Suspect of SNSD nude pictures circulation caught

23 Feb – It was reported that the suspect who spread nude photo-shopped photos of SNSD members on the Internet has been caught.

As reported on Kpopstarz website, according to the Seoul police, the suspect is a 53-year-old government employee, only identified as "G". The police reported that "G" used his office computer during work hours last December to upload photo-shopped images of half-naked SNSD members. In the images, the girls are seen wearing the Korean traditional Han Bok, but their bottom parts are skilfully cropped out for naked photos instead.

However, the accused testified that he was not responsible for producing the actual photo, as he only uploaded it after downloading it from other online communities.

Currently, the police are holding further investigation to figure out who the actual designer is.

Last week, it was reported that SNSD became the next victim of nude photo-shopped photos. It was the second time in two years for the girls to get victimised by such crime and SM Entertainment immediately requested the police to find the person in charge of circulating the illegal photos and threatened to sue the perpetrator if caught.

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
