The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) announced on September 23 that they have arrested a 33-year-old woman identified by her surname Yoo for causing property damage at an ENT clinic (otolaryngologist) using a hammer.

Yoo underwent a surgical procedure on her nose at an unnamed ENT clinic last April to alleviate symptoms of her rhinitis and fix the deviation of her naval septum. However, the procedure involved some complications, resulting in side effects such as the sinking of the skin surrounding her nose. 

Yoo visited the same clinic again in December of the same year to undergo yet another procedure to repair the problem area; unfortunately, Yoo's symptoms only grew worse, forming bloody pus wells in her nostrils, and she was officially deemed to be at a "level 5" of disability.

According to police, Yoo went back to the clinic, located in Gangnam District, this past September 22 around 6:25 p.m. with a hammer in hand. Furious at the thought that the clinic's botched work on her nose ruined her life, Yoo smashed all the glass walls of the clinic. 

Though the clinic admitted fault, they stated that Yoo had received a plastic surgery procedure at a different clinic and that she had demanded an unreasonably excessive amount for settlement. 

Police have booked Yoo without detention and are looking into penalties for destruction of property.

the money she use to repay the damage can be used to sue the hospital, and if she win, the case, she might get cash back plus bonus of settlement money

instead of wreaking havoc and being at risk of going to jail, she should have just sued them.

"naval septum" already made me wonder whether this was about some kind of warship or something, and the next sentence then mentions something "sinking"... i just couldn't continue reading after that...

But more seriously.. I hope that clinic will be checked for malpractice because botched ops shouldn't happen, and she should be compensated for the damage they caused on her. Seems like she took matters in her own hands though, probably lost patience? Eye for an eye and all... don't think that was the wisest move.

The clinic admitted fault and was happy to settle with her. The problem was that she had another surgery elsewhere that made her condition worse and she wanted the first clinic to compensate her for that. It looks like she's going to need her entire nose rebuilt. I don't how she can breathe out of those nostrils but it also looks like she wasn't taking care of it either.

I'd go off on them too if that happened to me

k_kid Friday, September 23, 2016

I don't blame her. I'd be pissed off as well.
