The math is correct.

Proportionally WAY more Koreans are in America than Americans are in Korea.

Why don't the Koreans go back to their motherland? Because America's better for making money (for the hard working, intelligent, and ambitious that is). Also, less air pollution.

2,546,982 Koreans in the USA.

I believe you specifically said there were more Koreans "desperate to get into the United States of America" than vice versa. The link you provided includes Koreans who already reside in the U.S. and their descendants. Use actual immigration statistics.

The burden of google searching is on the person claiming the other is wrong. And you’ve never proved me wrong on anything, and never will. For now, I’m busy and can’t be bothered. Take care. Good luck finding the stats to support your position. (You’ll need it!)

Uh, no. The burden of providing evidence for one's claim falls on the person making the claim.

Considering you "can't be bothered" (which could be easily shortened to "can't") I'll go ahead and assume you're talking out your ass.

Well, once Korea  starts showing a less hostile and xenophobic attitude towards expats, they should learn to live with their own medicine....what have KOreans done for the US, except be a drain on the treasury ?

I can't imagine Biden being popular with anyone, given how few show up to his fake car rallies.

For Baemin riders, who are full-time delivery workers, the average monthly wage was 4.2 million won
https://www.google.com/amp/m.koreaherald.com/amp/view.php%3fud=20200910000730

Well it seems that the delivery drivers in Korea have a hell of a life with many dying of overwork. TEFL has a way lot to fall to be as bad as this.

From the link you posted, they'd be at 6 million a month, assuming a five day work week.

Why are they working themselves to death for an above average wage?

Heavy debts to pay and / or a family to support (a family in which the wife doesn't work)?

I do feel bad for them; that is super sad.

The link I posted said:

Quote
Baemin connectors usually work four hours a day, three days a week, making an average of 1.6 million won a month.

So 24 hours a week would be 3.2 million a month?

Yes, TEFLs have it better, but the gap is closing. Wages for Koreans have been going up at all levels, professional and beginner, skill and unskilled. But wages for native English teachers have not. Expect things to continue to get slightly worse in the English teaching industry with each passing year. The unfortunate part is is that as time goes by, those who spent time teaching English abroad will have fewer options to do anything else as a decent paying career the longer they stay abroad. They're painting themself into a corner. Looks deteriorate with age. So does fluid intelligence. So does physical strength. So does reaction time. So does the immune system and the ability to stay healthy. The body can become injured more easily with a slower recovery time. Energy and motivation diminishes. Which is why age discrimination in the hiring process is real. The way to overcome this is with the accumulation of in demand transferable hard skills. Something that will make money. Something that makes you not easily replaceable. Specialized expertise. There's already an over saturation of MATESOL, CELTAs, and other certificates. Spending time and money on those might not lead to a university job. Probably won't in fact. You weren't around when it was easy to get a university job and thus don't have the requisite university teaching experience to be hired at one.

"motherland"? you're an absolute clown

motherland
1 one's native land.
2 the land of one's ancestors.
3 a country considered as the origin or source of something.

Despite leftist ideology preaching all-encompassing minority victimization, Asian-American women have earned more than white men throughout all of 2021, federal data show.

https://nypost.com/2021/12/11/asian-womens-success-disproves-of-white-male-supremacy/

Several studies show Asian communities emphasize personal responsibility and self-made success more than other groups. For example, a Pew Research Center survey found that Asian Americans were significantly more likely to believe “most people who want to get ahead can make it if they are willing to work harder” than the general public.

I'm genuinely interested in reading from some of these leftist ideological preachers that you speak of and would appreciate some links to them. I suspect you might be referring to this type of author in similar vein to those American hating commonwealther.
