One thought on “The Gyeonggi International Ceramic Biennale, Seoul

  1. , many of his victims were locetad in Uijeongbu (where I live and work) and nearby Yangju. The way he gained access to the women’s homes is by looking for open doors on the veranda of apartments and then climbing up gas pipes.While there are certainly examples of police incompetence in Korea, I’m not sure how many apartments have CCTV situated to cover the veranda. With that in mind, catching this criminal was probably more difficult than if he was always going in through the front door.Our vice-director also mentioned that some of the multiple assaults came when he returned to the same apartment and raped a sister or cousin living in the same place — not sure if this was misreported by our vice-director, by a news agency, or if different sources are interpreting “multiple” in more than one way.And dammit, why does this have to be another example of bad news coming out of Uijeongbu / northern Gyeonggi-do?
