I always like to joke about how adults in Korea will scold random teens in the street. But damn, this is pretty serious. A family man in his 30s saw this 16-year old spit on the floor and he decided to have some words with him.
Younger Kim (16) became outraged right after he was scolded by Mr. Kim, and started to beat him up. As the fight went on for too long, Shin (20), who was passing by, intervened and tried to alleviated the tension between two Kims. However, Shin’s attempt now led the fight to move between Mr. Kim and himself.
Younger Kim who watched this happen in turn tried to reduce the tension between Shin and Mr. Kim, but Mr. Kim ended up punching younger Kim in the face. Younger Kim became outraged again and beat Mr. Kim by kicking him. Mr. Kim fell backwards and hit his head on the asphalt ground.
Police officers were dispatched to the site who then called 119 emergency services to rush Mr. Kim to the local university hospital, but he was later diagnosed with a cerebral haemorrhage. Though treated with 8 hours of surgery, Mr. Kim ended up dying after 6 days.
Obviously this kid was in the wrong for getting violent here (mad uncalled for) but we don’t know how the guy approached him. Maybe he was being a little harsh in sonning him? The reason I say that is because look at how the shit escalates between him and the passerby Shin who tried to break the fight up. Then he punches the other kid in the face again? As a Korean, I get the whole ‘we gotta do our part and raise the youth together’ thing but as an American, I also see how these older cats be flexing a little unnecessarily sometimes. Either way, the shit is tragic because this dude died for no good reason, in front of his 6-year old son! Fuck.
