It’s not been an easy ride on the Seoul Metro’s Bundang line in recent months. Just as the commotion surrounding Cigarette Girl, Soju Girl and Beer Girl (who all turned out to be the same mentally-ill woman) had died down, the Korean internet is a-buzz with rumours of “Poo Girl” who, as her noble Ladygate (a series of Korean girls who are nicknamed by netizens using the suffix 女 [녀 -nyo] or “girl”) title suggests, allegedly defecated in the middle of a train carriage then quickly disappeared.
Netizens are quick to offer restraint and suggest that that woman is most likely mentally ill and there should therefore not be a witch hunt for the poor girl’s identity. Others once again offer dismay at how quick media circles were to offer the girl a Ladygate title.
More recent news suggests police are examining CCTV to piece together what actually happened.
Comments from Nate:
Witnesses say she seemed to be mentally ill and the minder with her also seemed to not be normal. Let’s not blame her too harshly. She could be mentally ill. To be frank, a normal person never be able to do that on the subway.
She is allegedly a female in her thirties. I doubt she is normal and I wonder if people around her were just looking at her doing it.
;; I feel sorry for the person who’s got to clean it all up……………………….
The characteristics of the Korean people:
1. Emotional and lacking in self-control.
2. Easily influenced by mob psychology.
3. Irrational and keen to instigate witch hunts for opponents.
4. Punish the ‘witch’ to death through vicious comments.
5. After finding out he or she was innocent, leave a message of consolation and pass his own guilt onto those who wrote the vicious comments.
6. On the internet, they themselves are police, prosecutors, and politicians
Damn, it is like a competition of crazy bitches on each line of the subway. What are you guys doing on the subway!? Is this the mainland [referring to China] or the Korean Peninsula?!
Think before you speak. Do you have any idea what mental illness is? You poor bastard, you would never be able to say these fucking things if you had a family member like her. Did you say she should be punished even though she’s mentally ill? Yeah, you did. Who wouldn’t say the right thing? I highly doubt you wouldn’t be able to say so if you go through it by yourself. Thinking that mental illness can be controlled, you’re the one that’s ill. It’s family members and especially parents who have to live with those who are mentally ill for the rest of their lives. I’m sure they will worry about their child till they die and even hardly be able to die in peace, thinking that other siblings might have to shoulder the burden instead of them. It must be sad beyond description and live as if they were guilty, giving birth to a mentally-ill child…If you knew how they really felt, you would never say these crazy things.
Hey let’s think about this rationally. You want to forgive a woman who just does a poo on the subway and disappears for being mentally illl? Very weird and generous of you. Imagine that a man with mental illness gets his penis out and pees on the subway. Girls, would you say ‘oh let’s forgive because he’s mad?’ Every Netizen here writes a comment at the risk of getting blamed [for being insensitive]. They must be all girls who say let’s forgive them for being mentally il. Let’s be rational please.
Just unbelievable people are still sitting there while poop and pee run in the middle of the subway. if i were there, i would have moved to another bench.
Too early to launch a witch hunt before we figure out if she’s as mentally ill as she seems to be…
I’m not sure if it she deserves such harsh ctiricism considering she was allegedly mentally ill. It is right that her carer should have cleaned it up but i heard that they seemed to not be normal as well… The fact that this happened is in itself is shocking, it doesn’t make any sense. And recently, whatever some bad female does, people downplay it by calling her something something ‘woman’ whilst ‘X’ was not named as something something ‘bastard’ and the guy who snatched cellphones was even called black spiderman or something. It seems that when it comes to women, people make the situation sound much worse.
Seems the Budang line is turning into a bit of a hellgate…
Since we don’t really know what happened, I hope people do not go on a witch hunt unless she is mentally ill, it is impossible to do so… in fact, it’s not too late calling her crazy after the truth is revealed.
Don’t lie. My girlfriend told me girls don’t do poos.
She might not be mentally… normal… ㅠㅠ
