Since the incident, people all over the Internet have been commenting on the video and subsequent news stories and blog posts, offering their criticisms and opinions. There was another news story of a guy in Masan being refused entry onto a bus, most likely related to the earlier Seoul incident. The effects of that one video are trickling down to other areas of Korea, and it remains to be seen how it will play out in the weeks and months to come. With a large influx of foreigners expected to travel to Korea for in the next few years for the 2012 World Expo and the Winter Olympics in 2018, now is not the time for a bigger wedge to be driven between Koreans and foreigners. There was even a commercial on television recently aimed at encouraging Koreans to speak to any foreigners they may encounter, rather than hiding from them. How much could we guess that the video of the black man attacking Koreans on the bus had more social impact?
Here's both videos for you to compare. I will tell you now, the first video is not to be taken lightly. And the comments on it span the gamut of emotions, so read through them carefully.
