Welcome back, fellow humans 🙂
Have you heard about The Elevator Killer?
The Elevator Murder is a terrifying Korean urban legend about a 19-year-old girl named Haruko who was attending college in the main city. She decided to stay up late in the library to complete her assignments and returned home late in the evening. The darkness of the night made her feel uneasy when she walking to the old building where she resided. She stepped inside and pressed the elevator button labelled the “14” to get to her floor. Just as the doors were closing, an attractive young man rushed in and stopped the elevator and stood beside her. Then, he pressed the button labelled “13.”
He asked if she lived on the 14th floor and Haruko replied “Yes.” They both stood in silence, she could not resist staring at this impressionable stranger. He caught her looking at him, shyly she smiled at him. The elevator doors opended at the 13th floor, he got out and said, “See you, later,” to which she responded, “Yes, see you.” As the doors of the elevator were closing behind him, suddenly the man pulled out a knife and said in a disturbing voice, “Upstairs,” then he darted towards the stairs.
The girl was distressed, she tried to press all the buttons but the elevator began to rise to her floor. The doors opened on the 14th floor where the menacing man with the knife stabbed her to death in the elevator. The saddening part of this incident was the utter helplessness she felt in between the two floors where she was confined to be butchered mercilessly by a stranger.
