I am willing to bet that the majority of hard core Internet users in Korea are male and thus why these so called “Ladygate” receive more attention than similar videos involving males:
An annual report by the World Economic Forum on gender equality lowered South Korea’s ranking by a notch for this year, placing it 108th out of 135 countries. Gender bias is often blamed on Korea’s history of Confucianism for lowering the social position of women, and these days, perhaps nowhere else is the bias more prominent that on the country’s Internet.
A series of so-called “Ladygate” incidents that frequently emerge in the local news cycle have been shared and voted upon by netizens, making them highly-ranked articles on popular search engine sites. Netizens also frequently register impulsive and reactionary comments that they probably would have kept to themselves if not for the anonymity of cyberspace.
A Ladygate incident generally involves a Korean woman behaving in a manner deemed socially unacceptable, and being covertly filmed with a smartphone camera. The video is then uploaded and shared on one of the major Korean online portals.
In some cases, criticism of the female subject is less disputed. One video, depicting “Heel Girl” shows one young woman attacking another, using the bottom of her high-heeled shoes as a blunt weapon. Another video, “Cup Noodle Girl,” merely shows a young teenager eating a cup of instant noodles on the Seoul subway — illegal, but harmless to others. [Yonhap]
