Domestic violence is any action or behaviour from a partner or spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend or family member that aims to control you. For some, this is physical violence, for others it takes the form of verbal, emotional, sexual or financial abuse.

If you are experiencing abuse or domestic violence, you do not have to deal with this on your own. Staff from 2 hotlines that support people experiencing abuse and domestic violence in South Korea can help. Contact them if these signs of abuse sound familiar:

  • Avoiding certain topics so that you don’t anger your partner/family member
  • Being exposed to intimidation and coercion
  • You feel threatened all the time
  • Feeling like you can’t do anything right for your partner/family member
  • Forcing you to use substances, lead an unhealthy lifestyle, or not take medication you need
  • Your partner/family member has an unpredictable, violent temperament, and they direct the anger at you
  • You are being isolated from friends and family members
