Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Lee Guk-jong, the South Korean doctor who performed surgery on a North Korean soldier shot multiple times while fleeing across the border in 2017, says he has been the victim of bullying by hospital management.

Lee, who is credited with saving the life of former North Korean soldier Oh Chong Song, can be heard in a recording leaked to the press being subject to strong verbal abuse, local television network MBC reported Monday.

According to MBC, the man who calls Lee offensive slurs is Yoo Hee-seok, director of Ajou University Medical Center.

Kind of an odd story to find one on bullying AND, this is the doctor apparently,  who helped save the life of a North Korea soldier who ran for his freedom across the bridge and got shot for it.

But the rest of the article makes it a bit clear that the Doctor got bullied for saying the hospital's facilities were not all up to snuff.  And I'm sure Korean or South Korean culture has its nuances. Interesting take.
