The guilty were confirmed for YouTubers who insulted former Dongyang University professor Jeong Kyung-sim, the spouse of former Justice Minister Cho Kook, by mimicking the appearance of wearing an eye patch.

The third division of the Supreme Court (Presiding Judge Noh Jeong-hee) confirmed the lower court sentenced to a fine of 2 million won to YouTuber Yeom Mo, who was accused of insult.

Mr. Yeom, who served as president of President Yoon Seok-yeol's fan club, was accused of swearing and insulting by loudly mentioning the eye patch worn by former professor Jeong, who came to the Seoul Central District Court for trial between July and September 2020.

1st trial and 2nd trial admitted guilty.

The judge sentenced a fine of 2 million won, saying, "The defendant's words and actions correspond to expressions of abstract judgment or contemptuous feelings that may lower the victim's social evaluation."

The Supreme Court confirmed the punishment, seeing that there was no problem such as misunderstanding of the law.

Conservative YouTuber Park Mo, who was prosecuted along with Yeom, was also fined.

In 2020, Mr. Park was accused of making insulting remarks on YouTube, etc., by mimicking the appearance of former professor Jeong in court.

Ms. Park even mocked former professor Jung by reenacting the image of her wearing an eyepatch.

The first and second trials sentenced him to a fine of 2 million won, saying, "Reenacting the disability or imitating it is an act of humiliation."

Park did not appeal after the second trial verdict.
