A Korean tradition who threw his ex-girlfriend from a balcony on the 23rd floor and insisted that she committed suicide has been imprisoned for 16 years.
June Oh Seo, 38, had pleaded guilty to murder Hee Kyung Choi, 34, in Chatswood in Chatswood in October 2017, after previously maintaining that she committed suicide by jumping off the balcony.
Her body lay in a lane for 12 hours before Seo was arrested after a confrontation with the police when he climbed on a Perspex balcony roof on top of the block.
Mrs. Choi (photo) was known as Emily and HK for her friends, and was murdered by her former friend June Oh Seo, 38, in the Chatswood building in October 2017.

Seo appeared in the NSW Supreme Court on Friday and was imprisoned for 22 years and six months with a non-pooling period of 16 years and 10 months.
Earlier, the Korean father of the victim, Jusuk Choi, described Seo as a & # 39; shameless beast with a human face & # 39;
& # 39; Because of this pain, we only hope that every day of hell passes quickly, so that we can meet our daughter whom we so often miss, & # 39; he said.
"Like many women before her, Choi died because the man she was dealing with did not accept her right to autonomy," the judge said.
& # 39; The crime of the perpetrator is one seen with harrowing frequency. & # 39;
Choi died after falling from the 23rd floor of her apartment building. The police are still not sure how Mrs. Choi fell out of the building

Choi, who worked in the financial sector, and Seo, a painter, started an intimate relationship in March 2017 and traveled to South Korea the following month to meet each other's parents.
She had told her friends that Seo was possessive and controlling and that he did not like being with male friends or customers.
Mrs. Choi later asked him to leave her apartment, which he did on August 13, but they were still in contact.
Seo, who initially said that the police, Mrs. Choi, had committed suicide, pleaded guilty of murder last December.
He has a history of domestic violence and was verbally abusive, physically violent to his ex-wife, Sydney Morning Herald reported.
During the confrontation with the police, Seo said: & Hey, Kyung is dead and when I walk out of here, I get a death sentence & # 39; and & # 39; I'm going to spend the rest of my life in prison … I want to finish myself here & # 39 ;.
