As the violence and stalking between lovers continued, the presidential candidates made promises.
Candidate Jae-myung Lee advocated the enactment of the so-called 'Hwang Ye-jin Act' to strengthen punishment for dating violence.

We will improve the system for accurate location tracking.]
We plan to integrate victim protection agencies and make them dedicated, and create a new healing subsidy.
Candidate Sang-Jeong Shim said that by enacting the Stalking Victims Protection Act, the scope of protection will be extended to family members and those around them, and comprehensive support for livelihood, medical care, and law will be provided.
Candidate Ahn Cheol-soo said that he would punish youth for stalking and extend the ban on victims from 100m to 1km.
All four candidates were unanimous in repealing the stalking crime anti-punishment clause.

However, even if a promise is legislated, it will not be effective unless it is supported by manpower and budget.
Since the enforcement of the Stalking Punishment Act in October of last year, the number of reported stalking surged 5.2 times.
This year, 70 victims protection personnel and 150 stalking police officers were added, but there is still a shortage.
It is often the victim's responsibility to prove the crime after reporting it.
