A Korean woman from Seoul’s Gangbuk District ripped off both of her husband’s testicles after he repeatedly ignored her requests to assist with the housework. The 39-year old man from was rushed to hospital with his scrotum torn open after his wife launched the unexpected attack.
The mother-of-one grabbed hold of her husband’s testicles and pulled violently during the argument. The man’s left testicle was completely torn from his scrotum after the skin was ripped apart, while the right testicle was so seriously damaged in the attack that doctors had to remove it. Following the incident, the woman was reported to have said she did not know her own strength, adding that her husband deserved what had happened to him. She said: “He had been out with his colleagues again and came home drunk on soju. I just asked him to help me wash the dishes because I had to feed the baby, but he declined and passed out on the couch. The next morning I opened the curtains and told him to go out and do some work, or at least to help with the household chores but he shouted that I’m not entitled to give him orders. I told him he was not any kind of man and I grabbed his testicles.”
“It was not my fault that he pulled away, and that’s when it happened. I thought maybe that some ice would solve the problem, but he insisted on calling an ambulance. To be honest, I think it was a complete overreaction.” The woman declined to accompany her husband to the hospital, and instead remained at the house where she continued with her preparation of kimchi. “On the plus side, his balls added an unexpected depth of flavour to the dish.”
