After becoming famous and becoming a check-in place for young people, the supermarket had to stop displaying shark carcasses due to many controversies.
On July 31, the supermarket next to Yongsan Station, Seoul was the focus of receiving many bricks and stones when displaying a shark carcass in the seafood area. Management said this action is intended to help customers have a more enjoyable experience, as well as serve those who have never seen a shark in real life.
Through the photos that people took and shared quite a lot on social networks, the shark’s carcass was cleaned, neatly arranged on ice for preservation. On the front is a sign that reads: “Be careful, it may bite you”. Looks exactly like a work of art, but a bit cheap.
Accordingly, this is an activity held exclusively at Yongsan E-mart, in addition to displaying shark carcasses, they also introduce dishes made from this fish and exhibit some other marine species. The supermarket also has ready-made shark cosplay accessories such as hats, costumes, etc. so that everyone can take pictures.
However, many people feel disgusted by this action.
“I see that the shark locked in the aquarium already seems quite guilty, it’s not okay to die here”
“God, who wants to take a picture with a shark carcass?”
“Why display the real shark carcass and not the model?” Many residents complained.
This is not the first time this supermarket has been stoned for displaying the carcasses of creatures to attract public attention. From May until now, not only sharks, Yongsan branch supermarket has repeatedly displayed unique creatures such as giant rays, moon fish, striped orange fish, etc. New experiences for customers.
Explaining this action, the supermarket management said:
“The carcass of this shark is for display purposes only, not for sale. We bought it back from the fishermen and these are sharks that do not qualify and should be discarded, as well as the previous fish.”
However, before tons of bricks and stones from animal lovers online, the supermarket was forced to stop its display and publicly apologize, and commit to a thorough survey before organizing any activities. which move.
