South Korean parents hire thugs to stop school bullies

South Korean parents are hiring muscular, tattooed men to pose as fake “uncles” to protect their children from bullies at school.

According to local media reports, multiple companies are offering different packages, ranging from $450 to $1,790 a day, to desperate parents to ensure that their children are safe from aggressive classmates.

For the straightforward “uncle package”, a man in his 30s or 40s will reportedly walk the student to and from school and sternly warn bullies off.
