"What matters is prevention, not punishment"
A 3 million won fine was sentenced to media reporter Lee, Park, senior assistant to a Lawmaker, and Park, another being for spreading news about a sexual footage of actress Lee Si-young.
Lee Si-young only wanted legal punishment to those who started this rumor and not those who intervened later.
Investigators found the first person to circulate these rumors including thousands of others who helped. They were likely to be fined for aiding but Lee Si-young didn't want them fined.
She stood by her policy that prevention was more important than punishment. She wanted to deliver the message that anyone who aided in spreading false rumors online were likely to get legal punishment.
The sexual humiliation she's receiving is also another reason. Extreme articles, which were completely irrelevant, started lining up online after the first rumor began. She received a tremendous amount of stress from it and hoped the fire didn't spread to irrelevant matters.
