It is a real-time e-news that looks at the news that has become a hot topic on the Internet overnight.



I have seen many articles that the video of the arrest of rapper Yong-Jun Jang, who was charged with assaulting a police officer for refusing to take a breathalyzer, was released in court.



The prosecution released a video of Jang's arrest at the Seoul Central District Court yesterday (24th) on charges of violating the Road Traffic Act.



In the video, Jang refused to take a breathalyzer test, swearing at the police, saying, 'I didn't drive.'



It also includes the scream of a police officer who was hit in the head after getting Jang into a police car.



It is said that Jang made a statement at the investigation agency to the effect that he accidentally bumped into him while struggling with handcuffs at the time of the incident.



However, the police officer who had been hit in the head appeared as a witness at the trial and stated that he thought that Jang's attacks were intentional because he had been hit twice in a row.

A survey found that 8 out of 10 foreigners had a positive evaluation of Korea's national image, and for the first time in Japan, the positive evaluation was higher.

In 7 countries including Vietnam, Turkey and the Philippines, more than 9 out of 10 people rated Korea's image positively.



In Japan, the number of positive evaluations rose by 7.4 percentage points to 35%, up 7.4 percentage points from the previous year, and K-pop and modern culture such as movies accounted for the most at 22.9% as factors that affected the positive image.



Six Hallyu stars were included in the top 10, including BTS, Black Pink, and Lee Min-ho, among Koreans who had a positive impact.



It is said that it is the first time since the 2018 survey that positive evaluations of Korea outweighed negative evaluations in Japan.

Recently, I was informed that there was an elder abuse case at an elderly care center in Gimcheon, Gyeongbuk, and 7 workers in the facility were fined for violating the reporting obligation.



A group of people rushed in and grabbed Grandma's hair and shook it.



It happened on the 29th of last month at an elderly care center in Gimcheon, North Gyeongsang Province, and according to the city of Gimcheon, the head of the facility and the workers should report it to the investigation agency as soon as they learn about the abuse of the elderly.



Earlier, on the 12th, the Gimcheon Police Station arrested the director of a protection center on charges of assaulting an elderly man in his 80s suffering from dementia, and four people including a nursing care worker were also booked on the same charges and are being investigated without detention.



As a result of analyzing the CCTV footage of the facility, the police are expanding the investigation by identifying that there are three more victims. Administrative measures such as suspension of business and cancellation of designation of the elderly protection center are expected according to the results of the investigation.
