SBS talk show host and former news anchor Kim Sung-joon on Monday resigned over an upskirting scandal.
Police caught Kim red-handed when he secretly took pictures inside a woman's skirt at a subway station in Seoul late at night on July 3.
The veteran journalist first denied the charges. But when police confronted him with pictures found on his phone, he admitted them saying he is keen "on taking pictures and made a mistake while heavily drunk." He added he is "terribly sorry."
Kim presented SBS' main evening news from 1991 to 2017 before hosting a radio talk show in recent years.
