After School's Lizzy has been targeted by Japanese netizens for showing her patriotism. 


Recently, Lizzy uploaded various photos from her visit to Dodo Island - a landmark in continuous territorial disputes between Korea and Japan. She also posed holding up the Korean flag, even using it as a cute accessory for her hair. In her caption, she added the Korean flag emoji, saying, "Dokdo is our land."

Unfortunately, the idol star's recent updates don't seem to sit well with her Japanese fans. They criticized, "Do you not have any consideration for Japanese fans? You are not just anyone but a singer promoting in Japan. You should've thought twice about uploading these", "It's okay to say you've visited Dokdo, but to continously show the Korean flag like that is offensive to Japanese fans. You are stupid", "This is why K-Pop has a bad image in Japan", and more. 


On the other hand, Korean netizens showed support for Lizzy's actions, even showering her with compliments. 


Some of Lizzy's controversial posts can be spotted below. What are your thoughts on the criticism?

    i think i'm in the minority that find it cool that she expresses love for korea even when in another country (i'm not korean). But lizzy please stop with the plastic surgeries. you are starting to look like another person.

    Leave History and move on. If you're going to always bring up history and hold flags like that while promoting in Japan or anywhere where history is involved, then you deserve the hate.
