“This is another racist establishment. We (3 Caucasians) went there Friday night. Immediately upon entering the bar, two guys rushed up, one was almost running towards us, and said: "Korean gay bar, only Koreans". We were shocked and just stood there for a few moments. The guy said "only Koreans, only Koreans".
Well Dorothy, we are not in Kansas anymore (for those who remember the Wizard of Oz) because such blatant discrimination is against the law in the USA and many other countries.
After World War 2 when the Koreans desperately needed the American help and dollar, I am damn sure they were not discriminating against us then. Now that the country is doing well, F.... Americans and all other foreigners.
Gay Pride, bull s.... they should be ashamed of themselves. If Americans and other foreigners had not helped S. Korea, and gays had not fought for freedom years ago, there would be NO Escape Club. They should be ashamed.“
