South Korean Man Sends 125 Pizzas to Middle School to Thank Students Who Found His Wallet

An entire middle school in South Korea was recently treated to a ridiculous amount of pizza as a reward for a kind act by two of its students.

Kang Tae Won and Han Woong, both students of Seogwipo Middle School in Jeju Island, found a wallet on the street on January 30, AllKPop reports. The middle schoolers were going back home from tutoring when they came across the wallet containing around 300,000 Korean Won ($251) in cash.
