"No foreigners allowed" into EXO's comeback show

As you may know, EXO's comeback is today and massive swarms of Exotics have been camped outside of M!Countdown since before 8 AM.
However, after waiting outside for 6-12 hours, all foreigners were suddenly kicked out and told the show was essentially Korean-only.

This girl traveled all the way from Europe only to get the proverbial door slammed in her face because she wasn't Korean.



I'm not an Exotic but I'm pressed because Korea needs to stop going on about their supposed "hallyu wave" when they only care about international fans for the sake of domestic glory.

They film every non-Asian fan in the audience at their concerts like we're some sort of exotic animal, but then proceed to engage in racist skits, blackface, xenophobia, and Korean-only practices at home.

Similar stuff has happened with the SNSD fandom where K-Scones look down at international fans as "roaches".
I just don't understand why they don't treat international fans with respect considering we're the reason the "hallyu" bullshit even exists.

SOURCE: onehallyu!

SMH at this entire mess. I'll just be listening to Heart Attack over and over while this all unfolds tbh.
