According to the Guardian, the Ministry of Justice of Korea pointed out that the purpose of the amendment was to prevent domestic violence and protect the rights of foreign spouses in Korean families. There is no time limit for the record of those who have committed domestic violence. In addition, any person sentenced for sexual offences against children in the past decade will also be subject to legal restrictions.
In July this year, a video of domestic violence was widely disseminated in South Korea. A 30-year-old Vietnamese woman was beaten and abused by her 36-year-old Korean husband. The video quickly aroused public anger in Korean society after it was exposed. The man told the police that he beat his wife when he was drunk because she cant express herself fluently in Korean.
According to the data from the Korean Embassy in Vietnam, about 6,000 Vietnamese women marry Korean men every year, while a survey of 920 foreign wives by the Korean Human Rights Commission in 2018 found that 42% of them had suffered domestic violence and 68% had suffered sexual harassment.
