MBC

TV show recording and Why I want a kid

Normalised into Indifference: MBC etc.

I think I’m normalised to a lot of the larger complaints made about living in Korea. Complaints like ‘Korea is soooo racist’ and other ones, but I’ll stick to the racist thing here because it’s topical. By topical I’m obviously talking about the video of the naïve and innocent foreigners who admitted to MBC about having sex with Korean women, which in turn encouraged further reporting of rumours about someone’s friend who may have overheard something in a Caffé Bene.

I’ve had a bit of time to think about this, but I’ll keep it short as there isn’t really much to say. I have no doubt that all that was said in the video was true. Whether it was reported on ethically and the footage actually involved the aggrieved is debatable.


Yawn (The Shocking Reality About Relationships With Foreigners)

Almost every popular foreign blog in Korea has reported on the brief MBC documentary on how foreigners are corrupting innocent Korean women. A facebook group has also sprung up to combat this instance of Korean racism, with at least one of the more prominent members belonging to the group which attacked me a few weeks ago for complaining about racism in Korea.
