On June 12, Yangsan Police Station reported that 41-year old Mr. Seoh residing in an apartment building in Yangsan has been arrested and is currently being investigated for attempted manslaughter.

According to police personnel, Mr. Seoh went up to the rooftop of his apartment on June 8 at 8:10 am KST and cut down the safety rope holding construction workers Mr. Kim (age 46) and Mr. Hwang (age 36) with a cutting knife.

Mr. Kim was on the 12th floor when he fell to his death after his rope was cut while Mr. Hwang survived the fall as his rope wasn't completely torn.

Police rushed to the scene after receiving an emergency call and found the thick rope had been cut. Upon closer inspection, it appeared the rope had been cut down by artificial means. Later it was revealed that Mr. Seoh took action after neighbors complained about loud music being played from a cell phone.

Mr. Seoh claimed, "I have trouble sleeping at night and the loud music made it worse. Furious, I went up to the rooftop but I didn't see anyone except for a set of ropes so I chopped it down."

It was also revealed that Mr. Seoh had been drinking a bottle and half of soju at the time of committing the crime.

Currently, the police are looking to press charges against Mr. Seoh.

Ok because just asking the workers to turn it down wasnt a viable option?

This guy is full of crap. Why would you suddenly decide to cut some random ropes due to loud music? There's literally no correlation between these two things.

just pure psycho

He was drunk. No logical thinking.

He knew cutting those ropes would stop the music. He didn't think they were some random ropes. I'm too sober to buy that shit.

I'm not defending his actions, but if he's drunk, there's no logical thinking. That doesn't excuse him from his actions.

What the fuck, that's just plainly trying to kill these guys cause you didn't like noise.

Even if there was no intention to kill, it should be one account in manslaughter where there was a death and one account of attempted manslaughterHowever it is hard to deny ill intent. Anyone in their right mind would have the awareness of what would happen when you cut the support rope of someone up that high. Sounds like intent to me, intoxicated or not

This is not a time to make a joke.

He seriously did this instead of idk, asking the people to turn their music down? Was this really something to take someone's life over? And I agree with the comment below me, this should be manslaughter or murder, not attempted manslaughter

i don't understand.. if he successfully cut the rope and somebody died, it's plain manslaughter, not attempted.. that would be if he was found out while trying to cut the rope. I can see why they didn't charge him with murder as he probably wasn't trying to actually kill them. But then... he was intoxicated with drugs at the time so he might as well be charged with murder instead.
