Seems a foreigner would be better off obtaining a degree from outside of Asia. Are there any American or British university branches in Thailand?
As someone who's been in Korea 3 1/2 years now..
The reason hagwons have the most runners is they 1) pay bad, 2) have the worst hours, and 3) hire newbies who don't know better.....
On the other hand, to get a job at a uni you almost certainly have to be in country already (which usually means at least a year experience here), the hours are better, and the vacation amazing (up to 5 months paid vaca per year).
As to Koreans being racist.... some of the worst I've encountered anywhere in the world. But, IMO, that has nothing to do with the requirements for an English teacher (and the teacher's degree) to be from a native English speaking country.
