MOSCOW – A South Korean FIFA World Cup reporter who was grabbed and kissed by two Russian women on live TV has sparked a debate about sexual harassment.

Jeon Gwang-ryeol, a reporter for South Korean TV channel MBN, was delivering a report in Russia last week when a female Russian fan ran up to him and kissed him on the cheek.

Jeon continues to deliver his report, but another female Russian fan also runs up to him and kisses him on the cheek as can be seen in the video.

He looked flustered and laughed off what happened, but nonetheless, got the Internet arguing over whether this could be categorised as sexual harassment or not.

Earlier, a DW reporter was sexually harassed while covering the FIFA WorldCup. She was kissed, groped by a man while reporting from Moscow.
