Recruiter In Korea

The Honest Truth About Recruiting in Korea

Not again! Foreign teacher gets jail term for harassment

with 4 comments

From the Korea Times.

Of course this happens in Korean society on a daily basis but when it’s a foreigner, it sticks out a lot more and makes all foreigners look bad.  This, not long after the Daegu incident.  They just changed the E-2 regulations to supposedly deter these sickos (which everyone knows is just more BS and paperwork).  Wonder what they’ll come up with now.  AES must be having a field day.

  1. It would be nice to know the name of said criminal. What the Korean government should do is have two separate terms for “foriegn criminals” which separates “Korean foriegn criminals” from “all the other foriegn criminals”. Also, possibly separating “all the other foriegn criminals” into 2 further sub-categories such as “Asian, other than Korean foriegn criminals” and “non-Asian, non-Korean, foriegn criminals”.

  2. My guess would be that the “non-Asian, non-Korean foreign criminal” statistics would be so low, that a percentage would be nearly impossible in relation to the true numbers of the other proposed categories.

    That’s just my guess. Any true statistitions out there?

  3. Um, I’m guessing you’re a Korean-Canadian, right? I enjoy your blog and I think you’re a very reasonable person.

    But that’s why you should think, yes think, rationally before running the same ol line that any non Korean individual who happens to be non Korean and commits a crime of any kind automatically justifies more visa restrictions for foreigners, etc etc because Koreans ‘of course’ are entitled to look upon it in a worse way although their own commit far more crimes relative to their own native population.

    Korean nationals abroad have a pretty horrendous record.Their crime rates pretty much outstrip what you’d expect to be the level of crimes committed for their numbers.

    I was truly surprised to find out how many Koreans not only live illegally in the US and Canada but have actually justifed it in the US by proudly declaring their ‘struggle for human rights’.

    Personally to me an opportunistic Korean overstaying their visa or entering illegally having to come from the other side of the world is just that – a criminal who broke another country’s law.

    Korean students are also notorious in western countries for a sizeable minority engaging in prostitution. Do you think Koreans should object if we start to engage in special restrictions on Korean college/university student numbers?

    Do you think that the murderer of Korean ethnicity who gunned down fellow students at Virginia Tech and his Korean ethnic ‘brother’ who committed a terrorist act recently elsewhere in the US should mean that Koreans are subjected to special Immigration controls?

    Other examples are the human trafficking rings in the Philippines, Thailand, Japan and other parts of Asia as well as in western countries run by Koreans. Murders and assaults (sexual and otherwise) committed by Koreans outside Korea are likewise higher than they should be for the numbers.

    Is it really the role of the world’s peoples to make exceptions for Koreans while they are subjected to increasingly xenopohobic publicity in Korea and more and more regulations because of individuals from their countries who commit crimes in Korea?

    When you take a good look at the stats, the crimes committed by non Koreans in Korea are lower than the crimes committed by Koreans in other countries. Take away crimes such as smoking marijuana or using recreational drugs, and the crime rates of foreigners become even lower.

    Do you agree that our countries need to start enforcing greater restrictions on Koreans?

    • I never said that crimes committed by foreigners automatically justifies more restrictions on visa applications. However, that’s the way the immigration authorities see it. Incidents like this is why the restrictions got so much tighter than they were 4-5 years ago. It’s a very small portion of the entire foreigner community but a few bad apples create headaches for the entire group.
