By Dong Sun-hwa
Police booked three drunken high school students for allegedly bashing two Russian-Koreans in Dangjin, South Chungcheong Province, on Jan. 1, according to JTBC Tuesday.
CCTV footage showed the moment the students assaulted the Russian-Korean father-in-law and son-in-law. When one victim tried to flee, the attackers chased him and kicked him. The attack lasted several minutes.
The father-in-law suffered a serious right eye injury and had an operation in Seoul.
The victims say the attack happened after they asked the students for directions.
"I was horrified and confused," one victim said. "I had no idea of what was going on."
The attackers have not yet graduated high school, but could have drunk alcohol because they legally became adults in "Korean age," Jan. 1.
