose private life has been laid bare to the public, has suffered enough pain."

When leaving the courtroom, Ok said: “I am sorry for having caused so much controversy to society.”

Don't know where's the problem.. If she wanna another men, if her ( Fuckiiing !! )husband isn't good, or if she's not happy with him so she can go. Plus, it's not our problems and i don't think we need more and more problems. WTTTF ??? !!! It's not your own affair ( for Korean ), she can do everything she wants, she's an adult !!!


( Sorry for my bad english =/ )

Guys, this is a different culture. They have different values than we do. ((BTW this may be the reason those of us, who are not yet fluent in Korean, are so enveloped by their entertainment.))

I'd sure love her phone number, tho!

HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! wait.. wait.... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! sorry... I think I'm just jaded.

You have ANY idea how many people cheat in Korea? Especially the younger generations that are far more westernized and FAR less conservative! It's sad but it's pretty common, and probably far less discreet. There are a lot of areas and districts that you can go to catch, watch the secret dates. Part of our culture almost contributes to young flirty girls in the party scene, which doesn't exactly help matters... I'm not condoning it or anything, and I don't agree with it by any means (the cheating I mean) but it's not uncommon.

These rules are just stupid and archaic. They stem from a very male chauvinistic dominated society. I can't believe they actually still enforced this though.....

Clammy, you moron. We're talking about married couples here, not dating.

It's illegal to cheat when you're married in Korea. No one gives a shit if you cheat when not married.

Clammy said...

I was talking about married couples, considering the topic. Nowhere in there did I say dating only. That was your asinine assumption.

clammy...actually, as far as i know, this law was intended to help women back the day when they didn't have any rights against the men. but korean society has obviously evolved a lot since then that this law is pretty rediculous now.

Clammy said...

Yeah, the law was to help women so they wouldn't be left in the cold, however, it's RARELY actually enforced. Considering that about 2/3 of men in Korea ADMIT to committing adultery as opposed to less than a 1/5 of women, the balance of who the law effects more is heavily against women when they cheat. If the law were actually enforced regularly, there would be a LOT of men in jail.

Poor her.

This is stupid and ridiculous, enforced against women? If this goes to the news, is because she's a celebrity.

Periodsux said...

Poor lady, but this law is interesting... I think it's a bit like the Syariah Court here in Malaysia, lol. I think you get some sort of punishment for cheating but then again, I wouldn't know, I'm not affiliated with it. Hope they find sort of solution for it in South Korea...

First thing to comment; she looks dead. O_O I mean seriously, look at her eyes. She's pretty much beat in the whole process.

And what happen to her futur ex-husband ??? !!!! NOOTHING !! So she'll go to prison but not him ... It's not right !

Clammy said...

I don't think her husband cheated on her.

bleh said...

well, @ 1st anonymous,

"if she wanna another men, if her ( Fuckiiing !! )husband isn't good, or if she's not happy with him so she can go. "

of course. go and have divorce! then she can freely have s*x with any man, s much s she wants! she is too stupid when she knows there's a law and still did it.

and, being an adult doesnt mean u can do anything u want.

bleh said...

plus, there are some states in america that still have law against adultery. so i'm not surprised if korea @ asian have this law. the eastern always claimed they are 'cleaner' than western.
