Still, I wonder if the typical response to their barrage wasn’t a harrassing cell phone message, but perhaps something more reasonable, such as the huge amount of criticism expressed over blogs, newspapers, and other legitimate sources. Once again, offer the most inflammatory and extreme examples to typify an entire community’s response. Bascially, the response from foreigners was summed up by either simplistic remarks, foreigners completely agreeing with the paper, or harassing the reporter in a sexual way.
No one out there had any other response? No one mentioned statistics? Or lack thereof? Or the human rights report? Or Ban Ki-Moon’s own agreement that HIV testing as a response to these reports is a human rights violation? The sheer non-newsworthiness of all this business? Anything?
Leave it to the Chosun Ilbo to mention none of the real issues, typify the foreigner response with extreme or simply dumb examples, and report that strange, random web sites that supposedly we foreigners are reading to seduce Korean women have any standing in the foreign community, while completely ignoring the responses from the many sites that actually DO.
