After the "N Room" incident in South Korea, if you are also anxious about the situation of your children, before the next regret, we'd like to give you a few things to start with.
After South Korea's mass online sexual abuse "Room N" came to light on March 20, the public launched a "public suspect data and photos" campaign to the "National Petition Edition" of Qinghuatai, while the South Korean media SBS immediately released the photo and background identity of the "Doctor" Zhao's last name on the 23rd, and the main suspect of Zhao's surname has been transferred to the prosecution on the 25th. (Understanding the beginning and end of the matter:"I saw the children barking like dogs" reporter scoffed the horrors of South Korea's "Room N"
The "Room N" incident caused a public outcry, including the incident over a period of more than a year, brutality, and a total of more than 200,000 visitors to the group, a total of at least 74 victims, 16 of whom were underage girls. All kinds of malicious and hurtful intentions, let people to this cause of anger, sadness and uneasiness, for a moment do not know where to start to face and repair.

Indeed, the crime system that caused it was not a one-day development, and there are huge levels of discussion that need to be discussed. So we can also ask, after the publication of information about the perpetrators and the concern about punishment, these crimes will really be stopped?
Perhaps more important now is that we have to take a good look at the messages behind this incident, including missing sex education, safe use of children's networks, etc., to prevent the recurrence of the same incident. We also look back from the case in South Korea to see taiwan, what is the current situation of child sexual exploitation and the support system? What can we do for our children when parents are anxious about the news?
More than a year, 74 victims revealed the message: Where is our support system?
With more than a year of sexual abuse in Room N, we can't help but wonder whether the 74 victims have been subjected to fraud, seduction and coercing victims.
Why don't they call the police, why don't they tell friends or family, or have already said it, but may be forced to squeal because of more shackles on women's image, fear of sexual humiliation, etc.? The incident was finally exposed after a long-simmering journalist gathered enough data, and as mentioned in their"Reporter's Note" in Room N,
"I had the courage to try to reach out to the victims with the phone number shared in the chat room, and wanted to say to the children, "It's okay, I can get out, I can save them." I want to tell you, you have done nothing wrong, don't be afraid. But most people don't answer the phone, and a day later the number becomes empty. 」
"They may think it's a dream to turn off their phones, or they just hope it's a dream." Where are the children in hell now? Can we find those children as soon as possible? 」
It's like a dark place, where children suffer from what kind of inner torture, fear but no way out makes people feel worried with their imaginations. And it's definitely not the only case where a child has no help in being sexually assaulted or sexually harassed. We can also think about what a home can do for children before the next tragedy.

First of all, we invite every parent to start talking to their children about the most basic physical education. Start with knowing your body autonomy and tell your child that anyone who wants to touch you anywhere needs your consent. This is an interest that you already have, and it is not right if someone else infringes it, and you can get up and resist. Next, we talk about sex education. We can communicate with children, the emergence of desire, and the correct communication of the pipeline why. Step by step, you can even use the "Room N" incident as a discussion case to tell your child why curiosity sometimes causes harm, and the dangers and pitfalls that may be caused by network communication and use.

That is, if something really happens, you'll be the one who can reassure him that you'll be able to help him when he needs it. Do a good home of the protective net, also let us after this incident, can not just worry, but began to be more prepared.
Internet Child Sexual Exploitation: How can I protect children in a world I can't see?
In addition to basic physical and sexual education, and let children understand that they can be accepted, we should also learn more about Taiwan's network environment and the lack of laws and regulations, as well as the corresponding countermeasures.
In August 2017, Taiwan police cracked down on indecent images of underage girls with a capacity of up to 120G in Lin and Jun's home, with as many as 121 victims, the youngest of whom was only eight years old. According to the Free Times, the suspect, surnamed Lin, used community dating apps such as Beetalk, Line and Facebook to exchange fake photos for nude videos or photos of teenage girls from May 2014 to July 2017. In addition, he even shared the photos with friends, inviting victims to meet for naked "external shots" and sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 16.
In 2018, a 20-year-old male, Zhang Yuesheng, was caught distributing 10 indecent photos of children on well-known US social networking sites. The Free Times reported that police found 2077 photographs of children and teenagers exposed or indecently assaulted , sexually indecent , and 180 films on the hard drive of Mr Cheung's computer . According to the Central News Agency , the FBI's global list of 100 men monitoring the distribution of child pornography , including two men from Taiwan , including a 36-year-old man surnamed He living in Xinzhuang District of New Taipei City , downloaded and uploaded 588 videos and photos of child and adolescent sexual acts for download and viewing by the non-specific public , and a 30-year-old man in the Panqiao District who distributed sexual intercourse and photographs in the same way as 1385 children and young people .

In a full version of the "Seeing Children" feature by Right Plus journalist Ye Jinglun, the expansion of the Internet has accelerated the criminal chain of child sexual imaging. In Taiwan, for example, it may also face a crime blocking bill that is too light and complete: "In 2018, he cooperated with the FBI to arrest the two men, Kaohsiung City Police Department Women and Children's Team Police Officer Xie Shenglong pointed out that the relevant cases in Taiwan is very low in the penalty rate compared to The European and American countries, even if the police usually take the initiative to conduct online reconnaissance, to find a way to collect evidence, but the suspect struck the end of the light sentence or not to prosecute, seriously undermining police morale." 」
Xie Shenglong also said that children in life or the Network was abducted, filmed, images, trafficking, and finally downloaded, held, spread, this series of processes need to give the police a chance to block. However, Taiwan's relevant bills, such as the Child and Adolescent Sexual Exploitation Prevention Ordinance,which came into effect in 2017, have not addressed the pre-production process, although the definition of child sexual exploitation in the "internet age" has been added to Article 2. (Note: Reference Data 2)
These deficiencies are all areas where the Government and we should continue to pay attention to and improve. And we still have a point to exert. The Ministry of Education's Initiative for the Prevention and Control of Child Sexual Exploitation and Campus Revenge Porn Incidents, which focuses on secondary schools to universities, focuses on:
1. No matter who you are, it's a crime to steal and intimidate.
Second, the dissemination of private photos, will face criminal law and civil claims
Three, the secret film is not your fault, should be brave to ask for help
Four, when the net love into money extortion, screenshots retain evidence
And the following should be avoided by the use of the ding-dong network:
1. Never take images of others against their will
2. Never follow instructions from others to take private photos of selfies
3. Never rush to deliver video messages
4. Never forward any private image files
5. People who never make fun of or bully private images
And what you can do if you're harassed online:
1. Inform family members and teachers
2. Keep evidence for screenshots (full web page and conversation)
3. Report to the police
4. To report, block, delete each other
To protect children's network security, every parent, children to work together, repeatedly communicate the correct ideas. You may have rarely talked about these topics at home in the past, but the more we know, the more we can exert our power, than you would not have said earlier, than to open the window earlier.
Four Actions for Parents

2. Let your child know that you will be the conduit for his support system and the right to turn to them in the event of danger
3. Educating children about the scope and behavior of online sex crimes and understanding what shouldn't be done
