1. [+993, -5] A drama like this would never exist if bullies received proper punishments in real life. Instead, students are failed by their teachers, police authorities, and the courts, and that's why dramas like this are feeding them the satisfaction of an ideal world where bad people get what they deserve.

2. [+549, -4] People are turning to ideas of private revenge because reporting the issue does nothing. It makes every bit of sense for a parent to approach the bully themselves if their kid is being bullied and it's unfair that the courts are starting to fine parents for it. The law is basically set up to keep students quiet, which will only cause more private revenge to crop up. This is a legal issue and authorities need to start realizing that.

3. [+352, -3] Who is our law protecting if a parent who yelled at her child's bully is now getting fined 5 million won and jail of up to a year!! You're basically killing these victims twice!

4. [+327, -0] Stop and think about why our country is so obsessed with a drama that takes matters into her own hands instead of the law.. 

5. [+256, -0] Really think hard about why dramas like 'Taxi Driver' and 'The Glory' are as popular as they are!

6. [+44, -0] "A mother in her forties was recently fined 100 million won and probation of a year for approaching her daughter's bully classmate and yelling at her, 'Do not talk to my daughter; do not do anything to her at all.'" Oh come on, this is so wrong ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ this will only cause bullies to act out knowing they can't be punished ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

7. [+30, -0] Revenge is always better than s*icide

8. [+23, -0] If the law won't help you, you gotta do what Dongeun did. The law is obviously a mess for dramas like this to satisfy people.

9. [+10, -0] In real life, the law is always on Yeonjin's side

10. [+9, -1] Revenge like this can only exist in dramas. In real life, the law will always side with the person with money and power. No amount of reports against them will help you.

11. [+5, -0] Private revenge is never the answer, but I don't see what else students can do when they tell their teachers and are told "don't fight and get along", when police say "it's not our jurisdiction"... it's just pain after pain for the victims.

12. [+4, -0] Yes, obviously we all know that revenge like this isn't possible in real life! But think of why that is! Because the courts don't help the people! An eye for an eye!

13. [+4, -0] Well guess what, Moon Dongeun tried reporting it, and look where that got her...

14. [+4, -0] When someone's dreaming of this type of revenge, do you really think they're going to be scared of going to jail? The lack of legal help is driving people to these makjang states;;;
