South Korean Youtuber Harassed By Mumbai Men

Hyojeong Park, a 24-year-old South Korean YouTuber, was exploring the city of dreams, Mumbai, in the evening at 8 pm. Over 1000 people were watching her live stream from the streets of Mumbai’s Khar neighborhood. Just then, two men walked in, and one of them tried to pull the YouTuber by her hand as she shouted “no” repeatedly.

The man was seen coming close to her and forcing her to sit on his bike even after she protested. As she walked away, the man, accompanied by another, followed her on a bike. The two offered her a lift while she tried to deny it in broken English, saying that she lived nearby. A Twitter user tweeted this video and requested strict action against the two men.
