Not a good week for foreigners in Korea playing outside of stereotypes. Particularly in Itaewon, this past week.
A certain Itaewon restaurant was chosen as a setting for a Korean music video shoot for Woo-il, a former singer from the Korean group, 5tion (pronounced as ‘Ocean’ in Korean). Pretty Korean actress, Han Soo-Ah, was involved in one scene, when suddenly a drunk foreigner approached her and tried to touch her, before he was able to be blocked by video production staff. A small argument ensued and the foreigner was heard saying “Don’t hold me”, “She’s cute”, and “She has a nice body”. The video production was delayed for an hour until the foreigner left.
Han Soo-Ah took it in stride, however, saying “It could happen if you are drunk.” and got back to work with filming the rest of the music video scene.
No word on which restaurant this took place in, nor the nationality of foreigner. However, Woo-il recently posted a teaser of the video involving Han Soo-Ah, but the restaurant scene doesn't appear to be in the teaser version. Will update again, once the longer version is out. Just wondering which watering hole they used for a setting.
