SEOUL – Po­lice have ar­rested one of the own­ers of a no­to­ri­ous re­venge porn site banned in 2016.

Sora. net had more than a mil­lion users and hosted thou­sands of videos taken and shared with­out the knowl­edge or con­sent of the women fea­tured.

Korean po­lice say the web­site’s own­ers made money from il­le­gal brothel and gam­bling ads on the site.

But the sus­pect, sur­named Song, has de­nied this, say­ing the site’s users cre­ated the il­le­gal con­tent.

Pro­duc­ing and dis­sem­i­nat­ing pornog­ra­phy is il­le­gal in South Korea. Song has been charged un­der the Chil­dren and Ju­ve­nile Sex Pro­tec­tion Law.

She is one of four peo­ple, in­clud­ing her hus­band, who ran the site from 1999 to 2016, us­ing over­seas servers, the Korea Her­ald re­ports.
