Update: Gusts of Popular Feeling has a translation of several hagwon teachers and students being arrested for selling and using drugs.

On July 21 Judge Kim Gyeong-hwan of the Changwon District Courts 4th Criminal Division sentenced Mr. A, a hagwon instructor, to two years in prison and five years of offender registration after he was found guilty of attempting to sexually assault a female student.

In the ruling the judge wrote that “given the fact that the defendant attempted to rape his student after feeding her a prepared sleeping pill, a prison sentence is inevitable.”

Mr. A, a hagwon instructor, offered Ms. A, a 16-year-old female student, a glass of milk that contained a sleeping pill when she had come to his home for a supplementary lesson last December, then attempted to sexually assault after she had lost consciousness.
