In August 2017, a man in his 30s was charged for filming women at open-air bath in Jeju Island, in South Korea. The police made a discovery after one of the victims reported a drone floating near the beach.

There have been more cases of “drone voyeur” filming reported to the police. The voyeur drones have been spotted infringing on private spaces, including a changing room and a pool villa. As a drone can be operated from afar, the police have been largely unsuccessful in rounding up the culprits behind the voyeur drones reported. The police are using wireless radars and other devices to identify and locate drones used for illegitimate purposes.

Whether for fun or out of pure curiosity, secret filming is a serious crime subject to up to five years in prison or a 10 million won ($8,800) fine, the police said.
