Park Bo Gum is being targeted by Chinese netizens for allegedly offending the Great Wall of China. 


The issue arose from a scene of Park Bo Gum's sportswear CF that was revealed earlier this year. The controversial scene captures Park Bo Gum playing the go board game against a person named 'Great Wall of China.' Currently, the actor's victory over the Chinese opponent is gaining criticism.

    "He's trash" uhhhh nooooo the people who set up the props, the director, etc THEY may be trash but not Park Bogum who has no say in the specifics because he signed a contract. Also it's not like chinese commercials are all angelic flying beautiful commercials of peace and equality

    his character in the drama beat out tons of Chinese players at the game. just because they're being clever with the name i don't think it's bad, even if they were to name him Chinese man, it'd be the same thing.

    I'm just curious about something concerning this subject. Was it Park Bo Gum who planned out the segment involving the so called defeat of "the Great Wall of China" in the Go Board game? Like, was he the one who came up with the idea of him being victorious in a Go match against "the Great Wall of China"?
