1. [+1,219, -36] I wish this heavy rainfall would stop. I can't imagine how difficult and upsetting it must be to all of those affected by this;

2. [+1,216, -29] Wow, this is my first time seeing Seoul underwater like this. I hope there are no deaths.

3. [+1,103, -19] This is the worst I've seen ㅠㅠㅠ and it's not even a typhoon...

4. [+53, -1] Gangnam is under water again;;; how is it that we don't do anything about this every single year?

5. [+52, -7] While the east and the south are suffering from drought, Seoul is flooding... Earth, it's all our fault ㅠ.ㅜ Hoping that there are no deaths...

1. [+878, -18] I bet you 99% that this 'Shinlimdong Phelps' is going to end up in the hospital soon for some kind of skin disease

2. [+740, -11] Why would you even want to swim in all of that sewage water...

3. [+60, -2] 'Parasite' thought that the rich would be spared while only those living in basements would flood but I guess in reality, all of Gangnam is underwater

4. [+56, -0] Swimming in water that's been sitting in years of rot with cigarette butts and rat poop...

5. [+46, -0] If he's unlucky, he's going to end up electrocuted. This looks dangerous.

6. [+43, -0] 100% he's going to end up with digestion and skin issues ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ he's basically playing in sewage water ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

1. [+1,102, -20] He looks so carefree, as if he'll just whip out a flute any minute now and just start playing

2. [+819, -10] All of these flooded cars that are going to hit the market soon..

3. [+64, -0] How does he look so carefree..

4. [+57, -0] 😳 How can he be so chill in a situation like this?~;; What a sage..

1. [+1,781, -7] This may sound easy but it's definitely not once you are forced to do it. He deserves praise for his actions, and I aim to learn from his lead. I wish him much luck in life.

2. [+1,539, -17] People really need to stop throwing away cigarette butts and other trash down there

3. [+39, -7] Better than the president

4. [+38, -2] He deserves an award

5. [+33, -5] The trash we throw away mindlessly will come back to us like this. Sad that I still see people throwing away cigarette butts at their leisure.

6. [+29, -1] The water went down so easily once he cleared it out. Sigh. So important to keep it clean.

7. [+22, -2] What he did was actually dangerous. You run the risk of being swept by a rush of water when you open the trash to flood gates like that.

8. [+19, -1] Wish we could throw all the people who incorrectly dispose of cigarette butts down the sewer instead
