A South Korea man has recently been caught on CCTV kicking and damaging the control panel of an elevator inside an apartment complex in Ho Chi Minh City.

The incident happened at around 1:55 am on Wednesday at Phu Hoang Anh Apartment Complex in Nha Be District.

According to the CCTV footage that went viral on social media on Thursday, the man dressed in a white T-shirt and cap walked into the elevator by himself.

He pressed the buttons and there was apparently something wrong with the system, leading to him kicking the control panel twice.

Even though the control panel was displaced following his kicks, the man was seen continuing his ride in the elevator until he reached his floor.

The management board of the apartment complex confirmed that the elevator is located at Block C.

The man seen in the footage was identified as Choi Yong Ho, a South Korean citizen who lives in the condo.

Choi has worked with the management board and apologized for his action.

He was also willing to compensate for the damage.

The control panel was replaced and the elevator resumed its normal operation as of Thursday.
