Actually, I rocked the boat by throwing a student out of class for swearing at me when I marked him late when he was trying to cheat VTC's meaningless class attendance system. I was also a pain in the behind to management by showing them plagiarized assignments, which they pretended to not believe were plagiarized. So yes, you could say I was naive and I started it by thinking my supervisors would have moral principles. I knew the students wouldn't be HK's best but I was new to the area and despite looking VTC up had no idea what a disgrace to academia it was, least of all because of the quality of the students who go there.

If you aren't used to it having come from Korea, then maybe you need to give up on Asia.

I dunno about Korea, but I've seen similar in private money making schools in Romania, Saudi, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and HK. Actually, usually the management humoured me, said how shocking it was, then quietly sat on the info. If you want to go up a notch, you could try the British Council. They do a better job of humouring you. (ie. wag finger at student, then forget about it)
