Fascinating article about targeting foreigners in Korea…

ScreenHunter_01 Jun. 18 21.26From my brief scanning of the article titled “How the Ugly American Ate the Ugly Duckling“, I thought I’d bookmark this for future reference because it has some interesting stats and observations of how foreigners are treated in South Korea.  While it’s a somewhat defensive opinion piece on Koreans targeting foreigners, I’d have to agree with many of the tenets of the piece and come back to this to reread what the author wrote.   I just wish they had more sources (a bit better citing) and who the author was.

    This article has to be a joke.

    “An example of this process was recently observed in Korea. Having one of the most homogenous country’s in the world (Korea has virtually zero minority groups), its usual targets of blame are western outsiders – American troops, foreign business persons, religious missionaries, and English teachers. Each of these groups have been earmarked for removal at one time or another – especially when the economy slumps or at times of chaotic social change. ”

    As someone going to Korea in a month to start teaching English and find some sound advice, I find it difficult to comprehend why a fellow English “teacher” would post an article of someone who obviously has no control on the English language.

  3. Interesting article, thanks for sharing that.
