Korean Cops: “Raped? Not Our Job”
Disgusting case of Seobu cops ignoring a family’s report on their teenage daughter being reportedly raped by a 30-something year-old ajosshi.They said it wasn’t in their jurisdiction and sat on it for three days before handing it over to the Ilsan police, who took swift action and arrested the guy.

This on top of the cops ignoring the Korean-American guy being beaten by a gang for protecting his wife from being raped by them.

Seoul Audiences: or, How to Buy Seats for a Classical Music Concert in Seoul, and What I’ve Seen of Late
From GordSellar.
– Concerts in Korea tend to play more conservative music (nothing beyond 1890)

The people dressed to the nines are the most likely to be rude and loud

Super enthusiasm from the audience, even between movements (and especially if a Korean is soloing)

Comparison to pansori shows, where people are encouraged to have less inhibition and shout encouragement during the performance (sounds like 15th century Globe Theatre)

Buy tickets online, and choir seats are the best
