A 47-year-old Korean Chinese (ethnically Korean, Chinese citizen) man has been sentenced to prison time for killing a man 19 years ago. 


19 years ago, the man, surnamed Kang, killed a female owner of a bar and ran away to China. He had illegally entered Korea in 1997 and killed the victim while causing a disturbance in a drunken state. Kang killed the victim by stabbing her multiple times.

To avoid getting caught with the murder, Kang reported himself as an illegal immigrant to authorities and was kicked out of the country. However, in 2003, Kang illegally re-entered Korea and continued to live there. Then this year in July, Kang shared the story of the killing while drunk, saying, "I once killed a Korean person," with the people who were drinking with him. The people who were with him stated that Kang seemed to boast about it. Kang was arrested shortly after one of the people informed the police. 


On December 9, the Ahnyang Court sentenced Kang to 13 years in prison. The court explained the sentencing by saying that Kang's crime was not premeditated and that he had no prior record of any similar crimes.

    while in our country he would most likely avoid being caught at all, no one would listen even if someone report him (or person who reports would go to jail, as it happens) and even  if he was caught he would get 1-2 years maximum. nice

    so, he did know he killed a person while intoxicated. how can he live 19 years pretending everything was okay, and spilled all his dirty secret, again while intoxicated.

    Lee Jae Han and his walkie talkie are at it again. This would be a good opener for Signal 2.

    i think when people dont have homes and are in foreign territories they have less to lose, and do not play by local rules. usually desperation makes people do unlawful things and not having to be accounted for makes doing those things easier.

    I'm sure that for some people that is the case; however, the generalization that you made was really offensive for many different people. Murder doesn't happen because of displacement, it happens because of people, that guy had problems, and that was how he chose to deal with them.

    so you do not think what i said is a factor at all in this crime? much less any other illegals/refugee crime? obviously i dont mean all or even most, or else i would've said most, but i do think it happens often enough where countries are weary of illegals/refugee's for the reasons i cited.

    I don't think it factors in to why he killed, rather why he got away. But even then, any citizen could've caught a plane out, too. I wonder if illegal immigrants often reported themselves 19 years ago? If not, it was a massive oversight by the police - but then, maybe they hadn't found the deceased yet. I suppose it's not that simple anyway

    He's a murderer who was also an illegal and not a murderer BECAUSE he was an illegal.

    Idk where you're from, but maybe because I was born and raised in California, USA where it's very diverse and where there are a lot of illegals, that doesn't seem like a valid reason for why someone (19 years ago) committed murder. It's like what michinpabo said, he was a murderer who was also an illegal, he wasn't a murderer because he was an illegal.
