University Students Graffiti Nat’l Assembly, Say It Was For Homework
Seoul Yeongdeungpo Police have charged but not detained Moon (25) and Kim (22) for illegally entering the National Assembly and marking the building with graffiti. [The official charge is] trespassing in a public building and damage to a public object.
According to the police, at 5:55 p.m., Moon [and Kim] used black paint to graffiti “I hate you” on a column near the rear entrance of the main National Assembly building in Yeouido.
The two slipped in through the southern entrance at 5:20 p.m., and encountered no resistance. After the crime was committed, they were caught at the scene by a situation room employee and a riot police officer patrolling the area.
Moon and Kim are current students at a university in Seoul . In the police report, they stated that, “We had an assignment to make a video advertisement expressing freedom that was out-of-the-ordinary. So we wrote that and were going to take a video of it. We didn’t know it was a crime.
Comments from Naver:
Well, you said the right thing.
That’s evidence so it can’t be erased, right?
The students didn’t do this for any .. righteous reason… but they did a good job. Delightful.
Even though serious, it’s a breath of fresh air.
Awesome ~ cute ~
The lowest grade they could get is an A+
If it were me, I’d give them an A+. Good riddance!
Those students really sucked it up and didn’t cuss.
It’s freedom of expression~
Sigh… It’s the truth so they get hauled off kekeke
kekeke What even is that kekeke Professor, you must give my friends an A+. It’s only humane.
It’s fortunate there wasn’t any cursing. Those fucking congresspeople kekeke
They really deserve a prize.
They speak for the people.
They didn’t even curse.
If these kids had any common sense, they probably wouldn’t have done it. But I think they did a good job considering the way those fucking congresspeople talk.
It’d be nice if their professor gave them an A+
40 million Koreans demand their charges be revoked.
I wanna write that on those congresspeople’s faces. Go fuck yourselves.
