1. [+1,640, -167] The audacity for him to upload a picture of the dog's birthday party the day the man passed away

2. [+1,154, -126] So he begged for forgiveness but still uploaded pictures of the dog on his Instagram!

3. [+1,078, -123] It makes me sick to think he pretended to cry at the funeral while still celebrating his dog's birthday and sharing a picture of it...

4. [+833, -36] The only victim in this is the man who passed away

5. [+537, -19] He was only sad at the funeral. They went straight home to throw a birthday party for the dog and still kept it unleashed. Even shared a picture on SNS. Nothing changed.

1. [+3,075, -47] I have a lot of respect for the family for showing maturity in such a difficult situation. I hope that they're consoled in some way. With more and more families adopting pets, I hope that we strengthen laws regarding pet ownership and further develop a culture that prevents accidents such as this.

2. [+2,636, -92] The family is a saint. Dog owners need to please stop going around saying that their dog doesn't bite.

3. [+2,539, -404] The family was fooled. The day the man passed away, Choi Siwon's family shared pictures of the dog celebrating his birthday.

4. [+163, -6] It's weird how the family claims they came to visit and beg for forgiveness but would they really care about being forgiven when they went straight home and threw a happy birthday party and even had the audacity to share that on Instagram?

5. [+129, -6] So the person who passed away is actually a woman. It makes me so sad to think that it could be my mother. I don't think it's right for the deceased's sister to be forgiving anyone when even her own children have kept quiet so far.

6. [+111, -3] I don't know... I'd be pissed if my mother passed away from a dog bite and my aunt went around forgiving them

7. [+100, -2] Since the whole thing happened in September, I'm sure the family has had time to talk about things. But it leaves a bad taste in my mouth that the person giving this interview about forgiveness is the sister, the co-CEO of the restaurant.

8. [+61, -7] Choi Siwon must've given them a huuuuge settlement sum... it's a win win for anyone. The family gets to divide the inheritance and the settlement while saying a nice thing about CHoi Siwon's family. Choi Siwon's family just seems like sociopaths to me now... gives me goosebumps.

9. [+56, -1] The CEO passed away on October 3rd but on that day, Choi Siwon's younger sister shared a picture with the dog and its birthday cake saying it's his birthday. What a sociopathic family.

10. [+37, -1] I have no idea how the sister can be this generous with forgiveness when her own dongsaeng was killed by a dog. It also bothers me that she's the co-CEO of the restaurant... I really hope there's no foul play at hand here.

1. [+1,212, -20] After the accident, after the death of the CEO, he still uploaded pictures of the dog on his Instagram. Only after when the media started reporting on the issue and his name was being spread everywhere did he delete everything on Instagram and post his apology. Yeah, that seems genuine alright.

2. [+1,142, -13] What gives me goosebumps is that it happened in September and yet they continued to share pictures of the dog living happily. Only now did they take all the pictures down to apologize on SNS... Any average person would be living with so much guilt and not be able to function... It makes me sick to think that they lived like nothing happened when their own dog killed a person.

3. [+957, -13] So disappointed in Choi Siwon for continuing to upload pictures of his dog like nothing happened even after the accident

4. [+50, -1] If my dog caused someone's death, I would not even be able to eat because of all the guilt. I know what it's like to lose a family member and I know the immense pain and life shattering effect it has. I really wish the deceased's family doesn't let this go.

5. [+49, -1] He's a psychopath

1. [+1,104, -26] The person passed away on October 3rd, dog had a birthday party on October 5th, then more pictures of the dog being walked unleashed. If this is all true I'm so disappointed in him ㅠ

2. [+944, -49] Put the dog down

3. [+791, -50] Kill the dog

4. [+76, -1] The fact that the family is trying to blame the death on a secondary infection just seems like a deflection of responsibility. There's previous instances where he posted about the dog getting training because he bites people and even a fellow SJ member claimed to have been bitten by him before. How did he think it was okay to take the dog out without a leash or a muzzle? He even thought it was okay to take pictures of the dog being walked unleashed. Even took birthday pictures the day the CEO passed away... this is so wrong, isn't it?

5. [+49, -0] He needs to think.. what if my own father passed away after being bitten by another family's dog. Can anything compensate for that???

1. [+1,887, -52] If it's true that he shared birthday pictures of his dog on the day the CEO passed away, the whole situation is just horrifying

2. [+1,608, -31] He even posted on Instagram a picture of his dog being walked unleashed even after he had bitten someone

3. [+1,342, -27] The owners are the bigger problem than the dog

4. [+111, -0] The CEO would've never died from blood poisoning if you had taken care of your dog and prevented it from biting her. How dare you blame a secondary infection as the cause of death when your dog is the one that caused it in the first place?

5. [+108, -2] Put the dog down. I would've beat the crap out of the dog if my own father passed away because of it ㅡㅡ how dare you throw a birthday party when the dog killed someone...? ㅡㅡ


Article: "An expected accident? Choi Siwon's bull dog has no leash in pictures on SNS

1. [+623, -8] He knew that the dog bit people and still kept it unleashed. Sigh. I know that my own dog won't bite me but I always keep it leashed outside and keep it tight when people pass by. What an unfortunate death... talk about being hit by a meteor out of thin air.

2. [+563, -9] He regrammed his dog's birthday picture the day the CEO passed away. Just gives me goosebumps to think about it... to think that someone can be so shameless to be on SNS after killing a person.

3. [+505, -5] Why doesn't he keep the dog leashed when he knows it bites people? Does he think that other human lives are beneath him because he's so rich?

4. [+57, -0] Apparently the CEO lost her husband and raised her son on her own before being killed by the dog. Now the son is an orphan and he's still a student in school.

5. [+47, -1] It's pretty obvious from these pictures that the dog belongs to Choi Siwon, not just his family

1. [+2,143, -64] Aren't they psychopaths? I understand that they love the dog but their dog bit someone to death... how could you do this on the day of their death...

2. [+1,905, -87] A birthday party for a dog that mauled a person to death? Do they not have brains?

3. [+1,837, -35] If this is true, simple compensation isn't enough... nothing they do will make the person come back alive.

4. [+143, -2] I don't understand how you can act like this after knowing that you put another family into utter misery. I wouldn't be able to do anything because I'd be so worried for them.

5. [+140, -1] Is this an entire family of psychopaths??????????? A person was bitten to death and they throw a birthday party for that dog??????????? Do people enjoy showing how brainless they are on SNS????


Article: Birthday party after the death of Hanilkwan CEO? That wasn't the truth

Source: OSEN via Naver

Article points out that initial reports of the CEO's death said she passed away on October 3rd but she actually passed away on the 6th. The birthday party was uploaded on the 3rd and no pictures have been posted since her actual death.

1. [+2,006, -76] Doesn't change the fact that they shared pictures of the dog's birthday party after he had bitten someone and put them in the hospital in critical situation

2. [+1,748, -55] Either way, they still had a birthday party and kept the dog unleashed even after all that, they're crazy

3. [+1,674, -91] Don't care, any dog that bit someone to death needs to be put down

4. [+1,446, -63] Doesn't change the fact that they didn't even put the dog down but threw him a birthday party instead

5. [+463, -7] And is it any more normal to throw a birthday party for your dog when it bit someone and put them in the hospital? They obviously thought it wasn't a big deal at all to think it's okay to throw a birthday party for. How pathetic to ask for less hate just because the party was thrown 3 days before the person passed away?

6. [+386, -5] As if throwing a party while she was still hospitalized makes it any better

7. [+340, -6] It's funny that they think this article will fix the situation at all. It still remains a fact that the party was thrown after the person was bitten and hospitalized.

8. [+327, -6] Either way, they still threw a party after the dog bit someone...


Article: Mismanagement of dog, birthday party controversy... the public remains enraged despite Choi Siwon's apology

Source: Kukmin Ilbo via Nate

1. [+1,129, -22] Amazing mentality... throwing a birthday party when the dog put someone in critical condition in the hospital. Trash of a family.

2. [+1,028, -17] It gives me goosebumps to think that even after their dog had bitten someone, they probably brushed it under the rug like "aigoo~ don't do that again puppy~" and took it on a walk again. Terrifying.

3. [+998, -19] The entire family seems to have lost their minds. What's the point of being so rich when they're just shells of human beings? Taking the pictures down only after the controversy blew up? Did they not think that this would be controversial to begin with? If they're genuinely sorry, they'd put the dog down and screw off from TV. Really puts Choi Siwon in a different light.

4. [+47, -1] Their family is terrifying. Their own dog killed someone and they act like nothing's wrong and throw a party for it. The nuna even promoted merchandise while Choi Siwon promoted a face mask brand too. How psychopathic do you have to be to think that's okay???

5. [+35, -1] Anyone who shields him is more terrifying than the fact that someone died in this entire situation


Article: What will be the fate of Choi Siwon's pet after killing the CEO?

Source: Starin via Nate

1. [+1,820, -152] Any dog that bites people needs to be put down ㅠ

2. [+1,693, -134] Obviously put down, he killed someone...

3. [+1,529, -145] I know it's going to hurt but I think it's only right to put the dog down...

4. [+115, -4] The dog isn't at fault... but do you really think a dog that bit once will only bite once? Can you imagine seeing that dog on the streets after knowing that it killed someone? I'd be so scared... and you can't even be sure that he'll manage the dog properly.

5. [+77, -9] Dog problems are 100% the fault of its owners. People are so quick to yell at dogs like "no!" "stop!" without ever giving them the proper training. It's sad but that dog needs to be put down because it already bit someone.
