a teacher confiscated this book from a student today. It would appear that he got away with hiding his phone here for the entire day before getting caught in afterschool.

Cultural Disconnect or Laziness or Something Worse

Here is something I continually don’t get. I see it all the time on tumblr and facebook and waygook. But there is this seeming assunption by many foreigners that Koreans are blind to social issues in their country.

How is this even possible? How do people draw these conclusions?

There is a lot of prostitution, dogs are eaten and treated cruelly, housing is becoming increasingly more difficult especially for the elderly. All of this is true. But to say that Koreans turn a blind eye, or prefer not to talk about these things is ridiculous.

Not too mention these things happen all around the world.

But, maybe (and this is just a guess here) Koreans just aren’t talking to foreigners. There is a great deal that I am not told at work and that jas no greater cultural impact. But, I can’t say I blame Koreans for not talking about these issues with foreigners because of all the holier than thou swill I read online.
The mere fact that every time I go ibto Seoul and see a protest taking place shows that people are obviously talking about social issues, and more than that taking action, which is more than I can say for most foreigners, who if memory serves couldn’t rally their “outrage” to stage a practical protest over the MBC report of foreigners dating koreans.

Sometimes I wish bibliographies were required instead of hashtags, and maybe people would be more inclined to do research before posting jingoist, uninformed, cultural superiority complex, bullshit.

Rant terminated.
