Extra! Korea

Don’t you just hate it when you accidentally kill the wrong manager?

Filed under: crime, idiots, What the hell?! — extrakorea @ 2:31 pm

A man was paid 3 million won instead of the promised 5 million by his manager, leading to an argument and a scuffle. The man left, but later returned. His manager wasn’t there, so what did he do? He “accidentally” stabbed to death another manager who worked in the same office.

He told the police that he suddenly got upset and stabbed the team manager in a fit of anger. He also said the absent executive always looked down on him, which caused his frustration to grow over a long period of time.

“My job is very stressful. I was upset. You must understand me.”

I wonder if that would work if I killed my ex-hogwon boss. Probably not.

The police requested the prosecution file for an arrest warrant.

They didn’t arrest him?!

  1. They didn’t arrest him?!

    I think they’re referring to something they have to formally file even after someone is in custody.

    People translating or referring to stories involving encounters with the police often conflate “detain” and “arrest.” It appears that Metropolitician, for example, was not arrested but detained, his description notwithstanding.
