With North Korea's threat of war looming over the country, 112 is receiving an explosive number of calls asking what will happen in the event of a war.
On March 14th, the Kyungnam Police revealed that they have been receiving an influx of calls and texts from the 11th through the 13th since North Korea declared the 1953 armistice invalid. They've received a total of 800 texts in total thus far.
The questions range from innocent inquiries like "Is North Korea stronger or is America stronger?" and "Where will North Korea shoot their nuclear weapons?" to pranks like "Will I be drafted as a student soldier in the event of a war?" and "Is our country screwed if we go into war?"
Most noted, however, are questions from teens and elementary/junior high school students who are calling by asking for a certain celebrity to be saved. "Please save our INFINITE oppas first if we go into war."
A representative said, "We've been receiving 300-400 calls a day and we're afraid that it's going to interfere with our work. We're trying to calm everyone but students are spreading groundless rumors that are causing more unrest. The schools need to talk with them about this."
South Korea is practically on the brink of war with North Korea and the first thing on anyone's mind is "OH GOD, NOT THE INFINITE/SHINEE/SUJU/BIG BANG/EXO/2PM/ETC OPPAS" ? And you ask why we rag on fangirls so much.
EDIT: It gets better. Apparently, crazy Inspirits had been calling so much, the police stations began to bitch at Woollim Entertainment to do something about it. This in turn leads us to a tweet from Woollim Entertainment pleading for the fans to shut the fuck up and stop bothering the police.
INFINITE 팬 여러분들께 알립니다. 앞으로는 이런일들이 발생하지 않도록 자제 부탁드리겠습니다.news.kukinews.com/article/view.a…Translation: Ayo Inspirits, we're gonna need you to calm your fucking titties. Pull shit like this again and we're postponing Infinite's comeback 'til you behave.
