I have to say that I am more than annoyed with all the markets, eating places, marketplaces, etc.catering to only the Korean community. I live off Beach between Malvern and Rosecrans, am not Korean, and yet I have to drive miles to a regular grocery store even to just pick up a few things. This community has whites, hispanics, indians, koreans, and other races. When they closed Ralphs down a year ago, I attempted to buy produce in the huge Korean marketplace on the corner of Malvern/La Mirada and Beach. The issue wouldnt be half as bad if the owners even pretended to want your business. They are rude, there is no hello, goodbye, please, thank you....all of which is custom etiquette here in the USA. Instead you get a feeling you are not welcome there! And this happened with a few of the food/ boba places also. Imagine my dismay to find that another sprawling Korean market would be taking the place of Ralphs, and directly across from the other one! They are now building almost to completion, a HUGE shopping center on the nirthwest corner. According to the owners of the car wash next door to the slmost complete, new center, it will
also be all Korean. They stated they had even calked Trader Joes cirporate offices to tell them how not only would a TraderJoe's do really well here, but it is much needed and perfect location. Those requests were ignored. Instead, more Korean shopping. We are moving OUT and know many people that are following suit or have moved already. Again, it is much easier to tolerate inconvenience if you are treated with respect but these people, whether in their businesses are just walking down the street are simply unfriendly and lack common courteosy altogether!

The absolutely best bussy in the world lives between the legs of every Korean woman between the ages of 18 and 58. Bring 'em on.
