There were also stories of people sending “confession texts” to their significant others. At around 6.40am, when the disaster text was sent, they said what they had been hiding in what they felt was a moment of real urgency.
“I feel like something is going on out there right now, but I’m just going to say it. I like you,” and then, after the emergency situation was cleared up, he sent a message saying, “It was a surprise April Fool’s Day planned by the city and me,” and captured the situation.
“The moment I received the disaster text, I put my cat in my bag and ran to the underground car park,” “I live in Gangnam and evacuated by car to Suwon,” and other stories were posted one after another.
“I came to the subway station with my mum, thinking I was going to die,” one person wrote on the Everytime free message board at a university in Seoul.
