Korean article in English:
http://www.religionnewsblog.com/18266/jung-myung-seok

A Justice Ministry official confirmed it is Jung

That article makes a lot of use the article I wrote last year.
http://gazette.gokmu.com/news/article.html?no=189
That's a nice feeling, but they really should have credited me or the Gazette...Mmmmm.

    SEOUL, May 16 (Yonhap) — A South Korean cult leader accused of raping his female followers has been captured in China and faces extradition, a South Korean official said Wednesday.

    Jeong Myeong-seok, 62, who has set up a cult of personality known as JMS after his initials, fled South Korea in 1999, one day after rape allegations against him aired on national television.

    The self-proclaimed messiah, formally charged with rape in 2001, was arrested in Hong Kong in 2003 on visa violations. Jeong fled an extradition hearing before being taken back into custody by Chinese authorities early this month.

    “We have confirmed the man captured on May 1 by the Chinese authorities is Jeong, the leader of JMS,” said a Justice Ministry official, requesting anonymity.

    Jeong claims he has received special revelations from God. Former members of his cult, mostly young girls, have told police they were told to disrobe for a “health check” and have sex with him to wipe off their sins. The girls said they were threatened with “spiritual death” if they spoke of their experiences.

    Jeong is still believed to command tens of hundreds of followers, including students, soldiers, teachers, and children.

A ten minute clip from Japan last week, they mention America a few times, and that first shot of  a mass wedding, is that JMS or the Moonies? I didn't realize JMS mass arranged weddings got that big:


Update: Video no longer available. I think I have it saved ....

I just found another Japanese news clip.

This looks like it was aired in Japan on May 13, 2007, 3 days after reports of Jung's arrest was first circulated.

I haven't watched the whole thing yet, but a few interesting shots in there, including brochures of cult front groups and the height restriction that appears on so many JMS sites. Jung's cheer dancers and "peace models" must be over 168cm tall. How can you be a peace model if you're short?

Update: Video no longer online. I think I saved everything...

I wasn't sure where to put this, I think it deals more with JMS's campus activities in Japan as opposed to his arrest.., maybe.

I think we need a specific thread for all the Japanese news clips.
I know a few Japanese speakers, so eventually I hope to have some rough translations of this and all the rest.

Any more news on this? Just curious as I received an e-mail from a former member. I think more and more Americans are finding this site and might be curious.

Last I heard, 2 weeks ago, Jung was still in jail in China.

I'm not sure how long the extradition process takes or if China wants to keep him to trial him for the crimes he's been accused of in China.  The whole process could take years.

Jung's arrest made the news, so hopefully any developments will be reported as well, and I should hear from Exodus when something major happens.

Glad to hear word might be spreading, I get that impression too!

Oops, it totally slipped my mind that the video news reports are no longer available.

Apologies to those who came here only to see all the videos in this thread are no longer available.

I do have them all on my hard drive and I'll put them back online, probably on Sunday.

I'm thinking of grouping them together by language: A collection of Japanese news clips and a collection of Korean news clips.

An article about Jung's arrest last year for Koreans studying English!

Cached Link

The version of the article for language learners is no longer online, but the article it was drawn from is, albeit with an erroneous headline.

Finally, something I can use at work, lol!
I taught a discussion debating class in the last vacation, that article would have been perfect!


    The Chinese authorities have detained Jung Myung-seok, a man who is believed to have founded the notorious JMS (Jesus Morning Star) cult, South Korean officials said over last weekend.
     
    China recently told the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade that it was holding a man believed to be Jung in custody, ministry sources said.
     
    The government is asking China to hand over Jung who being questioned by police in Anshan, Liaoning Province, northeastern China, according to the Yonhap News Agency in Seoul.
     
    Jung has been wanted by Korean police, for fraud, rape and embezzlement, since he fled the country in June 1999. The pseudo-religious leader was placed on the Interpol wanted list in 2002.
     
    He was arrested in 2003 for illegally staying in Hong Kong but was released on bail and then fled. He had been believed to be hiding in China.
     
    Established in Korea around 1980, the JMS expanded to Japan under the name of ``Setsuri,'' which means ``providence'' in Japanese, around 1987.
     
    Last January, Japanese police raided facilities connected to the Setsuri cult in Chiba on suspicion that a South Korean woman who belongs to the group had illegally obtained resident status. There are more than 2,000 followers of the cult in Japan, according to reports.
     
    Former members of the group, said followers choose tall, pretty and young female victims as ``sexual gifts'' and send photos of them to Jung.
    Jung then selects girls from the photos and calls the selectees from overseas to rape them.
     
    Jung asserts that he is the Messiah who has the responsibility of saving mankind and, has come with new teachings to finish the incomplete message and mission of Jesus Christ.
     
    Members of the cult refer to him as president, teacher or Lord, former group members said.

Thanks Peter for making all this information available over the years.  I've followed your forums and others for a long time, and since JMS' conviction Korean newspapers report his cult membership has dropped from 100,000 in Korea to less than 3,000 with a few thousand more in other countries.  You've done far more good to the world than JMS ever wanted.

There are still many other evil cults out there, but few had the combination of continually recruiting outsiders as initiates for rape - most simply raped their longtime existing members.  There are also man cults which are evil merely for monetary or other morally corrupt reasons (Moonies) but are not the same level of public threat.  Those people at least deserve to know the truth and make a judgement based on it, rather than to have the truth revealed after they've already agreed to marry into the system.

Bottom line JMS is Satan's work, and the very perversion of God that in the end is revealed as malicious lies for JMS' insatiable lust for rape.  And even though JMS is not yet finished, its diminished scope means that all this work has saved the lives and souls of thousands of future victims.

I don't think this Chinese language article has been posted here before. Google Translation is offered. It's not perfect, nor is it terrible. I may ask a Chinese friend for an improved translation.

May 22, 2007: 韩国著名“淫乱教主”郑明析在中国落入法网(组图) Korea's famous "Lecherous leader" Zheng Ming analysis falls into the law in China (Wenxu City)

Google Translation
Quote
Recently, major South Korean media and websites have reported prominent positions. Jeong, the leader of the Korean cult “Campag” placed by the Interpol on the list of the Red Wanted, has landed in China. In South Korea, hundreds of women have now accused Jeong of conducting rape and harassment against them in the name of preaching. The South Koreans hope that China will extradite him to South Korea for trial.
Seated undercover in South Korean intelligence agency

In 1999, South Korea’s SBS television station conducted a thorough investigation and revealed the facts of Jeong's analysis on collecting money and playing with women in special programs. Then, four female victims stood up bravely and sued Zheng Ming for criminal rape. However, just before the police started his arrest, Jeong suddenly disappeared. Many years later, the South Korean police discovered that the former members in the Korean presidential palace Cheong Wa Dae and the national prosecution agency undertook an undercover investigation for Jeong. It was precisely because the Yinmou of the National Intelligence Service and the prosecutor Lee were Zheng Ming. Analysing the letter of misfortune was the only way he managed to escape.

After escaping South Korea, Jeong has set up more than 40 clubs in cities such as Tokyo and Osaka, Japan. He called on more than a dozen women every day to conduct sexual assaults in the name of checking the body. A former believer revealed that because he was afraid of having sexually transmitted diseases, he was only looking for virgins. In 2002, three Japanese women sued Jeong for sexual assaults. They said that she witnessed Zheng Ming’s analysis of sexual intercourse with more than 30 Japanese women in the same room. Some of them looked like high school students.

While escaping while committing crime

Since 2002, Jeong has been wanted by the International Criminal Police. ZJeong no longer dared to go to Japan and specialize in "operating in Taiwan." He conducted activities in Taiwan under the name of the “China Youth Christian Youth Era”, and organized a large number of female college students to join the association in the name of participating in model contests around the world. Taiwan’s police said that Jeong’s analysis (teachings?) had also played with hundreds of women in Taiwan, but only one woman, who was translated in front of him, was resisted by Zheng Ming’s wife (? ?) and filed a lawsuit against Zheng Ming’s analysis. After hearing the wind, Zheng Ming fled in a hurry and illegally entered Hong Kong, China.

In Hong Kong, the Council (JMS) also has a branch office called "The Moon Church." In July 2003, Jeong was arrested by the Hong Kong Immigration Bureau on suspicion of being illegally detained. When he was arrested in a Hong Kong luxury home, he was gathering with two women in sexy swimsuits. He was almost sent to South Korea, but was released on bail after delivering 100,000 U.S. dollars. Jeong is very clear about the kind of trial that he will face when he returns to South Korea, so he absconded and absconded and once again disappeared.

Later, according to Taiwanese media, Jeong used the name “Zheng Mingxi” to enter Taiwanese activities, but the police pursued it without success. Until April 2006, four South Korean women victims were accompanied by a non-governmental aid organization to hold a press conference in Seoul to confirm the four luxury villas in the Tianshan Valley, Anshan City, Liaoning Province, China. He continued to develop the organization in the local area, calling Korean followers to go to worship and collaborate with more than 50 Korean, Japanese and Hong Kong women.

Why Cross-Country Runaways?

Jeong was born in 1945 in a poor family in Busan (If translation is correct, I think it's a mistake), South Korea. When he graduated from elementary school, he was devious, eloquent, and determined to "get ahead." Unfortunately, he chose to use religion to lie to this dangerous and evil road.

In South Korea, there are many religious denominations, large and small churches are operating in a corporatized manner, and some unscrupulous priests have absorbed as many people as they are in the practice of MLM. They have done a great job of mentally brainwashing them and tricking them into giving away their valuables. Jeong’s initial refuge was the “unification teaching” of another church in Korea. Here, Jeong gradually learned and mastered the various methods of using the money for preaching, accumulated extensive contacts, and then separated from the unified teaching in 1980. A new sect "Campus" was created.

The self-proclaimed “real Christ Jesus who reappeared in the world” used the Protestantism to teach large numbers of believers, especially female followers. One of its teachings clearly states that “God allows him to have sexual intercourse with all women in the world” because this “education of love” is precisely a shortcut for sinners to redeem themselves. Many blind adherent women listen to people and are willing to do so. Even if Joeng’s analysis was internationally wanted, the police wanted them to come out and give evidence for their own harm. They also chose to reject and silence. This is Jeong’s analysis. The constant playing of women for decades has been an important reason for impunity.

However, once again the foxes have their tails exposed. According to a statement issued on May 16 by the Korean Ministry of Justice, Jeong was arrested in Beijing on May 1. He is currently being interrogated by the Chinese police in Anshan, Liaoning Province. It seems that the evil path of South Korea’s “head of forgiveness” has finally come to an end. .
