14. SOUNDBITE: (Korean) Lee Jin-eui, parent of a child at the school Cho used to attend:
"I am worried that people will look down on Korea because of this one isolated case. People look down on Koreans as it is. I am afraid that we will be restricted in terms of what we can and cannot do when we go abroad from now on."
The family of the gunman in the Virginia Tech shootings had struggled while living in South Korea and emigrated to the US to seek a better life, a newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The shooter at Virginia Tech University was identified as Cho Seung-Hui, a senior in the English department, who the South Korean Foreign Ministry said had been living in the United States since 1992.
Cho was the only suspect named in the deadliest shooting rampage in modern US history, which left 33 dead including himself.
South Korea's largest newspaper "Chosun Ilbo" reported that Cho's family was poor when they lived in a Seoul suburb and decided to emigrate to seek a better life.
The family lived in a rented, basement apartment, usually the cheapest unit in a multi-apartment building, the newspaper reported quoting building owner 67-year-old Lim Bong-ae.
Police identified the shooter's father as 61-year-old Cho Seong-tae.
Meanwhile, South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun held a special meeting with aides Wednesday to discuss the shooting, as the public expressed shame over a South Korean citizen being identified as the gunman.
It was the third time that Roh has offered condolences since Tuesday.
The case topped the front pages of nearly all South Korean newspapers on Wednesday, which also voiced worries that the incident may trigger racial hatred in the US and worsen relations between the strong allies.
A sense of despair prevailed among South Korean public.
Lee Jin-eui, the parent of a child at the school Cho used to attend expressed her own worries about the impact of the shooting on Koreans.
"I am worried that people will look down on Korea because of this one isolated case," she said.
"People look down on Koreans as it is. I am afraid that we will be restricted in terms of what we can and cannot do when we go abroad from now on," Lee added.
Despite being technically a state of war for decades against North Korea, South Korea is a country where citizens are banned from privately owning guns, and where no school shootings are known to have occurred.
However, it has not been immune from shooting rampages.
In 2005, a military conscript believed to be angered by taunts from senior officers killed eight fellow soldiers, throwing a grenade into a barracks where his comrades were sleeping and firing a hail of bullets.
