Setback for Koliban as Judge Rules Women Can Meet Men Alone

In a setback for Korea's conservative Koliban, who believe that women should keep their physical distance from men they are not related to, an appeals court upheld a lower court ruling this week acquitting a man who visited a female colleague at home - without her husband's permission - of home invasion.

Judge Kim concluded that "the defendant visited his female colleague's home with her consent, which can hardly lead to the conclusion that he intended to commit adultery or other behavior not accepted in society."

While legal precedent has previously established that being male is not sufficient to prove intent to commit adultery because of the very small number of homosexuals in Korea, the real shock for social conservatives is the notion that the accused had not exhibited 'behavior not accepted in society', when groups like the Koliban believe that the very act of being alone with a woman is clearly not acceptable in society, and that the legal principle was therefore axiomatic on the basis of K-Logic.

The woman's husband – identified as 38 year-old 'Oh', had claimed that as the co-living rights owner in the residence he owned the right to all items of property within it, including his wife, and that by trespassing into his territory the accused man had broken his 'peaceful life'. However some legal experts have said that the case, which began in 2010, was flawed from the beginning because it was the woman who should have been prosecuted for immorality.

Last year, real men reacted with alarm when figures revealed that the so-called 'female consensual sex outbreak' was worsening, and some men have taken measures to try and protect their property. 45 year-old Kim in Mokpo says he has invented underwear which prevents extramarital affairs by changing color when it is removed. The subsequent loss of body heat causes the fabric's temperature to drop which triggers the color change. As items made with the special fabric never return to their original color, the wearer's partner can immediately see whether they are being cheated on.

While a patent has been applied for, it is difficult to prejudge whether the underwear can be registered because its content is often open to the public, and the underwear has some other drawbacks in terms of commercialization; the wearer could remove their underwear for a long time in a sauna or restroom, or it could change color if the wearer urinates outside, which is a common practice late in the evening. It is thought there may also be a design flaw – the inventor has admitted that when his wife wears underwear made with the special fabric, it changes color when he approaches her.
