South Korea’s playground for the rich and famous has been rocked by a major scandal over the alleged drugging and rape of women and young girls. Police have arrested more than 350 people in connection with claims of sexual abuse and exploitation in Seoul’s Gangnam nightclub district. A BBC investigation spoke to victims who say they were drugged with an undetectable substance before being dragged into nightclub back rooms or alleyways and then raped by one or more men, sometimes while being filmed on mobile phones. We speak to Laura Bicker, the BBC’s correspondent in Seoul about the scandal, and what it could mean for women in South Korea. Producers: Philly Beaumont and Lucy Hancock Mixed by Nicolas Raufast Editor: John Shields
