If you have ever had to deal with lousy service or couldn’t get anyone to listen to your complaints about a product, you might have raised a fuss and your voice; you probably wouldn’t have done what a guy did in Korea after he was fed up with his cell phone service.

A man in his 40s, upset with his cell phone service, drove a Mercedes Benz into the front door of the head offices of SK Telecom. Kim, 47, plowed the Mercedes S500 into the lobby of the SK Telecom office in Euljiro 2-ga in Seoul at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. No casualties were reported but a revolving door was seriously injured. The car was registered to Kim’s friend.


According to witnesses, Kim parked the car in front of the building and hung signs that said “Delinquent SK” on the windshield and rear window. He then tried to enter the office on foot. But when a guard asked him to move the car, Kim said, “I’ll move the car but you should be careful.” He then smashed the car into the lobby. Police say Kim was not drunk at the time.
