Last week was the six-month anniversary of the murder of a young woman near Gangnam Station. The murder sparked an explosive discussion in South Korean society about rampant misogyny. This comic strip is the first in a three-part installment that discusses feminism and gender inequality since the Gangnam murder in May.
Correction: The comic mistakenly portrays professor Hong Seong-su’s gender as female. He is a male professor of law at Sookmyung Women’s University in Seoul.
