I guess the issue of Jeong's fugitive status in the early 2000s is mute now since he has since been tried and convicted of rape, but I just came across old screenshots I took of the Korean police's board and figured them worth sharing. The first two concern the original rape charges and the last the later issuance of an Interpol red notice:

As RB pointed out here, Japan's Asahi Shimbun (Newspaper) reported in 2006 that Jeong was placed on Interpol's wanted list in 2002.  I'm not sure whether Asahi got their facts wrong or if a lower alert was issued before the Red Notice was issued in 2004 (I'm assuming the postings by the police are correct). There are differing levels of Interpol notices, red being the most serious. More about Interpol notices here: http://www.interpol.int/INTERPOL-expertise/Notices

Just browsing Interpol's current wanted list reveals that all those on it have been issued with Red Notices.
