Choi Jong-bum’s mausoleum. Choi Jong-bum was a Samsung Service employee repairing home appliances. He committed suicide on the 31st of October, 2013. Before he put an end to his life he sent a public message on the popular app Kakao Talk : “It’s been so hard for me to work as a Samsung Service Center employee. I’ve been starving to death and it’s been tough to watch everyone struggle so hard… I can’t do what Chun Tae-il did (1970s labor activist). But I’ve made my decision and I hope it can be of use.” Cheonan, South Korea. December 2013.
