WORKING TOGETHER: Volunteers distribute posters against violence on women in Chaohu, Anhui Province on November 25, 2008 (XIN HUA)
Kim continued to post pictures of the abuse she suffered. She also wrote messages asking Li to see a doctor. On September 4, Kim posted another picture of a bleeding left ear with the words "Li Yang, you need help."
On September 5, Kim posted the details of the abuse she suffered. "You knocked me to the floor. You sat on my back. You choked my neck with both hands and slammed my head into the floor. When I pried your hands from my neck you grabbed my hair and slammed my head into the floor 10 more times!" she said.
Li didn't respond to his wife's accusations against him until September 10, when he apologized on his micro-blog. "I wholeheartedly apologize to my wife Kim and my girls for committing domestic violence. This has caused them serious physical and mental damage," he said.
In another post on the same day, Li revealed he was accepting medical aid to help him overcome his abusive tendencies.
"We are good couple in most of the time," Li said in an interview with Sina, a popular Web portal. "It is like I am totally out of control when I beat my wife. I think it is a mental problem."
