"The story of a white man who came to Korea to enjoy"
To be clear this isn't a comedy sketch, if it was I wouldn't mind. It's totally serious and comments from the creator basically saying "This is a serious issue that needs to be talked about" wtf? And the comments all seem to be agreeing.
"All Koreans love Americans, in Korea I have sex every day"
"I can make any Korean girl fall for me."
"All I have to say is 'I love Kimchi' and they go crazy"
"I feel sorry for Korean guys"
It ends with the Korean housemate getting revenge by sending messages about the they guy's cheating and sex with prostitutes to his hakwon to get him fired. So weird, if it was just a random weirdo making a video I wouldn't care but it's going on a million views?? it's really disturbing tbh how many people seem to agree with this.
Edit: everybody please comment “🤏” on the YouTube video lol. That or something constructive explaining why this video is kind of fucked up.
(*Apparently it wasn't obvious, the point of the symbol is not racist it's one that's long been used by Korean feminists to give a middle finger to incel/toxic masculinity etc.)
Edit 2: apparently I've made some enemies lol: https://imgur.com/a/oNggL0r
Nearly 1 million views, and the Korean creator is calling out the exploitation of Korean women by white males and how white male english teachers in Korea are sexual predators. The creator is saying "This is a serious issue that needs to be talked about" in Korea.
More excitingly, the film explicitly centers on “ASIAN” as an identity, the white male refers to the Korean protagonist as “Asian”, of being “jealous” because he is “Asian”, etc. and differences are talked in terms of race, and not just ethnicity or nationality.
The film is also doing a good job when it comes to commentary on how asian expats (from south east Asia) in Korea (don't) experience privilege compared to white expats.
The film shows a Korean guy whose housemate is a white hakwom english teacher who speaks 0 Korean, and a south east asian dude who speaks fluent Korean / English. It compares their two lives, and portrays multiple scenes of the white english teacher experiencing unfair privilege, as well as his degradation of asian males and exploitation of local women.
Dialogue from the film (English teacher portrayed on hidden camera as saying...):
"All Koreans love Americans, in Korea I have sex every day" "I can make any Korean girl fall for me." "All I have to say is 'I love Kimchi' and they go crazy" "I feel sorry for Korean guys"
Eventually, the korean guy gets the hakwom english teacher fired in revenge.
This film is causing a huge stir among the Whites on the Asian expat subreddits (the Korea one). The white racists there are outraged at this socially critical film. (The racists on that subreddit have a record of touting WMAF, while hypocritically being disgusted by the surge in social media popularity of interracial couples involving AM/WF). The white racists there are outraged and scared at how Koreans and social media are reacting to this short film in agreement, and are getting severely triggered over the Korean comments.
Now, they are all commenting how backwards Korean society is for not being accepting of intterracial relationships. Yet, just mere months ago, they were all barking in agreement at a post there that was bemoaning the popularity of "Interracial Youtubers" / interracial relationships trending on social media (who are nearly all AMWF).
The white racists on that subreddit are also un-ironically encouraging their subreddit base to comment emojis like... keep reading on reddit ➡
