A man involved in the planning of the K-Pop concert where 16 were killed after falling through a grate in Seoul on Friday was found dead of an apparent suicide early Saturday morning, the AP reports. He had been questioned by the police about the incident on Friday and allegedly jumped from a 10-story building.
Sixteen people fell 65 feet to their deaths at an outdoor pop concert in Seongnam, South Korea today after the ventilation grate they were standing on collapsed. According to the Associated Press, 11 more people are seriously injured. Concertgoers were watching 4minute, a K-pop girl group, when the grate collapsed.
Last night, most of us went to bed in a world where pudgy Korean rapper and viral sensation Psy was globally beloved for bringing us "Gangnam Style," the "Macarena" of 2012. But this morning we woke up to a different world — a colder, darker world — in which the internet was afire with the claim that Psy had performed at an anti-American concert in Seoul in 2004, where he rapped: "Kill those fucking Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those fucking Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers/Kill them all slowly and painfully."
