Intercultural discussion or roleplay: Korean men are touch-feely

This is a short, but great YouTube video for generating some discussion or setting up a roleplay based on cultural differences. These guys are Americans on a show called FightQuest. They go to foreign countries and learn a fighting style and then compete.

In this short clip they talk about wearing a speedo in France (as well as some weird fighting uniform that kind of looks like a wrestler’s singlet) but even better is their discussion of how Korean guys are “touchy-feely”. No doubt the Korean martial arts master who put his hand on the American’s thigh or lap seemed a bit gay to the American men.
