Recruiters are known to be active in and around shopping centres and university campuses and are said to target tall, attractive women to become spiritual brides for the leader.

Once they are inducted, new members are then encouraged to sever ties with friends and family and to live in a communal house with other members.

It has been reported that female recruits were encouraged to have sex with Jeong in order to attain purification.

In 1999, Jeong was accused of rape and fled South Korea. He was later charged with multiple counts of rape and in 2009, sentenced to 10 years in prison. His followers say he has been falsely accused.

He is due to be released on parole in early 2018.
