The latest true crime thriller on Netflix isn''t for the faint of heart. Cyber Hell: Exposing an Internet Horror reveals the rapid rise of two online sex trafficking rings that first emerged in South Korea just a few years ago. These organizations would gain access to intimate pictures and videos of their victims, exploiting them as blackmail as they sought more sexual and violent content. That was the only tip of the morally depraved iceberg that is this case.
Because the Nth Room and the Doctors Room targeted South Korea, there''s a possibility you haven''t heard of one of the greatest internet instances in recent history. Before you press play on Netflix, here''s what you''ll need to know about this horrific real crime case.
What Was the Newth Room, When Was It The Doctors Room?
The Nth Room was a sexual slavery ring in South Korea between 2018 and 2020. It was almost exclusively managed by Telegram, an encrypted cloud-based instant messaging service, and the name of the eight groups came from their ordinal numeral. Many of these images were cruel and destructive. Theses images would then be advertised and sold to select groups.
The Nth Room was seen as as nefarious as it gets. Usually, victims would access their personal information and social media accounts, but others would be reluctant to disclose the photographs to their friends, friends, and other professionals if they didn''t cooperate. Another option was to get money in exchange for seemingly harmless tasks before the requests escalated.
The most horrific thing in the Nth Room was location tracking. In some instances, these abusers were able to know who their victims were located and would track them down. As they were sexually assaulted, the perpetrators would film the crime.
The Nth Room was the first of these Telegram-based sexual slavery rings to be discovered, staffed by a user with the nickname God God. Nearly a year later, a copycat user appeared. It was then named the Doctors Room, which combines social media with personal information to track down and blackmail them. This group had a total of 260,000 people working on this pornography. This number has grown to over 260,000 people.
What Happened to the New Thumb Room and the Doctors Room?
The law for this case is done to the media and everyday citizens. Several individuals submitted these information to the police, but the authorities did not initially respond to these reports. It''s unclear if this failure erupted from neglecting what was happening or if they didn''t find these reports credible.
TheElectronic Times, a South Korean newspaper, investigated reports about Telegram publishing child pornography. In August of 2019, the story immediately sparked a public outcry, resulting in an online petition signed by more than 5 million people who requested the police publicly disclose the Doctors'' identity.
If (he) is not a devil, who else can you say is a devil? Human rights are a luxury for someone who contemplates mildness and humiliation, according to a petition.
Who Was Arrested for the Nth Room and the Doctors Room?
First, there is God God himself. Before his arrest, God God taunted the cops, claiming that the authorities would not be able to charge him because he never used his own phone and only used gift vouchers that couldn''t be tracked. On that count, he was wrong. In April of 2021, Moon Hyung-wook was sentenced to 34 years in prison.
The Doctor was then identified as Cho Joo-bin in March 2020. He was convicted of harassment and was sentenced to 40 years in prison. In addition to these important names, Mr. Jeon was also known as the Watchman, the nickname known to the user who made the Nth Room popular. For his crimes, Mr. Jeon was sentenced to three years and six months in prison. Mr. Shin, an Nth Room operator who took over the organization from God God, was given one year.
It''s impossible that these arrests account for all the criminals who were responsible for the Nth Room and the Doctors Room. Both organizations were intricate, relying on systems of administrators, harassers, recruiters, and blackmailers. That''s without mentioning those who subscribed to these organizations that sold child pornography. This story has come to an end with the two most famous names in this criminal case behind bars.
