#MeToo has arrived in South Korea:
"The Me Too movement has received endorsement by President Moon Jae-in, who on Sunday reiterated his support as he pledged to eliminate sexual misconduct and gender-based discrimination. 
'Recently, our society, along with the Me Too movement, is in the midst of a crucial change,' Moon said in a congratulatory message for a ceremony commemorating the March 8 International Women’s Day in central Seoul.
'The Me Too movement is leading Korea toward becoming a society in which sexual equality and women’s rights are realized and the dignity of all people is respected.'"
And while the movement is a breath of fresh air in a highly traditional society, two suicides involving men accused of sexual abuse have already occurred.
