In light of all the Ladygates, koreaBANG is happy to finally present its first Mangate.

Metro Assault Man slaps Station Attendant for his Invalid Ticket.

Footage of a man appearing to assault a station attendant has emerged attracting netizen criticism.

A 1.16 minute video titled ‘Station Staff Assault Man’ was uploaded onto video streaming site, YouTube on the 23rd.

The video contributor explained, ‘This happened on the 23rd at around 9 in the evening. The employee is really incredible, enduring even whilst being hit.’ The station in the video is assumed to be in Daegu.

The man objects to the station staff member when his travel card fails to behave normally at the ticket gate. He rains abuse in an aggressive tone leading the station employee to respond, ‘Don’t swear.’ The man then replies, ‘this jerk…’ and strikes the station staff on the cheek. Despite being hit the station employee makes an effort to make the man understand the situation.

Even so, the man loudly scolds the station staff with a number of expletives, ‘XX bastard etc.

Various reactions judging the man who struck the station employee can be seen, ‘Why did he hit him?’, ‘We should catch and punish him legally.’, ‘Station staff have a lot of hardships.’, ‘The station employee handled it well. That man should fix his behaviour.’ And so on.

That guy
Swears at waiters if he goes to a restaurant,
Swears at the bus driver if he rides the bus,
Swears at the shop attendants when he goes clothes shopping,
And probably swears at his kids when he goes home.


He [probably] even swears at his parents. When he’s old maybe he’ll be sweared at and beaten by his own kids.


He doesn’t seem very patient.


That’s not acceptable, make him recognise his mistakes~!


That person really needs to recognise [his mistake] and change. Changing him would be really difficult…


The wife of the station employee will cry when she sees this…


Who is this…I want to know…Where does his live, how old is he? I want to know his identity…I want to see him once…how can I see him…how is his family? Why does he hand his head…I want to know…


A kid like Lee Myung-Bak

Comments from YouTube:


I’m embarrassed that this is a true Korean –
