    Crazy OP.

    SK law permits the removal of foreigners who disturb the public peace.

    This is how it actually works in South Korea where there is no freedom of speech. The Cold War between the two Koreas is a real thing and you could actually be prosecuted for praising the Kim regime. Praising Japan's role in developing Korea in the colonial era is also a criminal offense, by which pro-Japanese right-wing elements have been effectively silenced.

    SK is no paradise of civil liberty protections, of course, but they have been at war since 1950. My last tour of duty there was just as the government was emerging from strong arm dictatorship.
