I'm not sure if the guy was trying to expose himself, but there certainly were plenty of people there to expose him. (Please think of a funnier caption than that.)
Stephannie White quoted the following:
What I always told my soldiers when in Korea is that the best way to stay out of trouble is to avoid places where it would most likely happen, particularly certain university areas such Hongdae especially at night. Also it is best to avoid areas where ajushis are known to get drunk and stupid. A few years back certain students from the Hongdae area were actively looking to provoke an incidents with GI's after their success with the Shinchon Stabbing Incident. It appears it may be the same thing now with English teachers.This, of course, was utter nonsense, as I pointed out:
They "provoked" the GIs to go to Shinchon which is off limits. They "provoked" the guy to bring a knife with him when he went out drinking. And then they "provoked" him to hold it to someone's neck.They had also provoked him to jump on top of a taxi in a fit of rage prior to the knife incident. It seems to me the best way for some people to avoid trouble is to stop hanging around themselves.
That's some mighty skilled provokin'
Ah, crap. Now I'm sounding preachy. And the EW blog is not about preachiness. It's about waygooks exposing themselves.
