Online article ahead of a segment on tonight's (Dec 11) current affairs show, 7:30 - that's the name of the show for non-Australians.

December 11, 2017: Sex, Cults and the Bizarre World of Providence Leader Jeong Myeong-seok

And here is Gerry talking about the experience of watching SBSís 2014 report and realizing his daughter was a member of the JMS cult. That that could happen certainly never entered my mind while assisting SBS with that report.

The segment aired on 7:30 is now online: http://www.abc.net.au/7.30/father-struggles-to-get-daughter-out-of-cult/9248254

JMS members were told not to watch it, and well, I'm a little reluctant to watch it myself. Maybe in a day or two. Here are a few photographic mememtos from the morning we filmed back in August.

And News.com just followed suite:

http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/news-life/how-a-promising-law-student-ended-up-in-a-sinister-cult/news-story/67878f2eefd15e0e944c92568085d0b7

The story's getting some traction. Can't imagine what all this is like for Camilla. The propaganda video she appeared in was meant more for in-house consumption. Although it was posted publicly on Youtube, it appeared on a Japanese channel, and I'm sure that was to try to avoid it reaching a wider audience. A lot of their social media sites are not easily tied to the cult unless you have rather intimiate knowledge of their fronts and members.

The Daily Mail published as well, combining their new piece with parts and photos from their earlier piece published in May 2016. They also included Camilla's segment from a recent JMS propaganda video.

Here's that video:


A former member takes a look at that video here. I have been meaning to transcribe it all and comment on it further. Hope to do that soon. I wasn't bothered by the parts about me. Just your typical pathetic attempts by a cult to defend itself from the reality. I was tempted to just ignore it, but I think there are some aspects in it worth exploring and noting.

A few more places the story popped up:
