1. [+10785, -809] It's rare to find a country like Korea where you can walk on a street in late night and still be safe ㅋㅋ

2. [+8713, -228] Our country's image is tarnished in many aspects because of North Korea... ugh

3. [+8046, -107] It's because Korea is on a ceasefire

4. [+841, -16] It's obvious from a country that doesn't know much. There's an insane country right above us... No wonder why they see us as dangerous.

5. [+836, -38] Korea is one of the safest countries in the world. You'd know if you've gone overseas. The only country that's as safe as Korea is probably Japan. Even in China and USA, it's hard to walk around in late night except in big cities.

6. [+583, -4] It's because we're on a ceasefire. I understand why other countries think that way.

7. [+590, -25] Make sure you don't get robbed when you're going to Italy ㅋㅋ

8. [+499, -15] Our country also classifies Italy as a dangerous country if you're travelling there because there's a lot of pickpocketing.

Christian, 23 years old, Spanish teacher in Korea

1. [+140, -6] Hul, is he a genius? ㅋㅋ Learning a language by watching TV... Besides, Quiz To Change The World is so boring. He managed to study from that.

2. [+100, -2] He was self-taught. What a determination!

3. [+28, -11] Nacho and jalapeno juseyo, Mexico-nims

4. [+9, -0] Amazing. I watched a lot of fun American dramas but I couldn't learn English from it ㅠㅠ

Christian, "It's not like every Mexican has a gun, it's hard to even find one. I've never experienced a gun incident. It's just a minority of people but it's getting exaggerated and generalized."

1. [+224, -13] Of course he would say it's exaggerated. But the fact is that 26 chiefs of police died in 2014 and even someone who's at a level of a major was murdered in the country. And the reason why it's hard to hear gunshots is because they will drag you to a deserted place, kill you, and bury your body in a desert.

2. [+163, -11] Mexico is a dangerous country

3. [+136, -9] Stereotype, my butt. It's true that the country's safety is one of the worst.

4. [+124, -6] People at a mayor's level that are fighting against Cartels get murdered or threatened. University students that protest against them get arrested by the police and get killed by Cartels with their bodies cut. This is what happens in the country.

5. [+94, -5] Isn't it because of drugs? I heard that drug dealers and the police are united so if you report a drug dealer, you'll be shot to death.

6. [+31, -2] I went to Mexico for 10 days during Chuseok. Yes, it's dangerous. I couldn't go out at night because I was scared. I went there to see my Mexican friend and she said she rode a subway for the first time because of me.

7. [+25, -0] It might be a minority only. But university students that protest all get killed, a female major who wanted to arrest Mexican gangs was raped and burned to death as soon as she retired, and someone who was criticizing an infamous Mexican gang on SNS was hung to death on a highway in Mexico ㅋㅋ Some states are known for growing drugs and travelling in those states is strongly warned.

8. [+24, -1] How is this a stereotype? I went to Mexico last month because of my job and I was scared to death. The natives, gyopos, and everybody kept telling me to never go out at night and not to ride a taxi. I even saw two people who rode a taxi, got driven to a strange place, and barely came out alive. I don't know if he's saying this to get attention but he should say things correctly. The country indeed has terrible safety.
