Sad to say that I heard a little bit of this as well. Very disrespectful and completely out of order, especially given the effort the Koreans had gone to in order to display in this country for us. I would even go as far as to call it racist and those people who were childish enough to do it ought to be ashamed of themselves.

Saturday morning we arrived and placed ourselves (seated) behind the front row towards the western end crowdline. There was about two foot of space in front of us to the people seated on the crowdline. There was no-one within 20feet behind us, as we had chosen somewhere with people using a collection of tents/windbreaks. Just before the yak display began, three guys came and stood between us and the front row of seats, blocking both right and left of our view, leaving a window of about two seconds flying time for us to see anything. What was paticulaly annoying was that two of the three were using telescopic mounts which were taller than us seated (ie they could have stood directly behind us and got the same shots without obstructing our view, or anyone else). A similar story on Sunday.
