On February 15, 2005, Star News added to the chorus of articles about the upcoming SBS tabloid news show about foreign English teachers:
To white English instructors, the Republic of Korea is a paradise

SBS's 'I want to know that' to report on foreign instructors on the 19th

[Money Today Star News reporter Kim Hyeon-rok]

"To white English instructors, Korea is a paradise for women and bank machine."

SBS's 'I want to know that,' which recently made waves by casting doubts on Yuk Young-su's murder, is digging into the realities of foreign instructors.

The 'I want to know that' broadcast on the 19th, "Is Korea their Paradise? Report on the Real Conditions of Blond-haired, Blue-eyed Teachers" will accuse foreign instructors who habitually break or evade the law due to our mentality of putting English first and racism.

Specific examples are presented. In the course of covering this the production crew confirmed that a foreign instructor who suggested using marijuana to students and also sexually assaulted a middle school student at an English supplementary hagwon was openly teaching students at a different hagwon.

Producers describe foreign instructors you can meet who openly say things like 'Korea is like a paradise where you can easily make money and enjoy the women,' and 'Korea is an ATM.' Producers also describe how a post titled "How to lure little Korean girls," which tells how to harass minors, caused a stir when it was posted at a foreign instructor job site, but similar things actually happen at some English hagwons.

Producers said, "We can no longer neglect the social side effects spawned by an overheated and distorted obsession with English education and the racism within us which is overly generous to blue-eyed westerners but looks coldly upon Southeast Asian foreign workers," and painted a picture of the dark aspects of our society which has spawned racism and a mentality of putting English first.
We've almost reached the broadcast of the show; just one more post and we're ready to go.
