Hundreds of Motel Guest Were Secretly Filmed, Live-Streamed in South Korea

Police in South Korea uncovered a motel spy camera operation where roughly 1,600 guests were secretly filmed and live-streamed online.????The establishments where the hidden cameras were placed are generally called “love motels”, which USA Today says primarily exist because many young adults live at home with their parents in that culture.????NBC News reports that four men were arrested in the scandal that involved 42 rooms in 30 motels in 10 cities throughout South Korea.????Officials said the cameras were installed inside objects like digital TV boxes, wall sockets and hairdryer holders and were controlled remotely.????Authorities said there was no indication that the motels themselves were involved in the scheme.????The rooms were streamed live on a site that had roughly 100 paid subscribers and over 4,000 members.????Police said the site pulled in around $6,000 since it was set-up about 5 months ago.????Illegal filming is on the rise in South Korea, as CNN reports that officials dealt with over 6,400 cases in 2017 compared to 2,400 five years earlier.????South Korean police said this bust was significant as it was the first time they uncovered a hidden camera crime that live streamed to an overseas site.??
