According to the police department in Yongin, back on January 31, an 11-year old boy was found unconscious on top of a flower bed in an apartment complex in Yongin, Seoul.


He was immediately rushed to the hospital, however, he was later pronounced dead.


A witness claimed, "I heard a loud 'thud' noise so I went ahead with the security officer and found the boy laying there." 


It was revealed that the boy jumped from his study room balcony located at the top of the 10-story building.  No suicide note was found.


Police personnel stated that the boy had an argument with his mother about his school grades.  His mother then left the room after telling her son to, "think about it."  Causing the boy to take action shortly afterward, jumping to his death.


Meanwhile, the police are currently investigating the case.

    That's sad but it seems pretty realist... Some parents give a lot of pressure to their children and they don't know it... Sometimes, they really should relax a bit!! Too much pressure is always bad!! SK's society is really competitive, so this kind of cases could happen... RIP little boy and fighting for the family!

    It's a big deal in asian countries though, this is often the case in countries like korea, japan, china and singapore, where the workload is ridiculous and suicide rates are pretty high for students.....is also the reason I moved countries

    Usually it's not just over 1 argument. These things pile up and people take extreme measures when they couldn't handle it anymore.

    the pressure these students get is incredible. their life is literally school and grades. they HAVE to be the best, that's literally all that's driven in their minds for their whole lives. the pressure is enormous and the parents and teachers push their kids to their breaking point. you don't understand how crazy the pressure is for asian students in korea, japan, and china, and probably other asian countries as well.

    Elementary school kids (age 10) are usually in school from 8:30am to 2:30pm ish, and attend after school classes or clubs, or academies. Some don't come home until 8pm or later.

    When I was in elementary it was wake up at 6:30, get to school at 7:30, school ends at 3, then about 70% of students took supplementary classes till 6, got home at 7, did homework till 9, then slept at 10....and this was for 3rd grade....

    That sucks! My province (Chungbuk), we didn't start til later. Kids usually were at school around 8:30-40. I often walked in to school at the same time as my students.

    I think the mother should be investigated. I am sure this isn't the first time the mother abused her son. But is it worth it?
