Media outlets reported of an incident which occurred along a disputed area situated in the South China Sea. The incident involved two Vietnamese boats which were allegedly chased and sunk by Chinese coastguard ships this past Saturday afternoon. The Chinese coastguards reportedly boarded one of the Vietnamese boats, struck five Vietnamese sailors, and then sunk the vessel. The sailors, who were forcibly thrown overboard when the vessel submerged, remained stranded at sea until the second Vietnamese boat was able to approach them and rescue them out of the water.
It seems that some Vietnamese people, enraged at this political dispute, took their anger out on YoonA, who has been promoting actively in China.
While some people used YoonA's Instagram to express their opinions on the ongoing dispute between Vietnam and China, most fans from both countries seem to be supportive, telling her not to mind the whole business and to take care of herself.
We can only hope that YoonA or her promotions weren't affected by this conflict!
