Most Filipinos in Korea are used to the discrimination they receive from the people in their host country. But it’s a totally different thing when you’re discriminated in your own country by people you receive and treat as guests. It isn’t just ignorance, it’s pure bad manners to do so.
I haven’t seen the same thing here in Korea. But, I’ve read from an english forum here that there’s a “whorehouse” that doesn’t accept foreigners as well as a few restaurants that have “No Nigerians Allowed” signs on their doors. I don’t know what they have against Nigerians but I’m aware that foreigners here think that Koreans are xenophobic.
If I’d see a “No Filipinos Allowed” sign at an establishment here, I wouldn’t really care. They don’t deserve my presence 🙂
The four Koreans, who were identified as Lee Tai-woo, Choi Young-wook, Cha Yun-bok and Park Why-whang, were arrested on May 17 inside their shop. They face deportation charges for being “undesirable aliens”.
Cebu City councilors, in their resolution, castigated the foreigners for humiliating the wife of the city’s chief executive. According to them, if the Koreans could refuse service to Mrs. Osmeña, then they could do it to anybody.
