Sungshin Women’s University professor Seo Gyeong-deok gave a shot to Chinese netizens who went on demonizing BLACKPINK following BTS.
Professor Seo Gyeong-deok posted a post on his Instagram on the 9th, pointing out that “there is a lot of controversy as the excessive patriotic movement in China appears. Following BTS, BLACKPINK is also hunting witches this time.”
“There are many cases of famous actors, singers, and politicians taking commemorative photos or videos with their baby pandas with their bare hands. Chinese basketball star Yao Ming also took commemorative photos with their baby pandas with their bare hands.” He posted a picture of a panda touching his bare hands.
Professor Seo said, “It seems that China is afraid of the spread of Korean culture (Hallyu) around the world. I hope that Chinese netizens first learn to understand and respect the culture of other countries.”
Earlier, on the 3rd, Black Pink revealed the scene of meeting with a baby panda in the preview video of the web entertainment program ’24/365 with BLACKPINK’ released on the official YouTube channel on the 3rd. Some netizens in China who watched the panda video criticized that “it is not appropriate to touch the national treasure of China with your bare hands with thick makeup.”
Accordingly, Black Pink’s agency YG Entertainment withheld the video that was scheduled to be released on the 7th and said, “The black pink breeder experience related to pandas was carried out by strict quarantine management and hygiene rules with the participation of professional veterinarians and breeders.”
These days, excessive patriotic movements in China have emerged, causing great controversy.
Following BTS (BTS), this time, BLACKPINK is also subjected to witch-hunt by Chinese.
BLACKPINK recently uploaded YouTube web entertainment videos in sequence, and the members visiting Everland and touching the panda with their bare hands were revealed, and Chinese netizens are hitting it.
However, it is said that many famous actors, singers, and politicians have also taken commemorative photos or videos while holding a baby panda with their bare hands.
As you can see in the photo, Chinese basketball star Yao Ming attended the Panda Research Institute’s Panda Radiation Event with his wife in 2012 and took a commemorative photo while holding a young panda with his bare hands.
Anyway, China is afraid of the rise of Korean culture all over the world.
Please, first of all, Chinese netizens learn to understand and respect the culture of other countries.
