Lee Jae myung stabbing attack

On 2 January 2024, Lee was stabbed in the neck while holding a press conference at Gadeoko New Airport, during a visit to Busan.

Lee suffered a “one-centimetre wound on his neck” with minor bleeding. Lee was hospitalized at Pusan National University Hospital and was transferred to Seoul National University Hospital in a “conscious state.

The brazen daytime attack shocked the nation and prompted condemnation from political parties and politicians, including current President Yoon Suk Yeol.

Mr Lee, who leads the Democratic Party of Korea, was addressing reporters at a news conference during a visit to a construction site in the port of Busan on Tuesday morning when the attacker reportedly approached him to ask for an autograph.

He then lunged forward to stab the politician with an 18cm (7in) knife which the attacker said he bought online, police said at a media briefing. The attacker was immediately overpowered and arrested.

Videos posted on social media show Mr Lee first collapsing into the crowd and then onto the ground, while several people try to restrain the attacker.

Photographs after the incident show Mr Lee lying on the ground with his eyes closed as someone presses a handkerchief to the side of his neck.

A spokesman for Mr Lee’s party said medical staff suspected an injury to his jugular vein, which carries blood from the head to the heart. Mr Lee would have to undergo surgery “quickly” as they were concerned about further bleeding, the spokesman, Kwon Chil-seung, said.

He added that they saw the attack as “a clear act of democracy destruction”. while Mr Yoon’s office quoted the president as saying South Korea “should not tolerate such acts of violence under any circumstance”.
