An interesting thing happened to Park Rae-gun and Lee Jon-hoe. They were both convicted for trying to help victims of the Yongsan Fire Incident.
Here is the background on the fire incident:
On 19 January 2009, protestors fighting the evictions barricaded themselves inside a watchtower they had erected on the roof of a building earmarked for demolition. They gathered paint thinner and other flammable materials to deter police in the event of an attack.
Early the next morning, police commandos mounted a raid on the watchtower. As police landed on the roof to arrest the protesters, a fire broke out that claimed the lives of five protesters and a police officer.
Things went awry when Mr. Park and Mr. Lee decided to intervene by organizing protests demanding reparations for the victims:
Park Rae-gun and Lee Jong-hoe were convicted for their roles in a campaign seeking justice and reparations for the families of victims who died in a January 2009 fire while protesting evictions from their homes and businesses in Seoul’s central Yongsan district.
So I guess in South Korea, you are given a suspended sentence if you try to help others who are in need of help.
