The photo captures ‘2018-Minute-Long Talk to End 2018’s Sexism and Sexual Violence’, taken place over two days in Seoul, Republic of Korea. Victims of sexual violence, who have been asked to remain silent under wrongful customs, have now begun to raise their voices. #metoo was also triggered in literary circle. Poet Choi Young-mi raised the charge against another poet for the sexual harrasement. The trial has begun for the press and Choi, filed by the accused poet. The poet, Ko Un, is the acclaimed literary figure in Korea, often referred as a frontrunner for the Nobel Prize in literature.
