Seoul Mayor found dead after 7 hour search following accusations of sexual harassment by secretary

Source: Yonhap News via Nate

1. [+412, -73] He clearly committed suicide because he's not innocent in the face of the truth. Does he think suicide will make this all go away? He'll forever be remembered as the Mayor of Seoul who committed suicide due to a sexual harassment scandal.

2. [+358, -77] Do not glamorize a sex criminal

3. [+53, -19] Has there ever been a time where so many firemen and policemen were set out to find someone? This is just so wrong...

4. [+51, -6] All politicians need to be placed with secretaries of the same sex. Female mayors get female secretaries, etc..

5. [+38, -13] In the end, he's a sex criminal

6. [+34, -5] Jeez.. I don't know what to say. If he did something wrong, he should have asked for forgiveness from the victim and lived out the rest of his life in reflection. And if he didn't do anything wrong, he can prove himself in court. Why die? ㅠ Why do our country's politicians never face the consequences of their actions and choose to die instead?? And if this scandal truly is a result of the secretary's #metoo, then he basically did his victim wrong twice... Now she'll have to live with the guilt that she caused his death. It's embarrassing that our own mayor has taken his life while in office.. I had hoped so dearly that he would be found safe so that he could either give an explanation or pay the consequences..

7. [+33, -2] Why would you kill yourself over sexual harassment... There are others who are living their lives just fine even with entire sex tapes out...

8. [+30, -1] Wow... I never thought I'd hear that the Mayor of Seoul has died... Would admitting to your crime, stepping down, and paying the price of your crime be that hard? What about the rest of his family, what did they do to deserve this.. 

9. [+30, -3] A man leading a country's city couldn't control his sexual desires and led to this tsk tsk, pathetic, just pathetic

10. [+26, -6] Just because of a #metoo?? He was the mayor for 10 years, he's surely seen grosser things in government, and yet he committed suicide before his #metoo even got out properly?? I'd understand if the whole #metoo thing had gotten out first and he was being tormented over it but... there has to be another reason

1. [+3,221, -51] What is this, how can the mayor of Seoul do this?

2. [+3,158, -199] Please do not glamorize the lives of politicians who have committed crimes, do not treat them like they are deserving of special treatment. They are disgusting and cowardly!!

3. [+718, -267] Parties aside, may he rest in peace

4. [+299, -11] This... makes me so angry. If something like this made him so scared and embarrassed, why did he commit the crime in the first place? What is this, come on.. seriously..

5. [+252, -8] This is the most dishonorable way to resign from your position

6. [+224, -19] Ugh.. so embarrassing... to hear that the mayor of our country's capital not only committed a crime but commit suicide over it... how can you be so irresponsible?

7. [+151, -4] Death doesn't end everything... If you committed a crime, you can just pay the price for it... Or if your pride is so strong and you're scared of being pointed at, just don't commit crimes... So irresponsible to the people who believed in him and voted for him. This breaks my heart but suicide cannot be glamorized.

8. [+141, -7] What are the victims supposed to do if he just runs away like this? He should've lived and paid the price of his crimes. This is embarrassing even for his supporters. This is irresponsible.

9. [+115, -4] What an empty life. He had everything but lost it all to one moment of desire. I never personally liked him but may he rest in peace.

10. [+107, -7] Park Won Soon died because of #metoo?? But he struggled so hard to get to where he is now??? Honestly, politicians can get away with anything, but he couldn't stop this #metoo???

11. [+101, -4] Ugh, how embarrassing for our country. The minute the mayor of Seoul got accused of sexual harassment, he killed himself before investigations could even be underway. He probably knew that all sorts of nasty things would be discovered in the investigations and he couldn't bear the embarrassment. He has to be the first public figure to kill himself before any investigations even took place. Apparently he sent pictures with a telegram. He probably knew there was no way out of this.

12. [+94, -5] He could've proven himself in court; it's sad but he basically admitted to all the accusations through death.
