Maybe dramas aren't so unrealistic after all...



Saw this top the rankings this morning and I thought holyyyy crap...

Article: More shocking than 'Dogani'...

An SBS show called 'That I Want to Know' featured the story about a man whose fiance disappeared overnight. By investigating the CCTV around her apartment, he was able to find footage of her being forcefully pulled by a group of men while her son from a previous marriage watched on.

He eventually traced her to a mental hospital and discovered that her ex-husband and her son had conspired to lock her up because they were in the middle of dividing their property for their divorce.


Producers investigated the matter further and found that there were entire organizations of brokers and doctors dedicated to throwing perfectly fine, functioning people into mental hospitals against their will. As the law currently stands, someone can be locked in a mental hospital against their will as long as two people (relatives or caretakers) agree and a doctor suggests it's necessary.

People have been abusing this law by throwing in anyone that gets in their way in inheritance and other legal battles.


1. [+187, -1] I got goose bumps watching this... I couldn't even imagine how it must've felt for her to see her son for the first time in five years only for him to drag her to a mental hospital... I remember watching the drama '100 Years of Inheritance' and thinking how could that make sense, how unbelievable... But this just shows that reality is that much worse.

2. [+171, -1] I can't imagine how horrifying it must be for the mother. No matter how sane you are, you have to go crazy being locked up like that..... That son needs help.

3. [+139, -4] Goosebumps... So scary. Makes me wonder if my kids would do the same to me... I truly hope that the mother can overcome her anxiety and spend the rest of her years in peace.

"How is this any different from murder? Thank god she was able to escape them through the help of the show, but that still leaves hundreds, if not thousands more who are still trapped..."

"There's nothing you can't do with money... Money can even overcome the ties of your own blood."

"What's scarier is that she escaped them and filed a lawsuit... but her son is trying to lock her in the mental hospital again."

"I used to think dramas were so unrealistic whenever they featured plots like this but this was happening right before our very eyes..."

"I thought I was watching 'I Miss You' for a second."

well, it does happen in other places too

Greed is an ugly thing. You have no idea what people will do for money until you see it happen yourself.

Those Doctors need to have their licenses taken and be thrown in prison, and it might just act as a deterrence to crimes like this.

This would make a good lifetime movie.
luvey 29th-Jan-2013 05:45 pm (UTC)
my first thought was that show on lifetime "my life is a lifetime movie," where people have experiences that seem so fictional but are true.

O_________O his own mother?! The one that carried him for 9 months in her stomach getting all the fatigue and all those things and give birth to him?! I'm sure as hell he won't be comfortable with his own children later in his life...

Some kids, their sense of self entitlement is really through the roof. Probably thought his mom owed him or something.

Sounds like part of the plot to Suddenly, Last Summer D:
justhyuu 29th-Jan-2013 05:29 pm (UTC)
that's so fucked up, people never fail to make me more and more disgusted
luvey 29th-Jan-2013 05:54 pm (UTC)
greed and entitlement issues makes people do the craziest things. sadly, this happens quite often to the elderly in the states. either mental hospitals or the cheapest nursing homes while the children divide up the estate and leave the parent/parents to rot away with very little care.
secretchord 30th-Jan-2013 05:51 pm (UTC)
that is so true. My mother's mother and my father's father were...well, kind of terrible people, but my parents wouldn't ship them off to a nursing home, even though their health required quite a bit of looking-after. Nope, my parents remodeled the house (twice) so that my grandfather could come live with us (until his death four years later) and then again so that my grandma could live with us (until her death six months later).

Despite whatever faults my parents have, disloyalty and ingratitude is certainly not one of them. They can rest assured that I'll do everything in my power to take care of them when they get to the point of needing it.
jorge_callas 29th-Jan-2013 05:56 pm (UTC)
That's really scary. It's funny how government frameworks, a few pieces of paper can change the reality of a person's life. It's good that she was discovered but like that netizen said there are so many more who are trapped. They really should change the laws around entry to a mental hospital.
