Newsis reported on the 13th that two foreign English teachers working at a university, including a 28 year old Irish teacher, were booked without detention for stealing a soccer trophy from a bar in Itaewon on the 12th after they lost a game between members of a foreigners' league. They were apparently pissed off about losing the game, so they stole it, but were so drunk at the time they don't remember what they did with it. It's not very often you actually see English teacher theft stories reported, which makes sense, as according to these statistics, there have been at most three cases a year. Luckily, Newsis considers the theft of a 200,000 won trophy to be news.
