1. [+962, -31] What a load of bullsh*t

2. [+361, -33] Employ some handsome male maids too..

3. [+305, -83] I can already tell the type of people who would frequent such a place..

4. [+49, -2] I feel like this kind of stuff doesn't really fit the vibe of our country.... how long could it last?

5. [+37, -7] I don't know how I could stand working at such a place without feeling bad about myself.. What if someone you know walks in as a customer?...

6. [+18, -4] Why are we copying stuff like this ㅋ this is embarrassing

7. [+17, -6] People are so quick to blame stuff like this on being a negative influence on the youth but do you even see the current state of our youth as it is? Do you think all of Japan's youth are evil because they have maid cafes??

8. [+10, -0] Wait, there's a photo zone with a bath tub next to the bathrooms?? That feels perverted.

9. [+10, -3] A negative influence on our youth? How about we worry about keeping the areas around Hongdae clubs safe. People should be free to do what they want within the confines of the law.

10. [+7, -2] Such a useless import

11. [+7, -3] I feel like I couldn't help but judge customers who go there to be perverts

12. [+4, -0] I feel like going at all would feel so embarrassing ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ I wouldn't want to eat at such a place

13. [+4, -0] They're going to struggle finding servers to hire

14. [+6, -3] You guys are making such a big deal over this when our streets are already filled with seedy establishments. It's just a restaurant ㅋㅋㅋ and we all know the type of people who would go there anywhere and it's none of our concern

15. [+5, -3] To all the people saying this isn't a big deal, stop and think how you'd feel if your daughter was working there

1. [+470, -86] This is crazy... we have nothing better to import so we import crap like this? I'm speechless

2. [+409, -78] Gross... I feel like this new generation lacks the pride we still had as people even when we were without. Nowadays, kids grow skin as thick as steel and will do anything for money...

3. [+332, -55] I suppose the place will be full of glasses-wearing, pimple-faced pigs ㅋㅋㅋ

4. [+35, -10] The establishment already sounds seedy, I doubt any normal person would go to such a place...

5. [+12, -4] Can we please just leave some cultures to their own? There's no need for us to be bringing that kind of stuff over here. 

6. [+11, -1] Businesses like this are targeting male consumers but men don't go to cafes that often. Maybe once or twice out of curiosity but this doesn't sound like a good long-term business idea.

7. [+11, -6] It'll be full of MZ generation idiots

8. [+10, -4] It's technically not illegal or anything but it doesn't feel right

9. [+9, -3] This is great, let's get a bikini cafe going as well

10. [+8, -5] They'll go out of business fast
