WATCH: Tourist in Korea attacked just for asking directions?
A video recently uploaded to YouTube is getting a lot of attention for purportedly showing a tourist in Korea being attacked by two men just for asking directions. The video starts off with the sight of a tourist trying live octopus, which is interesting in itself, but not THAT uncommon. But then things apparently take a turn for the worse when the tourist asks directions outside the restaurant from two nice-enough seeming men. Out of nowhere, he's attacked.
While the video has garnered over 700,000 views and comments from Koreans apologizing for the two mens' behavior (as well as many attacking Korea as a whole), there is some doubt about authenticity. Do you think this is real or staged? Watch for yourself in the video below. The 'attack' starts around 1:50.
