Annoying Things About Korea #15: Demos For Nothing

:

Do You Know What This Demo Is All About? Me Neither. Cool.
This is one of the dumbest things I have ever seen. Does even a single person at this demonstration have even the slightest idea of what Occupy Wall Street is? Does anyone understand why there is such angst in the United States regarding the financial industry? Lastly, does anyone in Korea have any idea of the different sides of the arguments that even exist?

Let me tell you the answer to the first question: doubtful.
Let me tell you the answer to the second question: doubtful.
Let me tell you the answer to the third question: doubtful.

Now, we can make all sorts of statements regarding whether or not those demonstrating in the United States are justified in the least. I promise you that it isn’t as lopsided as the Kool-Aid distributors would have you believe. In fact, we can have a filibuster just by going back and forth on this single topic.

Please oh please send me some video clips of the protesters. I promise that no one will be able to articulate why they are there.

If that isn’t an Annoying Thing About Korea, then nothing is. Unfortunately, it won’t be the last time it will occur.
