Nexon's game 'Closers' voice actress was replaced by force

The game maker and publisher Nexon removed all voice recordings of the voice actress for the character Tina in the game "Closers." The online feminism community 메갈리아 (Megalia, which started as a forum for MERS Gallary) began a social funding campaign for legal support with a T-shirts saying "GIRLS Do Not Need A PRINCE" (https://tumblbug.com/mersgall4). After the actress tweeted a photo of these T-shirts (https://twitter.com/KNKNOKU/status/754982063258734593), some men called to cancel her funding or threatened her. When she refused, they claimed the game maker she participated. Nexon removed all recordings of her voice. This was the beginning of censorship against female creators. After this case, similar cases occurred. We call it "일러레 사상 검증 사건." It is a kind of game maker’s blacklist about illustrator.
