The group of English teachers who put on Babo-palooza!, a sketch comedy show on December 1 and 2 here in Busan, were brought in for questioning (and released) early this week by the International Crimes Division for violating Immigration and Criminal Law. Pusanweb will be bringing you regular updates and hopefully a Webcast as the situation unfolds. You can also read about the story in the Korean media and in the Blogs. Read more to see the links.
UPDATE: The Korea Herald article. The reporter spoke to both the police and the actors. English Teachers Cross Line.
UPDATE: Corrections to the Korean news article can be read here.
The story has been picked up by the Korean media, and can be read here: Kyunghyang Shinmun (Translation at the Marmot's Hole) Daum News (if anyone is willing to translate this article, please let us know!) NEW Joonang Ilbo- Ajumma-baiting draws attention of Busan police
The Korean blogosphere:
This blogger wrote a positive Review of Babo-palooza! and a commentary on the questioning of the cast.
Daejeon's Sharing Community, Soucis, includes discussion on the arrests in People, Not Space Invaders.
CORRECTION: In the post, the author states:
"The two foreigners producers are now being fined one million won each."
This is not true. The police are still investigating. No punishments have been given yet.
The Marmot's Hole has a summary/translation of the Kyunghyang Shinmun news story. Over at the Scribblings of the Metropolitician is a short blurb about the show.
Finally, Homely Planet, the blog of one of the cast members will have regular updates of what's happening behind the scenes.
