Korean netizens demand control over phone zooms after baseball game video jammed
South Korea loves baseball. It’s a little-known fact, but few Koreans like this sport, which is hardly practiced in France.
It’s the middle of the season and the fans love spending hours in the stadium. Only a recent post about one of these fans attracted attention.
Several games a week are held at Samsung Lions Park in Daegu.
Recently, during a game, a fan was caught on video using his phone’s superzoom inappropriately.
In a video that has gone viral on the internet, a netizen filmed a man sitting in front of him using a GALAXY S23 Ultra cell phone to record Molka videos.
The man is seen using the S23 Ultra’s “Space Zoom” feature to zoom in on a female fan across the stadium.
“Look at this motherfucker taking molka shots in a stadium. The zoom function of our mobile phones has made our life easier. But there are people who use the feature for such things. Please be careful; You don’t know who is looking where. » – Internet users
Even more worryingly, the netizen revealed that this man appeared to have shared the recorded videos on a website.
“Comment: He didn’t take any pictures though.
Answer: He has. And he uploaded the photos to a website. He was fast with his hands, so it was difficult to figure out what he was doing at first. »
« Comment: But it looks like the woman is accompanied by a man.
Answer: I saw it. He filmed several women. At first I didn’t know what was going on. But later I realized that he was after women. »
After seeing this video, many netizens reacted with disgust.
- “It makes me vomit. »
- “Go to the ballpark. Check out baseball. »
- “WTF? Isn’t he aware that other people have his back? Isn’t he ashamed? Disgusting ”
- “Ew… I’ve never thought about it… He must be behind bars. Whore. »
- “I knew it was going to happen. I’m not even surprised. »
- “You also have to be careful with the windows. [Ultra zoom] You can easily peek inside the apartments of the complexes. »
- “I think cellphone camera speculation should be regulated. These functions should be limited to medical and/or technical applications. »
- “It reminds me of all the people who thought women were scared of being victims of Molka crimes. »
- “I didn’t like the idea of Space Zoom on the Ultra model for this very reason when it was first announced. We are in Korea after all… the land of the Molka. »
- “I agree that regulations need to be put in place. It’s clear that people don’t have the same common sense when it comes to consensus shooting. »
- “I was concerned about this feature when the S23 Ultra was first released. »
- “There should be some kind of regulation for zoom specs on small devices [comme les téléphones] »
