    It used to be only Chinese fugitives and criminals in the Phl.  Now, Koreans who once were students here are now criminals.

    Hey Inquirer! The title of your column is vague & misleading.

      LOL I agree, the headline made me think ALL Koreans were barred from leaving the entire Philippines…

     marami pang illegal na koreano sa bataan. nagta trabaho at nagnenegosyo dun pero ang mga permit nila nakakapagtaka kung pano naka kuha. may mga driver, supervisor sa construction, interpreter, na dapat locals na ang gumagawa ayon sa batas. pati yung mga ibinebenta nila mas mababa pa sa mga local goods, siguro idinadaan sa SBMA. pulubi yata ung mga opisyales ng gobyerno sa bataan: mga bulag, pipi at bingi. pati ung ibang korean company dun, may di nagbabayad ng SSS, overtime, holiday pay. dapat ipatapon ung mga opisyales ng gobyerno
