People are understandably baffled and left speechless after the horrific murder of a young woman in the bathroom at the hands of a 34-year-old man she did not know. His motive for the vicious murder, done through multiple stabbings, was that he was tired of always being disregarded by women.
Celebs have found their words to state their opinions on this matter. 2PM's Chansung wrote, "1. I don't know what to say.. That is really low. Would he have done that if it were a man like he? What ignited fire to his motive for doing something like that was a woman, that is why. It was the choice that made it a premeditated incident. I hope that he will properly feel with bitter regret what his decision caused.. 2. Also, while this instance is his personal problem, I do believe that this shows a problem with our society. It makes me think that amongst ourselves, there's someone like that, someone casually mingling with us."
He also re-tweeted a post by poet Ha Sang Wook, who wrote, "I saw his words 'I was disregarded by a woman' as 'I was even disregarded by a woman.' He says he was disregarded, but actually he was the one who doing the disregarding, so he did not want to hold back regarding women. He says it was hate, but in truth, it was discrimination."
KittiB posted a picture of a post-it at the Gangnam Station in remembrance of the victim. The post-it reads, "I am you. Your death will soon be my death." Her Instagram comment reads, "Rest in peace."
Actress Kang Ye Won took a general picture of the post-its at Gangnam station and wrote on Instagram, "How could something like this ... Although the victim is one woman and the criminal is one man, all of us could become victims, so to dismiss this problem as a personal one is too great of an issue. Rest in peace."
1. 뭐라고 말을 해야할까.. 정말 저열하다. 같은 남자였다면 그랬을까? 그 행동을 할 수 있게 만든 동기의 점화선에 불이 붙은 건 여자였기 때문이다. 우발적 사고가 아닌 선택이었다. 본인의 선택이 어떤 결과를 초래하는지 제대로 뼈저리게 느꼈으면..— 황찬성 (@2PMagreement211) May 19, 2016
2. 그리고 이 사건은 그 개인의 문제이기도 하지만 우리 사회가 갖고 있는 문제를 보여준다고 생각한다. 우리들 중에 저런 사람도 있다고, 자연스럽게 우리들과 어울리고 있을 거라는 생각이 든다.— 황찬성 (@2PMagreement211) May 19, 2016
"여자에게 무시 당했다"라는 말이 "여자에게까지 무시 당했다"로 보였다. 무시 당했다고 말하지만, 사실은 자기가 무시하고 있었기 때문에 여자에 대해서는 참기 싫었겠지. 혐오했다고 말하지만, 사실은 차별하고 있던 거겠지.— 하상욱 (@TYPE4GRAPHIC) May 19, 2016
