Will the foreigners PLEASE stop molesting, assaulting people at the beach?

Foreigners have apparently been having a tough time behaving at the beach recently.

Last week, the Asia Gyeongje reported that police arrested on Aug 2 two Indians for allegedly touching the gochu of a six-year old boy in a shower stall near Daecheon Beach’s Mud Plaza.

The alleged perps did this after the parents momentarily left the scene. After the incident, the boy told his parents, who alerted the police.

According to the Daejeon Ilbo, the suspects told police that this was how people greeted each other in India.

A Taean Maritime Police official told the Asia Gyeongje that with a string of crimes by foreigners at the beach this season, people needed to take care. He also reminded people that in an emergency, they should call the maritime cops at 122.

He wasn’t joking about the string of crimes by foreigners at the beach, by the way.

In a piece appropriately headlined “해수욕장 외국인 ‘왜 이러나’,” the Daejeon Ilbo notes that prior to the Indians’ arrest, police arrested on July 29 a Thai (30) for using a camcorder to film ladies — well, particular parts of ladies — at Mallipo Beach. According to the cops, despite being told not to film by people around him, he instead approached women and continued filming before someone called the cops.

And that wasn’t all. During the Boryeong Mud Festival — famous, of course, for providing wonderful photos of mud-covered, big-boobied white chicks (some showing more than others, apparently) — there were a number of arrests. On July 24, a Mrs. J (36), the wife of a US soldier, alledgedly assaulted two young Korean women. According to police, J was sitting at the side of the road drunk when a passing Korean woman in her 20s asked if she was OK. J allegedly responded by kicking her in the thigh. She also grabbed the hair of another woman, in her 30s, before police arrived.

J was booked for causing bodily injury.

On July 16, a US soldier identified as Cpl. D (20) drunkenly damaged a car parked near Daecheon Beach. He was booked and turned over to USFK.

Also on that day, an English teacher at an elementary school in Uijeongbu visiting Daecheon Beach for the Mud Festival, identified as Mr P (24), drunkenly ran amok in a nearby restaurant, throwing around a beer crate and some flower pots. When the owner of the establishment protested, P threw a brick at him and ran off. Or so the article says.

You’ll also recall that at the beginning of the month, four foreigners were arrested for molesting female bathers at Haeundae Beach.

    It’s how some people greet other people in prison, as well.

    Omfg what a joke. Yes, pulling on some kid’s penis is disturbing, but it is common for older Koreans to do it to a nephew, or other young family member (lol).
    I forget the Korean phrase, but it’s something like, “has young pecker gotten bigger?”

  • Seth Gecko

    Sorry, forget what I said above.
    My point was that a newspaper reporting on something that is actually a kind of Korean culural greeting, was hypocritical.
    But then I remembered that a few years ago there was a newspaper story about a Korean teacher that was being disciplined for “greeting” a male student in this manner.

    re#4 – Exactly Koreans do it to young boys often (or used to) – always grabbing the boys cock to see how big it is (Korean mothers still do it with their sons in the shower each day, until the son is 12/13 years old) – and the grandparents do it to their grandsons a lot (just like the Mexicans, Chinese, Indians (India) etc.

    I remember the KOREAN man who was walking along the footpath in the USA and noticed a small naked boy playing nude in his own front yard, and the Korean man did the same thing – touched up the boys “chili”.

    The parents called the cops who were going to arrest the Korean man – but the Korean man gave the same excuse “he told police that this was how people greeted boys in Korea”.

    The USA cops did not arrest him after hearing that.

    ^ What a bunch of bullshit.

    You people are really desperate to defend these foreigners.

    ROFL my waffle.

  • http://dok.do/4lur41 Apodyopsis Gymnophoria

    ^ not bullshit like what comes out of your mouth.

    It happened about 8 years ago and I am sure someone will find a link to it somewhere.

    we all know about “Goshigi” you can’t hide that – many foreign male teachers have been “molested” by their young male students.

    Enomuseki must be one of Q’s friends. Just what we need.

    Why can’t that “someone” be you? You’re the one who brought it up. C’mon. Step up, dawg.

    Enomuseki must be one of Q’s friends. Just what we need.

    I see this as a good thing for the denizens of the peanut gallery.

    Attracting Korean versions of China’s reviled fenqing, with their off-topic Japan-bashing, is never good for a blog.

  • JK

    Slim, exactly WHAT off-topic Japan-bashing is occurring? The first person to mention Japan here was YOU. No more projecting, okay, Slim? Only a few days ago, you referred to me as a nationalist (meaning for Korea), and you were wrong about that. http://www.rjkoehler.com/2011/08/04/because-some-people-dont-want-to-be-shinto-gods/

    #10 – Actually it has happened and been reported a couple of times – including on the Army base but….that was a matter of culture. I do not think this practice goes on much any longer. If you look at the photograph studios you will see that a lot of them now cover the baby’s little gochu; tv programs now pixate out the genitals of children and there is more of an awareness of what is not a good touch. As for mothers doing it to their sons in the shower – I have no idea but, again, this would be a matter of culture and has nothing to do with what the Indian men are alleged to have done.

    As to the Indian men – I am more than willing to bet that during her visit to Korea a week or so ago that Indian President Pratibha Patil did not grip LMB’s gochu in greeting.

    It’s only “bad” for a blog to the extent certain denizens of the peanut gallery feel that they need to say something about it. Just scroll down and engage with those you really want to engage with.

    However, I understand that individuals can get bored from time to time. So it’s always nice to partake in little amusement from time to time. Like this below:

    Slim, exactly WHAT off-topic Japan-bashing is occurring? The first person to mention Japan here was YOU. No more projecting, okay, Slim? Only a few days ago, you referred to me as a nationalist (meaning for Korea), and you were wrong about that….

    You’re right, JK. Slim was way off-base. You’re not a nationalist. Just a god damn, fucking moron.

  • Charles Tilly

    Actually it has happened and been reported a couple of times…

    I don’t doubt that. What I was asking for was specific link or citation for the “story” that Apodyopsis Gymnophoria mentioned in comments #6 & #8.

  • JK

    Charles Tilly, you’re still a f*cking idiot. Your mother should be proud.

    I’m sure we’ll bump into each other in DC soon. See you then.

    Idiot.

    Just get a room, you two.

  • slim

    You are an intellectually dishonest nationalist, to boot, JK.

  • JK

    Slim, you believe what you will. I have criticized Korea (TOO many times in my own life in the past) but I also know when certain expats living there, or who used to live there, who have gone too far in their negative generalizations to the point of being ridiculously wrong. When I point out their errors in their overgeneralizing of Koreans (like you did with your bringing up Japan on this thread when no one else did) that does not make me (a Korean-American of US citizenry, born and raised) either “intellectually dishonest” or a “nationalist.” If you don’t get this, then at least you are acknowledging this in front of everyone on this blog and they’ll know not to take you too seriously.

    Why is being a nationalist a bad thing? I am a nationalist and I’m proud of it. I care about my nations and put their interest above and beyond the interests of other nations.

  • Charles Tilly

    Why is being a nationalist a bad thing?

    It’s not. It’s just another rhetorical weapon wielded here at the MH. Ironically, the ones screaming about it smell of it themselves. Plus, nationalism is here to stay; for a lot and a lot of bad.

  • JK

    The Korean,

    Being a nationalist isn’t necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. But to be accused of being a nationalist for a country not your own is kind of ridiculous, no? Are you a nationalist for Germany? Well what if Slim or some other prejudging poster accused you of being a German nationalist? I would think you would correct the person labeling you incorrectly.

    Charles Tilly, how many times do I have to say this: Shut the f*ck up. You idiot.

    Being a nationalist isn’t necessarily a bad thing in and of itself. But to be accused of being a nationalist for a country not your own is kind of ridiculous, no?

    Agreed.

  • Charles Tilly

    Charles Tilly, how many times do I have to say this: Shut the f*ck up. You idiot.

    LuLz! Why? I enjoy being able to toy with like this. Lighten up, tosspot.

  • JK

    I’m having fun with this, Tilly. You’re about two notches higher than Gbevers in the IQ department. Unfortunately, you’re just a bigger *sshole, too.

    See you in 2023 on this and other blogs, Charles.

  • YangachiBastardo

    I should lay off the bottle, i think i’m reading about Indians and Koreans greeting eachother with intimate bits groping, this can’t be…

  • enomuseki

    Apodyopsis Gymnophoria = full of bullshit.

    But I’ve heard better bullshits in my life.

    Try harder, you failure.

    Charles Tilly, you’re still a f*cking idiot. Your mother should be proud.

    Thank you JK (re# 10 & 16)
