Korea: Offensive foreigners

A bunch of foreigners who decided to make a drunken scene in a Seoul subway, included singing a song that degraded Korean (and Japanese) women. And then posting a video of their adventure on Youtube (all removed). Robert Koehler from Marmot's Hole was very angry and speechless towards the scene. While Michael Hurt questioned: Is this typical of foreigners’ behavior in Korea? If not, and by definition, is it particularly newsworthy?
