I feel so sad for the three-month old baby. I bet those parents are young and don't know a thing.

I do think what happened to that child was horrible but I am not going to go as far as to say that they didn't deserve to be parents. We are limited to what we can know about this case. These people did feed their child [once a day]...which I agree is not enough but the fact that they did rush back from the cafe to feed her and also they were the ones who called the cops when they realized that their child had died...doesn't that show that they did care about her. Even if it wasn't enough, they did care. Also, them using virtual/alternative reality as an escape, don't we all do this, too, from time to time? Maybe not to this extreme but still we all do at times whether it's daydreaming, fantasizing or playing games, etc. These people for all we know could have been suffering from depression from losing their jobs. So, although I know what they did was bad but I don't think they were horrible people. They didn't have any ill intentions towards their daughter.

I just thought it might be fair to bring up a different perspective.

Also the father afterwards said this


“I’m sorry to my daughter and hope she doesn’t get sick in heaven,” the father was quoted as saying by Yonhap.

I guess they don't have enough money for their "REAL" baby.

Real baby needs 10,000 USD to raise (just in US)

Virtual baby = Internet + Computer + Electricity / go to the cafe which is cheaper and won't cause you any trouble when they reach puberty/rebellion stage lol

I'm just kidding

Poor baby but hey, at least they didn't eat him/her.
