Residents at an apartment complex in Busan are coming under fire for demanding that security guards there to bow to them each morning — creating a huge backlash on Korean social media.
The images of the elderly security guards bowing to residents of the complex, including young children, have caused an uproar against residents who are accused of abusing the elderly security guards. Apartment security guards are typically older men in their 50s or 60s who have retired from their previous careers and wish to remain working.
An apartment representative said that they did in fact request the guards to bow to them each morning since September, though said they did it to “prevent any accident during morning rush hour” according to the Korea Times.
Recent cases of abuse against security guards and those in lower positions of work have caused a fierce backlash on social media in the past year against those who have a “higher standing” in Korean society.
