She gave a detailed account of what happened, saying, At first, he sat next to me, saying Its cold, and grabbed my hand. I was suspicious, but he was a close acquaintance, so I smiled and said, Im cold too! Then the bus took off and he put his bag on my lap. I thought he was telling me to hold it for him, but he touched my thigh. I was extremely taken aback and confused, but my younger self couldnt say anything because I was scared that the other students in the bus would think Im strange. I was wearing my school uniform, and he touched my breasts over my uniform, and then he touched the inner part of my thigh. I was unable to say anything out of fear, and all I could do was press my legs together. Then Kang Dong Ho put his own leg on mine to force my legs apart. He started touching my thigh again and touched my genitals over the stockings I was wearing. He moved his hand up to my waist and put it inside my stockings to touch my genitals over my underwear, and then he put his hand inside my underwear and touched my genitals. When it was my turn to get off the bus, he waved his hand at me, smiling, and said Bye. I can still remember that moment clearly.
