So, when a piece of media goes to Southeast Asia, it usually goes on a Holiday In Cambodia. The setting will either be little jungle villages with wooden huts or cities so seedy they leave marks on the screen. Vice will be both upheld and punished, with the main characters either being told "[[AsianHookerStereotype Me love you]] [[YouNoTakeCandle long time]]" by a woman (very often a prostitute) who [[UnsettlingGenderReveal may or may not have a vagina]], or being thrown in some [[HellholePrison hellhole of a prison]] on drug charges. And someone, some time, is getting a gun in the face. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh, and there may be elephants.]]

** Odd, given the more realistic portrayal of Seoul in the Sun and Jin episodes.
*** Since Seoul isn't in Southeast Asia, it actually serves to solidify that this trope is in full effect, and is not just a part of larger ArtisticLicenseGeography issues.
