Mangate: Prestigious University Student Urinates On Subway Seat

From News1:

A picture of a man urinating on the Seoul Metro is going viral. A picture titled ‘Metro Piss Man‘ was uploaded recently.


In the picture, a man donning a Yonsei-crest jacket is seen urinating on a metro seat. The behavior of prestigious private university students have been under scrutiny as was evidenced by the denigration of disabled people involving students from the Special Cares Faculty from X University [during a ‘group dating’ session, students from the Special Cares Department were asked to ‘do their favorite disability’], and this photo is sure to fan the flame.

Seoul Metro has confirmed that the photo was likely to have been taken on the Metro Line 2, adding that they do not attempt to confirm the identity of the individual.

Many netizens reacted with varying degrees of puzzlement, disgust and sympathy as the freshers MT week rumbles on.

Comments from Naver:


You went nuts! Time to revive the Samchung Correctional Facility, tsk tsk.


ke ke ke ke ke ke people around him must have been embarrassed… I want to see with no image blurring…


Korea University students LIKE this article [Korea University being the so-called ‘rival’ of Yonsei]


Studying is NOT everything, Mr. Yonsei student.


Obviously a Jeolla-dion, Hong-o for sure, obvious as daylight tsk tsk


Sure he is not an Ilbe-bug?????????? So dirty, why are men like this???


Still better to be a Yonsei-piss man. Jijab-dae people have no right to give him tongue-lashing.


Yonsei University level??????


A rumor on the street says that he is an OU user….


From the look of his jacket he is from Yonsei. I go to Seoul University by the way. Yonsei people are so thick ke. This kind of behavior is very consistent with them.




Yay, Ilbe did it again! I cannot but have pride over Ilbe because of this. Reporter guy, you on Ilbe too?

      **pause** why are you so eager to see another man’s junk for?

      • …I think they meant his face since his face is blurred. And what if this person is attracted to guys?

  • PixelPulse

    Still isnt as bad as that one time I saw someone take a shit on a subway seat.

    • Brett

      My friend had a Facebook news feed update about seeing the same thing on the NYC metro last week. I didn’t believe it then, but maybe these instances aren’t so rare.

      • Elf Queen

        Believe me,unfortunately it is not rare in NY. Stench alone could kill anyone not from the city.

      • PixelPulse

        It happened on the NYC metro too, Im thinking theres a strong connection here.

    “prestigious” Yonsei. Only in Korea. That’s like calling Beida prestigious.

    • Sillian

      Yonsei is ‘prestigious’ in Korea. Beida is ‘prestigious’ in China. In a sense that you need to perform very well academically to get in those schools and you can build a good alumni network in the country.

      • Brett

        I know, I know. Let us all drop our standards because it hurts someone’s feelings. The only thing those schools are good for is being an alumni. Everyone knows what a joke they are in real life. No one outside of Korea knows what “Yonsei” is. It’s a “thingamajig”, right? BTW, I’m getting my masters there now, haha. It doesn’t bother me in the least that the degree doesn’t mean much outside of Korea. I’m using it as a chance to learn, not career advancement.

        • Sillian

          Lol I don’t even know all top 50 universities in the world that are commonly picked in those rankings. What do you study? Why did you choose Yonsei over SNU, etc?

          • Brett

            Right now I’m in the middle of a part-time business degree. They call it “corporate MBA”, but it’s funny you mention it, I want to switch to SNU’s “Agricultural Economics” degree.

            The new business I want to open has to do with agriculture in the city.

          • Sillian

            Oh you wanna run a business. Good luck whatever you plan to do ;)

          • Luna

            Just because the majority of people outside of Korea don’t know what Yonsei is, doesn’t mean it’s not prestigious.

          • Alex _

            Not even SNU is prestigious, its only 85 in THE ranking.

  • One for all

    EVERY station has toilets, on average 150m from the tracks…..the average journey time between stations in Seoul is 30-40 seconds…..this idiot couldn’t wait a grand total of 2 minutes to get to the nearest toilet?!?!?

    • Elf Queen

      He was very obviously drunk or challenged.

  • 5000 years of history
    oh wait, wrong blog….

  • commander

    First-year university students should remain persuaded that drinking binges in the early days of university life that come out of a sense of liberation from fierce competition for college admission should be distinguished from unbridled debauchery which often produces embarrassing, awful drunken mistakes haunting as a mockery the rest of their lives, as the inebriated freshman in the picture that urinated inside a subway carriage will definitely suffer.

  • Pumpkin

    ugh. disgusting. why didn’t they blur the urine on the seat? We don’t want to see that. sick…

  • Jang

    The kid probably has a drinking problem. If a native English teacher(Kyopo) had pissed on the subway it would’ve been all over front page headline newspapers/TV news calling on E-2 teachers to be tested for alcoholism-like that’s even possible.

  • Strelnikov

    Let’s be ruthlessly mean; the college should beat the student with a rattan stick for making it lose face. If they could identify him in the first place.
