However, the offense of using these functions in a bad way is becoming bolder as time goes by, and the number crime is increasing rapidly. This illegal act is the Illegal filming.

 This Illegal filming began in the ‘Nth room’ incident in 2020. Illegal filming is an action of filming or being photographed a person without permission.

Among them, the psychological damage suffered by the victims will be greater than we can imagine. You may have to carry the trauma and scars for the rest of your life.
