AsiaMedia :: KOREA: "This is disgraceful yellow journalism":

"The Munhwa Ilbo receives harsh criticism from the public for publishing nude photos of disgraced professor Shin Jeong-ah

By Shin Hae-in

The scandal surrounding disgraced former art professor Shin Jeong-ah took a new turn yesterday as a newspaper published naked pictures of her, raising the eyebrows, and drawing strong criticism, of many Koreans. The vernacular daily Munhwa Ilbo yesterday printed two nude photographs of Shin with her torso covered with a colored square. It alleged that she may have sexually lobbied high-profile figures to make her way up the social ladder. Byeon Yang-kyoon, a married senior aide to President Roh Moo-hyun, resigned Monday after his 'indecent relationship' with her came to light."
