A professor at a private university had an unwanted physical contact with a student at a gathering place. Later, the professor said that it was an encouragement, and we will only pass on the interviews that I gave about the specific situation at the time so that the victims were not hurt again during the reporting process.

First of all, I am a reporter Cho, Ki-ho.

<Reporter> At the

end of last month, a private university student and faculty had dinner at the pension after completing a marine field class.

At around 10 pm, Professor A called a female student next to her.

[Mr. B/Sexual harassment student: I was wearing shorts, I. I sat down on my knees. (Professor A) Sit down comfortably while holding my ankle... .] It

is said that sexual assault began from that time.

[Mr. B/Sexual harassment student: He kept stroking my instep. I was petting the calf more and more... .] I

wanted to leave my place right away, as I became increasingly bold, but I couldn't.

[Mr. B/Sexual harassment student: The position of the professor itself has a pressure on me. 'Oh, I wouldn't do this. Let's hold on for a bit.' .]

What surprised me more was the moment I went to the bathroom.

[Mr. B/Sexual harassment student: It comes out but suddenly comes in, into the bathroom. While hugging me,'Do you know that I am pretty ○○?']

Mr. B claims to have been molested all the way to the toilet three times for three hours.

Students also witnessed Professor A's actions.

[Mr. C/Sexual molestation student: I was sitting across from the victim girl (Professor A), keeping my hands on my thighs...

[ ] Mr. D/Sexual molestation student: (I saw Professor A's hand) on his leg. I wanted to say'what',' so ○○ oh, did you not come and drink your sister?' .]

Professor A said there was some physical contact, but it was only an encouragement, and he had no intention of sexual harassment.

Also, I replied that the bathroom door was not locked, so I stumbled upon it.

[Professor of sexual harassment A: I knocked on like this and said,'Let's do it hard'. I can tell you that I am innocent. (What are you saying is innocent?) I did it with encouragement and love and caring... .] The

university said it was conducting a fact-finding investigation and advised Professor A to stop teaching for the time being.
