The cultural caricature seems downright silly, but some do find this Korean woman's Indian act a bit amusing.

It's from a video of an old Korean sitcom that has now gone viral after a Facebook user, Tejaswini Bukke, shared it. In the video, a Korean woman dressed in a bright red sari and Indian make-up is seen trying to convince a police officer that she is Indian.

"Will you marry me? I am pretty," she keeps asking the Korean policeman in Hindi as he scrambles to get a translator. To complete her act, she then gets up, does a big namaste and tries out Indian dance moves to a music that is supposed to be Indian.

After it was shared on social media, a lot of users panned the cultural stereotyping. Others tried to see the funny side of it.
