Supreme Tweeter - Capital punishment in South Korea - Netflix
Capital punishment is a legal penalty in South Korea. As of 2017, there are at least 300 people in South Korea under a death sentence. Executions are carried out by hanging. On February 19, 2016, the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence passed on a man known by the surname 'Lim', a 24-year-old conscripted Army sergeant who killed five fellow soldiers and injured seven others in a shooting rampage near the border with North Korea in 2014. He became the 361st person on death row in South Korea. According to Yonhap, of the 361 people on death row, 45, including Lim, were soldiers.

In February 1998, then-president Kim Dae-jung enacted a moratorium on executions. This moratorium is still in effect as of 2013. Thus, executions in Korea are considered to be abolished de facto. The last executions took place in December 1997, when 23 people were put to death. However, there are still at least 60 people with a death sentence, as of 2013. In 2010 the Constitutional Court of Korea ruled that capital punishment did not violate “human dignity and worth” in the Constitution of the Republic of Korea. In a five-to-four decision, capital punishment was upheld as constitutional. Institutions such as Amnesty International considered this a ‘major setback for South Korea'. Later in 2010, Justice Minister Lee Kwi-nam alluded to a possibility of resuming executions. In 2013, three bills which proposed abolishment of the death penalty lapsed at the end of the National Assembly’s term. Executions are still a matter of debate. People have called for executions for violent crimes, especially those involving rape of minors.
