The woman, surnamed Kim, 36, runs a logistics firm in Gangneung, Gangwon Province.

She reportedly had a drink with her husband and they argued about her business.

Kim, heavily drunk, then asked for the car key to go home, but her husband refused, telling her to use a chauffeur service.

Kim then poured gasoline over herself and set it on fire.

During the commotion the fire was also transferred to a couch nearby


Her husband immediately extinguished the fire, and she was taken to hospital.
