A South Korean influencer, who goes by the name Ohsevely, was recently in Taiwan for a trip when she encountered a distressing incident.
While livestreaming her rickshaw ride in New Taipei City on June 2, she was trailed by a man on a red motorcycle who then reached to grope her thigh.
The video was reposted by TikTok user ifenglobal, racking up more 187,000 views and 4,000 comments.
In the video, Ohsevely is obviously distraught, repeating: “No, no, no, no. Don’t touch,” in English.

Man has been caught
According to Taiwanese media outlet Now News, the influencer was on the third day of her trip touring the Tamsui and Bali area when the incident occurred.
The man was apprehended by the police two hours after the stream.
Even though Ohsevely had not made a police report, they were alerted of the incident and made the arrest after reviewing the footage, as well as CCTV cameras on the route.
The culprit has been identified as a 29-year-old man surnamed “Chen”, who reportedly works in the funeral industry.
Did not wish to pursue the matter
In an Instagram post on June 7, Ohsevely addressed the incident in Korean and Chinese.
She said that she felt “panicked” during the ordeal but did not expect that the authorities would arrest the man so quickly, especially since she had not made a report.
Ohsevely has been in touch with Taiwan police and has expressed to them that she has no intention to press charges, and only wishes for her attacker to receive a warning.

She ended her post by saying that this is her third time in Taiwan, and has made many “fond memories” there.
Ohsevely also thanked the Taiwanese people for their concern, and said that she had received a lot of help from them during her trip.
Despite the ordeal, she still considers Taiwan a “safe place”.
She also added that she will not be accepting any media interviews as she is currently recovering from Covid-19.
Many commenters who appear to be Taiwanese have left supportive comments, expressing their apologies for what happened.
