Korean Cult Leader Pressed for More Charges

Throwing light on evil cults in South Korea, Netflix documentary In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal exposes the dark side of unquestioning belief, with the story of JMS leader Jung Myung Seok taking up 3 episodes alone. As the cult leader’s detention period is set to expire on April 27, prosecution is mulling over bringing additional charges against him!

More Sexual Misconduct Allegations Levelled 
Self-proclaimed messiah and founder of Jesus Morning Star (JMS) cult, the 78-year-old was involved in sexually assault of two women from Hong Kong and Australia, and detained for six months by a local court order in October 2022. This was after he was released in 2018 after a 10-year jail sentence.

Reports say that Daejon District Prosecutors’ Office is now reviewing the evidence and plans to indict him on additional sexual assault allegations levelled by three other female followers, who said they suffered sexual harassment and assault multiple times since 2018 within church facilities in Chungcheongnam-do.

JMS’ Case Against Netflix Documentary Dismissed

Hong Konger Maple Yip (葉萱), whom singer and actor Alex Fong (方力申) admitted to dating, is one of the 2 cult victims who shared their stories in the Netflix documentary. The controversial Korean cult had tried but failed to stop the docuseries from airing, after its case was dismissed.

Shocking details shared from the truth-telling series showed how adept Jung Myung Seok was at brainwashing and exploiting his victims, one of whom was quoted, “Everyone said he is not that sort of person…at that time I totally did not sense that I was victimized.”
