1. [+2,240, -49] Instead of giving money to them, how about we instead buy the vegetables that halmonis sell on the streets

2. [+1,980, -15] So they have no money but want to go on vacation and don't want to work to save up?

3. [+1,214, -13] Why should I have to pay to hug you? Huh, why????????????

4. [+90, -2] I find it so ridiculous how white people act like they're superior for being white... It makes me sick to see Korean ads featuring white models when the people who are going to be spending money on those products are Korean...

5. [+66, -0] They just think we're a joke

6. [+60, -1] The people who at least make something to sell show effort but free hugs are basically asking for free money. That doesn't make me want to help him... Go do some labor work in the farms if you want to make money for your vacation.

7. [+44, -0] Can we please be stricter with these things? Ask them exactly how much they have before admitting them into the country. We're asked how much we have when we travel abroad in America or Europe, why not them?

8. [+39, -1] It's not that they're poor, they just don't want to spend any of their own money. They must think Koreans will be eager to help as long as they say some nice things about Korea but this is illegal and police should be regulating it.

9. [+35, -0] You should be working for your vacations, so pathetic

10. [+31, -0] Those aren't free hugs, those are pay to hugs

11. [+27, -0] Even if it's a part of their culture or whatever doesn't mean that we need to be understanding of it
