Remember the nuts gate in Korea? At the end of 2014, Zhao Xiane, the successor of Korean Airlines, arbitrarily demanded the return of the plane just because he was dissatisfied with the nuts provided on the plane, which caused a great international stir.
Nowadays, things like this kind of bullying, executives brutal treatment of ordinary employees, once again in South Korea, and the nature is even worse. This time, Yang Jinho, chairman and CEO of Hankook Mirae Technology, a well-known Korean robotics technology company, was the protagonist. The company has attracted global attention for building the worlds first giant manned robot Method-2.
According to a video released by a team of investigative journalists on Tuesday (October 30), the Korean Times reported that Yang not only slapped an employee twice in public, but also asked the employee to kneel down and apologize, and after kneeling down, he still expressed dissatisfaction and hit the employee severely on the back of the head.
In public violence, forcing employees to kneel down to apologize
Video is also requested to be kept for remembrance.
Reported that the video report was made by Korea NewsTapa and its investigation team Shelock. In the video, a former employee of WeDisk, an online file-sharing website in South Korea, followed Yang Jinhao, the companys largest shareholder, into an office full of white-collar workers.
There, Yang Jinhao condemned the employee in front of all employees because he had left critical comments on the bulletin board of the companys website. Subsequently, Yang Jinhao, who was very angry, slapped the IT developer twice in a row and asked him to sincerely apologize.
For privacy reasons, the name of the employee was not revealed in the video. Video shows that after being slapped, the beaten employee had to kneel down to apologize. Yang Jinhao hit him on the back of the head again and asked him to apologize more sincerely.
According to reports, Yang Jinhao is not only the chairman of Hantai Future Technology Company, but also the largest shareholder of Filenori, another online document contribution website, besides WeDisk. In the video, Yang Jinhao did not accept the mans apology. No one in the office stood up to try to stop Yangs action and sat quietly in his seat staring at his computer screen.

It is reported that this video was taken in April 8, 2015, and is located in the office of WeDisk in Potang District, Chengnan city. The filmmaker of the video was an employee of the company, who was filmed in accordance with Yang Jinhaos instructions, with the aim of keeping it as a souvenir.
NewsTapa recently received an anonymous report on the video. It is reported that in February this year, after resigning from the company, the victim in the video imitated Yang Jinhaos name and took an ID name on the network and commented on the companys public message board. It said, If every employee works hard every time, he would raise his salary and if he (Yang) can show leadership to his subordinates, that would be great.
According to NewsTapa, Yang Jinhaos brutal nature has long been evident, both inside and outside the company, and his attitude has always been the same. The media also said that in the next few days, they will publish more video reports.

Most people are not familiar with HANKOOKs future technology.

According to the report, Hantai Future Technology Co. announced that it had developed the worlds first giant biped manned robot. The robot is called Method-2, which costs US $200 million to build.

But this rare global reputation seems to have been dragged down by this exposure of violence.
Superiors bullying people
In Korea, society is quite common.
In fact, bullying by bullying bosses or top managers at work is very common in Korean society.
A woman, nicknamed Kim Xuaner, once described to the Korean Central Daily how she was often bullied by her superiors in her daily work. The 28-year-old said she was under tremendous pressure at the thought of going to work because she had to endure frequent bullying and verbal abuse from her superiors.
Kim Sun Ah works in a small architectural design company. She said that although mistakes made by powerful families or well-known business people are widely reported in the media and strongly condemned by the public, it is absolutely impossible for ordinary employees who have to support their families and live within their means to say such things to the outside world if they happen in less well-known companies.
Kim Sun Ah said that the world is different for Koreas Gap and Eul.
Gap and Eul were originally two traditional Korean contract terms, namely the nail side and the second party. In todays Korean society, Gap is used to refer to superiors who have greater power in enterprises, while Eul refers to inferiors who are in a weak position. And Gapjil is used to describe the ways in which superiors abuse their subordinates.
This phenomenon is very common in Korea. A survey conducted by an online job portal found that 97% of respondents said they had experienced bullying by their superiors to varying degrees, including temper disorder, arbitrariness and unfair treatment.
Mainly because Korean society is very rigid, bullying subordinates in the same company is considered a trivial matter, and such practices tend to extend to the harsh treatment of contractors and even employees of subsidiaries. A sociology professor said that similar behavior would not be prevented or suppressed, especially in business circles, as well as in large chaebols or family businesses.
With the exposure of nut gate incident, South Korean legislators are also trying to solve this problem. A lawmaker has proposed a bill to prohibit members of the plutocrat family from working in the company for a period of time once they are convicted of a crime. Experts believe that the reform measures implemented by the chaebol itself and the deep reflection of the high-ranking people on this are of vital importance to promoting a more equal society in South Korea. They advocate a two-pronged approach to change this situation. On the one hand, the management power of Koreas big chaebols is concentrated in a few hands. This distorted ownership structure needs to be changed. At the same time, the serious problem that Gapjil will damage national competitiveness and tarnish the image of Korean enterprises at home and abroad has arisen. We need to reach a social consensus.
