Park Seong-ho, 16, is alleged to have used Facebook to befriend and force underaged Korean girls to send him erotic photos and videos.
He then edited clips and uploaded them to multiple porn sites to make money.
After pictures of their children surfaced online, the victims' parents proceeded to press charges, but Park had already left South Korea.
Park was put on Interpol's wanted list in July 2021.
In November 2021, after receiving information from the Department of Foreign Relations that Park was allegedly hiding in Vietnam, the Ministry of Public Security's Warrant Office asked police officers to find and arrest the teenager.
Police found and arrested Park on December 19 while he was visiting his parents in HCM City.
Park entered Vietnam with his parents in 2017 and since his warrant was put out had been moving constantly in southern provinces to evade capture, but still occasionally returned to his parents' apartment in HCM City to visit them.
Park was handed over to South Korean Police on December 21.
