Incheon Animals: Spider and Spiderwasp

This set of images are of an act of parasitism. I disturbed the process and I do not know if the spider recovered or died. Spider Wasps paralyze spiders and place a larva inside the spider, which then eats its way out of the spider.
I do not know the species of either the spider or the wasp. I will have English guides for Korean arachnids and wasps later this summer.
The images are not disturbing but the concept is so they are 'under the fold'.

And I saw another pair today
