Vernacular daily Munhwa Ilbo yesterday made a public apology for publishing nude photographs of Shin Jeong-ah, a former art professor accused of corruption. Shin has been arrested for degree forgery and receiving dishonest government support through an indecent relationship with a senior presidential aide. The paper published two nude pictures of Shin last month, alleging that she slept with high-profile figures to help her up the social ladder. The paper has been slammed by the public for infringing upon Shin's privacy and human rights."
