1. [+2,846, -336] ㅋㅋ He's really blaming the police for what happened? Who do you think you are?

2. [+1,308, -46] I don't think he understands what happened. Why should the police be blamed for this? Anyone who's been to that alleyway in Itaewon will agree that this situation could not have been controlled. The best they can do for the area is to control the larger streets to prevent car accidents. What were the police supposed to do about the hundreds of thousands who were forcing their way in even after seeing the crowds bursting down the alley? I think his blaming of the police is a disservice to the hard work that the police and medical professionals have put in all this time. They tried their best. Don't put any blame or guilt on them. He should apologize for blaming the police.

3. [+908, -59] Seems like this actor has never been to Halloween in Itaewon before COVID. Police have never been stationed in that small alleyway which is just a street of restaurants ㅎㅎ it's funny to even expect that. It's difficult to control that street in reality.

4. [+363, -26] Why is he blaming the police right now?

5. [+118, -3] He's really claiming that this could've been prevented? How about he start by thinking about why he was there in the first place?

1. [+2,708, -299] Honestly, this news feels like he's trying to use the tragedy to promote his own name

2. [+1,960, -200] What did you want the police to do? Line down the center just so you could have some fun?

3. [+1,718, -115] There's no official sponsor for all these Halloween events around Itaewon, so how was the police supposed to have expected these crowds... I understand that the conditions were ripe for an accident, but how could the police have predicted this beforehand and stationed themselves there???

4. [+287, -5] This makes me angry. Don't blame the police. Even if police had been there, they would've been crushed along with the rest. Are you stupid? If you knew that something dangerous was going to happen, why did you go? Why did you stay? Do not blame the police or firemen when you couldn't even handle yourself.

5. [+295, -21] Everyone who was there tried their best to save others. Actor Yoon-nim, as did you. I recognize that. But how were we supposed to be able to control a crowd of individuals who went there to enjoy a night of their own free will? It's not like there was an official company sponsoring the event. I'm tired of the government being witch-hunted any time something happens, it honestly makes you look ignorant. I pray that the dead rest in peace, but this was just a terribly unlucky incident that everyone did their best to help others in. This is no one's fault, but if we're trying to assign blame like you are doing, then you are just as much as the problem for joining that crowd instead of posting anything that could've warned people from going. 

6. [+225, -1] Halloween will be gone from this country after today

7. [+210, -5] If we had police stationed down the center of the alley, they would've been the first to get crushed to death

8. [+177, -5] This was never an issue that stationing police would've solved, especially down narrow, sloping alleyways like Itaewon. If they had shut that alley down, another alley would've been crushed all the same. The only solution was to enforce social distancing in Itaewon... This was all the result of citizens failing to adhere to lines and rules. We must also find the culprit who shouted "shove!!!!" into the crowd.

9. [+175, -8] There are always people like this who fail to read the room and end up saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. This is not the time for him to be speaking up right now.

10. [+157, -9] Can this nugu idiot stay quiet... Just because you gave CPR doesn't excuse you from the fact you're blaming police for all this when they probably had a better understanding of the situation than you ever would. Keep your ignorant mouth shut instead of using this tragedy for your own name...

11. [+135, -3] As adults, everyone should've been expected to keep an orderly fashion. Why should the police be tasked with following everyone around and making sure they're doing what they should?

12. [+106, -4] ㅋㅋ "I predicted this would happen" then why'd you go? If you knew this would happen and chose not to go, then this accident wouldn't have happened ㅎㅎ you share responsibility in what happened so don't say such foolish things...

13. [+99, -2] The police needed to have control? You do realize that everyone in that crowd would've ignored the police anyway? That they're the ones who caused this to happen? They're the ones who were blocking ambulances, singing and dancing together, drinking while all of this going on... don't make me laugh.

14. [+98, -3] If you knew this would happen, why didn't you alert the police or do something? Anyone can make up anything when only the results are what we have.

15. [+71, -5] Do all the people blaming police really think that they could've controlled the situation if they were police themselves?? Do you really think that thousands of people all listen to the police immediately?? Are police somehow gods that can only produce the most perfect results at all times?

16. [+67, -4] This news feels like he's using this as an opportunity to get his name in the media... He's misusing the pain of others for his own gain.
