           The scorching heat and irritating dampness of post-rain weather force us to stay on all nerves these days. So, it may not just be imagination even if you think those “impulsive” accidents you often see on TV occur more in the summer. Arson attacks carried out by angered neighbors or murder incidents, although extreme, explain how worse situations could turn out even from trivial causes. And in the center lie noise complaint issues that never seem to disappear. Come to think of it, if the cause is that trivial, why not solve them so easily as well?
           The solution could be very simple if people make less noise and grow more patience. But unfortunately, floor noise issues are quite often brought to surface, in a negative way, as they even lead to extreme results. A well-known case is the “Hanam-si Homicide” where an angry neighbor stabbed an old couple living upstairs as revenge for continuously annoying him with floor noises. Netizens who learned about the case regarded the criminal as “mentally impaired” or as a ”psychopath,” but really, could all the countless number of incidents be explained by a certain evilness in people’s minds? The fundamental reason could be the lack of consideration. Here, it means “mutual” consideration. If floor noise victims endure the annoyance, but culprits do not mind their manners, it cannot make any sense. Likewise, if the noise makers soon regret their mistakes, but annoyed neighbors cannot suppress their anger, it would bear unwanted consequences regardless.

           It would be best if mutual consideration could be the solution to all kinds of floor noise problems, but sometimes there needs to be a harsher regulation than just that. Therefore, another answer to the aforementioned question would be to impose stricter laws than pre-existing ones. The current Korean law on floor noise regulations focuses on the smooth solution of neighborly disputes by requesting help from the Environmental Dispute Resolution Commission. But the problem is, seeking help from such an organization does not hold much efficiency if the noise makers just play innocent. By learning from Germany, where a fine for excessive floor noise possibly reaches up to 640 million won, maybe Korea could also add some enforcement to regulation efforts.
