“Hard to conclude that the content is inaccurate…” Netflix’s Korean documentary that went to court, is released today (Mar 3)
The Netflix documentary “In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal” will be released today (March 3rd) as scheduled.
On March 2nd, the 21st Civil Settlement Division of the Seoul Western District Court (Chief Judge Lim Jung Yup) dismissed all applications for injunction against broadcasting by the Christian Gospel Mission (JMS) against MBC and Netflix.
Previously, the Christian Gospel Mission (JMS) filed an application for an injunction to ban broadcasting, claiming that the content covered in Netflix’s new documentary “In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal” was false.
“In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal” is a Netflix documentary series that tracks the “messiahs” in modern Korean history and the events and people behind them.
It consists of 8 episodes talking about 4 people who call themselves gods, including JMS leader Jung Myung Seok. It consists of episodes such as “JMS, Brides of God”, “Five Oceans”, “32 Corpses and Gods”, “Children’s Garden”, “Finding Paradise”, and “The Man Who Became the God of All People”.
In this regard, the judge said, “It seems that Netflix and others collected a considerable amount of objective and subjective data and organized the program based on it.” difficult. It is difficult to conclude that the main contents related to JMS are not true only with the data submitted by JMS.”
Accordingly, “In the Name of God: A Holy Betrayal” will be released in 241 countries at 5 pm KST on March 3rd (today) as originally scheduled.
Meanwhile, Jung Myung Seok was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually assaulting a believer in 2009 and served his sentence. In October of last year, he was arrested on charges of molesting a foreign believer and is on trial.
