E-mart under fire for displaying dead shark in seafood section
By Lee Hae-rin
A large retail store at Yongsan Station in Seoul, has come under fire for a bizarre scene in which a dead, bleeding shark was on display in a photo zone at the seafood section, to provide "a unique experience" for customers, Monday.
In those pictures, a dead shark placed on ice dripping with blood is displayed at the supermarket's seafood section. A Styrofoam box is placed underneath to collect the blood dripping from its tail and a sign is placed on its head reading "Careful, it will bite if you touch it."
In response to the negative customer feedback, the supermarket removed the carcass from display within a day on Sunday and apologized for "preparing an event that is not agreeable to customer sentiment."
