Koreans Try To Bar Michael Jackson

A civic group wants to prevent Michael Jackson from performing in South Korea because of child molestation allegations against him.

“Bringing (here) a man who has been accused of molesting children is diametrically opposed to public sensibilities,” the Council for the Movement for the Reform of Communal Society said in a letter to the government today.

Foreigners require government permission to perform in South Korea. The Sports and Culture Ministry has given preliminary authorization to a Jackson concert.

The council, which claims 150,000 members nationwide, said it will hold a signature drive and street demonstrations to force the government to back down.
