Saranghae? Not this time!
Alleged customer-snatching at a bitter lup sup bar (“dirty” bar) led to a brawl at the nearby Balestier Bak Kut Teh shop at 365 Balestier Road between a Vietnamese lady and a Korean lady.
Both women are said to be working at the nearby lup sup bar as “hang flower” girls (girls who entice men to buy flower garlands from the bar for them and earn a commission from the sale).
The Korean “hang flower” girl (dressed in black (allegedly snatched a customer from the Vietnamese “hang flower” girl (dressed in yellow).
That incensed the Vietnamese lady and she roped in 3 friends from her hometown to track and beat up the Korean lady.
The incident took place at about 5.30am on Tuesday (12 Jun).
The Vietnamese lady and her friends found the Korean lady having dinner with 2 men at the bak kut the shop and attacked her.
Shop staff tried in vain to stop the chair-throwing, stiletto-flinging and cleavage-swinging scuffle.
The Vietnamese gang of ladies was seen leaving and re-entering the shop several times to attack the Korean lady.
Police officers subsequently arrived and stopped the fight.
Police say that 4 women, aged between 30 and 34 years old, have been arrested and investigations are ongoing.
