Articles about the rape-murder of 10-year-old Han Ah-reum, and criticism of Korea's rape law and sex offender registry:

Korea's sex offender registry list is currently managed by two government organizations with separate lists depending on whether the victim was a youth or adult. The laws were enacted recently and are not retroactive, so only those who have recently been convicted of rape or sexual assault are required to register.
