Suicide prevention text, once written on the safety railing of Mapo Bridge in Seoul, was removed in seven years because of its negligible effect.

Seoul says it has cleared all the phrases on Mapo Bridge over the last two days.

Mappo Bridge's suicide prevention text was set up in 2012 with Seoul City and Samsung Life's 'Bridge of Life' campaign.

In 2013, after the public contest, the stationery was selected and engraved on the bridge. Immediately after installation, it received great attention, such as receiving the grand prize at the Busan International Advertising Festival.

In particular, are you good at swimming? The phrases on the back have been erased and erased by public opinion.
But among the remaining phrases, 'Do you like jjajangmyeon? Do you like Champon? Controversy has continued as there are phrases that seem far from suicide prevention.

Anyway, if there's any possibility, you shouldn't neglect to come up with preventive measures. Please tell me the next news.
