Death by Social Murder

Lee Sun-Kyun, one of the actors in that famous Korean movie called Parasite died of carbon monoxide poisoning in his car. Another suicide to add to the growing list in South Korea.

And this is because he was suspected to be a drug user. In Philippines, we have a slogan called “save the user, jail the pusher”. But apparently, it is not the case in other countries. More like ignore the pusher, criminalize the user.

And this my friend is how the society by means of ostracization and stigmatization, bullied the actor to his death.

South Korea is definitely not as fun as in the Philippines. But I would still like to visit this country however one day. 🤭

P.S. picture is obviously not mine.
