As free daily newspapers became famous in Korea, a blue ocean was created by people who began to collect these newspapers inside the subways. This is where the controversy begins. Some citizens say these people are like crocodile birds who clean up the left behind papers from the racks.  Others are displeased with these people because they often have bad body odor and push people away to get the newspapers. A solution which might satisfy both sides of this argument is necessary as civil appeals against these people are increasing.

Many people, including this boy cruise around the subway to gather these newspapers to sell.

   
Subway safety patrols often warn people to stop this activity, but there are no regulations to stop these people.

   
They carry these bags to collect newspapers. Four of these full bags are worth around 5,000 won.
