Man arrested for breaking into JYP headquarters with a knife

A knife-wielding man has been arrested for creating a ruckus at the JYP Entertainment headquarters.

A 34-year-old man, surnamed Choi, passed the first-floor security gate to the JYP Entertainment building in Gangnam, Seoul, on Thursday by closely tailing a company employee, according to police reports.

Thwarting attempts by employees to block him, Choi made it all the way up to the recording room on the third floor, demanding a meeting with the company’s CEO Park Jin-young.

After his request was rejected by a secretary, he threw a 30-cm-long kitchen knife inside the room. No one was injured and the incident was soon settled as the police arrived within 10 minutes.

Choi reportedly vented his anger at JYP Entertainment after receiving no word about a job application he sent the agency.

“I sent in an application to enter JYP Entertainment two years ago, yet I didn’t receive any response or meet with Park ― therefore, I decided to come (to the agency’s building) myself,” Choi told the police.

Police officials are now carrying out an investigation into the specific motives and reasons why Choi was armed when he decided to break into the agency’s building.

It's pretty scary how he was able to get all the way to the 3rd floor even after people tried to stop him. Hopefully they'll step up their security after this. :/
