On May 31 at 3:15 a.m. KST, Omae Kim was recording live when he discovered a man's body, which later identified to be 24-year-old Mr. Seo.
According to the police, Omae Kim walked towards the water thinking that he saw a mannequin floating but shrieked and ran away in horror at the sight of the dead body.
During the live broadcast, Omae Kim reacted to the terrifying situation with the words, "I am so scared right now. I will call emergency here on the spot. It can't be a mannequin, right? I got chills running down my spine," not believing what he had just seen.
About 100 viewers witnessed the scene during the live-stream as police reached the site after receiving the Omae Kim's call, and confirmed the subject to be a dead body.
Police reported that they did not find any evidence of a letter or will by Mr. Seo, nor any injuries or traces of body decay, claiming it had not been long since he had died.
The case is continuing to be investigated with the possibility of it being a murder.
