Article: Will Kim Boreum's gold medal even be honored?

Source: Sports Korea via Nate [English article]

1. [+2,193, -28] Wouldn't it be laughable that someone who doesn't know the very definition of sportsmanship can win a medal at all? If she ever won it, she'd spend the rest of her life bragging about it and wasting tax payer money as her allowance... She not only left her teammates behind but herself as well...

2. [+1,938, -26] Nope~~~~~~~ a person of such rock bottom character does not deserve a gold medal at all~!!!!!!!!

3. [+1,750, -23] Even if she wins a gold medal, people would just be wondering how many people had to sacrifice themselves for her to get to this point... She's not a little kid, why would she act like that...

4. [+85, -0] She needs to forfeit her rights as a skater

5. [+81, -0] I reckon she's embarrassed of herself at this point. She's 25 years old, she's not a little kid anymore but imagine broadcasting to the entire world that "I'm a loser still stuck in high school mentality"... I'd never be able to face anyone around me and stay in bed all day..

6. [+80, -0] It's embarrassing even calling her an athlete

7. [+76, -0] First time I've ever wanted a Korean to not win a gold medal

8. [+71, -0] Kim Boreum no longer represents Korea. We have no need for her medal, she may as well live somewhere else!

9. [+46, -1] I don't want her to win anything ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ she's the one who will be getting a pension in the end

10. [+46, -1] If she wins a medal, she wins a medal, but she should forfeit all rights to the prize and pension that come with it.

11. [+44, -0] Even if she ends up winning a medal, please don't include it in our total.

12. [+41, -0] She should not be prioritizing winning a medal but learning some character.
