Owner A, who said he has been running a sushi restaurant in Haeundae for 6 years, said, "I had a planned eat-and-run incident on the evening of the 6th.

He said, "I found out that this kind of thing is common these days. Even if it happens, they don't report it because it's bothersome, or the police are passive in responding to the case because the punishment is weak." "A society that tolerates the crime of eating and drinking that makes hard-working self-employed people weak." It shouldn't be an atmosphere."

Person A said to the two men who disappeared, "I will give 100,000 won worth of restaurant use vouchers or department store gift certificates to those who know these people or give a decisive tip." and issued a warning.

In the end, Mr. A showed a strong will to catch the two disappeared men, saying, "Not punishing today's crimes gives courage to tomorrow's crimes."

Netizens who heard the story of Mr. A said, "Do you want to live a precious life because of only 40,000 won?", "You thought you wouldn't report it because it was a small amount, so it's annoying. You're probably a habitual offender", "If you get caught, you can make excuses for knowing that the other person paid the bill." It seems to be," and so on.

On the other hand, the level of punishment is low as it falls under the Misdemeanor Punishment Act.

According to the Enforcement Decree of the Misdemeanor Punishment Act, in the case of free-riding and non-exclusive eating, the penalty amount may be a fine of not more than 100,000 won, detention, or minor fines.
