Siwon apologizes for his dog biting a neighbor, leading to her death

On September 30, the CEO of Hanilkwan, an upscale Korean restaurant, got bitten by a neighbor’s dog that wasn’t on a leash. The woman passed away from sepsis six days later, and the dog was revealed to be Choi Siwon’s and his family’s.

On October 21, Choi Siwon wrote an apology on his personal Instagram, saying, “This is Choi Siwon. I bow my head in apology to the bereaved family, who must be going through great shock and sorrow right now. I feel very apologetic for the incident that our family’s dog was recently involved in. I extend my sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased.”

He continued, “As a member of a family raising a dog, I feel a great sense of responsibility. I should’ve kept close supervision at all times, but my carelessness led to a horrible incident and I am deeply reflecting. I will make sure this doesn’t happen again. I apologize for causing trouble. May she rest in peace.”

The older sister and co-CEO of Hanilkwan later stated in an interview, “It’s true that my sister passed away from a secondary infection, along with some other complications, after getting bitten by their dog. However, we decided to forgive them because we were close as neighbors, and loathing them will not bring my sister back.”

She continued, “My sister’s son and I want to mourn her passing quietly. We don’t plan on taking any legal action against [Choi Siwon’s] family. We don’t want to be compensated. My sister’s son is actually around the same age as Choi Siwon. They’re both young. It’s tragic that my sister passed away, but I don’t want to [ruin] the lives of these young people. Choi Siwon visited our family several times to apologize. He even cried at the funeral. I held onto his two hands and forgave him.”

HIV-positive woman arrested for prostitution in Busan


A woman who was arrested for prostitution in August this year turned out to be infected with HIV, according to Busan Nambu Police Station on Thursday.

The 26-year-old woman confessed that she had sold sex to at least 10 men in Busan to pay for the cost of living. She met the men through a chatting app and did not use any protection during intercourse.

The suspect was living with her 28-year-old boyfriend, who brokered the prostitution deals despite knowing that she was infected with HIV.

Police are now trying to track down the sex buyers through the couple’s phone records.

The Return of Superman Ep 202

This week’s episode of The Return of Superman is titled, “Our Sweet Relationship”. Donggook and Sian spend the day delivering steamed rice cakes to their new neighbors. Sam and William visit a cafe made for kids with their friends. While Sam spends time with his foreigner friends that he met in Korea, William has fun with their kids.







We meet a new family that lives in Russia, it's speed skater Victor An and his daughter Jane. She looks like a mix of Sarang and Shoo's daughters to me. That house is soooo nice! Jiyong takes Seungjae to look for eels. He also forgets the cardinal rule when it comes to dinner with Seungjae: do not let him make friends with the food beforehand. Sian and his family move into a new home. Sam and William visit with friends by the river. We've met one of the little kids before...remember that little girl with all those big, gorgeous curls that we saw at a playgroup before?

More adults picking up childhood hobbies


Adult practitioners train at Mooto taekwondo gym in Seoul. Whereas local taekwondo gyms are mostly packed with child practitioners, more gyms now offer adult programs.



Helped by the popularity of YOLO (You Only Live Once) life trend and increasing social acceptance to "kidult" (kid+ adult) culture, more adults are learning hobbies and sports that formerly had been perceived as only for children.

Collapse )



Honestly, none of these hobbies seem very "kid" to me. But maybe in Korea it's different. And Kumon for adults say whattt???? What's your hobby, Omona? I love me a scavenger hunt, and I just signed up for geocaching but haven't started yet.
