While the Korean Subway Gropers' Alliance has been aiming for affiliation with the Korean Association of Sex Attackers, its application has been denied for two consecutive years.
"Subway groping isn't even violent," explained Lee Byun-Tae, public relations representative for the KASA. "We've debated it every year - given the huge number of Subway Gropers, it would certainly improve our numbers and dues collection, but in the end, we're afraid that mere groping will water down the violent and intimidating image we want to convey."
