Netizens Disgusted as Student Urinates on Classmate’s Face

A shocking school violence incident has once again revealed the difficulties facing victims of bullying and the prejudice of the Korean internet. After a high school student in South Jeolla Province urinated on a classmates face, the school has been criticized for being slow to address the problem and unwilling to investigate the seriousness of bullying within its walls. The fact that the incident occurred in Jeolla added to the disgust from conservative netizens, who tend to associate the province with crazy left wing politics, brutality, and a lack of development.

Bullies urinate on a child’s face…delays in exposing schoolyard assault

South Jeolla Office of Education acknowledges seriousness of allegations and launches an inquiry.

[Gwangju] Reporter – Maeng Dae Hwan
High school seniors have sadistically assaulted a sophomore in a school dormitory in South Jeolla province, even going so far as to urinate on his face. The parents of the victim have complained that the school waited too long to inform them of the situation.

However, controversy remains over what facts were omitted when the assault was first reported to the regional supervisory institution, the South Jeolla Office of Education.

The Office of Education reported on the 15th that the assailant was Student A, an 18-year-old high school senior who resided in the school dormitory. Along with two other seniors, he assaulted Student B, a 17-year-old sophomore who lived in the same dormitory. From March until June, they stole Student B’s phone and forced him to run errands for them.

In April, Student A approached Student B while he was lying in his dormitory room and proceeded to urinate on his face.

Unable to stand the assaults, Student B recently revealed to his home room teacher what had happened to him. Within the past four days, the high school has established a School Assault Task Force. The three offending students, including Student A, have faced disciplinary action. They have all been suspended and will transfer schools.

However, controversy has erupted as neither the parents of the victim nor the South Jeolla Office of Education were informed of the urination incident.

The victim’s parents heard only that their child had been assaulted, and that the School Assault Task Force had taken disciplinary action against the offending students. They had agreed to put the matter to rest, but after learning of the incident they strongly protested.

The Office of Education was also in the dark regarding the details of the incident. On finding out the full facts, an inquiry was launched.

An individual connected with the South Jeolla Office of Education has clarified that “general harassment and urinating on somebody’s face constitute two different dimensions of violence. This is a serious matter, and an investigation is underway to establish the facts. Appropriate policy measures are being taken.”

An individual connected with the high school has said that “the School Assault Task force has confirmed that Student B had his face urinated on, and that this fact was not conveyed to the parents or the regional Office of Education. To prevent further assaults at the school, we have arranged for a teacher to reside in the dormitory along with the students.”

In addition to this latest incident, last month on the 27th the same high school suspended a senior student after he assaulted two freshmen in the dormitory. The reason given for the assault was that the freshmen ‘showed no manners’.

I checked where these rotten kids come from… Oh right, Gwangju…

Those kids should have to drink their own piss, that’ll make them come to their senses

The Student’s Rights Act? Whose rights are being protected? Start by shoving the Youth Protection Law in the garbage and getting rid of juvenile detention. Give youth criminals the same treatment as you would adults. In American juvenile detention the thing that has the biggest impact on youths is when they’re told that they will get thrown in with the adults. If you just say that one thing, they get scared and shape up.

nate****:

I clicked on this thinking ‘How could kids do something so cruel?’ now I get it, they’re from Jeolla…

orth****:

If underage kids mess up, then we shouldn’t protect them like we would other underage kids. We should treat them as adults. It would be good if there was a bill passed that punishes the parents. Even if you don’t want to spare the effort, you should have to teach your kid some manners. If a kid messes up it’s the fault of the parents, not the school.

bunn****:

There are many bad things happening all over the place, but jumping on the bandwagon and saying that they only happen in Jeolla? Jeolla? Really, stop with the regionalism. Thanks to your bitching, even people not bothered with regional attachment are put off from travelling to Jeolla, or they just start hating it. This is insane brainwashing. These days only incidents occurring in Jeolla get a lot of press. Even in the past there were other things occurring in other regions… you’re really hating on Jeolla. If you keep this up you saekkis, Jeolla and the rest of the country will be split like North and South Korea. If Jeolla is only full of bastards like this, then do only murderers live in Yongin? Only Ilbe bugs live in Daegu? Are you happy if we talk like that? We all share a small space so stop pointing fingers at each other!

sunj****:

Students! Do kids around you assault you or laugh while they regularly torment you?
Those kids are psychopaths. Because they have mental problems they get pleasure from inflicting torment on others, and they don’t know the fear of being assaulted. They are really lacking in emotional empathy to pain. Do not feel any kind of guilt toward this type of psychopath, just report them. These people need psychiatric help.

    “Doesn’t this belong in the foreign news section?”
    Where’s the “eye roll” emoticon when you need it? As if this kind of thing could only happen in other, uncivilised countries.

    • Sillian

      Calling Jeolla a foreign country is a common joke on Ilbe.

    • markus peg

      I think it was a joke to say, that part of Korea isn’t part of Korea.

      • chucky3176

        It’s a shot at Cheolla province which 90% of the voters vote for the left wing party in every election, no matter who the candidates or what the issues are. I think it’s the only state that has never had a conservative government in power. There’s a joke going around that they are commies by heart (North Korea). So you’re bang on.

        There’s also traditional stereotypes of Cheolla people as primitive gangsters and stupid ruffians. If you watch Korean gangster movies, the gangsters always have Cheolla province accents. Korea’s regionalism isn’t as bad as it used to be, but it’s still shows up few times, and especially come election times.

          uhm….. friend and nameless gangster?

        • bumfromkorea

          Considering the horrific shits Conservatives did to the people of those 2 provinces, and what the Conservatives are now saying about what they have done, can you blame the Choella province for not voting for them?

          Can’t shit where you eat.

    The best deterrent against recurring school violences is a kind of tit-for-tat approach that empower bullied students to do the same thing what they suffered to offending students.

    Applied to this repugnant case, the penalty should be for Studnet B to urinate on Student A’s face.

    Also necessary is to allow Student B to excrete on Student A if penalty proves not enough for th latter to rehabilitate.

    This sounding-primitive punishment will be more effective than any disciplinary actions taken against bullying students.

  • nqk123

    even if you lose, you still have stand your ground. once u back down, the bullying will go for a very long time

    • Cervello

      Are you referring to stand-your-ground law? xD

      • yondae

        Yea, cause if this was Florida, this story would be a whole lot more interesting.

  • lol

    Should’ve knocked him out and a took a shit on his face

  • lonetrey / Dan

    Why the delays? Seriously, what school would’ve NOT been gungho to make an example out of a bully?!

    Makes me feel like they’re protecting the bully a little…

    • Bingbang

      It’s a problem in most schools in Korea. They let the problem fester until its too late, or they pretend to not see/hear anything. I guess it is pretty similar to what’s happening in the States too. (ref. Sandusky, Steubenville, Saratoga)

      • lonetrey / Dan

        I suppose you’re right. I actually was at the school campus where the Sandusky incident happened.

      • kpopwillneverstop

        No. The difference between this and Sandusky is that Sandusky had very high reputation there as the football coach that no one would even think that he would do sick shit like that and as a result, people didn’t believe the first boy that came out about the molesting until a few more boys came out of the dark and expose him.

    • commander

      The school’s slow or relutanct response need brief explanation.

      In my assessment, Korean education is at a crossroads.

      Since educational policy chiefs started to be elected by residents, changes have been made toward reducing teachers powers in corporal punishment and granting more freedom to students at schools–changes that liberals champion but conservatives lash out as a move to cause indiscipline at a time when students never fail to pull out their smartphones to film any abusive behavior and words from teachers.

      Teachers respond to remain aloof from students unless they make serious troubles.

      This detached attitudes have been reinforced after a series of news have broken out that some students assaulted teachers or passing adults after they were told to stop smoking on the streets or other misdeeds.

      The shocking incident came as a growing number of teachers think all they can do is give a lecture, and appear to give up the traditional role of guiding students to grow up a better person.

      The shockinn school bullying came as the nation is seeking to find the best balance in relations between teachers and students.

      • lonetrey / Dan

        I feel like telling students not to smoke on school property or if they’re obviously underage are examples of situations where the teacher should intervene.

        The students assaulting the teachers was not wrong on the teacher’s part, it’s the students that should’ve been made an example of.

        I understand trying to find a balance between meddling and doing your teacher’s duty is hard but those are some obvious ones, aren’t they?

        • commander

          You’re right. Teachers should be grantedpowersto admonish, imposesome kinds of disciplinary actions on students for their misbehaviors, in addition to qualified teaching abilitie.

          But some students’ rebellious, violent behaviors challenge and threaten teachers’ abilities.

          As a result, some teachers, especially female ones, are afraid to tell students to stop wrong behaviors as some students are very intimidating as if they would doing something dangerous to them.

          Teachers-students bond has long disappeared. Violent students makes a mockert of society as a whole while students from affluentfamilieswho take costly private tutoring show sneers at teachers over their percieved under qualified teaching abilities.

          Education is losing its role of inspiring and awakening, planting dreamsin children.

  • YourSupremeCommander

    What’s the big deal? Some people are simply into kinky stuff like golden showers.

    • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

      Well much like pooping on someone, they need to approve of it before you place your bacteria-laden excrement on them. The receiver in question did not.

  • commander

    Jeolla Province people dont have to react to regional divide-instigating comments.
    Those who foments regional chasm with groundless generalizations that make readers question the intelligence of posters will be small-time guys who have nothing but plenty of time.

  • Ryan Kim

    Typical jeolla scum.

    My mom’s from Julla-do and yet my dad’s from Gyungsang-do. For some light humor here, why can’t we get along and attack Choongchung-do?
