A second review led to the reinstatement of the Korean Railway Corporation (KORAIL) employee who had unlawfully accessed RM’s personal information from BTS.
Democratic Party of Korea member Kim Du Gwan revealed the Korean Railway Corporation’s submission to the Central Labor Relations Commission for review on December 22. ‘A,’ who had been fired, was ordered by the Central Labor Commission to be reinstated and to be paid regular wages.
For three years beginning in 2019, ‘A,’ who oversaw IT development at KORAIL, unlawfully accessed RM’s personal data. Private information like addresses, phone numbers, and ticket purchases were included in this. Customer data should only be used for service processing purposes and not for non-business-related purposes, according to the Personal Information Protection Act.

During an internal audit, KORAIL discovered that ‘A’ had improper access. According to the results of the audit, ‘A’ looked at the personal information of other employees in addition to RM’s. In April, after the incident, ‘A’ was first let go.
The seriousness of the breach led to the denial of the employee’s request for a review of their dismissal. ‘A’ was later reinstated after the Central Labor Commission reversed the decision in response to an appeal.
