- In a trial that took place on Wednesday, March 16, a 64-year-old woman was sentenced to seven years in prison by the Supreme Court of South Korea for the death of her son.
- The incident took place in August of 2020, when the son, who had been staying at the temple to study for a public servant exam, allegedly threatened to leak information to the public regarding issues within the temple.
- According to CCTV footage of the incident, the mother beat her son over 2,000 times with a stick for around two and a half hours: the son died of internal bleeding.
- The courts dismissed the original murder charges, stating that the mother was unaware her actions would lead to her son’s death.

When I was in middle school, my mother was eager to know how I did on an important math test. When I called her that I had failed the test, she was waiting for me at home with a feather duster ready to unleash her wrath on me. It was a beautiful beating and she beat me with all the love she had that night. It’s no secret how much Asian parents value academic excellence.
Fortunately, it appears that not all Asian parents are extremely hung up on how their kids perform at school. A twitter user by the name of Hannah Cho provided this when she tweeted a reply she got from her month after she “failed” her exam (she actually got a “B”, but anything lower than an “A” is just as bad as an “F” for Asian parents).
