Kim Hye-bin (20), a victim of the Bundang vehicle rush and weapon riot, passed away on the 28th after 25 days of life-sustaining treatment. Kim’s bereaved family left the words, “There will be people like the second and third Hyebin, so will we do the same then?” In the MBC PD
notebook aired on the afternoon of the 29th, Kim’s mother said, “Beyond her resentment, anger arises. She also supports evil. If this had happened a few years ago, we should have taken precautions, prepared countermeasures, and prepared support plans, but nothing has changed much between then and now,” she said. She continued, “Will the victim or the victim’s family continue to be an unfair person?” She continued, but was outraged by the reality of the crime with an abnormal motive (don’t ask the crime) that was virtually neglected. Kim’s mother, who burst into안전놀이터 tears at the end, said, “She wants to feed Hye-bin some rice, and she wants to buy Hye-bin’s favorite dessert. And she’s sorry (I want to say). In that painful moment, she must have thought of her mother and father, but she wants to tell her that she is sorry that her mother and father could not be by her side,” she said.
Kim’s bereaved family released the name and photo of her only daughter, Kim, saying, “Please remember the victim rather than the perpetrator.”
Mr. Kim was on his way home from a part-time job at an academy on the 3rd, as usual, when the suspect in the incident, Choi Won-jong (22), was hit by a vehicle he was driving right before the riot with a weapon, and he suffered brain death and received life-sustaining treatment.
The bereaved family emphasized that as this incident was a terrorist attack, they needed explanations and help from the state and investigative authorities.
Like Kim, Lee Hee-nam, a woman in her 60s who was hit by a car driven by Choi Won-jong, died on the 6th, three days after the incident. It is not terrorism,” he said.
In addition, Kim’s bereaved family mentioned the lack of support and systems for victims, such as medical expenses.
The hospital bill, which amounted to 13 million won six days after Kim was hospitalized, is now known to reach 30 to 40 million won. In addition, it was decided to support the bereaved family with 3 million won in living support and funeral expenses.
However, it is said that the procedure is complicated and the subsidized living expenses are not enough to guarantee the payment of treatment expenses.
Meanwhile, the prosecution determined that Choi Won-jong was not in a weak state of mind and body.
Choi Won-jong searched the Internet for mental and physical weakness before committing the crime, and considering the fact that he had considerable academic and programming skills, he was fully aware that his actions were wrong.
Choi Won-jong is accused of driving a vehicle towards pedestrians in front of AK Plaza department store in Seohyeon-dong, Bundang-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do, which is connected to Seohyeon Station on the Suin Bundang Line, at 5:56 pm on the 3rd, and then grabbing a weapon from the car and wielding it at citizens . As a result, two innocent civilians were killed and 12 others were injured.
