Cops having affair injured after jumping from 5th floor of hotel

A male police superintendent and female police sergeant—both in their 30s—were injured after they jumped from a 5th floor hotel window rather than be discovered by a prosecutor who tailed them to the hotel.

The two cops are married. Just not to each other.

According to the Kyunghyang Shinmun, the prosecutors are coming under fire here for tailing the love birds in the first place. Prosecutors usually investigate serious cases of official corruption, not adultery.

The prosecutors, however, are defending themselves, saying adultery harms the dignity of civil servants, and that they plan to punish the couple after getting the facts.

    It was fortunate for them to not to fall on the ground from the height. Could that be 순직(殉職)?

    Had they been watching too many action movies?

    I guess the prosecutors were having a slow day.

    It’s just that moral corruption’s a lot more fun for them to track.

    It was my understanding that you could only charge someone with adultery if their spouse was the complainant. If the spouse does not press charges, they can not be brought. My understanding was that these laws were developed to protect spouses, and having your husband or wife in prison for 2 years may not be in the aggrieved spouses best interest, so they have a final veto over its application. (The law only seems to be applied during divorces.) Either way, I find laws like these, where the state interferes in peoples personal lives, and Korea enforcing laws extraterritorially, in cases such as gambling or drug use overseas, very, very disturbing.

    How romantic! Now they can spend time in physical therapy together.

    And no doubt another new section in the Hallmark aisle.

    madar, adultery often leads to violence. It would be nice if we could all keep a cool head and go our separate ways but it rarely works out that way.

    The prosecutor’s office is deficient in reasoning and bereft of sense.
    Is the chief prosecutor a evangelical or a member of the Moronic Lodge by some chance?

  • babotaengi

    I suspect the prosecutor was just a sex-starved ajumma.

    How romantic they get to spend quality time together in the hospital cast.

    I suspect the prosecutors had runout of pornographic material to “read”.

    “The prosecutors…plan to punish the couple after getting the facts.”

    Unless something has been lost in translation or through the famed competence of local journalists, it’s nice to know that the prosecutors made up their minds to charge these people before the investigation is complete. A vendetta perhaps?

  • R. Elgin

    Someone in the prosecutor’s office has to be an evangelical because this is such a stupidly moralistic and wanton waste of the prosecutor’s resources. Such zealousness serves no practical purpose and is enraging to read about when the prosecutors should be prosecuting gangsters that force prostitution upon women instead. I suppose *that* is beyond their abilities and is too much to hope for.
