Han Ye-chan, who wrote the children’s fantasy series’Seo Yeoni Series’, was sentenced to imprisonment at the first trial on charges of child molestation. The publisher who published his book decided to retrieve Han’s book from the bookstore.
On the 15th, Gamunbi published a book on the homepage of the article, “Announcement on the sentence of sexual harassment by Han Ye-chan,” “Yes 24, Aladdin, Kyobo Bookstore, etc. If you want to return without revealing, we decided to receive all returns.”
Han has published dozens of books, including fantasy fairy tales’Seoyeon and the magic series’,’Seoyeon and the magical super vaccine’, and’Seoyeon and Princess Pyeonggang’.
He also wrote sex education fairy tales for children,’The Secret Note of Smile’ and various nursery rhymes. Currently, only 43 books by Mr. Han are searched through the family homepage.
Han was charged with sexual harassment of an elementary school student he taught himself, and was tried since 2018, and was sentenced to two years and six months in prison under the Suwon District Law in December last year. Han appealed against the ruling of the first trial.
When the results of the trial became known, criticism came out for the fact that the trial was proceeding for child molestation and that the author’s book, sentenced to jail, continued to be published and distributed.
Accordingly, the publishing company made a position to recall Han’s book, and major bookstores decided to stop selling their own. Public libraries, such as the National Library of Korea and the National Library for Children and Young Adults, also made it impossible to read Han’s books.
