I'm no longer required to whine about Korea on my own, I have found copious resources online for more effective bitching.
Interestingly enough, there's an interesting site here about anti-foreigner comics in Korea.

In Korea's defense, I just happen to hate it here. The only reason I came is because i'm half Korean. For every person like myself that hates it here, i'm sure there are 3 or 4 people who don't mind it. You might (and statistically it's likely) be one of those people ;-)

James! I googled your name trying to get to your facebook so I could find what note you had posted about the wire awhile back. (Strange, I know...)I just finished the 4th season and I wanted to see what you had posted. (didn't look before out of a desire to avoid spoilage.)
But anyway, I read through some of the blog and I have to say, a lot of the shitty things you mention about Korea are alive and well here in China.
I think a difference though is a much greater 'love' of foreigners.
It helps keep the spitting, bumping and dirtiness at bay for me.
But yeah, that and China is so fucking huge you can travel out to the western plateaus, the grasslands in the north, jungles in the south. All that keeps me going too...
