Korean woman throws cash on a downtown square, but no one dared to pick them up

  • A woman threw 2-M won in bills on a downtown square in Seoul
  • However, the passersby completely ignored the money and just took some pictures
  • It turns out, it is illegal in South Korea to pick up unattended money
  • The woman revealed she actually wanted to donate all the cash to willing strangers

SEOUL, South Korea – It was a strange sight probably seen nowhere in the world except, perhaps, in South Korea.

A woman threw money all over the Seoul Square, but no one has attempted to pick them up. The passersby completely ignored the scattered bills on the pavement, except for some who stopped to take a glance and some photos of the scene.

It turns out, picking up an attended money in South Korea could hold anyone criminally liable for theft, as explained by The Korea Herald.

According to the Seoul newspaper, a 56-year-old woman threw the bills amounting to 2 million won ($19,030) on the streets in the capital’s business district around 5:00 pm on Monday.

However, the scene did not cause any major disruptions despite the large amount of cash lying on the concrete waiting to be picked-up by anyone interested.

Only the police who later responded to the scene were forced to pick the scattered money. (Click here to read more)
