Another student commits suicide over school violence

Article: High school student jumps to his death 'school violence mentioned in his suicide note'

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

On the 11th, a 15 year old male high school student jumped off the 23rd floor of his apartment. In his suicide note, he said, "Kim bullied me at school."

The student's family had let Kim live with them for half a year because of his difficult family circumstances. The note revealed that Kim and his friends had been bullying him at school for over two years.

The student's father said, "I'd give him a week's worth of allowance and he'd spend it all in a day so I reprimanded him once about not being careful with his spending. He said that he spent it all with his friends, and I should've caught on to what was happening then."

He also mentions in his note that although the school has CCTV installed, there are a lot of areas the cameras don't reach like the bathrooms where he was mostly beat in by Kim and five others.

1. [+136, -0] That Kim guy is an absolute bastard... The family clothes him and feeds him and he pays them back like this... Well, from now on the jail will clothe him and feed him so I hope this ba$tard reflects over what he's done to his bones!!!

2. [+129, -0] They say never to let in a black haired beast into your home.

3. [+85, -1] The adults were right. Never let a black haired beast into your home.

4. [+16, -0] Our country is the best for committing crimes. You can kill someone off and get off with a light sentence just for being a minor. Every single day, there are articles about sexual assault and suicides and yet the law remains the same.

5. [+9, -0] What a fool. If he has the bravery to kill himself, he should kill at least one or two of the guys who tortured him and take them with him to the other world. Why die alone???

  2. Omg... how... how could he do such a thing? The student and his family was so kind to him... may he rest in peace and may Kim forever have that personal guilt.

  3. This is a problem not only in Korea but the USA as well, and I imagine even more places. How many more kids will we fail before something is done? Even ones as young as 10 and 11 are killing themselves. It's too depressing....

  5. Bullying has been a huge problem in Korea way before the whole T-ara scandal.

  9. It takes a lot more bravery to kill someone than to kill yourself. Killing someone, you live with the guilt for the rest of your life. Yea, they might have hurt you, thus lessening the guilt, but humans will always have a conscience.

  10. But if they kill themselves AND others then they don't have guilt bc they're dead so

  13. you're not in his shoes to say this. A lot of bullies have a hard time and it just saddens me that his parents didn't even notice that their son was going through a rough time. If the parents were attentive enough to notice changes in their son, this wouldn't happen. Sad sad world.......

  14. Taking a life is just stupid and careless, if more people think the way you do the world would be a much more horrible place to live in.

  15. The parents should have paid more attention to the child.
    They could have asked "how's school son?"

  16. really, now. i cant believe that the fact that the bully even lived with the student and his family? and yet all of this happened.
    i feel piss reading this.



    rest in peace.

  17. such unfortunate things happening in this world... may he rest in peace... these days i've been thinking about that comment a k.netizen made on this matter days ago that said something like "It doesn't matter if I raise my kid to be a good person because other kids will just step all over him" and its so true... the parents were teaching the student to be good to other people thru what they did with Kim and look at how Kim paid them... it's not all Kim's fault tho... parents show pay more attention to their kids... I dont know if my mom had eagle eyes or that i was too obvious but she found out about everything.

    ..........................tbh this make me think of school shootings....
    Some of those kids did have legitimate mental issues, but there were also ones that suffered from bullying in school and decided it was enough so they decided to take it out on other students...

  20. Keep trolling dude. You're the one who bullied T-ara here.. With an evidence. Without you knowing you're the one of trolls who makes statistic of suicide increase day by day.

  21. try to do it on me, you will never come home in your house without broken bones in your body.

  23. Wouldn't a more torturous punishment for his bullies be to let them live in regret of killing him? The look on his face while they beat him is probably going to haunt their dreams for the rest of their lives. If he killed one of the bullies, I think the other surviving bullies would feel less guilt.
    Honestly though, I think Kim has a mental illness or something.

  24. So sad....can't believe it's happening in a conservative society like South Korea! Government leader need to do something.

  25. There is a very good movie centered around that exact topic starring Eric of Shinhwa and Shin Eun Kyung. It's called Diary of June or Bystanders. You can watch it w/subs here

    http://www.gooddrama.net/korean-movie/diary-of-june

    It's a "mild thriller", as my friend put it, but it's also funny, sad and its message will stick with you long after the credits are done rolling.

  26. i didn't mean to live after killing him... it's just i want to take that trash w/ me to save others like smth idk

  27. I think theres a difference between teaching your kid to be kind and being a doormat. My parents taught me to be respectful, kind, and thoughtful but if I or anyone else (friend or not) were bullied, I'd put a stop to it right then in there.
    Learning about wangtta really made me sick.

  28. In light of the current topic that joke was in bad taste

  29. i doubt the bullies actually care.

  30. That Kim shithole needs to be trialled as an adult. For all's worth, I'm content to not even consider him a human being either.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Unless they're legit psychopaths, they definitely would be affected. Killing someone, being the reason someone died, is much, much worse than just beating someone up for lunch money or fun. How many of these kind of stories have I read where the bullies said "it was all in good fun" or "I didn't want to do it but everyone else was doing it" or "I wish I stopped this sooner"
    Like I said, I think Kim has a mental illness so maybe he wouldn't care but the others...

  32. Feel sad bout him...but the issue i want to raise here....why when everthing went wrong korean/japanese resort to suicide...even liitle kid now knownothin else but killing themselves when they got into trouble....bullying happens all over the world...yet it s hardly heard indian boy killin himself .....why?

  37. Honestly...I've been bullied and it's not fun..yes sometimes you actually get thoughts of suicide...but I'm from a Christian family and I'm more afraid of going to hell than dying and being bullied

    ReplyDelete
  38. With issues like this, I find it hypocritical to criticize the kid Kim for what happened. Most times, it's the situation that creates a character, and crimes or suicides are only consequences of underlying issues.


    Instead of bashing their own, they should reflect on their societal issues to see why a kid like Kim would have a troubled family, and why bullying is still prevalent in schools.

  39. hmm..bummer..

  40. Yes which is.... essentially what I said.

  41. Last night, I watched this Korean movie called Don't Click. It was about a group of keyboard warriors who drove this girl to commit suicide. Then she came back, as a ghost, to kill them all.

    Imagine how many of us would end up dying...

  42. This is really messed up. How is someone going to take you into his parent's home and you bully them to death. That kid is a heartless monster and need his ass beat. I feel really bad for the kid. He should've told his parents about what's going on, so they could have intervened.


    Now it's too late to save him. Things like this always make me so sad.

  43. and the same go for taking you own life....:-/ in that moment you don't think much( like with all stupid thing we do ) but he could have done something elze , like reporting him to his parents..or run away and going in another school ..i don't know but not killing youself ..it will do nothing good , it will only pain you parents/ familly and friends if he had but mostly his familly and then most of the case the bully isn't even properly punished..then what do you have ? nothing , you are death ..i pity him , he must have gone thought really hard time .. 2 years....how come nobody noticed ? well normaly class mate don't do anything -_-"..some because they are scared that will be bullied too ..but the teacher ? or the parents ? .. :-/

  44. why the f*** sh** bully exist in this world ?
    that shitty hell kim should be buried in hell and let the hell give the suffer to him because the bad karma he made also his friends
    let see him in the next future, he will suffer because he bullied someone
    and we all gonna say, "EAT YOUR FOOD KIM !"

  45. there are some that really don't care and that's not because they are psychopaths , but some would think " ha ! it's his own fault for being a wimp ! etc etc ......

    it's like someone bully someone elze or did something to them and this personne(the victim) is severly injured or move avay and they don't fell any regret ! and will continue !i have seen such things

    like the guy that died from stomach cancer ..there were many people that bashed him because they thought he lied but even when the guy died and thus everybody knew he wasn't lying some people still continued !! :-(

    ReplyDelete
  46. exactly....i have seen in new's and many drama and manga portray it too , that even many grow up people (mostly men's) kill themself because of social presure (work) or have difficulty with money and they kill themself because of their assurance -_-"...i mean death isn't the only solution ..

    ReplyDelete
  47. yea in my religion too and for us whatever we are going thought , hard times and really difficult time ,we are way more afraid of hell , because it's 1000X more frightening :-( that's for people that really believe in it ..

  48. That would be a psychopath, honey. Google it.
    But then again, some will say to the world that they "didn't do anything." "The kid shouldn't have been so pathetic." "He wasn't as innocent as the media makes him out to be." "He deserved it." They are trying to make themselves feel better and hope that maybe if they say it enough, it'll become true but when it is silent and dark, they start to remember everything they did. Their conscious won't let them get away from it.
    If they don't have a conscious, if they don't feel empathy, then they are a psychopath.

  49. oh yes,because the world = USA

  50. wow, get ovr it. she clearly said "in korea, USA, and i IMAGINE MANY MORE PLACES" reading comprehension: learn it ........ she's obviously from the US i'm assuming, so of course she will mention it first. if she were from france and said "it's a problem here in my country, france, too, and i bet other places" you probably wouldn't have bat an eyelash. e_e

  51. I should've screen shot before she changed her comment ;/ its called editting your comment learn that...

  52. This is just sad. Unfortunately you hear about these types of stories all the time these days. Especially in Korea and other asian countries. They don't really do much about bullying. It needs to stop.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wasn't a joke that was stupidity.

    ReplyDelete
  54. sorry,but he/she really edited his/her comment and added the more places part,i clearly remember that it wasn't there before or else i wouldn't care. btw it doesn't matter to me that the person is from the usa, if he/she wrote the same but with france i still would react the same...don't try to be the person who knows everything, saying that i have problems with americans because i don't,since i have american friends and also relatives in the USA...i just don't like this kind of "my country is the whole word" thing, that's all.
    end of the story.
