Hashtag #imsorryjungin has been taking over the internet by the public to relay their apologies in not being able to protect Jung In. Numerous celebrities have taken part in sharing the hashtag, bringing more awareness and urgency to the case. The adoptive parents, who were caught with over 800 disturbing videos that showed abuse towards the child, will be tried in Jung In’s wrongful death. The public is also calling for the Yangcheon Police Department to be tried as they were given three opportunities to save Jung In’s life but instead, dismissed each child abuse report. They only acted after she had passed away from her injuries.
With Jung In’s child abuse case going to trial on January 13, we can only hope that she will get the justice she deserves. May the beautiful angel rest in peace.
