According to a recent 'Channel A' report, a man in his 20's set a multi-family building on fire when his girlfriend said she wanted to break up with him. 

28-year Ahn Chi Beom, who also lived in the building, sensed the fire and immediately proceeded to dial 119 (emergency services) and wake up everyone in the residence. 

Unfortunately, Ahn collapsed on the building's fifth floor after inhaling a lot of smoke and fumes. It has been over a week since the fire yet Ahn shows no signs of waking up after he collapsed. 

The incident reportedly occurred just two months after Ahn moved out of his parent's home to be close to his new workplace.

In the case that Ahn never regains his consciousness, his family is considering donating his organs. 

Netizens who chanced upon this report relayed their condolences, commenting, "As someone with still many years ahead of him, I sincerely hope that he wakes up," "I hope that he will wake up soon.." "So unfortunate...I dearly pray for him to please wake up soon!!" "We need to snatch the organs of the bastard who started the fire," and more.

I sincerely hope he's gonna wake up soon! He seems to be such a good man!! The other guy, on the other hand is hopeless... Break up is not the end of everything. He's not gonna die from it. Why put everyone in danger with his selfish act...

Why does such nice people have to meet such bad fate? I'm touched that he tried to help everyone instead of just leaving himself. He has to wake up :(

Your girlfriend wants to break up with you, okay. And you then proceed to set an entire building with happy families in it on fire? Wtf? Why don't you set yourself on fire?

HE IS WRONG for setting the building on fire and needs to be punished for his actions, but setting himself on fire is not the answer. He obviously some mental help

As opposed to setting all those others on fire? Break out the gasoline and douse him.

"An eye for an eye" will never solve problems. If you think that ways, you should start rethinking things.

How'd letting him burn the building down work out for ya?

Please wake up.

Why try to wake everyone up when nowadays everyone has fire alarms? At least all developed countries like SK have them.
