Police are reinvestigating a spycam case allegedly involving a doctor at Seoul National University Hospital three years ago, the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency said.

A video of some nurses in a hospital dressing room was found recently on the internet. It was the same one that triggered the case in 2015.

The hospital union is asking police to quiz the doctor, who was a suspect three years ago but released for lack of evidence.

When caught, the doctor was doing alternative duty in lieu of military service in Gangwon Province.

He was confirmed to be working as a resident at the hospital when the video was taken, according to the union. He was found with over 20,000 videos, including the one taken in the dressing room, on his electronic devices.

Police said on Wednesday they plan to investigate first whether the doctor took the video.
