A 30-year-old man with the surname Park, who poured gasoline on his friend and set him on fire, has been arrested. The man and the victim were said to be close friends. So why did this happen? 


Park and the victim, a 32-year-old man, had known each other for 8 years; they were from the same town, worked in the same company, and even roomed together in the company dorm. 


SEE ALSO: Chung Yoora (Choi Soon Sil's daughter) caused an idol to cry and transfer schools


However, when Park learned that his roommate started to date a woman Park had been having a crush on for the last three months, Park decided to get his revenge. 


On the night of November 28, Park called out his friend for a drink. When the friend showed up, Park poured gasoline on him and then set him on fire. 


The victim stated, "He set a lighter on my clothes, and the fire started immediately. I couldn't do anything...The fire just lit at once. I wanted to scream, but I couldn't." 


The victim suffered from second-degree burns on his face and his hands 


Police reported that Park said during a police interview that he wanted to kill his friend.

    All the idiot had to do was tell the girl he liked her and see if she liked him back. But no this dummy wanted to set a good friend on fire for doing something he couldn't muster up the courage to do. He should rot in jail forever.

    No matter what happens to the attacker, he has essentially won in a way. Even though the poor victim only suffered second degree burns, he's done. From the bandaging, it looks like he'll have scarring on his face as well as other parts of his body- and the way Korea discriminates based on how you look, it's now going to be an uphill battle for him for the rest of his natural life. Dating will be difficult, he'll more than likely be treated differently at work, everything will be a challenge for him now because of his looks. All because his roommate was a petty, insecure little person who couldn't handle the fact that the woman he liked didn't like him the same way. I know some people may think me cruel for saying these things, but that is legit how it is over there. This poor young man has his whole life ahead of him, and now it will be a constant struggle, and the scars will be a daily reminder of what has been taken from him. I hope that he will have a strong support system to help him heal both physically and mentally, because this will be a lifelong struggle.

    The attacker has NOT won anything but the contempt of people who know what he has done. How dare you say that the victims life is over! Just because some people judge based on looks does not mean every single person does. So what if he has some scarring, he is still alive and that is what matters. I hate the way people judge the Korean population based on what they see online.

    I judge it because I've LIVED THERE, I have friends and colleagues who live there presently and who have lived there in prior times. So don't dictate to me what I do or don't know about the culture and the way people act, the only one judging things based on the little information they have on the internet is you. Furthermore, I don't begrudge this poor victim- he has been through an EXTREMELY traumatic event, one that is going to follow him forever. On top of his physical scarring, the mental and emotional scarring is something that worries me even more. Things like depression, anxiety, PTSD are all possibilities for him now based on what he's been through. And whether you like it or not, the judgement and standards of looks in Korea is HIGH and well-accounted for, both in peoples everyday lives as well as where they work. Why do you think the plastic surgery business is so high over there, why high schoolers are asking for double-eyelid surgery as gifts for doing well on their end-of-the-year exams, why skin-care is a seemingly endless and booming profit for them, especially when it comes to exports (aside from the K-pop/K-drama industry of course)? This is the reality over there, and while I'm not saying this poor young man is going to be tarred, feathered and shunned by the general public, they're most definitely going to treat him differently, and that freaking sucks! I have incredibly sympathy for this young man, because he's already going to have a tough enough time dealing with his basic treatment and recovery, on top of the fact that people will in fact treat him differently based on the way he looks. Not saying the Korean citizens are bad people, but it's a stigma over there, whether people like you want to admit/like it or not.

    Furthermore, while I understand that saying someone 'is done' may sound cold and unfeeling, that's the reality. That's not to say that he can't go on to have a successful and fulfilling life, a good job, a loving significant other and family. Those are all still possible for him, anything is possible in life because life is random chance. But the fact is, due to the stigma over there, he's sadly going to have to work a lot harder for it because of what his former friend and roommate did to him. His attacker wanted him dead, but in a sick way he did get a twisted and horrible revenge, because his handiwork will be written on this young man's body, mind and heart forever now.

    People like me? People who find it offensive to read that you think having burn scarring has ended this guys life? Oh yeah people like me really suck. Your whole point could have been made without the need to say his life was over. Burn survivors are exactly that SURVIVORS if their lives were over they would be dead. The *friend* tried to kill him if he had succeeded then I would agree that he had won but he didn't so I will say again he has won nothing.

    There's no point in talking to a wall, especially when you pick and choose what you'd like to respond to from my entire comment. I'm only responsible for what I say (ALL of what I say) not what you pick and choose to understand. I'll quote you from your own profile "Ugh so fed up people getting offended by everything, seriously how do these people function in real life." I've said my piece and counted to three.

    Final thought: you continue to read way to much into my choice of words for him being 'done'. You so badly want to make it something that it's not- I never said his life was ended, YOU DID. I was specifically referring to his chance for potential and achieving certain goals will be incredibly difficult due to the stigma over there. But feel free to twist my words all you want, it's your right and privilege as a keyboard warrior.

    Regardless of your sentiments, I still wish you the best if in fact you have suffered from the aforementioned burns you claim. It's important to be able to hold dialogues with an open mind and heart with others, especially when their experiences differ from your own. Attempting to shut others down, metaphorically plugging your own ears and refusing to reason with others does not make your own truth any more receptive to others- it just puts you on your own miserable island.

    Yes he won a free ticket to jail. Congrats. Plus this guy that was burned can probably still get surgery for his scars.

    I agree, and I hope that he will be able to heal as best he can. But it sounds like the burns were still fairly severe, which makes me worry for him. I know the cosmetic procedures and surgeries over there are pretty top notch, but there's still only so much they can do, including for the face. I'll always wish him and anyone who goes through something like this the very best, but more than likely he'll still have some pretty bad and noticeable scarring.

    Man, this is totally fucked up, it really is.  I simply wanna know why most men across South Korea can't learn how to keep their cool all the time and not take things seriously all the damn time.  And by the way, i'm happy that the victim is doing just fine and only has suffered from second degree burns.  And therefore, if i'm in this kind of situation right here, I would let my friend date the woman and go out and find a new woman for me to date.  And one more thing, I absolutely hope that the man who's behind this despicable act has learned his lesson and is vowing to NEVER EVER EVER do anything like this ever again in his whole entire life.  It's just highly inexcusable on just so many levels.

    But that's the point and endless cycle of trolls- they want attention and have absolutely no intention of changing their views and actions. So you responding and "giving him a piece of your mind" will never change him/her, you're only giving the troll exactly what they want- attention.
