Korea Shocked by Graphic Footage of Middle School Girls Brutally Attacking Even Younger Victim

Entertainment shows like dramas and movies are there for enjoyment and sometimes education when it attempts to hew close to reality and highlight relevant issues. The School series has in recent years dealt with bullying in South Korea, and also the drama Angry Mom addressed the problem head on. Knowing it exists and is a really big problem can’t prepare for actually seeing visual evidence of it in real life as the current news coverage is inundated by shocking graphic pictures and video of a violent bullying attack by school girls in Busan.

It’s not even high school students that takes this to a new level of dismay, the attackers were two 15 year old 3rd year middle school students (9th grade in the US), and the victim was a 14 year old 2nd year middle school student. The attackers cornered her in an abandoned factory and attacked her for 30 minutes with steel pipes, bricks and soju bottle shards. The victim was left begging on her hands and knees and left completed bloodied. A trigger warning if you want to click beyond and see the heartbreaking pictures, thankfully the victim survived and was treated at the hospital, and the police are now investigating the two attackers and also a third girl who stood by and watched.

  1. Wtf. But what do you expect from a country who thinks they’re so entitled that they think whatever they say is right making idols at their mercy.

  2. It seems like the Korean society needs to take a closer look at how these kids are being brought up and REFLECT. This is not just “bullying”, this is physically assaulting another person, which IS a serious crime.

  3. The sad thing is these girls will get heavy sentences but if it were boys they would get lighter ones. The sexism in Korea is so profound it reaches their highest order across all levels of crime.

    A while back we heard the story of the 15yo that was bullied, tortured and forced into prostitution until they murdered her brutally and burnt her corpse.

    3 female (14 and 15 yo) and 1 adult male was charfes for the crime. The two 14yo got away on a light sentence because they weren’t in charged, the adult male was given 6 years and the 15 yo was given 10 years because she was the one that called the other girl out even though the male was the pimp and all 4 admitted to having a hand in her death.

  4. Unfortunately there is this minor law that protects them, so most of them usually get away with lighter sentences. Same goes for Japan.

  5. I see 2 girls attacking and 2 girls standing by watching so why are they only investigating 3 girls? This is “dog pack” behavior. It’s a wonder they didn’t kill her. I hope severe justice is served.

  6. They should try these kids as adults. These teens want so bad to be like adults so, please, no juvie, try them as adults and make sure it will stay in the record as ’attempt of murder’. Then send these bullies to psychiatric ward for the rest of their lives. And their parents under surveillance and siblings to foster care. They obviously come from a family where they’ve been severely neglected or abused.

  7. I don’t think the identity of the attackers should be protected, minors or not. This is a serious crime and goes well beyond the ‘normal’ bullying behaviors. Since public opinion is so important in Korea, exposing their identities and public censure and humiliation may be an additional punishment for the perpetrators and a very good deterrent for such acts in future.

  8. This isn’t bullying… this is torture for the pleasure of these sick girls. They need to go to jail and afterwards to a psychiatric ward. They are most likely a danger for everyone.

  9. Dudes we had some girls using slender man to almost murder another girl in the US. Don’t be paternalistic. It happens right here in the US.

    • And what happened to the girl in the US who did this? It is my understanding that due to the age of the girls involved in this incident, they will pretty much get away with it.

      • For those not familiar with the slender man case, the perpetrators were around 12 when the incident occurred and were being tried as adults. One just accepted a plea deal of attempted second degree murder. The other gal who is mentally ill is being tried separately.

        I read elsewhere that the Busan girls might totally get away with it because of some loophole I assume relating to age.

    • Indeed. And in the UK there were those two girls who tortured a women to death in Hartlepool. Not something that occurs in just one country. Definitely beyond bullying though, and those behind it often have bad childhoods/situations they are dealing with

  10. Whatever the problem is this is beyond too much. Students (and people) these days need to chill out. Ganging up on one girl and not only using fists but sharp and hard objects. Instead of learning to read and write we should start teaching people how to respect each other.

  11. This is not bullying. This is attempted murder or something… it goes well beyond bullying. WTF is wrong with those girls??? They should be locked up! They’re dangerous.

  12. it still a part of bullying.
    no matter what,bullying is a crime, it will be a tradition if the adult people decide to keep in silence and doesn’t care.
    i don’t know the reason why they did that, but what they did, not only almost kill the victims but they definitely kill their own future.
    poor the victim,and poor their parents!

  13. This may seem to be a general and somewhat biased opinion here. But from reading several articles about the continuous very abusive treatment of females in the Asian countries. I am of the belief that they do not care for females on a whole because it appears to be okay for them to do this without any real severe punishment for the predators/prepetrators who do this all the time. There is no justice system for the punishment to fit the crime/consequence. This explains why this will always happen. To make matters worse its the females who are of the warped opinion in support of this, they are their worst enemies, in terms of acceptance and cursing/blaming the victim when these things happen. The men are very guilty as well but when they are acclimatized into to believing that it is the norm and there is no real punishment in doing. It does not surprise me when conscience is lost and it becomes frequent.

    I have never read an article where it seems that real justice or protection was given to the female victim of these sad events/incidents. Instead it gets worst. I am not American, nor do I think it is perfect in anyway, but I remember years ago my brother said this to me “America is a woman’s country”. Why did he say that because I think he is of the belief that if something like this occurred in the States there is a higher chance of this victim getting some real justice or other related victims getting protected unlike those countries in the Asian continent. In a way he is right, I can imagine a chance proper reparation for the victim given there than over that part. Its a real shame that the legal system in these countries is a total crock, they do not protect the victim or seem to care for them otherwise to say the least. Their laws strongly supports the criminal and that is why it pays.

    When you watch some of the kdramas or worse yet Thai Lakorns rarely do you see a rapist or murderer completely & severly punished. In the case of Thai lakorns rapists (especially when they are married) are rewarded greatly like it is an honor for the girl to undergo such treatment and hence she the heroine ends of falling in love and marrying said person and having the child. With the kdramas it is to me no real punishment for the murderer/punishment its usually light sentences for which makes being decent with morals a total joke overall. Don’t even go there with the parents who are total monsters, and the fact that they seem to make it okay for an employee to get slapped by a supervisor etc for having an opinion that disagree with theirs. I done talk on this.

    What I do wish is there is some real hope for the girl, she gets a chance to recover and live. And some real punishment for the perpetrators and in a way calling out the parents in terms of accountability for this. I also wish that these shows in those countries start to try teaching the public as to respecting and honoring women with honorable behavior from both genders, they show that there is hope for women who stand up for themselves and protect themselves, stop rewarding immorality by saying that as long as a woman endures whatever is given to her without retaliation or standing straight for herself she in their minds is a real woman and that to me is twisted logic/principle.

  14. Last year, in France 126 women died due to repetitive attacks by their husband, boyfriend, former boyfriend / husband…. The number of children who commit suicide due (cyber)/bullying is increasing…( a poor little boy of 9 years )

  15. The victims mum asked them why they did it. And the answer was “I like the smell of blood, as she bled, I want to hit her more.” and “I feel like I want to hit her, I don’t remember anything else.”
    That’s not even ‘bullying’ anymore but committing a crime because they are sociopaths. Not even someone who was through abusive would do THIS, and to be honest I don’t even think that they ever got beaten up just looking at their answer.

  16. I agree with maim. These girls are cowards and are ugly to the bone. Their names need to be plastered everywhere, letting everyone know who they are and what they did. Jail should be mandatory for these little creeps.

  17. I read about this on FB and it seems like the police were barely trying to do their job. The mom seems to be the one that forced their hand and fought for attention and justice. This is not bullying, this is assault and battery, probably attempted murder. If they were in the states, they would be facing serious time. Pipes, bricks, and glass shards? Are they effing gangsters? And all this was supposedly over a guy? No offense, but Asia needs better laws in place to protect women and children and hold people truly accountable for heinous stuff like this.
