She added, “Because you weigh nearly 20kg, I feel like my height has decreased by 1cm today, but thank you so much for coming with me. In the future, I will never climb the mountain with you on my back.”.

Hiking in the winter snow is already dangerous, but what made netizens angry is Lee Si Young’s reckless act of going up and down the mountain with a child weighing 20 kg on her back. Netizens expressed concern for the child who was stuck on his mother’s back for several hours and claimed that it was inappropriate for Lee Si Young, a public figure with 3.42 million Instagram followers, to do this. 

Netizens commented, “If you have raised a child, you will know how dangerous this is,” “The child could have been an airbag in a situation where she could fall,” “I know Lee Si Young has good physical strength, but this is too dangerous,” “Reckless people can see this and follow her,” “If this happened in a foreign country, it is an act worthy of being charged with child abuse.”
