Song Hye Kyo sat down for yet another interview with Sports Seoul on April 20 where she revealed her surprise that her rejection of 'Mitsubishi's endorsement offer became such a big deal in the media. 

Earlier, the actress had garnered attention for turning down a brand deal from the Japanese automobile maker for their alleged use of forced labor during the colonial era.

Song Hye Kyo stated, "I didn't know how big it became in the media. I was so surprised. I think everyone, not just myself, would have made the same choice had they received such an offer."

What the short-sighted in Korea and here on AKP don't seem to get is that the MORE Koreans are active in Japan, the MORE Japanese kids like kpop, the MORE Japanese women fall in love with k-dramas, the MORE LIKELY it will be that these people will develop positive feelings towards Korea and its culture and the MORE likely they are to pressure their government into finally doing what is necessary to finally put the past to rest to Korea's satisfaction. It is called Soft Power.... influence through cultural export. Boycotts and actions like this will only serve to stir up negative feeling about Korea and push the Japanese into even further stubbornness. It is counter-productive and really only hurts Korean economic interests. Japan and Korea need to cooperate as allies to counter the North Korean threat and prevent being squashed economically and militarily by China, who is the only winner in all this. Japan and Korea will only lose. A Japanese-Korean alliance will bring stability to East Asia and force China to treat its neighbors with respect and not as tributary states as they did for thousands of years.

Agree

Rebel_Patriot Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Toshiba, Canon, Hitachi, Ricoh, Yamaha, and even Sapporo brewing... nearly every major Japanese brand is a derivative of a Zaibatsu that contributed to the Japanese war machine before and during WW2. Koreans are playing a dangerous game. This actress has the right to refuse whatever she wants, but this sentiment on a national scale can backfire on Korea diplomatically as well as economically and culturally. Especially when it comes to kpop and k-tv... Japan is Korea's biggest consumer. Pissing them off can have severe consequences for the k-ent industry.

Koreans' patriotism is too far up their asses to think about the future. They are way too concerned with what happened in the past which is a problem. But in Song Hye Kyo's case, she is not doing this due to her patriotism as she claims. A couple of years ago she had a scandal for not paying her taxes, and although she paid them already, k-netizens still remember that. All these articles of her rejecting the Mitsubishi CF is just media play. Any excuse to hate Japan is enough for Koreans.

Rebel_Patriot veronicavivian Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Then Koreans are lucky the Japanese don't seem to take it personally, especially the younger generation. If they did, and they stopped going to kpop concerts, buying kpop music, and watching k-dramas, the Korean entertainment industry would be fucked. This is the perfect example of biting the hand that feeds you.

You are so dumb, the last time I saw your comment, it was really offensive... and this time it reached the dumb of the dumb.. LOL Don't worry dude, it's been decades that japanese are buying Koreans stuff and it keeps increasing.. you think this case will change anything ? LOLLLLLLLLLL PUHAHAAHA

MyTwoCent Rebel_Patriot Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Japan had enough bitchin...so, Isn't it the reason why Hallyu has shifted to China? Next Korea's gonna bitch about China copying their music and programs..if not already.

_bl4ck Rebel_Patriot Thursday, April 21, 2016

Hallyu is already dying out in Japan (as there has been an increase of anti-korean sentiment), their new target is China. The past is still much prevalent in the present. Victims of Japan's atrocities, mainly the comfort women, are still very much alive and mentally affected by it. The Japanese government still refuses to take full responisbility for their past actions. They just recently set up an $8 million fund for the survivors, in turn that they stop bringing up the issue. All of their atrocities are excluded from their history books, so the average japanese citizen has no idea of their involvement during WW2. Japan should take notes from Germany and acknowledge their wrong doings. If anyone is stuck in the past it's Japan and their refusual to properly apologize– but of course. Japanese nationalist will have none of this.

Look at those dumbass discussing each other when they know nothing about Japan.... Anti Korean sentiment is increasing ? No way dude, it is the opposite ! in the past decades, the japanese used to view Koreans as inferior to them, but recently, they have aknowledge the Kpop wave, and even had some Koreans celeb in their jdrama. Japanese are not politically concerned, most of them do not care at all, specially the youngs. So you think they care about song hye kyo and mitchubichi ? LOLLLLLLL

Pull your head out of your ass you illiterate fool... the Korean domestic market is too small and hyper-competitive for most kpop acts to survive let alone succeed financially. Japan being the 2nd largest music market in the world was a crucial expansion vector that embraced Korean entertainment products on a massive scale. Now that market availability is in decline thanks to Koreans' politicizing everything. And if you think the ChiComs will open their markets freely to Korean entertainment to exploit, you are smoking crack or inhaling your toxic farts too deeply. The Chinese market is not open or free, but government controlled. The Chinese government will never allow Korean entertainment to compete with domestic Chinese entertainment. There will be quotas. Plus despite its economic stature and population, China is still only around the 20th largest music market in the world. So losing Japan is in no way something anyone with a clue would realize it is not something to take lightly you simpleton.

lulzbrooks Rebel_Patriot Thursday, April 21, 2016

I'm going to disagree on one thing.... politicizing on only everything? There are three major things that are being politicized: 1) comfort women, 2) Dokdo, 3) Repatriation of historical Korean artifacts stolen during the colonization period.

Rebel_Patriot lulzbrooks Thursday, April 21, 2016

Where is the outrage against the ChiComs for invading Korea to prevent the unification of Korea and killing tens of thousands of South Korean soldiers and civilians? Not arguing that Korea doesn't have legitimate historical gripes against Japan. And Korean citizens have the right to buy or not buy whatever they want based on their political views. Celebrities have the right as well to endorse or not to endorse as well. But Koreans also have to accept the economic and political consequences such actions could bring in response.

Good choice too since their stocks are tanking due to falsifying economy tests on a fleet of their cars.
